Inspired By The Book Of Revelation

Several people in my life are in the process of overcoming. Overcoming an addiction, a broken heart, a long illness.

Bind My Heart

Inspired By A Hymn

Sometimes a line from a song just brands itself into your mind. This line from the famous hymn has always resonated with me and so many others, it seems. We long to be close to God, but we wander away so easily and thoughtlessly. No wonder Jesus was always talking about sheep. This print is […]

We come from  many traditions, many perspectives and yet all follow […]

Let God Surprise You

Lists, Goals, Projects: Oh, how I love these things. Notebooks, Planners, Calendars: I’m all in. You, too?  In ninth grade, I mapped out my entire high school curriculum just for fun. In college, I carefully plotted my classes so I could take extra hours each semester in subjects I loved. I knew what my senior […]
