Do Not Hold This Sin Against Them

In Acts 7, Stephen’s last words were,”Lord, do not hold this sin against them.” Saul became Paul shortly after that and the rest is HIStory! God answers prayer!

A Picture Paints a Thousand Words (Week 40)

**A Picture Paints a Thousand Words! When prayer, paint and pencils dance:

(Week 33) Belmont Blessings

Story behind the Painting: My husband and I are in a couples small group.  One of the mammas from this group asked me to paint a little something for her daughter’s soon-to-be new dorm and home, while I prayed over her college years.  It was an easy YES and a beautiful blessing to do so. Her daughter will be a […]

(Week 32) Bama Bound: Let’s Hear It For the Boys

Story Behind the Painting: This watercolor elephant is a graduation present for a friend’s son.  I asked her what I could possibly paint that a freshman boy might actually hang in his dorm and an elephant was the safest, school appropriate bet. Although the title gives it away, the elephant is intended to as well. He is “Bama Bound.” The […]

(Week 29) Angels and the Nations

“And I saw another angel flying through the sky, carrying the eternal Good News to proclaim to the people who belong to this world—to every nation, tribe, language, and people.” Rev. 14:6 NLT Story behind the painting: A friend asked me to paint a picture for her new office.  I met her at the designated time, scoped out the scene […]

(Week 24) Orlando Skyline: Encased in God’s Glory

I am still processing in print and pictures the pain that Orlando is experiencing. When Paris was attacked, I processed the shock and pain through painting for the first time.  The whole time I put color to canvas, I called out to Christ for the families and friends who lost loved ones that horrific day, November 13, 2015. Below is […]

(Week 14) “Wisdom: It’s not just what you say. It’s how and when you say it!”

Week 14’s painting: “Apple of Gold in Silver Setting” Proverbs 25:12 “The right word at the right time is like a custom-made piece of jewelry, And a wise friend’s timely […]

“Lent Challenge: Push Publish” February 12

On Ash Wednesday this week, our 8th grade small group met.  Right now we are going through some of the amazing chicks in God’s Word. Each girl picked their chick at the end of 2015.  As 2016 kicked off, we have had an 8th grader present their “God chick” each Wednesday. Hannah was the topic of our conversation this week […]

My Day 8 of 500 Words-#BetterTogether: Resting on Ready

Am I ready at all times? Ready for what? Can I live ready and at rest simultaneously? “Ready living” sounds a little like living discontent or anxious, and if “ready living” means that, then we are anticipating disappointment or disaster. I do not define “ready living” like that.  I define “ready living” as “dependent on God living.” “Ready living” is […]

A Sorority Prayer: Regardless of your letters, YOU are HIS!

Please protect each precious girl and let each of the greek houses radiate the light of Christ, thus drawing daughters to YOU […]
