In 2012 when I heard the Lord tell me to paint I didn’t really know what it would look like or what it would be. This is my kitchen in Texas . All I knew is that I had a strong desire to share how God had restored our marriage and delivered us of all kinds of things . I knew that I wanted to stay home with my kids because that was so important to me. My husband was deploying and training and it was in my heart to be a consistent presence for our kids . I also had a desire to be in the word all day . I am very excited to study and meditate on Gods word and I am convinced that God told me to paint because I could accomplish all those things and also make an income. That’s why painting has never been about painting for me. I have never desired to do art shows or be in galleries etc I just wanted to work with my hands, do something in the field that I enjoy ( home decor and home making) and make some profit . I am also a giver and I love to meet needs so I knew that God needed a way to get that to me! I just enjoyed myself day after day listening to the word or meditating on God and what he had put on my heart that day and then little by little things just grew! I have consistently shared every single day here on social media since 2011! This is why I have so much freedom in art. Its because I have no outside information to get right or wrong and I just do it ! I have a confidence that God just blesses whatever I put my hand to. If you resonate with this , please come to my #mlacreativeweekend . If you desire to let go of your performance and just learn how to let the Holy Spirit be more effective in your art then I am your gal! Learn from me. Learn from the Holy Spirit. Make time for yourself to hear him and experience him in your every move. Don’t be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind!
