It's Time for Art Class! Grab Your Supplies!

We are having an art class and we want you to come to class!

Did you know your artwork can tell a story? I will show you how to take simple things like old book pages, scrapbook paper, old sewing patterns, maps, bits of string & yarn, buttons & beads and other objects and use them in your artwork to help tell your story. 

We would love for you to join us for art class, for our Mixed Media Creative Hearts Workshop. Please don't let supplies be an obstacle! We want to help you as best as we can, but really we just want you to know that you can create beautiful art just like this as well! And be proud of it! I can't wait to have you join us!

Do You Know Why Lemonade Creative Hearts Was Started?

Do You Know Why Lemonade Creative Hearts Was Started?

A mishap in 2020 drove me to my knees in prayer, the desperation opened my mind, and God planted the seed in my heart. And Part Two of the Lemonade Story is about me opening my mind to be willing to do something that so many women have been asking me for throughout the years. Which led me to begin Lemonade Creative Hearts.

Lemonade Creative Hearts (LCH for short) is a monthly practice of renewing your mind, and focusing on Truth, even when life gives you lemons.

He Will Perfect That Which Concerns Me

He Will Perfect That Which Concerns Me

David had repeated encounters of having his enemies on all sides. He had been surrounded by danger. He knew tragedy. And David knew the depths of great sorrow over his own sin and the grief over the weight of the consequences birthed from those sins. And yet, he could write this psalm with great confidence!  

“The Lord will perfect that which concerns me.
Your mercy and loving-kindness, O Lord, endure forever -
forsake not the works of Your own hands”  Psalm 138:8

When Life Feels Like Sinking Sand...

When Life Feels Like Sinking Sand...

REMEMBER 

Lamentations 3:21 is a wonderful example when everything seems like it is falling apart. “Yet, this I recall to mind….therefore I have hope!”

So it is critical to remember Truth. Remember that God's love for you is immeasurable, He sees you and He cares. Remember Christ & His finished work on the Cross IS our source of HOPE.   I encourage you to read Lamentations 3:19-26... "The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him..."

Praying for God's Will While Living In a Selfish World

Praying for God's Will While Living In a Selfish World
I came into this world wanting my way. I wanted it when I wanted it and how I wanted it. [ I realized I needed to start ] making it part of my daily prayers that God will direct my "want to" to line up with what He wants for my life.

Lord, TRAIN my heart to WANT the things you want for me.
Lord, TRAIN my heart to have a distaste for anything that doesn’t line up with YOUR will.
Lord, TRAIN my heart to TRUST YOUR Gracious Spirit wherever You lead me.

Verses To Help Guide You When Praying For Direction

Verses To Help Guide You When Praying For Direction

Psalm 139: 23 & 24 can be used as a prayer as well, asking the Holy Spirit to sort through our motives and intentions. We aren’t always the best judge of our own heart, but He is! “Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my concerns. See if there is any offensive way in me; lead me in the everlasting way.”

All of these verses bring reassurance to my heart and mind, especially when I am praying for direction. I’ve often asked Him to make my heart, my mind and my desires line up with His. Basically, to make me want what He wants for me! And to give me a distaste for anything that is not of Him.

How to Use Discomfort for GOOD!

So, friend, receive the comfort from these powerful verses [of Psalm 139], BUT I also want to encourage you that even the discomfort can be useful! Welcome the blessing of the vehicle that leads you to the foot of the Cross!  

“Search me (thoroughly), O God, and know my heart!  Try me and know my thoughts!  And see if there is any wicked or hurtful way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” Psalm 139:23 & 24 Amplified

5 Tips for Praying Psalm 139 Over Your Life

5 Tips for Praying Psalm 139 Over Your Life
Each month here at From the Heart Art we have a monthly focus; Psalm 139 is our focus for the Month of May. It's been so exciting to plan out our month and look for every opportunity possible to utilize the powerful verses from this Psalm. We have used it in our Lemonade Reminder Encouragement Kit, we will use it in our weekly focal verses sent to our newsletter subscribers and all of May’s Creative Hearts lessons are centered around the verses in Psalm 139. Even with all that, it still feels like there is so much left that we didn’t get to cover! It’s definitely a chapter to settle down in and park there for a while. Just let your heart soak in the rich words!

What IS Peace Anyway? The Story Behind the Design in April's Christian Women Subscription Box

What IS Peace Anyway? 

I think this is a really important question to be able to answer. Read this week's blog as I share a few thoughts that I have, as well as a few verses that I hope encourage you. And you will even find some helpful tips for next time you are lacking peace.

I was reading the Tony Evans Bible Commentary to see what Dr. Evans had to say about these verses.  He describes it this way: “Peace is harmony on the inside always in every way–that is, regardless of your circumstances.”

Tracing Your Spiritual Family Roots

Tracing Your Spiritual Family Roots

I enjoy looking at old family photos, don’t you? Flipping through the pages of an old family photo album and seeing photos of your parents as children...

But looking beyond the eye color, hair texture, strengths, weaknesses and quirks, have you ever considered your Other Family? If you are a Christian, you actually have two families! In addition to your biological family lineage, you also receive a spiritual genealogy. At spiritual rebirth, you were placed INTO the eternal spiritual family of Jesus Christ. Hebrews 2:10 and the verses following, tell us that HE not only makes us Holy, but we are of the SAME Family.
