MIDLAND, Texas (Big 2/FOX 24) – “Be Our Change” is our positive, inspirational segment. We’re highlighting a new business in the Basin. The goal of that business is simple; a Midland woman is using her talent to bless others.
For most of her career, Robin Wilson has been a musician, even serving as a worship leader. When you’re a worship leader, your job is to prepare people’s hearts for the sermon and the word of God to come, said Wilson.
But these days, the Midland woman is preparing people’s hearts differently. Wilson said, “If it hadn’t been for Covid, I probably would never have started this business. I had just wanted to bring some hope to the people around me.”
“I am just so proud to see her at this stage of her life to step out and start a new business,” said Leah Williams, Wilson’s daughter.
The new business is called “Birdie’s Bites. Her specialty, delicious lemon bars and they always come with something special inspired by her faith.
“I always include a scripture card, and I write a handwritten note on each order,” said Wilson.
Williams said, “Just seeing how people have responded and been so supportive since she’s launched her business has just been a confirmation, that it just was part of God’s plan, after all, said Williams.
“Everything about this business is a blessing,” said Williams. “It involves answers to prayer and things that are happening that I would have never dreamed of.”
“I think what makes the Permian Basin such a great community is that there are so many giving people out there,” said Williams.
So, focus on your talent, be one of those giving people like Williams and “Be Our Change.”
Williams and her daughter have talked about expanding Birdie’s Bites in the future. Hopefully, their long-term plan is to add children’s books to the mix using the same little bird as a character.
