I have been blessed to be a part of the Premier family since I was 7 years old when my mom joined Premier to just pay off a little debt. Premier quickly became a lifestyle for our entire family. After only two years, my mom was able to quit her full-time job and stay at home with me and my brother. Because of the flexibility of Premier, both of my parents were able to pour so much love and time into us—whether it was coaching our sports team, going on our school trips, or even driving me eight hours for 15 weekends in a row so that I could play in a more competitive basketball league. Yes, Premier allowed my family to take yearly vacations together, eat family dinners together, and create lasting memories. That is something that I can never thank my parents or the Horners enough for.

Not many kids grow up wanting to be a jewelry lady, and not many can say that they could do a Jewelry Show by the age of 10 either! As soon as I turned 18, I knew that I wanted to start my Premier business. The flexibility of being my own boss allowed me to go to college full-time, play collegiate basketball, and still earn extra spending money.

I worked my business part-time and full-time, all while solely focusing on profits and myself. After four years, I left Premier for the corporate world. Even after all those years of hearing Andy Horner preach about enriching lives, serving others and focusing on people not profits, I didn’t fully understand.  I wasn’t thinking about enriching other lives, just my own. Man, was I wrong! As it turns out, God had a completely different plan for me.

I started my second journey in Premier in 2008 with a whole different mindset. During this time, I felt God start tugging at my heart to go into ministry but I had no clue where to begin or where to look. 2011 National Rally changed my business. Something finally clicked. It wasn’t until then that I truly began to understand my purpose in Premier—serving others. God was already trusting me with a huge ministry of enriching lives every day. Premier helps challenge me daily to find a servant’s heart.

Now that I am officially full-time, God has opened up so many doors for me and my husband, Daniel. Because of Premier, I have the ability to contribute to our household income and I have the flexibility to now plan yearly mission trips for groups to go to Romania. Daniel and I have been able to grow closer to each other and to God by working together on the mission field. Through Premier, I have developed lasting friendships with girls on my team and ladies all across America. Premier has allowed me to not only work from home, but to enrich lives, love on people daily, all while contributing to my real passion, missions.

God has a plan for me to serve others and to be successful all through Premier. Success in the world’s eyes is judged by things you have or are able to do, but I believe that success in God’s eyes is reaching out and helping others. I’m so glad that Premier allows each and every one of us to reach a level of unimaginable success! Not only do we have a fun way of making money and providing for our families, but we also have a platform to serve God and others through Premier.


We Know God Called Us to Premier!

When I began my Premier journey over five years ago, I was on crutches. After a horseback-riding accident and surgery just months before, I was having a difficult recovery. Since then, I have had three more surgeries. Two of those were in 2014. Also, through my exposure in Premier to the concept of “servant leadership,” I decided to pursue a Master’s degree in Organizational Leadership ( I graduate in May!). Plus, Brad and I have three boys, whom we homeschool. The oldest was diagnosed as bipolar at age seven, but just recently received a new diagnosis of high-functioning autism. Our Premier family has been huge in walking with us through these trials.

Premier has been a major influence in our life through the example of the Horner Family and marketing staff, and also our local leaders, upline, downline and sideline. Our Premier family is our closest circle of friends. They have become the people with whom we do life. They are the ones who helped us celebrate the birth of our third son, as well as the first ones to volunteer to bring food and offer help during my two surgeries last year. It has influenced us positively, in that while we were already walking with Christ, it brought a new level of integrity into our lives that we hadn’t previously experienced. We have loved sharing Christ and His plan of salvation through our business with others. Our business is not just a way to pay our bills, but it is truly our ministry. We know God has called us to Premier to be a light for others. We are humbled at the amazing things God is doing in us and through us.

During my first four years with Premier I continued to work my full-time job, but this past August, God called us to take the leap of faith and work Premier full time—both of us! Our current goals are to sponsor two new Jewelers a month and hold at least eight shows per month. I was able to attend Regional Rally, in a wheelchair pushed by Brad, and in the last two weeks of January, we not only achieved the Consistency Challenge, but also sponsored four new Jewelers! We give God all the glory for our harvest! Recently we reached our goal of Designer Circle and qualified for the Designer Trip to Canada. We are striving for Four Diamond Designer and praying to celebrate our 10th Anniversary on the Cabo trip! Our theme is “Pray as if it depends on God and work as if it depends on us!”


irish-blessingSaint Patrick – A Man of Faith!

