“‘Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?’ And He said to him,’You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.'” – Matthew 22:37-39
Which basically breaks down to: Love God, Love People.
And when I say it like that, the greatest commandment sounds pretty easy, but anyone that has lived at all knows that it’s not.
Loving God with all your heart, soul, and mind will hurt. It will be hard. It will be lonely.
But we’ve got to do it anyways.
Loving people is messy and heart breaking. People will betray you. They will lie about and to you.
But we love them anyways.
Our mission with this website has always been to offer real encouragement to Christians who feel like they are living in a fishbowl. Because that’s often how it feels to be a Christian these days. With all the social media, it feels like everything we say and do is out there to be observed and judged. And that’s kind of the way God intended it to be.
Christians were called to be the light of the world and a city on a hill. So our primary mission has been to help Christian families to use that light well. We want to enrich and equip believers as they try to live as Christ.
And now we are taking on a new venture to use our light well.
We’ve created a line of shirts that can help Christians in three ways.
1. All of our shirts have a positive message.
Finding cute clothing with a positive message can be hard. We want to make it easier.
2. Some of our shirts are great for witness wear.
While all of our shirts have really great positive messages, some of our shirts aren’t so straight forward. They have messages that might make people to ask what your shirt means, thus giving you the opportunity to share about Jesus.
3. We are donating 25% of our profits to the nonprofit agency, Show Hope.
Show Hope is a nonprofit organization founded by Stephen Curtis Chapman and his wife, Mary Beth. They support every phase of adoption. We have always had a heart for adoption, and while our journey hasn’t led to adoption for our family yet, we still want to help others on their adoption journey.
