Our Name

How did we come to calling our little business “The Lily Rose Room”?

“There are many rooms in my Father's house.” (John 14:2)  

As we discerned a name to call ourselves, we felt very drawn to the word ‘room’ as the Lord had opened up this special time and space for us to come together to pray, to be a sisterhood and to create. 

“I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys.” (Song of Songs 2:1) 

We are in awe of God’s creation, especially the beauty of flowers. As we prayed about how we could glorify God in this way, we were drawn to the rose and the lily. Traditionally the rose symbolizes our Heavenly Mother’s love for us, her purity, glory and sorrow; and the lily is synonymous with St Joseph’s steadfast love and care for his holy family. The phrase from King Solomon’s Song of Songs reminded us that we are God’s beloved, and He is ours.
