Hope Eternal Clothing

In 2005 I had the privilege to travel to Tanzania. It was an amazing time! We got to travel all over the country. We got to meet amazing people, that even though they had very little they were some of the most hospitable, caring, generous people I've ever met.

While I was there we worked at an orphanage that told us how so many kids get sick and end up dying because they can't afford the $2 malaria pills. This broke my heart, something for cost of a cup of coffee can save a kids life.

I came home and came up with the idea to start Hope Eternal Clothing, you can see our website here. You can also like Hope Eternal on facebook right here. The idea was that when someone purchases a shirt, profit from the shirt would go towards providing medicine, food, clothing and shelter for those in need around the world.

I'm excited for our newest shirt. It's called Person Not Product and one of our good friends that is working in the Red Light district of Bangkok did the artwork for us.

We look forward to some new designs coming out this year. Here is a video from Love 146 that really helped inspire this shirt!

We Were Made To Create!

I love taking pictures. I find I don't take my real camera out with me as much anymore. I usually just bust my phone out and take some pictures with it. My camera is bulky. I find joy in taking pictures of the things I see. I love that my kids are picking up that some heart for creativity as well. My oldest son loves taking pictures.

I was made to create things, and I need to remember that. I need to remember that I can take time to be with Jesus while I take pictures.

I saw something the other day, it said "Anything that excites me for any reason, I will photograph; not searching for unusual subject matter, but making the commonplace unusual."

Here are couple of photos I've taken that I thought I would share with you. What's something that you can do this week, something that God created you to do that you have been saying you don't have the time for.

Come Away

I am always going, I find that I am always running from one thing to the next. That life gets ridiculously busy. I need to remember to stop and breath sometimes and enjoy what's around me.

I took some time to take a walk with my daughter this week. This is one of my favorite spots to sit and watch the waves crash onto shore.

Take some time take a breath today and let God speak to you in the still quietness, even if it's only for a minute.

Here is a little video for you as well.
