“The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole,but true beauty in a Woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she knows.”

People that choose to share God’s message to others, AKA Preachers, take all forms, shapes and sizes. And sometimes, they are people who once used their shape to make their living. This is exactly what you see when you see the picture of the beautiful woman above.

Yes Kylie Bisutti is exquisitely beautiful. But more than the beauty that is reflected in the mirror, Kylie shines with an inner beauty that is far greater than what we see. And this is why this former Victoria’s Secret model gave up a lucrative career, and today, shares God’s word with the world. But no, she does not do it in a traditional brick and mortar building. Instead, she chose to combine her fashion smarts with her faith filled heart, and created a line of clothing that features passages of scripture on each unique piece.

Kylie Bisutti used to be a Victoria’s Secret model. She was blessed with beauty and she concentrated on the superficial aspects of the world we live in. But then, something changed. She grew closer to God and began studying the Bible. She then quit her high-profile and lucrative modeling career.

She wrote an autobiography (“I’m No Angel”) and decided to do her best to change the modeling industry: she is creating a God-inspired clothing line. She wants to live “a Proverbs 31 wife and mother.”

She is the part-owner of a Christian clothing brand named God Inspired Clothing. In a quote on the label’s website, she explains, “God inspired fashion is all about spreading God’s word everywhere and making it easier for Christians to share their faith and God’s love. And that’s really what the world needs right now.”

 

 

All of the products made by God Inspired Clothing include Scripture on them; for example, the t-shirt above has Psalm 28:7 on the back. 

She encourages Christians to be open with their faith and to literally wear it on their sleeve.

Phrases like “not ashamed of the Gospel” or “love thy enemies” adorn many of the items that GIC creates. 

God Inspired Clothing’s founders place a particular focus on their children’s clothing line:

The founders of God inspired fashion see a strong correlation between the removal of God’s word and the breakdown of the family unit in our society and ultimately its moral foundation. They believe that sharing God’s word can reverse this trend. “Using every part of their lives Christians can unite to change the world,” said CEO Angie Frost.

By using actual Bible verses on clothes students will be exposed to the most important book ever written. “For some children reading the verses on our clothes will be their first introduction to the Bible. We are hoping to spark their interest in the power of God’s word,” says Stevi Baker, Director of Children’s Clothing. The people behind God inspired fashion are hoping to increase love and curb the violence in our Nation’s classrooms. “Bullying is also a big issue for many of the students in our country and if anything can change a bully’s heart, it’s God’s word,” explains Baker.

 

 

It’s so inspiring to see celebrities and large corporations embrace the word of God – and spread it! Kylie gave up fame and fortune to be closer to God… and we think she is setting an amazing example for young girls and boys the world over.

And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.
