Meet Marissa // Be Still Clothing Co.

I'm all about companies that are based on truth and that spread a positive message to impact others! Be still Clothing Co. is no exception! Marissa has done a really great job of taking bible verses as her starting point to creating tees, hats, and even pillows that have a reminder on it that we all need! here's a little snip it from her website where she explains what they're all about:

"Be Still Clothing Company was started in December 2013 as a means to bring hope to the hopeless, strength to the weak, and comfort to those in pain. Exodus 14:14 says 'The Lord will fight for you; you need only to BE STILL,' and Psalm 46:10 says 'BE STILL and know that I am God.' These verses have been a source of strength to so many in their time of need.  Be Still Clothing Company wants to share this truth with others through our clothing in a fashionable and comfortable way."

I LOVE that! We can wear reminders for ourselves and for others to see! The reality is, we all go through rough times, but how wonderful that Marissa has created these biblical truths for us to wear proudly! Not only that but she has a great sense of style, so it's easy to want to sport something so meaningful and comforting when its beautifully designed! 


This "be you bravely" baseball tee is based on Romans 12:2 - "Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will."

This particular tee is meant to remind us to be nothing less than who God created us to be!

It's a men's/unisex style in size so this is an XS. You could always order larger for a baggier fit.


Marissa is clearly devoted to being a good friend, even to people she doesn't know! She's so inspiring to me and clearly has taken on this bible verse with conviction! I'm so glad that she created this company and am more than honored to support her in her venture! I'm so glad that I was able to get to know her a little better through a little interview we had! If you've wondered who the lovely lady is behind the company check it out!

Marissa and her stunning little family!

How did Be Still Clothing Co come about

I started this company after my family went through a few really tough patches. During this time I found tremendous strength in Exodus 14:14 and Psalm 46:10. After we made it through these tough times {and I know more are coming... God promises us that!} I knew I wanted to share this amazing truth with others who might be struggling.


Who or what has inspired you the most on this adventure?

Obviously the Lord and His message is the inspiration behind this business. It is all for His glory!! :)


If there's one thing you've learned from starting your own business that you'd want to pass on to others, what would it be?

Be organized! This is a constant struggle for me! I feel like if I was more organized I could save myself a lot of time and energy! I am working on it, but I definitely have a long way to go! 

 

What is a typical day in the life of Marissa?

Every day is so different! I try to wake up before my girls and have a big cup of tea and read my bible. Then we all get ready and go to the gym. I work out while the girls hang out in the kids club (which they LOVE).The rest of the day consists of running errands, preschool, work, naps for Kennedy, playdates, and anything else that might pop up! No two days are alike and they are ALWAYS exciting and adventurous! Hehe.

 

If you could have any super power what would it be? 

Like everyone else, I would love to fly. How awesome would that be?!?!?

 

What is something really quirky about you?

I CAN NOT put a dry q-tip in my ear. Seriously, it grosses me out to even think about it! I have to get it wet first. (W_E_I_R_D_O!) ;)


Great advice to stay organized! That's definitely my down fall. I have to work SO hard to stay organized, but being a mother of three has definitely made me improve to survive haha! And flying would 100% be my answer as well! I use to dream of it constantly as a child :) Thanks for sharing your inspiration behind the company and for starting this whole thing in the first place! I hope it continues to spread like wildfire!
