JCLU offers Christian TShirts for Women.
They share a bit about themselves, their store, and their love for the Lord.
1. Please tell us a little about yourself.
There’s three of us: My mom Kim,my sister Chynna and me Zoey. My mom Kim is a youth Pastor and Worship Music leader in our church. Chynna is a junior high student. I just graduated high school and will be attending F.I.D.M. in L.A. this fall. My sister and I were raised in a Christ filled home. Since I can remember my mom and dad instilled their love for God in us. I am so thankful for being so blessed that way.
2. What inspires you to create your work?
Mark 16:15 He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.” We love Jesus and we love fashion. We saw alot of brands out there that put out negative messages. We set out to do the opposite. We wanted to spread God’s word in a way that girls could appreciate. We consider ourselves fashion evangelists, lol.
3. What is your favorite thing to make/sell?
WOW,that’s tough. Every time we design a new shirt it’s our favorite. We recently released “smile.JCLU” It’s a baggy raglan pullover sweater that we’re very proud of. It’s the first time we made something other than a t-shirt. It’s wildly popular. We order limited amounts as kind of a beta test and they sold out in a few hours.
4. What is the best part about being a Christian seller?
The fact that we’re abiding by scripture. What we do is a labor of love. We are spreading the gospel according to the scripture above. The most rewarding for us is getting feedback from our customers. People are telling us that our shirts have created new opportunities for them to witness, Praise God! That makes us smile 🙂
5. Why do you do what you do?
It may appear that we’re making lots of money doing this, but the truth is we’re not. There have been times we all wanted to quit. We work sometimes 16 hours a day. A couple of months ago we had a close out sale because we really thought we were done. We received an overwhelming amount of emails telling us how our shirts have blessed people in many ways. This really put things in perspective for us. We’re doing this for Him! If we do His work then He will provide! That’s why we do what we do.
6. What are your hobbies?
Our hobby is our work. We’re fashion junkies I hate to say. If we’re not in church or designing we’re reading all the fashion mags and watching the fashion shows on t.v. This is how God made us and it appears that He knew what He was doing, lol because we started JCLU. God does work in mysterious ways.
7. What is your favorite book/movie/music?
Ok we all picked one. Kim chose the movie: Fireproof, Chynna chose Group 1 Crew for music, I I chose the book Crazy Love by Francis Chan.
8. What is one of your most well-loved Bible verses?
1 Corinthians 13: 4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It is not rude, it is not self-seeking,
it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres. 8Love never fails.
