Christian Designer Label Asks 'Are You Living Like The Giraffe?'

Share Article

By asking this unique question, a new designer label helps Christians identify their faith by offering products that carry an appealing Christian message.

Blessings of Comfort wants to know if you are living like the Giraffe.

Odd as it may sound on the surface, the new company feels the question has plenty of merit in regards to Christians and Christian principles. And this simple question is the main theme behind the message the company spreads with its line of candles and apparel. By asking this simple question, Blessings of Comfort reminds Christians to stand tall in who they are and what they believe.

“The Giraffe demonstrates the traits we believe Christians should have,” explains Marcy Pate, owner of Graceful Oaks Design, LLC, who created the Blessings of Comfort line. “Think about a Giraffe for a second -- they stand tall; they feed on the things above them for nourishment; they live in groups and watch out for other animals; and although they are quite capable of defending themselves if need be, they exist peacefully.”

Pate uses the analogy and metaphor to point out what she sees as a real stumbling block for the Christian community. “There’s a definite paradox between Christian principles and our behavior. The US is one of the most Christian nations on earth, yet most of us go unrecognized in our daily lives unless we go to church on Sunday. I want to do my part to rectify that,” states Pate. By attaching her message to a line of products available at, Pate feels she has found the perfect vehicle to encourage Christians to express themselves openly.

Although Pate feels her message exemplifies a good way for anyone to live, she admits it is mostly the Christian community that will be interested in her products: “My product line and message will appeal to people who are already committed to Christian values and beliefs. They serve as a reminder of how we are supposed to live and allow someone to make a statement with their purchase.”
