Meet The Christiansen Family

Hello!  We are Carl and Shaylee Christiansen.  Raising two beautiful little girls on a farm in Northwest Iowa, our life keeps us on our feet and is full of much excitement.  

We are a faith-based business and desire to share the hope of Christ in and through our company. Beards & Bows was an idea that was birthed out of a desire to see family relationships strengthened.  God has given fathers the role of displaying His character and heart to their children. Family is God’s design and the focus of our business.

Carl is also the founder of non-profit organization, Beauty Amidst The Ashes, Inc.  Beauty Amidst The Ashes exists to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ by advocating and educating individuals and families about adoption.  It is our desire to bring the hope of Christ into each life story and motivate people to engage in caring for children who need families. 

The financial cost associated with adoption is a great barrier for many adopting families. The Hope Project funds adoption grants through the Beauty Amidst The Ashes Adoption Grant Program.  

Thank you for joining with us in our journey.
