People have been asking me to get merch for the longest time, and I’ve just never had the bandwidth to sit down and figure it out.

But inspired by the webinars we’re doing this week (Tea and Tent Pegs was AMAZING last night with Kristin Kobes Du Mez and Beth Allison Barr, with the brilliant Devi Avraham hosting; and The Tide Has Turned will be awesome on Thursday night), I decided it was time.

With Christmas coming in just a few weeks, I thought it was a great time to launch the merch! You can still get it by Christmas, and it makes wonderful stocking stuffers.

When you buy from our store, it helps support the blog.

Honestly, with no speaking this year because of COVID, pretty much all of my income comes from sales from the store, and from royalties from our books. And with that I pay my team. We do have a Patreon where you can help support our research and our social media efforts, but that money goes to pay for Joanna and Rebecca’s time, not me (because I don’t make enough to pay them!).

I really want to run this as a business and not a donation site, because I want you to give your donor money to things like stopping sex trafficking. So with that being said, here are some merchandise designs we have that I think you’ll love!

Pretty much everything is available as a T-shirt, a mug, or a tote bag–your choice.

Be a Biblical Woman collection

When you hear “biblical woman”, you likely get a very specific picture: meek, gentle, mild, prays a lot, cares for her husband and kids.

Those are all good things. Great things, even! But they are not the whole picture. And when we try to make that the whole picture of biblical womanhood, we artificially restrict what women are called to do.

Joanna and Rebecca and I sat down one day and tried to brainstorm all of the things that biblical women did in the Bible, and we came up with this:

Personally, my favourite is “Say no like Vashti.” I think Vashti is a very underrated biblical character.

Buy it as a mug, a T-shirt, or a bag! And you can change colors, too! The mugs start at just $10, so they’re a great gift.

What do you do with books you don’t agree with anymore?

I have some more designs I’ll be sharing with you in the next little while (some are in the store already, but they need their own post to explain the story behind them).

But one thing that many people have asked me for is stickers.

They have marriage/parenting books or other books that they don’t agree with, but they don’t want to throw them out because they may use them for research. Or there are counselors and pastors who don’t agree with them, but want to keep them so they can show people where the books are wrong. But if they leave them on their bookshelf, then people may think these are good resources!

I have a solution. Stickers! These warn others that you think the book is hazardous, but let you keep it for research.

(And if you don’t want to keep dangerous books, please don’t donate them! They may end up in the Third World where they can do even more damage. Just throw out or recycle after you tear off the covers).

They’re 4×4, which is nice and big so you can’t miss it. Just line up the line against the right side of the spine of the book and wrap the rest around. That way the poison sign is visible from the spine, but the rest is on the front of the book!

Biblical Womanhood Design

You can also get this one in a variety of colors too.

I hope you may enjoy some of those for Christmas gifts. 

And if you’d like the designs on something else–sweatshirts, etc., or travel mugs–let me know and we’ll try to add it to the store. 

Plus we’re always looking for new ideas! We have two ideas for limited edition merchandise, and we’ll reveal that around the one year anniversary of The Great Sex Rescue. But I’d love to know more of what you think, too!

Thanks so much for supporting us here. We really appreciate it!
