Today in the studio: Painted mid-tones on the tree and began blocking in the middle ground. Don’t want to get hung up in detail at this point.

And just like that, my dad was baptized! Please continue to pray for him to let Jesus transform his life. Glory to God!

Last week I had an evening where the word “believe” kept coming to mind over and over. I woke up the next morning and I couldn’t get the word out of my mind so I decided to letter it on an ornament. As I sat there with it sketched out and about to paint it I received a text from my pastor. She was texting me to order a few things for the church and the women’s tea. One of the pieces ordered was a sign that says “believe”. I sat there with the ornament in front of me in shock as I went on to read her text. She explained the whole tea was centered around the word “believe” and this verse: “For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭9:6‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
I tell my kids in my prophetic art class every week, sometimes God is speaking to us and we don’t realize it. It’s so quiet and so subtle BUT when the door is standing in front of us open and the choice is at hand, “do I walk through this door?”, in that moment we KNOW it’s a divine set up. The more these things happen to you the more your ear will be tuned to these whisperings! .
Emmanuel is only mentioned 3 times in the Bible. The first two times are in Isaiah 7 and 8 and then again in Matthew 1:23. But over and over and over the Bible declares God is with us! I paired this with the quick magnolia sketch to represent the purity of our savior. Our God and king that wrapped himself in flesh just for it to be ripped and torn to heal and free me. 😭 what Love is this....

Today it's in the 30s in Nashville and being from Chicago I feel like I need to stand on a chair, start a slow clap, and just state ever so nonchalantly "good job Nashville, you now have experienced what is considered a nice day of Chicago winter weather". - - - - - - -
I really can't seem to let go that people don't have to enter in these brutal, depressing winters everywhere else in the world. It is just not fair. Chicago, you are a trooper.

Can you believe Christmas is almost here? The weather is starting to feel like winter too. We just had our first fire in the fireplace and started our annual tradition: watching my extensive collection of “A Christmas Carol”. Such a wonderful story of redemption. Last night it was Patrick Stewart; tonight it’s the Albert Finney version. Love ‘em all!

My dad is getting baptized tomorrow, and as I wrote these words to him {that fold into a bookmark—scroll to see}, I realized that maybe some of my friends need to be reminded of these truths too. I know I do, daily. So here’s my letter to my father, both sides of the bookmark and the Bible I chose for him—he requested NIV and large print. Please pray that my father is able to overcome his demons with the help only the Holy Spirit can provide. Glory to God!

Who’s exhausted and totally worn out? Who needs a burden lifted? Who needs to be freed from anxiety’s grip? Who needs to be refreshed and refueled? Let this be your prayer tonight. We need You, Lord. #goodnewsfeed

I feel like right now the season God has me in is a season of waiting, trusting, and lots of unknowns. And to be totally honest, that scares me a ton! I don’t like unknowns. Unknowns freak me out, make me uncomfortable, and make me wanna control everything. But maybe that’s the point. Maybe the Lord has me in a season of waiting, trusting, and unknowns because He wants me to let go. Maybe He wants me to be uncomfortable so that I can put all my trust in Him. Because when you are truly uncomfortable, raw, and vulnerable, where else can you turn? It’s hard to turn to anything else but the Lord!
Maybe you feel like you’re in the same season, and maybe the Lord just wants you to let go and trust Him.
Friends, we gotta stop trying to control everything. In reality, we cannot control it all. We just can’t. We’ve gotta loosen the grip, and hand it over to the Lord. Let him be your guide. Even in the dark I want us to be stepping out in faith and trusting that the Lord will get us through this season. We may not know where we are going, but the Lord does.
I love reminding myself of Proverbs 3:5...”Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.” 💕

Love makes humans do some pretty amazing things, but God has us all beat. He humbled Himself to become one of us, and then He died on purpose to take away the sin of the world. This is the greatest and most sacrificial gift we’ve been given. 🕊💚

Hello everyone!!
I pray that you are having a blessed day so far, and enjoying your Christian walk.
God bless!!👍🏽

This girl right here...❤️ •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
We led @revkidsga worship together this morning and I just have to say...watching her love for Jesus shine through on stage as she raised her arms to praise Him...her smile radiating joy and the true meaning of Christmas. Giving, loving and serving.
Bonus: it was pajama day at church so we even got to wear our matching pjs 😍❤️🙌🏻

Meet the artist: Hi newbies! I haven’t done an intro in a while. My name is Sey and I’m a professional illustrator and artist. Can’t wait to see Star Wars! Did you know it is my ultimate fandom? I used to write fan fiction when I was in high school. You probably can still find some up online on @theforcenet in the forums under the name Amithyst Blade. Those were the good ole days. It’s how fans kept the stories alive until they released the EU books. I’ve read most of them. I know they aren’t canon, but that doesn’t mean they weren’t great stories! Same with fan fiction. Hehe now off to painting commissions for Christmas!!!

