My earliest memory is of my mother checking on me to see why I was napping so long. She came into my room to find me standing in my crib, happily putting the finishing touches on my mural, all drawn with a penny. I’ve been an artist ever since.
I am a visual and hands-on learner. I need things in front of me, (sometimes, right-smack-dab-in-front-of-me!) to remind me of something I learned, but seemed to have forgotten. I considered if this worked for me, perhaps others could benefit as well. So in 2010, at a writer’s conference I attended, an idea was suggested that I could combine my artwork with the biblical stories behind it; a creative Sabbath of sorts. This was when ArtFully Yours Ministry was conceived.
I began my writing career after attending a one day Writer’s Express seminar touting, “If you’ve ever read a magazine article and thought, ‘I could’ve written that!’ then THIS is the seminar for you!”
Little did I know that one day experience would whet my appetite to pursue a more serious calling on my life to write for God.
“I’m so grateful to Christ Jesus for making me adequate to do this work. He went out on a limb, you know, in trusting me with this ministry.” — 1 Timothy 1:12 (The Message)
"Seeking to encourage and nurture the discouraged through her art, speaking, and writing ministries."
