Teaching women how they really do have creativity inside of them... planted by the Creator Himself! By teaching you how to work with your own handwriting with very simple steps to enhance it... Teaching you that the discipline of practice applied to lettering and journaling Bible Verses can actually help you memorize the verses.
The scripture lettering that I do in my journals helps me ZERO in on the verse, helping me write it on my heart. But many times it doesn’t end with the finished lettering, it goes a step further and becomes a prayer.
"May the God of Hope so fill you with Joy & Peace in believing that by the Power of the Holy Spirit you may abound and be bubbling over with Hope." Romans 15:13
Freedom is not free, it comes with a price! Just as each of us was bought at a price: the price of Our Savior laying down His life so that we may be FREE! Free from sin, Free from death, Free from the weight of our own destructive nature.
"So if the Son sets you free, you are free indeed." John 8:36
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.
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
You are NOT overlooked. You are not forgotten. You are not unheard. You are NOT a mistake! You are KNOWN by Him. You can praise Him because you ARE fearfully AND wonderfully made BY Him!

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.”

“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep." | John 10:11
In verse 11, Jesus describes Himself as the “Good Shepherd who laid down His life for His sheep”. I imagine the Shepherd laying His body over His precious sheep taking the deathly blows with His own body. The Good Shepherd by exchanging places with His precious sheep, accepted death to preserve His sheep’s life.

I have fond memories of the Gulf Coast. The ocean is actually one of my favorite places to visit. God has used the Gulf of Mexico to teach me many valuable spiritual lessons about life.
I remember being in Mississippi watching my brother in law take a very large net that was attached to a rope and throw it into the ocean. There were small weights attached all the way around the perimeter of the large circle shaped net. After the net hit the water it sank.
My brother in law waited a moment and then used the rope to slowly begin pulling the net back up out of the water. As he pulled, the once flat net transformed into a bag shape and to his delight, there were shrimp & fish flopping around in the net. He looked at me with a big grin and handed me the net...
