Synergy: Personal updates about what God is doing in my life.

The Shifting: God’s been shifting me, lately, and addressing long standing trouble spots for me in my life, specifically in the areas of identity, thinking/fears, disorder/chaos, and setting boundaries. I believe He’s doing this within his church body; addressing our trouble spots. In particular, He has been addressing my tendency to strive and my rejectionContinue reading “Synergy: Personal updates about what God is doing in my life.”

Faith through the Trial

This painting, called Faith through the Trial, is an alcohol ink painting with gold and white painter pens added for embellishments. I made it between December 25th and 26th, finishing on December 26th. I decided to call it “Faith through the Trial” because on the 26th, the day I spent the most time making it,Continue reading “Faith through the Trial”

Wondering whereContinue reading “Hanging in the Balance”

One of the gifts that I received when I was licensed as a minister on October 1st, was a $200Continue reading “Change is Here”

I titled it “Surprise Beginnings” because sometimes we don’t even notice those small beginnings, but they are surprises from God meant to encourageContinue reading “Surprise Beginnings”

Never Give Up

This painting titled “Never Give Up” only took a day or two to finish. This is an example of what I call my “emotional landscape art.” Its art I make just for fun, or to de-stress, or express feelings with no particular objective in mind. These “emotional landscape” art pieces are made intuitively and spontaneously.Continue reading “Never Give Up”
