How it all began...

Every idea starts with a problem. Melanie Tipton’s problem was simple: she had trouble finding a Christian clothing brand that was authentic, stylish and aimed at young adults.

Hi Friend, this is Melanie and in 2017, I drove to my local shopping mall to try to find a Christian t-shirt that looked fashionable and had an authentic design that a young adult would love to wear.

After looking through several department stores and Christian bookstores, I became extremely frustrated because I couldn’t find a trendy and unique faith-based shirt that a young person or college student would yearn for.

When I returned home, the first thing I did was get on the internet to see if I could find a modern Christian t-shirt that looked different from all the other faith-based brands. To my amazement, I couldn’t find one.

All the Christian t-shirts at the mall and on the internet were old fashioned and they only had one color or style to choose from. Needless to say, I was disappointed.

That's when I decided I would solve this problem by creating a trendsetting and modern Christian clothing brand that young adults would desire to own and wear.

That's when I decided I would solve this problem by creating a trendsetting and modern Christian clothing brand that young adults would desire to own and wear.

That meant creating a brand that offered several colors in the same shirt, while offering many different youthful styles of shirts and sweatshirts that displayed stylish and encouraging messages about Jesus.

I first started the Jesus G.S. product line with a horse and buggy method, by sketching several Christian designs on multiple sheets of tattered scrap paper and tucking them away in an old shoebox.

After a few weeks of using my old school method, my worn-out shoebox became filled to the brim and was overflowing with Christian sketches.

I knew it was time to use the latest cutting edge technology to take the Jesus G.S. product line to the next level.

I was extremely excited about this new adventure of creating my stylish Christian brand for young adults with top of the line technology.

I grabbed all my Christian sketches out of my old shoebox and tried to bring them to life by using Adobe Illustrator.

My excitement quickly turned into disappointment because I had a big problem, I didn’t know how to use the high-tech editor.

That's when another round of frustration kicked in because I had a great idea but, I had no way of making it successful by using modern technology.

I knew in my heart I needed to rely on my Christian faith to get through this tough time. After being diligent in prayer, the one Bible verse they continued to play in my head during this time was: With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible - Matthew 19:26.

So, that's when I knew with God's help, I could do anything I set my mind to! Learning how to use the cutting edge technology to develop the Jesus G.S. product line was grueling and it wasn’t an easy task, especially since I’m very meticulous and pay attention to every little detail.

Working on a combination of faith, determination and a strong work ethic, I finally mastered the highly advanced technology to create the Jesus G.S. product line.

After months of working on a combination of faith, determination and a strong work ethic, I finally mastered the highly advanced technology to create the Jesus G.S. product line.

It took countless hours, weeks and months to create the stylish Christian brand, business plan and website but, with the Lord’s help and guidance, I learned how to successfully take the Jesus G.S. product line to a top level. The Jesus G.S. product line, website and business strategy was completed on 10/01/2018.

Melanie says, “I had no teacher on how to create my Christian designs and bring them to life by using cutting edge technology such as; Adobe Illustrator. I also had no teacher on how to create a successful Christian store website and build a business from the ground up.

My teacher was the Lord, who gave me directions through trial and error. I had to teach myself everything and it wasn’t an easy task, especially since I’m very meticulous and pay attention to every little detail surrounding the Jesus G.S. product line, business and store website. I created everything for the Jesus G.S. brand on my own with no help. Even though I have a B.A. degree from Carson Newman University, my degree for developing Jesus Gift Store came from the school of Hard Knocks”.

Working on a combination of pure determination and a strong work ethic, Melanie spent countless grueling hours, weeks and months to create, design and produce the Jesus G.S. brand with a modern approach.

Melanie says, “my goal was to produce an encouraging and inspiring Christian product line for young adults, that included uplifting messages about life, love, laughter, being happy and trusting God”.

After working diligently on designing, building and producing the Jesus G.S. brand and website from the ground up, everything finally become a reality.
