WHY The Mighty OAKS?--> our New Shirt!
Written by Jenna Brown
I've written on it before, I KNOW I'll write on it again.
MIGHTY OAKS is the vision of The Nest.
almost 4 years ago, when God originally gave me the vision of The Nest (and how small it really was at the time).. he put the verses of Isaiah 61 on my heart.
Over the years, they have unfolded more and more.. as I've seen our place in them.
"binding up the brokenhearted"
"setting the captives free"
But mainly, when I think about our mission here, why in the WORLD we invest into the sphere of society that is our literal foundation & most important building block to ALL spheres (FAMILY)...
I think of MIGHTY OAK TREES.
"They will be called Oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the Lord
For the display of his splendor"
I think of an oak tree.
They start out as a seedling.
They take FOREVER to grow full into their might.
But they are strong under the storm.
They last forever.
That is our vision for families.
That they would be mighty, strong, unbreakable, unmovable, and the foundational change in our society.
SO WHAT IS MORE FITTING FOR OUR FIRST T-SHIRT FOR SALE AT THE NEST?
Our mighty oaks Tee!
It's fair trade.. MADE IN HAITI, employing those who need jobs to support their families.
It's a statement of boldness in truth.
AND OUR VISION.
** EACH AND EVERY SHIRT's PROFIT GOES DIRECTLY BACK TO OPERATING THE NEST! **
