Carol Stream, IL (PRWEB) September 13, 2010
Having grown up in a strong, Christian household, Bob drifted away from his Christian principles as the lure of living for the moment beckoned him to strive for satisfaction outside of Christ. Life got away from him and he found himself 20 years down the road, looking at a new baby – wondering how she would find God if he and his wife didn’t show her the way as solid role models. While it may have taken a while to really change their way of living, Kelle and Bob found their way back to Jesus in July of 2008.
As life continued, and twin boys later, Bob found himself wanting to do something that had greater meaning. Instead of working 50-60 hours a week contributing to the worth of company shareholders, Bob wanted to do something that advanced God’s kingdom. SonGear.com was born in August, 2009. While his wife, Kelle, was supportive of this new venture as a hobby, it took the groundswell of Bob’s first and greatest marketing effort – Facebook – to really get her to rally around her husband’s newfound full-time dream job. Incredibly, this viral stage was a greater blessing than he had anticipated as witnessed by over 177,000 Facebook Fans – a real testament to the desire of Christians to share their faith.
The cornerstone of the SonGear.com site is their brand, “Life with Jesus is Better”. SonGear.com’s products feature this brand on t-shirts for men, women and children (including plus sizes), coffee cups, hats, car decals and even backpacks and lunch bags. Lifestyle specific options like “Golf with Jesus is Better”, “Camping with Jesus is Better”, and others have struck a chord with fellow Christians and have also been embraced by wholesales, retreats, camps and Christian groups alike.
Great blessings continue as SonGear (http://www.songear.com) moves into their second year, finding fertile ground in the growth of their message and their satisfied customers.
