Hey friends! It’s been an incredible year so far and I want to share some of what God has been doing. And… I’ve got exciting stuff to share.
So firstly, I often get asked how many people are being reached by what I’m doing. Who is discovering this creative journey I’m on with God and who is choosing to come along for the ride. You know, the numbers.
I want to be transparent with you and share how things have been going Click to continue . . .

Hello Everyone! It is week 30 of the Bible Art Journaling Challenge! I was overwhelmed by the response to my week 28 Bible Art Journaling Challenge which covered simple colored pencil blending. I shouldn’t have been surprised, given the countless times I’ve been asked about them. But, I guess I had no idea how wide-spread the desire is, to learn about them. In that tutorial I shared about how to blend two colors of colored pencil together. Simple stuff.
Today, I am keeping it simple still. I want to share about Click to continue . . .

Hello Everyone! As many of you know, I have been releasing a new blog post every Tuesday since the beginning of 2015 for my Bible Art Journaling Challenge. Today is Tuesday. I woke up early, working on the finishing touches to this weeks challenge. And then I had the sudden need for a nap before finishing.
This is strange for me. I’ve not had a nap in a long while and certainly not at 9am! I have long given up resisting such odd things in my life, as they generally are God trying to do something. And He was.
I woke up an hour later no more refreshed for having slept, but a word was stirring in my heart. It was so strong I decided to abandon finishing the challenge straight away to share it on facebook on my page and in the groups I admin. I’ll share it with you in a moment.
After prayer and consideration, I’ve decided to postpone my challenge this week until Friday in order to Click to continue . . .

Hello Everyone! It is week 27 of the Bible Art Journaling Challenge! Can you believe it?! That means I’ve now issued a full six months worth of challenges for you to have fun digging in to. What a ton of memories we’ve made together and what fun, that we’ve still got so much more to come!
