No Matter The Ever-Changing Circumstances of Life, I Will Not Be Shaken

No Matter The Ever-Changing Circumstances of Life, I Will Not Be Shaken

I have been blessed to share beauty with truth-filled words of encouragement through my artwork for more than twenty years. But in all honesty, this monthly Encouragement Kit — Lemonade Reminders — was born out of a stress-filled big batch of lemons! 

The Kit became the beautiful result of a big stack of misprinted calendar art pages + a LOT of prayer + a calling to encourage women with scripture reminders + an open heart to try something new!

HE Keeps Me Singing... Encouragement & Hope for January

HE Keeps Me Singing... Encouragement & Hope for January

When I asked Pam about this design, she recalled painting the bird first, then searching for a hymn to go with it. The black and white bird resembles a black-capped chickadee, which is in fact a songbird. 

She then researched the backstory of this particular hymn and after reading about it, just soaked in the fact that suffering and sorrow is not new! People have been walking through it since the Garden. There have been countless people who God has worked through in the midst of great sorrow as they used words and songs to process their pain and write of His faithfulness in the midst of their storm... and there are countless more people who have come after them and are continuing to receive the blessing of their honesty and obedience. God continues to use their stories for our good and His glory! This gives tremendous HOPE!

Just like the bird keeps singing with hopes of his future days, and just like Bridgers wrote in his hymn, we can keep singing knowing Jesus is always with us! In all of life's ebb and flows!

Why I Love the True Story

Why I Love the True Story
The theme for this new Lemonade Creative month is very precious to me. I love spending time slowly reflecting on the Christmas story. I love anything that helps redirect my focus back to the Gift of Christ. That means, I love holiday movies, devotionals, scriptures… anything about the True Christmas Story. Oh, and I love nativity scenes too! 

We've Split! Just Our November Encouragement Kits Though!

We've Split! Just Our November Encouragement Kits Though!

We are including several products with our Fullness of Joy Path design since that is our theme design and verse, which will help you decorate for Fall.

But as we prepare to usher in Christmas, we wanted to include extra presents for our subscribers! One of the products is a flour sack towel with one our newest Christmas designs, the Wise Men. We are most excited about the reversible ornament with the Adonai Manger and Names of Jesus on it. 

Behind the Story of our New Words Worth Remembering Calendar

Behind the Story of our New Words Worth Remembering Calendar
Before even starting the artwork for this 2023 calendar, I started asking the Lord what would HE want for us. Since He already knows what 2023 holds for us, I wanted Him to lead me to the verses that He knows we will need to be reminded of in the new year. I kept being drawn to the verses in the book of Psalm and to the time-tested old hymns! I asked the ladies on our Facebook page what did they want to see in the new calendar... I heard critters! So, guess what you will find in this 2023 calendar? Of course, some florals, but also critters with soft faces, sweet eyes and beautiful reminders from Psalms and hymns to point our attention to our Good Father. May He be glorified by the artwork I've created. And may you be encouraged by knowing Him even better in 2023. 

What I’ve Learned From 40 Years of HIS Mercy and Loving Kindness ENDURING

What I’ve Learned From 40 Years of HIS Mercy and Loving Kindness ENDURING
This might offend some, but I cannot complete my husband and he cannot complete me. Unlike many popular songs, we are not equipped to complete each other… Only Christ can do that! We can complement each other. We can even balance out each other’s weaknesses and when we are allowing the Spirit of God to flow through us to each other and the others around us, HIS Mercy and Loving kindness are the spotlight! We make a powerful team when we function like that.

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

How 1 Peter 5:7 Helped One of Our Friends Through a Difficult Time

How 1 Peter 5:7 Helped One of Our Friends Through a Difficult Time

One of my favorite things about this ministry (that I also get to call my job!) is hearing customer testimonials, and testimonials in general about the products I make.

One of our long-time customers, Monica, shared part of her testimony with us. Since we knew our focus this week would be on 1 Peter 5:7, we asked if we could feature it in our blog.

Proverbs 3:5 & 6 - Having a Healthy Distrust of Self

Proverbs 3:5 & 6 - Having a Healthy Distrust of Self

Proverbs 3:5 & 6 gives us these reminders that almost seem like steps in a recipe. Reminding us:

  1. WHO to put our trust in 
  2. The need for a FULL commitment of spirit, soul and body
  3. To Trust God not only in salvation, but ALL areas of life
  4. A healthy distrust of self is acknowledging that we don’t know what’s best
  5. Turning over every area of our life to His control… laying down our Self-will to embrace His will

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 hope you can take a few moments to read our blog and read the 24 verses of Psalm 139. Read them slowly to soak on the words and let them sink into your heart. The words are describing a Good Father and His precious child. These verses are incredible Truths to combat negative thoughts and feelings.

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.”

Christian art, biblical art, inspirational art, batch of art

"Draw near to God and He will draw near to you." James 4:8

The beach is often the birthing place of many of my designs, especially when I need to create a big batch of artwork. The ocean helps me tune out the everyday responsibilities of my crazy life to refocus on my calling. I’ve noticed that when my mind gets calm, my “eyesight” is crisper and my hearing is clearer. Which is basically what the verses on these designs are about!
