This shirt design features the beautiful prayer, "Tune my heart to sing Thy grace," taken from the beloved hymn "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing." It's a prayer for God's grace to transform our hearts and lives, and to make us more attuned to His presence and will. God's grace is a beautiful and mysterious thing, the unmerited favor and love that He pours out upon us despite our faults and failings. It's easy to get caught up in the noise and busyness of life, and to lose sight of God's grace amidst the chaos. That's why this prayer is such a powerful reminder to slow down, quiet our hearts, and listen for God's voice. When we are in tune with God, we become more sensitive to His presence and more able to discern His will in our lives. // Whether you're a music lover or just appreciate the vintage aesthetic of this shirt, let it be a reminder to seek out God's grace and to ask Him to tune your heart to sing His praises. The design features a retro-style record player and retro lettering. It's printed on a heather soft green tee with white ink, making it a versatile addition to any wardrobe.

Saint Dymphna's Support Group. // Mental health struggles can often leave us feeling alone and isolated, like we're the only ones going through it. But the truth is, we're not alone. There is an entire community of people out there who understand and support us, and with Saint Dymphna as our patron and with the help of her intercession, we can find strength and hope in the midst of our struggles. To me, this shirt is a symbol of hope. It's a way of showing solidarity with one another, of reminding each other that we're not alone in this fight. When you wear this shirt, I hope you feel that you're not just wearing a piece of clothing, you are joining a community of mental health warriors who are dedicated to supporting each other and praying for one another's healing. // The design is done in a retro and vintage style, with a nod to St. Dymphna's Irish heritage, featuring clovers that add a touch of whimsy and charm to the design. It is printed on a heather dust tee in green ink, which gives it a subtle and muted look that is perfect for everyday wear.

All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well. These are the words of Julian of Norwich, a Benedictine English mystic who wrote about the love of God and divine consolation. Julian lived in a time of great uncertainty, much like the one we are in now, and her words have brought comfort to countless souls throughout the centuries. Just hearing the words "all shall be well" has a way of bringing peace to our hearts. They remind us that even in the midst of uncertainty and chaos, God is in control and working all things for our good. // This delicate floral design, printed with charcoal ink on a heathered orchid color, is perfect for those who want to carry this message with them wherever they go. The flowers remind us of the beauty of God's creation, and the words remind us of the goodness of God's providence. You can wear this shirt as a reminder that no matter what happens, we are intentionally cared for by God and that truly all shall be well.

As Christians, we are called to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world, shining God's love and truth to all nations. Matthew 5:13-16 is a reminder of our mission to be agents of change in the world and to spread the Gospel message with love and humility. Each flower-filled country on the design represents the diverse cultures and peoples that make up our world, reminding us of our duty to share the love of Christ with everyone we encounter. Let us all strive to be the "salt" that preserves goodness in the world, and the "light" that guides others towards the path of righteousness. // The vintage vibe of the design adds a touch of nostalgia, reminding us of the faithful who have gone before us and who have also answered the call to be salt and light in their own time. This shirt is printed on a heather grass green tee with white ink and is printed on our well loved unisex cut.

To every woman reading this blog post, I am so humbled and honored that you want to wear my designs. From the very first moment of prayer when I start, to the spark of the idea and through the artistic process until I am holding them in my hands – I think of you and I pray for you. I hope that these shirts bless you, inspire you, and comfort you as we walk shoulder to shoulder on this path to our sanctity.

Pax et Bonum, Lauren Winter
