Why the name? Our faith is what drives us and we believe we are all called to be like the prodigal son, who realized the error of his ways, was repentant, and returned to God. He became new by rejoicing in being God’s wonderful creation redeemed by the blood of His Son, Jesus. (Luke 15:11-32)

GETTING TO KNOW ME
Thank you for taking the time to find out more about the blog and my purpose. I am Larissa, owner of Prodigal Pieces – my entrepreneurial beginning. My life has many facets, homeschooling mother to 6 glorious children, homemaker, avid real food advocate, gardener, crafter in all its forms (crochet, sewing, needlepoint, painting, woodworking…you name it!), and wife to my wonderful high-school sweetheart, who is my behind-the-scenes partner in this business.
In my past, I have earned a college degree majoring in Interpersonal & Organizational Communication with a minor in Business Administration. During my collegiate career, I have had photography, Bible, and various other courses which have brought me to where I am today. I even had the opportunity to work on the college paint crew. (you can learn oodles by hands-on applications!)
As a child, I grew up in a family of 6 and one of my quirks was to rearrange my mother’s house at a whim. She would come home to find the furniture in a totally different arrangement or would hear my furniture scooting across the floor in my bedroom at which she would call out, “What are you doing up there?” Or I would be secretly raiding my dads wood stash and tools to create toys.
Although I enjoy my business, my family comes first. The business is the “icing on the cake” for me. Fun, profitable, and, hopefully, a blessing to those I come in contact with.
I would love to hear from you! You can message me at [email protected].
