"Once we clearly acknowledge the soul, we can learn to hear it's cries. - Dallas Willard, Renovation Of The Heart."

It takes courage to pursue our dreams. It takes time and patience to unearth buried treasure. But I believe with all my heart that we must do both.


last weeks workshop

There were 56 enthusiastic women at last weeks visual journaling workshop.

It's such a joy to watch women who think they are not creative begin to create.

I had one women say, "when I got here, I thought, why am I here, I am going home. Then you began to talk and you were cute and funny, but still I was going to leave. This was nothing like I expected, I am so glad I stayed...thank you!"

I love stories like that!

It's those stories that make it all so worth it!! When our art and gifts/talents inspire and encourage someone else and their heart, then we know we are being and doing what God put us here on earth to do. Thank you Mary for sharing your real and beautiful heart with us.

Love and Hugs,
