GratitudeTees is owned and operated by Lester Young, a Christian writer and graphic artist in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. While Lester’s first calling is writing about and teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ – he runs a Christian blog entitled ‘Just the Good News!’ (http://jtgn.wordpress.com) and has authored the book Kingdom Keys: A ‘How-to’ Guide for Flourishing in the Kingdom of God (available on Amazon) – he’s also been given the privilege of Christian t-shirt design as an outlet for his artistic expression.

Our Mission

Taking a good look around the world today can be disheartening. Problems are many while real solutions seem to be few. But the good news is that there are real answers. Unfortunately, the bad news is that – for the most part – the people with access to those answers usually aren’t speaking up. The Christian Church – the Body of Jesus Christ the Wisdom of God – has been too timid to stand up for what God’s Word says is right and wrong; fearful of being shunned, sued, picketed or just plain criticized by the rest of the world.

But exploits are done and things change only when God’s people stand up and speak His Words with courage and boldness (Daniel 11:32; Acts 4:29-33). And so the mission of GratitudeTees is a simple one: to encourage people to “put on the Lord Jesus Christ” (Romans 13:14); to boldly, unashamedly be seen honoring and thanking Him. The world can no longer afford for the Church to hide her Light. It’s time for us to be BOLD!

Our Vision

However, we envision expanding our influence well beyond the Church. We intend to send the ‘Gratitude’ logo around the world (can you say Nike ‘Swish’?), using it to remind people everywhere to simply be a little more thankful – not only to God the ultimate Source of all good, but also to our families, friends and even strangers we interact with daily.

Will you help us? Whenever and wherever you see the ‘Gratitude’ logo, “like” it, “pin” it or “share” it – in other words, spread it to your family, friends and neighbors, along with a warm and sincere smile. After all, wouldn’t just a little more gratitude in everyday life make this world a better place? We certainly think so.

Thanks very much for your support, and God bless you. We look forward to serving you for years to come!
