But it wasn't always this way... I spent many years searching for purpose in my life. I joined the military, I tried college, I worked different careers, I tried religion, I traveled to different countries, and I experienced the best things the world had to offer. I found nothing that could satisfy, and I was left tired and defeated. I had given up all hope and a severe depression fell over me.
So I prayed, "Jesus, I feel empty inside and I want to live the rest of my life under your direction." I felt the presence of God come over me, and all of the darkness that I carried for years was taken from me. I was at peace, it was the most amazing thing I've ever experienced, and it lasted for days. Jesus had forgiven my sins and filled me with His Holy Spirit; I was a brand new creation.
I finally found my purpose in life as a child of God. I wanted to tell everyone the the good news so I covered a shirt in bible verses. Then the miracles happened. A man I barely knew, named Kyle, gave me about $10,000 in screen printing equipment to make shirts; incuba8LABS offered me rent-free shop space in downtown Midland; a stranger, named Ramona, gave me this website domain for no charge; and another acquaintance, named Ralph, sold me his t-shirt business and all of his equipment valued over $10,000 for just one dollar.
That was three years ago. Today I run full-service print shop specializing in high-quality t-shirt printing. I print for my local community, for churches, schools, sports teams, businesses, and anyone who requires my services. My dream is to cover clothing in the Gospel and send it to the four corners of the earth, but before this dream can be reached I must first establish a successful business serving others.
