Our Story

 
Welcome to Rustic Grains and thank you for taking time out of your day to look around.  We want to share a little bit about us: who we are as a business, a family, and a couple.  Daniel and I began this journey with humble hearts, big dreams, and a whole lot of faith. 
 
We started noodling on the idea of starting this business and briefly ran it by family and friends to get their thoughts.  We prayed for guidance and clarity as we began to think through our name, products, and mission.  God then placed on our hearts Matthew 17:20 “He replied, “Because you have so little faith.  Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move.  Nothing will be impossible for you.”  This verse rings loud and clear to us each and every day in everything that we do.  From our company name, Rustic Grains, to working with grains of wood.  See the correlation, faith as a grain of mustard seed… 
 
Little did we know that when we started this business it was just the start to our journey.  On October 24th, 2019, we lost our home and shop to a fire the took most all of our belongings. There was very few things left as we picked through the rubble going room to room.  A few of the things that were found as we dug were our family pictures still hanging on the studs as well as our family bible that was perfectly intact.  
 
God had his hand on our family that day as Daniel was the only one home when it happened and he was safe from harm.  We can replace most all of the things that were lost that day, even though difficult, what matters that most if that we are all still here together.
 
Since the fire, our family has had a full array of emotions and struggles daily.  It's not just something that "goes away", we still deal with something related to the fire each day.  However, we look at the loss as the biggest blessing our family has and most likely will ever have.  God showed us so much that day and each day following that we have learned and grown so much for the better for.  God has continued to provide for us and taught us how strong our faith in him needs to be to continue on.  
 
So here we are, diving in on faith with the hopes that what we love to create, you'll love to enjoy!  We want our pieces to help mold your house into a home for you and your families; create spaces that are unique and welcoming to family and friends; help foster family time and being with each other.  All of these being the things that we love most.
 
We truly feel that God has big plans for the Cox Crew and Rustic Grains and we are so anxious to continue on this journey with each of you!
