About Us

About Sunillow Designs

Sunillow Designs was created by Diane and Carly Roark.  A mother and daughter team that wanted a way to encourage people of all walks of life.  One of our favorite ways to encourage others is with Bible Verses.  You will find scripture on many of our pillow designs and encouraging words and uplifting messages.  Everyone goes through hard times and simply needs to hear an encouraging word.  We hope our pillow designs will help lift your spirits and warm your heart.

Sunillow Designs Gives Back

Sunillow Designs and our customers have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of orphans.  The strategy is simple.  Sunillow Designs will donate 10% of our proceeds on every pillow that is sold to help orphans through Show Hope.  Show Hope is an organization whose sole mission is orphan care.  They work to restore hope by helping waiting children find loving families.  

We are not all called to adopt, but we are all called to help orphans.

“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”  James 1:27 

Why did we choose to support Show Hope?  

My husband and I adopted two children in 2006.  They both have suffered from Reactive Attachment Disorder.  Because of our adoption experience, we know the need for all kids to have a loving home at the earliest age possible.  In this, we feel called to do more for orphans in need of a family.

Have you ever heard the Starfish Story?

A boy was walking on the beach tossing one starfish at a time back into the ocean trying to save them.  A man approached the boy picking up starfish and throwing them back into the sea.  He said, “You must be crazy.  There are thousands of miles of beach with starfish on them.  How could you possibly make a difference?"  The boy picked up another starfish and tossed it into the ocean.  He said, “it sure made a difference in the life of that ONE.”  

Like the boy who made a difference in that one starfish, we keep trying to make a difference in this world.  Even through the struggles with dealing with Reactive Attachment Disorder, lots of prayers, pain, agony, and tears, we know we made a small difference by adopting.  So many families would love to adopt but simply cannot afford it.  If we can give money to help others adopt, one more child’s life could be changed.  One more child could learn that they are loved and that God loves them. 

Sunillow Designs Inspiration

Although all of our pillows are encouraging, we chose to design the pillows around the themes of Faith, Travel, Seasonal, and Medical.  

Why Faith Design Pillows?

Our Faith pillows include some of our favorite Bible verses.  They are created based on our belief in God and His son, Jesus, who died for us. 

Why Travel Design Pillows?

Our family loves to travel.  We often blog about our experiences on our travel blog, Our American Travels

Why Seasonal Design Pillows?

The best way to change out the décor of your house for every season without spending a lot of money is by changing out your pillows. It's quick and easy!

Why Medical Design Pillows?

Carly is a Pediatric resident.  She loves to teach and encourage others to become medical doctors.  Doctors of Tomorrow is where you will find her encouraging other college and medical students often.
