First, thank you so much for visiting us on the People Of Faith website and for your interest in us as a brand.
My name is Grayson Reames and about a month ago I had the idea to start a Christian clothing brand with the purpose of making clothing that allowed people to profess their faith without even saying a word. After shuffling through some ideas for a name for a few days, I eventually settled on the idea of "People of Faith."
So now I had a name, but I wanted to give it some meaning before I slapped it on a t shirt and called it a day, so I searched for verses in the Bible that I felt best personified the idea that I was trying to bring to life. Again, after a few days I settled on a verse in Matthew chapter 17.
He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
The next step was the "why?" and for me, that was the simple part. The "why?" is that for some people, in some walks of life, or in some areas of the world, it's not easy to profess their faith. I have been blessed with what some call "a big mouth" and the confidence to speak about what I believe freely. I wanted to create the possibility of someone asking "what does your shirt mean?" and giving people the ability to grow the kingdom of Christ simply because of a shirt they were wearing. It was such an cool idea that I had to keep going.
The next and final step was the "how?" and the how are people. Thank you to Bill, a family friend from my church who offered his expertise in printing the shirts and making sure I was best prepared to chase this dream. Thank you to my friends who shared, followed, and liked the social media pages that I've used to head this whole thing off. And thank you to the small family of Isaac, Trevor, Sully, Kennedy, and Brooke who offered their time to make sure every thing looked the best it possibly could.
Now, I'm going to step off my "soap box" and let you know that we have some awesome bloggers joining our team as well that will be bringing you new stories, devotions, and unique content for you to read every week! They have some awesome stuff to share and I can't wait for you to hear what they have to share about their faith. Stay up to date on Facebook and Instagram as we'll be posting all the new blogs as they are published.
I am so excited to get this thing rolling on Sunday and can't wait to bring even more ideas, designs, and people for God to use to mold this idea into something special.
Thank you and God bless!
