- First things first; about me (Terry Novich) Hello! I live in New Zealand but my online website store is in California, USA (God bless the internet!) I create all the artwork for XTOLZ designs and I'm also the webmaster.
I want to encourage, equip and empower the Church, so I create Christian themed designs for T-shirt and novelty gifts which can be customized by you for yourself, your friends, church, ministry, special event, fundraiser...you get the idea. These products then become a great witnessing tool for Christ and the Holy Spirit to do their work through you.
On a more personal level; I love Jesus, my family (especially my husband and two gorgeous boys) my pets (two lovely dogs and one evil parrot) and, of course, His worldwide Church.
I have a blog XTOLZ Christian Blog and my email is Terry@xtolz.com. Read about about My Amazing Paradigm Change
- Why is XTOLZ called XTOLZ?
XTOLZ is my made-up word for extols. I strive to have all I do on XTOLZ extol God . To extol God means I praise Him, admire Him and worship Him (and Him alone.) Romans 15:11 & Psalm 117:1 (ESV) Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles, and let all the peoples extol him. I do my work by Romans 11:36 (NIV) For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever! Amen.
- Why "Christian" designs?
I believe that having Christian designs placed onto the many gift and shirt products I offer helps to spread the Word; they help get "that" conversations started, in fact, human curiosity being what it is, often someone will ask the owner of the product with a Christian design what the image is about, starting off a potential conversation about Jesus. I also believe that the work I do for XTOLZ is one of the "good works" that God has prepared for me to do.
- Where are you???
I am based in Northland, New Zealand. However, Zazzle, who supplies all my awesome t-shirts and novelty products, is based in Redwood, California, USA - all products are therefore shipped from the USA.

- Why do you have the XTOLZ website and stores?
XTOLZ is intended to encourage, equip and empowering the Church. My story; I had to give up my employment as my health began to disintegrate due to chronic illness. Unable to work outside the home my prayers were wonderfully answered when I started promoting my Christian designs online. In the beginning, I didn't realize that my ever faithful Lord had not only given me the work I could do but had also given me the ministry I had been hoping for! May God continue to bless you too in all His outrageously wonderful ways.
