Celebrating the Start of our 30th Year!

Today is a very special day! 29 years ago, on November 5th, 1985, Premier Designs was incorporated. It was a wonderful day; I remember it well!Picture1 One that Joan and I had prayed about for a long time. It is absolutely amazing what God has done and is doing through this company dedicated to serving others and honoring Him.

As we start our 30th year – WOW – I want to give you a BIG CONGRATULATIONS and thank each of you for being a part of the Premier Family. You are so special and have contributed to the success of Premier these 29 years.

As in any venture, there have been ups and downs, heartaches and happiness. It hasn’t always been easy, but it has been most worthwhile. Even through the painful times, there has been an inner peace that can only come from God.

One of the keys to our endurance is our total belief that God is in this business. We have relied on His Word and still do, seeking God’s will and direction. He gave Joan and me many verses of promise. These promises were written down and prayed about daily before founding Premier. These promises helped us to acquire a confidence that gave us hope, strength and assurance to carry on, and on, and on.

Promises – God’s promises – mean a lot to me. Since I was a little boy, my mother taught me that every promise in the Book was mine. Here are a couple of the many …

Picture2“Being confident of one thing, that God who began a good work in you, will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.” – Philippians 1:6

“’For I know the plans I have for you,’” says the Lord. “’They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.’” – Jeremiah 29:11

I am amazed at what God is doing. Our basic establishments of Premier have not changed – our Philosophy, our Purpose, our Plan. We are built on the Biblical Principles of giving, loving and serving others. Premier is a company that is permeated with service.

There is not another company on earth that has been blessed with people who care, share and who have the vision of Premier. There are still many, many people who need encouragement, who need to be reaffirmed of their worth, who need fellowship, who need financial security. Our Purpose to enrich every life we touch can never be fulfilled. Yes, Premier can be the answer! We must remember, it’s in the enriching of others that we, the Premier Family, are enriched. May I remind you that the road to future success is called SERVICE. In building Premier, we must stay on this road to fulfill its purpose and bless all who are involved.

Pray for us as we seek God’s wisdom and direction, and we will give God the glory as the miracles continue. We are thankful for the past, rejoicing in the present and hopeful for the future.

To God be the glory,

Andy

  4. Happy Anniversary Premier Designs! It has been a wonderful, challenging, life-changing opportunity. I am so thankful to have had the honor of being a part of Premier Designs since February of 1987.. God knew my love of fashion and the desire to honor Him in my life’s work. The answer came through the obedience and faithfulness of Andy and Joan. The impact of the Horner family has now been felt around the world.The continued success of the field has been the encouragement, faithfulness and example of Elizabeth and Randy Draper who have served almost the entire 30 years! Thank you Premier associates, leadership, jewelers, hostesses and customers who have impacted my life and made this momentous day a reality.

  11. I never would have thought that I would be doing anything like Premier and now I can’t imagine my life without Premier. I have SO MUCH appreciated being able to stay at home with my children and help with the income and bills at the same time. Now that my children are all grown and I am empty nest, I am looking forward to helping other women have the same opportunity!!!
    I am so proud to be part of a company that was founded on Biblical Principles and continues to be today – I can share my faith and my relationship with Christ and not be afraid. When caring for a patient one time (I am a nurse), I offered to pray with them and got reported. I can be open and share the hope that we can have in Christ without any hesitation. What a blessing.
    Andy, it is great to be part of your family in Premier. I pray for you and for the company daily and look forward to carrying on your dream and the hope that you had when you started – praise the Lord for your interest in others and continuing His work and in return, you have offered the same home to thousands of others.
    Happy Birthday, Premier and may the joy of serving God and others continue and be multiplied hundredfold!!!!
