In the solitude of a dimly lit room, Stella sat alone, her teardrops glistening like diamonds in the soft candlelight. The weight of her past mistakes and regrets pressed heavily on her heart. She had stumbled and fallen countless times, leaving a trail of scars in her wake. But as she gazed at the flickering flame, a profound revelation washed over her. She realized that every stumble, every scar, and every tear had been intricately woven into the beautiful tapestry of her existence. In that moment, she saw herself not as a broken soul, but as a masterpiece in progress. Excited, she called me. We had been talking together about God and how much he loves her for several months. But in those quiet moments, she finally got it!  "I may be a mess, but I’m God's mess, and I am also His beloved creation, a work of art in the making!" she shouted in the phone. I sat there in awe that God had somehow communicated these truths to her in a way I tried and never could.


This fall, I’m excited to introduce the THANKFUL, BLESSED, AND HAPPY I’M GOD’S MESS collection as a celebration of this moment with Stella. This shirt will remind all who wear it that even in our imperfections, we are still deeply blessed. Life can be messy and unpredictable, but it is through these imperfections that we find our true selves and discover the beauty in the chaos. This design is a tribute to the idea that we are all a work in progress and that our flaws make us unique. May we all remember that no matter what challenges we face, there is always something to be thankful for.


The three key elements in the design—being thankful, feeling blessed, and embracing our "mess"—combine to send a powerful message.

Gratitude is a powerful force that can transform our lives. It reminds us to appreciate the small things, be present in the moment, and find joy in the everyday. The word THANKFUL on the shirt is a constant reminder to be thankful, especially during the fall season when we gather with loved ones and express gratitude for the abundance in our lives.

BLESSED conveys a sense of divine favor and the idea that we are all truly blessed, even when life presents its challenges. It encourages us to see the positive side of situations and acknowledge the good that surrounds us, no matter the circumstances.

Acknowledging that we are HAPPY I’M GOD’S MESS is to acknowledge that our imperfections, struggles, and past mistakes are all part of what makes us unique and beloved. We are all a beautiful mess, and embracing that mess can lead to personal growth and a deeper connection with our faith.

When you wear the THANKFUL, BLESSED, AND HAPPY I’M GOD’S MESS t-shirt you are not just making a fashion statement, you are committing to embodying these ideals in you daily life.


In a world filled with uncertainty, the THANKFUL, BLESSED, AND HAPPY I’M GOD’S MESS t-shirt design offers a comforting reminder that there is always something to be thankful for. It encapsulates the essence of the fall season and the idea that gratitude, blessings, and embracing our imperfections can lead to a more fulfilling life. So, this fall, wear your gratitude on your sleeve (okay, your chest) and share the message of being thankful, blessed, and glad for the beautiful mess that is life.