How gorgeous❣️Christmas bells 🔔🔔 and a beautiful gift for my gorgeous mumma ❤️ a #queen deserves the best xxxx @mulberryengland take a bow 🙇

Today has been beyond amazing, even though I struggled so hard to wake up in the morning.
Partnered with M to lead the youth session after church. And it went so well, way better than expected. Allowing the Holy Spirit to use both of us to speak into the lives and hearts of the youths meant so much. I give all the glory and praises to God for we can do nothing without Him.
Went for Christmas caroling along the red light district. (Reminds me of the good times in Wales!) God is so good. I really enjoyed myself. Through the experience, I saw just how relentlessly God pursues everybody. And literally, everybody, from all walks of life, He pursues. Very encouraged by the team, doing small things with great love! Praise the Lord!

“God spoke:
In the middle of the waters; separate water from water!”
God made sky.
He separated the water under sky from the water above sky.
And there it was: He named sky the Heavens; It was evening, it was morning - Day Two.”

Christmas is only 8 days away!!! Are you still shopping for gifts? Stressed out over how much you’re spending or aren’t able to spend? 🤐 This blog post is for you, You are not alone! Check out the link in bio (www.purposedrivenwomen.net) to access the blog and vlog post.🎄

Whenever a piece of pottery turned out imperfect, he would take the clay and make it into something else.
Jeremiah 18:4 GNT

Keep your head up queen! The hell I’ve been through is enough to make a queen lie down and give up. But God. He says get up queen! Regardless of who left you for someone else; regardless of your bank account or credit score or the lack thereof; regardless of any kind of sexually transmitted disease or illness; regardless of your living arrangements; regardless of the friends who abandoned you; regardless of career or business or ministry obstacles; regardless of any self-perceived or inflicted inadequacies- get up! If you would only trust God and move in His direction, He has something amazing for you.
I decree and declare that you are healed from your afflictions. Every demon assigned to oppress you and hold you down must flee in the name of Yeshua. Regardless of who or what you lost, God has already restored it in the name is Yeshua. Throw your head back and look toward the hills from whence comes your help. He is waiting for you!

For those of you who are new, I have been hand-lettering a different name for Jesus each day of December thru Christmas - like an advent calendar but without the crappy cheap chocolate that comes in many of them.

December 17 | Day Seventeen | John 8:12 “When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.’”

"Going through Transformation is not an easy process. Although it appears that what you're currently walking through is unbearable or uncomfortable, God places you in His cocoon to protect YOU as He develops you into the person He has ALREADY ordained you to be. As we are going through our metamorphic stages, there's some things, characteristics, people and way of thinking that God needs shift out of your life as you are stretching out to become the beautiful creature that He formed in His image. All YOU have to do is TRUST God, TRUST the PROCESS, Ask God to be with you and WATCH Him turn you into His beautiful master piece!"~LibFiles 📸Credit Pinterest

Sunday Thoughts: This past week we moved into our new apartment! Woo! Last night, after almost everything was unpacked, I found a small bundle of faded tissue paper. Inside there were beautiful porcelain figures of Joseph, Mary, and Jesus—It was a nativity set I had purchased! Cue the tears.
I got so emotional, emotional before I even understood ~why~. Has that ever happened to you before? Tears sting your eyes before your brain catches up with reason? I sat on the floor of my home wondering why homegirl was so emotional…and then I realized..💡..
If you’ve been following me for a while, you probably know I didn’t grow up in a Christian home. Christmas was “fun” for the first 18 years of my life with the lovely gifts & warm family time. But now, knowing about the life of Jesus and being able to celebrate it in my own home, brings a thrill & excitement to Christmas like never before! This nativity set is a symbol of joy because of what it represents—the birth of Jesus—but also because of what it means to me—the start of my family’s new traditions!
My children will see this nativity set year after year, and each Christmas season, when I unwrap it, I’ll remember buying it as a newly-wed, eager to celebrate Christmas with my family. #SundayThoughts

There's nothing as beautiful as carols by candlelight!

Matching Sunday best 🖤This one led worship beautifully today. The way she serves with so much passion, energy and genuine love constantly inspires me ✨

Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. BUT SEEK FIRST HIS KINGDOM AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
//Matthew 6:25-34//

As we prepare our hearts for Christmas, this is such a beautiful reminder of our SOVEREIGN God. Our Holy, Heavenly Father owns it all. And He loves YOU and wants an intimate relationship with YOU.⠀

When the welcome looks like this you know the Christmas service is going to be amazing. 😍

How's your day looking?

