My name is Caitlin. I am the founder and designer behind Thirteen Seven Design. I’m a professional designer, follower of Jesus, and mama to my sweet little toddler, Isobel.
The name of our shop is inspired by 1 Corinthians 13:7 — “[Love] always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”
- LOVE ALWAYS PROTECTS — To “cover.” In regard to the errors and faults of others, we choose not to notice or to revenge them; to endure indignities patiently.
- LOVE ALWAYS BELIEVES — The opposite of a distrustful spirit. It takes the best and kindest views of all men and all circumstances, as long as it is possible to do so. It trusts in the best of others.
- LOVE ALWAYS HOPES — To look for, to expect. It points to the fact that love hopes for things that are not seen — for the best of all men, for the accomplishment of the promises of God, that He will bring good out of evil, and that good will ultimately triumph.
- LOVE ALWAYS PERSEVERES — To bear patiently, to endure. Love perseveres through persecutions with a patient and loving spirit and unshaken confidence in the goodness of God. We hold our ground in the face of affliction and adversity.
In 2021, I became a mama — and it changed everything.
I had always wanted to be a mom. I had always identified as a Christian. I had always believed in the sanctity of life. However, seeing my daughter bouncing around on the ultrasound so early in my pregnancy solidified for me, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that human life begins in the womb. Clearly, she was so much more than a “clump of cells.” The precious little arms that I saw on that ultrasound are the same ones that sleepily wrap around my neck every morning.
A “nuanced” debate suddenly became crystal clear to me: human life begins in the womb, and taking an innocent human life is never permissible.
When the overturning of Roe v Wade took the national spotlight, I realized I could no longer stay silent. In spite of my wholehearted love of harmony and aversion to conflict, I took a chance and added a pro-life design to my Etsy shop — the floral womb graphic. It became an overnight sensation and continues to be one of the top-selling pro-life products on Etsy. I am so honored by the support, and touched to know that many women like myself are passionately fighting for the right to life.
