My Name is Rick Clifton

My name is Rick. This is the testimony about how the crosses came to be. One day at the beginning of my Christian walk with Jesus while we were coming home from Church. The Holy Spirit showed me a vision of me when I was a child. I was 9 years old at a Church camp and someone had given me a cross necklace when I was baptized. In 2003 after getting baptized we arrived home I felt the need to go and make some of these cross necklaces for my family. It didn’t seem like I was in my shop for very long but several hours had passed by. The next thing I knew I had made over 300 of the cross necklaces. WOW! What am I going to do with these crosses? This is a question I should have thought about before asking. Jesus lead me to bless as many people as I could with the cross necklace. To this day I have been blessed by this inspiring gift from God. It started with the cross necklace, then 2 foot wooden crosses, and then 5 foot wooden crosses.The biggest cross I have made was 6′ wide by 9′ tall. It has over a 1,000 inlaid glass and ceramic tile. It was such a blessing to make a cross like this. There have been over 167 of these inspiring 2′ and 5′ wall crosses made. By the grace of God these crosses are now in 13 different countries around the world. These crosses are also throughout the United States and still growing. The vision that I see is to put one of these inspiring wooden crosses in every state capital in the Unites States and in every country around the world. We can change the world one heart at a time.

Thank you for your Prayers

This is the first cross that I had ever made.

Jesus’ hands are slightly oversized, showing strength. They remind us that we cannot rely on our own strength; we are totally dependent upon the Lord Jesus Christ.