Christmas is a time for celebrating the ultimate gift! We had a giving tree in our lobby for the past few weeks, but the giving shouldn’t stop now. It’s better to give than receive, and we want to team up with you to be the most gracious, giving people around. ☺️🙌♥️

#SundayMorningInspiration: The Master Plan

Did you know that God has a plan for your life? There are a gazillion people God could have put into your body, in the very place you find yourself right now, and He chose you.

As He wove His master plan, the fabric of time and space, He thought, "I'll put her right here. Oh, she is going to be perfect for this exact point in time." And He made sure to plant you right here, right now. And God doesn't make things that are purposeless. God is a God of order, beauty, and precision, He made you for such a time as this.

So, if you find yourself feeling aimless or unworthy, know that indeed, God has predestined you for great things. Maybe you're not walking in them right now, but they are waiting for you.

Take some time in prayer today to ask God, what sort of things has He created you for? What does He want you to be doing with your life? Why did He put you here and now?

Yes, these are big questions, but no question is too big for God. He's got the answer all ready for you if you're willing to hear it. Press in, you are made for more.

you rescued me |
you split the sea so I could walk right through it
you drowned my fears in perfect love
you rescued me
so I could stand and sing
I am a Child of God
“The road to laying down the burden of deep wounds might seem long and difficult. It may be hard to imagine finally letting go of something that has weighed you down for so long. But Christ longs to exchange our burdens for freedom. He wants to help us step out of the dark and bring healing to our heart. Christ has so much more to offer us than the bricks we carry.” // @DesiringGod

and they remind you of the world's beauty 🌷

Sara cried out to the gods, but her prayers fell on deaf ears. Her five year old daughter was still unable to walk, and in debilitating pain. Then she met TTI church planters, who prayed for her daughter. When they finished, Sara look on in amazement as her daughter stood up and walked! Her entire family decided to follow Jesus, and Sara is now studying with TTI to be a disciple maker!

Don't let the hustle and bustle keep you from the peace He came to bring you, especially as you prepare to celebrate His birth! | "And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful." Colossians 3:15 #gritgraceandGod #gritandgracelife

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Proverbs‬ ‭3:5-6‬
This was one of the verses in one of my #advent reading plans today and it got me. Trust is a command, but what does it mean to trust? It means to accept as truth without investigation. It says to do that with all my heart, and to not lean on my own understanding. My understanding is greatly influenced by the world, whether I am aware of it or not. I do not have blind faith. I did the research and whatnot before I committed to God. But once I commit, I must recognize that God is trustworthy—the only trustworthy part of eternity—and I don’t need Him to prove or explain it to me. I need to have faith and believe Him since I believe in Him. I am thankful for this revelation this morning. God is so good to me. Glory to God!

isaiah 9:6
i can imagine Christmas to be
this chocolate-box image of family
and gifts and perfect happiness.
but often this just doesn't happen.
and i end up disappointed.
instead, let us find our deepest needs met
in the Everlasting Father,
as we seek to give to those around us.

• for if we are faithful to the end, trusting God just as firmly as when we first believed, we will share in all that belongs to Christ | Hebrews 3:14
Can you imagine what it was like to wait for so long for the promised Messiah? I’m sure there must have been moments of doubt for many; to have read the prophecies, to hear the promises, but to not see anything point to them?
But then imagine once the details began to fall into place, visible to the eyes of flesh, and the anticipation that built.
I think of Simeon in the temple, when he saw Mary, the virgin, holding the infant Christ. His faith in the promise had to have skyrocketed! His faith in God’s Word must have felt such security. In choosing to keep faith, he was able to see Christ-incarnate after many years of waiting with expectation.
So many in the Bible held onto faith in God and were faithful to Him when they didn’t see His promises bud and when they did. They were rewarded for their faith, mostly in ways they didn’t quite expect but were always better.
“O come, all ye faithful”
We have been called to be His faithful children. Let us come to Him, like those in the Scripture, like the wisemen who followed a star, with joy and behold His greatness.
Continue to keep the faith and continue to be faithful even when it seems deem because God is working in ways we cannot imagine. His promises take time but when they do come - goodness - they are something to celebrate and enjoy.

Well... I've got 20 more of these to paint by Wednesday 😄 Big thanks to everyone who came out to Innocente's market yesterday... I loved meeting so many great people and vendors and can't wait to get your little families to you!

Sundays are for stillness....
