Mercy Resident Designs T-Shirts with a Purpose!

Even before coming to Mercy, Christin had a desire and the skill to create. It wasn’t until recently, after hearing a teaching I did on tithing and the power of giving, that she asked the Lord, “Since I have no money to give back to you, what do I give?” She felt the Lord prompting her to use her talent for design to give back to Him and to bless others. Since then, Christin has been using her gift of creativity to design personalized t-shirts for residents and staff. She calls this outreach ministry “Threads of Hope.” Each t-shirt design is created based on something very personal to the person, whether it’s a prophetic word spoken over their life or a favorite scripture God has given them. Not only is each t-shirt a one-of-a-kind original design, but they are also hand sown by Christin herself!

I thought you would like to see some of the very cool t-shirts Christin has done.

Once she graduates from Mercy, Christin plans on continuing her t-shirt designs with the possibility of it becoming a business. If she sells them, she plans on donating a portion of the proceeds back to Mercy. We are so proud of Christin for using her gifts to minister to those around her and for the awesome transformation taking place in her heart and life. We wouldn’t be surprised if one day we could buy Christin’s t-shirts in some cool store! If you want to be one of the first to help Christin get her business off the ground, let us know and we will contact you to discuss the details.

That's so awesome! The designs are really cool, as well. I like how she incorporates stuff from the person to make the shirt.
