Jessie sat down across from Natalie at the coffee shop, smiling as she scooted into the booth. She knew her friend’s life had been tough for several months, and she was grateful for a chance to catch up with her, and offer support. Former colleagues, the two women didn’t get together as often as they’d like, but always enjoyed each other’s company.
Employment and finances and school and our state of health suddenly feel precarious, and we can’t gather with the ones we love to hug it out and reassure each other, shoulder to shoulder and face to face, that it will all be okay.
Right now, we are supporting the Samaritan’s Purse Emergency Field Hospital in NYC. The facility is set up in Central Park to provide care for patients seriously ill with COVID-19.

Time is a currency that cannot be manufactured, and there are no refunds or exchanges once we’ve spent it. It gets away from us if we’re not careful, slipping through our fingers like the finest grains of sand. It happens a little at a time, until suddenly an hourglass that seemed three-fourths full a moment ago has dwindled down to nothing.
Let that truth sink in! When we choose Jesus, He gives us a clean slate, and everything else falls away in the light of His grace. Suddenly, all those things we’ve been chasing no longer seem so important.
Upon receiving a terminal cancer diagnosis, Shawn and his wife Stephanie had nowhere to turn but God. The power of words became part of their healing story. While facing difficult rounds of chemotherapy, Shawn chose to wear Kerusso T-shirts to each visit as a way to share “words of life” with the many other patients battling fear, and fighting for their very lives.
365 days a year, active duty military personnel are working to protect and serve their fellow citizens and the interests of our nation at home, and abroad. What if we did more to serve them in return — without waiting for Veteran’s Day to roll around again?
It can be difficult, even painful to embrace this truth when faced with genuine struggles like illness, job loss, relationship turmoil, or other uncertainties, but faith makes all the difference in our lives.

Faith changes people. Kerusso is on a mission to share Jesus on T-shirts, ball caps, bracelets, and more because the Good News is worth sharing — every day, in every way we can. Our blog shares biblical wisdom, sparks joy, and reminds you how much God loves you.
