Living an ART filled life...“Creativity is a God-given ability to take something ordinary and make it into something special. It is an openness to doing old things new ways…The creative spirit is part of our heritage as children of the One who created all things. And nurturing our creativity is part of our responsibility as stewards of God’s good gifts.” - Emilie Barnes, The Spirit of Loveline

Speaking Truth in Love ❤️

Speaking Truth in Love ❤️

Hello! I want to share the process of speaking truth in love in a personal way with you today. This is something I talk about often, especially with women in my close circles. As a wife and mother, I have learned this lesson MANY times over […]

Focus

Focus

Happy Tuesday!

A special welcome if you are new here! It’s an honor and a privilege to connect with so many Sisters in Christ ❤

Today, I’m beginning with a bit of a confession…

Lately, I have been “focusing” on improving my watercolor techniques. I am a self taught doodler, with no formal art training. (Other than freshman high school art! Thank you Ms. Marsh!) I have so much to learn!

Yesterday, after spending several hours working with watercolor, (twice the time I spent with God) a twitter post from Lysa TerKeurst came across my iPad screen.

A good heart check for today: Whatever is holding our attention the most is what we’re truly worshipping.” -Lysa Terkeurst

OUCH! The Holy Spirit grabbed my attention in that moment, and caused me to evaluate my time management, which was quite telling of my focus & my heart.

So, I quit what I was working on, and got back to the business of prayer and study.

Later last night, I went to find that quote. It was still “on my heart” and I wanted to create a visual to remember it!

I have a twitter account, but I don’t really use it. I am so technically challenged, that I don’t even know why her tweet came across my screen?!!! 😂

ANYWAY, I was searching google for her twitter feed from yesterday, and the quote below came up from a few years ago…

Wherever we focus our attention the most, will become the driving force in our lives.” -Lysa TerKeurst

Well, that was right on point too! God, are you trying to tell me something?!

I think so.

I LOVE creating. I could sit and draw, paint, doodle…all day long. That is a misuse of the precious time the Lord has given me to share of His glory and fulfill the purpose He has made me for….I need to listen to the Holy Spirit regarding balance in my life.

Anyway….

I finished this visual today and thought I would share it with all of you!

Hope becomes a visual reminder for you as well…

Hello! I’m writing from my bed today…after caring for several sickies, I have now fallen to the same end, & on my lap sits my iPad Pro. How amazing it is to be afforded the luxury of laying here with this miraculous piece of technology […]

Hello!

Those of you sweet friends who are following my blog, know that I have been posting about the “classroom happenings” as I teach a Bible Journaling class using the READ SCRIPTURE APP.  (As we read through the Bible in 1 year)

This week, I touched upon the idea of using shapes and lines to create lettering structure, and inluded a handout with some very basic (certainly not complete) guidelines for overall page design.

 

Below are the PDFs. Hope these are a help to you as well!!!

Hello and a BIG welcome to those of you who are new to my blog! It is such a gift to be able to connect with Sisters in Christ from all over the world! I never dreamed it possible!

I have been a busy girl finishing up a morning and evening Bible Study SEAMLESS (by Angie Smith), and hosting Jennie Allen for our annual Women’s Conference! I’m a bit behind in my journaling through the Bible in a year!

I have continued to read (we are in Judges), using the READ SCRIPTURE APP, but need to put my “thoughts” down in pictures:)

Currently, I am preparing for an upcoming 6 week Bible Journaling study using the READ SCRIPTURE APP. I will be sure to share with you, some of the material I create for it!

Below you will find a free printable for a bookmark a Sister out there requested. Her church is gearing up for their women’s conference! I am ALWAYS happy to support the work you are all doing as you love and serve in your communities! ❤

This is from one of my FAVORITE Chapters…Ephesians 1.

Happy Monday!!
