In the Beginning
But Jesus said, “Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.”
One of the most pressing things I wanted to do once I got Evertees® off the ground was to make all the designs that had been building up from past years onto shirts. Honesty, I feel that getting my concepts on shirts was one of the reasons why I began this ministry in the first place. I know God will give you the desires of your heart, especially if what you desire will grow his Kingdom.
So thats exactly what I did. I began to produce the shirts and market Evertees® to the world. I hadn’t put any thought on expanding the design selection to other ages than adults. It wasn’t until one Wednesday night after service that things changed for the ministry. My daughter had drawn a quick sketch in class and the teacher shared it with me. The first thing that came to my head was “That’s the next Evertee!” It was a hand-drawn, simple design that would look great on a tee for sure.
I came home to discuss the idea with my daughter and after some minor cleaning and tweaks, we had the newest design for our Gospel sharing toolbox. She was super excited to get her design up on the web and to be part of the ministry with her Daddy! Even though the design doesn’t appeal to everyone, the young hearts love it and that is all that matters. You know, if the world can make shirts to advertise movies, products and science fiction characters, we can make a shirt that will magnify the power and name of our God. And to see the young generation being apart of this movement is the greatest thing that could happen to this ministry.
We have since created more kid friendly selections and will continue to evolve it. We want others to be apart of this as well, so we are working on setting up a way to get you to send in your creation to Evertees® so please stay tuned as we prepare for that.
