Where my faith and creativity collide! A freedom freelancer, prayerful painter and clarion for Christ.


Ephesians 3:14 (The Message) “My response is to get down on my knees before the Father, this magnificent Father who parcels out all heaven and earth.”   On a mission trip to Kenya this past summer I experienced God in some of the most precious and unique ways.  I had the blessing of being the Scripture reader during Bible time […]


Ephesians 2:10-“For we are God’s masterpiece.  HE has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things HE planned for us long ago.” (NLT translation)   I kept searching the internet for a cool colorful background for this blog but never found exactly what I wanted.  It dawned on me that the walls of my house […]

Show and Tell

Psalm 145:4-“Generation to generation they will tell YOUR works and they will show YOUR heroism.” (Aramaic Bible in plain English translation)   We influence those around us whether we like it or not.  We are leaving a legacy and the beauty of knowing that is that we can be intentional about what we want that legacy to be.  Think for […]

Anything written that is just plain weird or stupid is all me:). HE is made perfect in my […]

YOU’VE GOT A FRIEND (new spin on James Taylor)

Jeremiah 33:3-“Call unto ME and I will show you great things!” For Christmas my daughter and I got new phone covers in our stocking.  Jeremiah 33:3 is the verse on mine and Proverbs 3:5-“Trust in the Lord with all your heart” is hers.  I can not think of 2 better reminders of WHO to call and WHO to trust or […]

Quiet Time

Singing or sighing?

Psalm 104:33-“I will sing to The Lord all my life; I will sing praise to my God while I live!” I love music.  Lyrics can be powerful and moving.  You couple profound lyrics with a memorable melody and they are almost always engraved on my heart forever.  Memorizing Scripture set to music is my way of  “Making Melodies in my […]