Saint Patrick – patron saint of Ireland. Did you know that he wasn’t born in Ireland? At a young age, pirates kidnapped him and many others from their homes in Great Britain and sold them into slavery in Ireland. During those six years when he was mostly imprisoned, he dreamed of seeing God. In his dreams, God told him how to escape. He followed God’s plan and returned home to Britain where he became a bishop. Again he dreamed, this time about returning to Ireland to tell them about God.

His ministry covered all of Ireland, from the north to the south, from the poorest to the royal families. He was confident in the Lord with untiring zeal. He set up schools, churches and monasteries during the 20 years he served the Irish. He was beloved and his life is celebrated each year on March 17th.

When I was growing up in Ireland, I remember how everyone always made the day such a big deal. It was a big celebration. What a difference Saint Patrick made in the lives of the Irish people—one man, obedient to God’s call, preaching the gospel and changing a nation. We can enjoy our own celebrations with laughter and songs and blarney and shamrocks, but the real meaning of Saint Patrick’s Day is rooted in a man dedicated to sharing the gospel.

As we reach out together to enrich every life we touch, let’s thank God for the opportunity to provide a service, encouragement, affirmation, recognition and appreciation.

Andy_siloGreenHatHappy Saint Patrick’s Day from an Irishman who loves and appreciates you. May God
bless you!

You Can’t Out Give God

Joan_&_Andy_-_kids When we signed up in Premier in August of 1986, we were looking for something for Pauline to do when we started a family, so she would be able to quit her job and still have some money coming in. We were so excited with the opportunity Premier provided for income and friendships. We never knew the incredible impact Premier, as well as Joan and Andy, would have in our lives!!!

There was just something amazing about spending time with the Horners that changed our perspective on many things. Their love and compassion for others and their concern to help people know Jesus has been an incredible testimony. It was special having them in our home. Andy has always loved getting to know the Premier Leadership personally. It was amazing how Joan remembered our kids’ names and asked about them by name each time we were together! It was amazing for our kids to know them as well since they grew up hearing stories about Joan and Andy.

Growing up around a lot of pastors, I saw them act differently in public than they did in private. But being around Joan and Andy for over 25 years, I saw what it meant to live a real and genuine life. It was humbling when they would call us personally and pray along with us about our personal, non-Premier lives – whether it was about a job, the kids, or moving back to Texas! I remember one time Andy cared enough to call and pray with me when when I was working long hours and traveling a lot – getting frustrated and burned out at work. That meant so much to me.

From the beginning, Andy has never talked about making money or achieving titles, only about enriching lives by loving others and helping them succeed – making money would happen as a by-product. He said remember that God created everyone with value and worth! He always talked about people needing a dose of hope!

Joan and Andy had a profound impact in our lives. These are just a few of the things they have taught us about over the years:

  1. Loving and Serving others – expecting nothing in return. For most people this is not easy to do, but they were such loving examples of how to repeatedly show love.
  2. Accepting others – as they are. They constantly set the example of letting others know what they believe, but they accepted them as they were because Christ accepted us.
  3. Keeping It Personal – We implemented Joan’s mission early on in our Premier career. It is a great feeling appreciating and caring for others by writing notes and being a part of their lives.
  4. Being a Servant Leader – They were always putting others first, even in difficult situations. I will never forget the time we went to Florida and Andy served as our bellman.
  5. You can’t out give God – The more you give away, the more God blesses you. We have been able to see them live this out in their lives in numerous instances. They were just the most giving people we have ever been around.

Joan and Andy were incredible business leaders – but more than anything, they had such practical advice for loving people where they were and encouraging people! When you think about it – their legacy can have a profound impact on your life!!!Toronto Loving people, encouraging them to be all God called them to be, doing life together – you will build a business.

It was so refreshing and impressive to witness their concern for others and then giving of their financial resources. They genuinely and faithfully have lived out their motto – you can’t out give God!!

Because of the example that Joan and Andy lived, they have had a tremendous impact in our lives towards local and national missionaries! Their example has given us a passion to use our time, talent and treasure for missions.

I can’t even imagine where our lives would be without the examples of Joan and Andy Horner, as well as being a part of Premier Designs!
