How did I land on creating sweatshirts?” my friend Hilary asked me when I gave her the news. “I have no idea!” I responded.

Did I plan to open a shop with the start of the blog? Definitely not. But I am learning to follow God’s nudges and trust that He knows what He is doing.

THE ORIGIN STORY OF “HIS”

While reading the New Testament last year, a verse from Luke sauntered into my heart and took up residence there: “Whoever is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his glory of the Father and of the holy angels” (9.26).

But time and trials would bind me back to Him, and now the idea of being ashamed of He who sustains me is positively backwards.

I want others to know the joy and freedom that comes from identifying as His, and not as one of the world.
