We’ve got a number of reasons to choose Genesis as the inspiration for our first collection. Most importantly, it’s the first book in the Bible, so, seems like a good place to start. As creative types, both Lori and I fall into this spectrum, we thought God’s expression of creativity in His creation of, well, everything, would be an awesome place to start with our brand!
We have two products inspired by, well, the beginning:
“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1 NKJV
It is such a profound idea, being created in the image of God. We all understand there is no way to fully understand the makeup and character of our creator. So much is revealed to us in His Son, Jesus. More is revealed to us when we see the world we live in. And even more when we observe our galaxy and beyond!
Those moments when you gaze upward on a perfectly clear starry night way out in the desert, or you look out over a valley in the Eastern Sierras and only hear the wind, or a sunset over the Pacific Ocean, when you’re so awestruck and humbled, there are literally no words. We all know the moment of silence humans observe in these moments. To think, our creator, who created these things, endowed us with similar capacity.
We are like children imitating our Father. Our ability to conceive of, interpret, and produce beauty mirrors our Father’s same ability. Of course, what we produce is nowhere near what God created and maintains. No, our abilities are limited. But they are amazing nonetheless.
What’s more, is we are able to mimic our Father in so many different ways. We can be fathers ourselves, we can love, seek justice, care for the forgotten, show grace, forgive, bless, raise up, and battle evil. Just like our Father in heaven. However failingly, we do have the capability to participate in this life while preparing for the next.
"Then God said, 'Let there be light;' and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. God Called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day." Genesis 1:3-5 NKJV
Much like the first day of creation, this is our first launch, clothing line, and business as a married couple. We hope and pray that God echos the same sentiment He had in the first day and says that "It is good!" And we hope you say the same!! The Lord took special care to create the day and the night. Each individually different in so many ways, and yet, created by the same God with the same care and Love He puts into all of His creations.
“And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.” Genesis 2:2–3 NKJV
Our Genesis collection is temporary. When we launch the next book, Exodus, this collection will be taken down so be sure to purchase it now if you're interested. Our goal is to have a collection for every book in the bible (in order)! Subscribe to our newsletter to stay up to date on our new drops.
