Faithful Fish

Most stuff made "for christians by christians" is pretty wack. I'd almost go as far as to even say the majority of it is.

I'm not talking about music - we all know there are some incredible Christian artists out there who are bringing it. And the VeggieTales don't count either - cuz even if you're an atheist - ya gotta admit that those things are funny and well put together.

But most everything else is - well - wack. Ok - so Fireproof is doing great but most of the movies are wackish. The books are all self-help or so-so fiction. And the clothes? Wiggity-wiggity-wiggity-wiggity wack-daddy.

So last week I read about a 20-year old girl in metro-Atlanta who thought the same thing. But rather be like me - sitting back and complaining - she decided to do something about it.

Go check out what the cool cats at Faithful Fish are doing. They have made some simple, comfortable clothes that can be worn to say "I am a Christian" without any fire and brimstone messages being hawked on your front or back. It's a simple public display of what you believe and what you stand for.

And not only that - they have also started a campaign called "Dare To Wear Your Faith" that dares students, athletes, adults, kids - everybody - to rock their favorite "faithful" shirt the first Wednesday of every month.

Meron is pretty daring. She is gonna be taking part - how about you?

That little shirt and jacket are adorable. I'll have to check out that site. Meron is adorable. I'm so happy to see all of you together as a family. You guys look really happy!

That is one cute shirt. Haven't heard of Faithful Fish. Thanks for sharing!

I'm so sad that they skip in sizes from 18mo to Men's x-small. I guess Noah will have to wait to get his "Faithful Fish" T-shirt. Oh well...but tell Meron she is definitely stylin' in hers.

I agree with Beverly and with you on the wackidewackness of the usual Christian merchandise. However, Meron sold me on the hip factor of Faithful Fish so expect to see Max and Mimi sportin' some hip-fish.

We are with you on the wackness factor of a lot of Christian gear.

Veggie Tales? The coolest.

Fireproof? Gotta see it, maybe with my best buddy come November.

Meron? Gutsy style.

Your photoshopping in photo #8? Wack...the good kind.
