Hello and welcome to Timid Lilly. We are Cher (Mom) and Grace (Daughter) Bear. We opened our company in 2016 selling handmade jewelry with the intention of donating to various charities geared toward helping children. Since then, we have grown exponentially and each December, have been blessed to donate hundreds of dollars to both local and national charities including The Humane Society of the United States, C.O.P.S, Cabot Panther Foundation, Walk for Wheezy, Junior Auxiliary of Cabot, Heroes and Angels, and Lonoke County Safe Haven.
About Cher: Before Grace and I opened Timid Lilly, I was a stay at home Mom - and before that I was a Civil and Defense Logisitics Engineer for an international shipping company out of Pittsburgh, PA. We have moved all over the northeast and south since marrying the love of my life in 2003. He is a C-130 pilot instructor at Little Rock Air Force Base now, and this is where we’ve called home since 2015. It’s certainly been an adventure and I wouldn’t have it any other way. When I am not working, i love to cook and watch my baby girl play softball. She is a catcher for her high school softball team. We have an 11 year old puppy named Lilly, who is my bestie during the day when it’s just the two of us grinding away working.
About Grace: I have started my senior year in high school and finished my junior year with a 4.34 GPA. I am a catcher for my high school softball team, a member of National Honor Society, a three year member of Fellowship of Christian Athletes, a 2020 delegate of Arkansas Girls State and a member of Crown Club of Cabot High School. My dream is to excel in undergraduate and then go onto to dental school!
In 2012, I was featured in American Girl Magazine and was named Young Philanthropist 2012 for another self propelled project I created called Tough Girl Tutus, where I made and sold 50 tutus, and donated 100% of the proceeds to Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh. I enjoy talking to my Dad about all sorts of things like sports, science, books, current news, and of course his exciting job as an Air Force C130 pilot instructor/evaluator. I also like spending time with my dog Lilly (and yes, she is timid and shy, but the sweetest dog you will ever meet), spending time with my friends, and doing all sorts of things with my Mom. When we aren’t working, I like just talking to her, being around her whether it’s spending a day shopping or driving in the car listening to music. And I love eating poke with her. I might be young, but I have a lot of plans to make a big difference in this world- all before I go to undergraduate and then dental school.
I am very blessed, and am grateful to have two parents that love me, and allow me to live my life to the fullest! I have an extended family that loves and supports my dreams, the best friends a girl could ask for, and supporters that believe in me, even when I started this crazy dream of mine at age 12. Thank you so much for your support!
