what is your angle? think about it. First I believe in God(Jesus Christ). Are you a non-profit or for profit. that name carries a lot of weight.

you are dealing with the public and they can be brutal.

I'm just a normal for-profit lawn care business. I'm a Christian, but that honestly had nothing to do with this idea. I have been thinking the idea over for 2 months now, as well as consulting with other people, and they love the name. It comes from the perfectly main-stream figure of speech like "what on God's green earth are you doing?" Since it's a main-stream saying and not a religious one, it shouldn't be a problem. It's catchy and professional imo and everyone else I have talked to about it says the same. It will be good for us.

cool,

Short story: when i first started I would put Christian Own and Operated on my flyers. man people would assume that work was free, asking major discounts, and everything.... etc. I took that off my flyers. I do share my Faith when i talk to customers at times. But I inform them business, i'm in business to grow.

Go strong with that name if you use it.

I need solid reasons guys. I'm not sure how all my customers like it and you guys are so critical, but I'm listening if you have anything constructive to offer. If it's just because it has God in it, get over it, this is America.
