“It was the first time I realized that painting could capture the Word of God, speak into people’s lives and give me the opportunity to share my faith.”

BLOG

Every day all around the globe, artists on mission are creating, cultivating, and contributing in their communities. As they seek to see their art used in the work the Lord is doing, we want to share their stories to encourage and inspire.
This blog is a place to read those stories, giving you a glimpse into how the Lord is using the arts around the world.

Alive in Christ

Written by

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved.

Ephesians 2:4-5 (ESV)

This week, I made an unusual discovery. My husband was busy weed-eating our front yard, and I was surveying the area, watching the weed-eater do its thing and thinking about the work we would still need to do to landscape our front walkway. Then, something caught my eye.
