Purposely Chosen, Inc. has its TRADEMARK!

On January 10, 2012, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) sent official notification that PURPOSELY CHOSEN has been registered! This has been a long and tedious process but because this name was God-given to the founder, we had no worries about the obstacles that we faced while trying to secure registration. What God has for Purposely Chosen, Inc., it is for Purposely Chosen! So be on the look out for shirts, hats, and bags reping Purposely Chosen, the BRAND!

Purposely Chosens’ Got Wheels!!!

On January 19, 2012, Purposely Chosen was blessed with a beautiful Ford E350 15 passenger van. We want to thank Dr. Rose Swearingen and the Life’s Journey Center, Palm Springs, CA for this wonderful blessing!
