The Praise Props Shoppe

My mom had passed away in January, and I am unavailable to accept orders at this time.
I appreciate your understanding and patience.
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might... For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. 
Ephesians 6:10, 12

God's word says: It's 'Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,' says the Lord of hosts. (Zechariah 4:6).  We are not to become stagnant in our walk with Him.  I encourage each of you to seek Him with your whole heart and invest more time in His word this new year to receive a fresh anointing of His Presence.  Do not rely on past experiences, but strive after the goal He has set forth for you.  Enjoy His challenges, for you are being refined as gold.  Walk in all His ways and you will be blessed with His peace throughout the year.

Welcome to our web site!

The Praise Props Shoppe offers a variety of flags, tambourines and accessories for creative Christian praise & worship using movement with an emphasis on utilizing the Word of God to lift up the name of the Lord.  Each of our items were made specifically for the glory of God, so it is important that each one is prayed over and made with this goal in mind.  After much prayer, we have decided not to out-source our items, as some suppliers may do (which is the easier way), but chose to continue offering our props made in-house (except for the tambourines & rings).  You may pay a little more (or not!), but know that each are made for a specific purpose.  I believe that God has been guiding me in a little different direction with this ministry.  It has been placed on my heart to begin offering more dancer resources, such as books and bible studies, that equip the worshipper with spiritual-growth-material that will enable them to worship not only in the physical but, more importantly, in the the spirit.  I believe we are experiencing the last days before our Bridegroom returns, and the Lord seeks those who worship Him both in Spirit and in Truth (see John 4:23-24).  In order to do this, we must have an intimate relationship with Him, investing time daily in His word.  We need to KNOW the Person to whom our praise and worship is being offered!  Check out our "Seeking A Worshipper's Heart" page, and keep checking back to see these new items - they are coming soon!

Our logo represents the vision that the Lord had given me of what praise & worship may look like in the spiritural realm.  The BIG hand symbolizes the hand of God (representing the people being in His presence).  It is the right hand, symbolizing God's authority, power, and blessing (see Exodus 15:6).  The nail/cross combination represents Jesus' sacrifice.  The adult and child are looking to Him as they lift their flag & streamer, representing that all focus should be on Him and not on us.  If done with the right spirit, people will be ushered into His presence and will be drawn to Him as we lift up His name (see John 12:32).  The water running from the nail down the cross, spilling off of the Hand represents the Living Water (Ps. 36:8-9) or Holy Spirit that rejuvinates, cleanses, and heals us when we come into His presence as we worship and praise Him.  I feel that the Lord is leading me into a new direction, and making everything brand-new (Isa. 42:9).  I feel His leading to place an emphasis on the POWER that is available to everyone as we come into His mighty presence in praise and worship (Psalm 149:6). 

We are here to accommodate both the seasoned praise dance team, as well as the individual who worships at home (like me!).  Our goal is to equip everyone with items that will continually remind them that the battle does NOT belong to us, but to God (see 2 Chronicles 20:15-17), and to offer the knowledge of His word to help to walk a victorious life.  We just need to learn to release the authority to Him to fight that battle that has already been won in the heavenlies.  Our praise and our worship does just that.  Learn to walk a life of continuous praise and see that there's power in His presence!

Psalm 127:3 - "Behold, children are a gift of the Lord; The fruit of the womb is a reward."  These words are so dear to my heart, and I wanted to say just a few quick words of praise to God for all He is doing and continues to do in my life.  I am so thankful for the family I have been blessed with and for the opportunity to fellowship with other people who also love to talk about what the Lord is doing in their own lives.  It has also allowed me to stay home full-time to raise my children (which He knew was my heart's desire).  How very true it is that if we seek Him with all our hearts He will bless us beyond what we can comprehend.  I am humbled knowing that the Lord has entrusted me with so much, and just wanted to say thank you for all the support and encouragement I receive from both my customers as well as people who visit my site.  May He bless you all abundantly!

These items are to be used as instruments of praise or weapons of warfare for the King of all kings, but we are to remember -- the battle belongs to the Lord!  We're a constant 'work in progress', and we'd love to hear from you with any input or suggestions you're like to share with us.  Everything on this site is "made to order", and I'd be happy to alter any of my items from ideas you may have, or work with you to create something original from a vision of your own - I'm here to serve you!  Be sure to visit again soon, and may the Lord bless you!


The Lord has placed it upon my heart to share with you a bit about the use of flags and streamers for praise & worship. He has been transforming my own heart from one of a performer, to one instead who looks to Him for approval and acceptance. Our God seeks for us to worship Him in Spirit and in Truth (see John 4:23). He is not as concerned about the outward appearance of our technique or unison or props but looks directly to the heart of the worshipper.  We need to be offering Him a worthy sacrifice.  In the same way we sing a song of praise or utter a prayer, so, too, should our movements be as incense; and the lifting up of our hands be like the evening sacrifice (see Psalm 141:2). Our hearts should be directed on Him as we offer our bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing in His sight (see Romans 12:1).
My prayer for you is that you experience the fullness of His joy and peace as you offer to Him a sacrifice that brings Him glory and honor and praise.  As we seek His face, may we have clean hands and a pure heart so that our offerings may be as a sweet perfume set before our Creator.
2 Corinithians 2:14 - But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of Him.
