Let There Be Light!

The background on the meaning of the word “Shekinah” & why it was chosen to be the name of my candle company:

If you have ever seen the movie, “The Ten Commandments” or read the story from the Bible, you'll remember that the Israelite people were finally set free and were able to begin their journey out of Egypt.

Exodus 13:20-22 states:

“So they took their journey [that is, the children of Israel] from Succoth and camped in Etham at the edge of the wilderness. And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so as to go by day and night. He did not take away the pillar of cloud by day or the pillar of fire by night from before the people.”  It was something that was always there.

This is why our signature scent here at Shekinah True scents is the “Shekinah Scent”...It is grey in color to symbolize the cloud which represents God’s leading and guidance on this company. It’s a fruity scent (pomegranate) and smells so good!! When I go into people’s homes to do an in-home show, I love to tell that story.

Lake Latonka Fall Festival

  • Lake Latonka 420 Latonka Drive Mercer, PA united states (map)

The Lake Latonka Fall Festival began in 1980 as a craft fair. The large red activity barn and its grounds provided a perfect location for a fall craft fair, and scenic Lake Latonka provided the perfect backdrop. The original festival included mostly crafters, and has grown through the years to include a wide variety of crafters, businesses and non-profits from around the region. The festival has always relied on volunteers from the community of Lake Latonka to make things work. Our dedicated volunteers cut vegetables by hand for our famous homemade soup, which you can get along with other delicious homemade offerings in our kitchen. Parking and admission are free, so our guests can be good patrons for our loyal vendors. The festival features all-day live entertainment, plus an all-day raffle with over $1,500 in prizes. There is a winner every fifteen minutes! You can also join in the Chinese Auction thanks to the generosity of our vendors!

In 2015 we decided to try something that would make the festival larger and better than ever: We added a second location, in our community building overlooking the beach at Lake Latonka. The results have been tremendous! The festival now boasts right around 120 vendors, with more than ever inside in case of sketchy fall weather. A free shuttle bus runs all day between the two locations, which are only a mile apart. We also feature a water taxi, courtesy of Nye's Marina, so guests can take a boat ride between locations on beautiful Lake Latonka!
