If you know me even a little bit, you’ll know that I have struggled throughout different stages of life at making meaningful friendships. According to the Myers-Briggs test that I took, I am 95% introverted, which explains a lot of it. Once I graduated from college and got married, finding community was one thing I was scared about – how would I do that without school or extracurricular activities to speed the process along?
Fast forward to now… and I’ve 100% found my people. We started out as a life group and it changed from “just” Bible study to what the name implies… doing life together. We talk about Jesus, play board games, eat too much ice cream and Kwik Trip, and do other random stuff together like strawberry picking and furniture shopping! They were some of the first people to find out that Tyler and I are expecting and definitely some of the first people we go to when we need advice.
A few months ago, part of that group and two of our best friends Ryan and Fayth told all of us that God had placed it on their hearts to start a t-shirt business called THE ISAIAH PROJECT that gives back to causes they are passionate about. I’ll let Ryan and Fayth introduce themselves:
“Hey! We’re Ryan and Fayth, a husband and wife team on a mission to make the world a better place. I mean, that sounds a little bold and cliché but, it’s true. We started The Isaiah Project because we wanted to help out the people who were really getting their hands dirty and helping those in need. We wanted to pour into those who are on the mountains and being the hands and feet of Jesus (Isaiah 52:7, anyone?). We didn’t want to sit back and do nothing when we know there’s so much to be done, and we wanted others to hop on board and join us in giving back! So, when you purchase an item from us, 50% of the profits will be going to a ministry that we love!”
Their first set of t-shirts – THE ISAIAH COLLECTION – is now ready for pre-orders!
A huge portion of the proceeds from this collection will be going to In His Steps International, a ministry that saves people from sex trafficking in Cambodia. That’s all something we can get behind, am I right? Another cool thing about this project is that I got to model one of their t-shirts for their first photoshoot! It was so much fun to hang out with everyone, sweat our booties off in the sun, and then reward ourselves with tacos afterward. Win-win.
Without any more rambling, here’s a peek at the collection followed by all the links where you can find The Isaiah Project on social media. I know you’ll love them as much as I do.
