a ministry of the heart

Art + Soul

These are the ingredients for a life full of meaning, purpose and freedom and who doesn't want that?! 
I would love to encourage you towards these things (plus a few more worthy attributes) through this special-edition of my newsletter called, A Soulful Calling, where I provide intentional sparks for inspiration, reflection, connection and prayer.
*This is a once monthly edition designed to lead you week by week.
You see, I believe in a personal, active and living God. I believe the Holy Spirit is the actual presence of God moving within us; the enabling force that fulfills God's promise to conform us to Him. As we abide in His presence and surrender to His will, God makes evident these beautiful, Spirit-produced characteristics in the lives of His children. 
Isn't that amazing? I don't know about you, but that gives me so much joy + hope! And when I look at that scripture and consider all that God is offering for my life, I'm brought to my knees.




By sharing, you contribute to the inspiration and creative process behind this project while also making a meaningful impact on others who will come in contact with your prayer.

One prayer a week will be randomly selected from your submissions to be painted and included in the Prayers In Color Project. All names and stories will remain entirely private. Each artwork will be signed and titled to represent the prayer, scripture, or story used to inspire the artwork.

Absolutely! When I receive your submission, please know it is carefully and intentionally held as precious and confidential. I will read, engage, and meditate on each and every one, regardless of which is selected. 

Once the painting is complete, you will be contacted for the opportunity to purchase the framed original. You have the first right of refusal, and by buying the original artwork, you not only acquire a unique piece created in direct response to your prayer, but you also support the continuation of this transformative project. If the original is unclaimed, it will be offered publicly on my studio website.

In addition to the original artwork, prints of each painting will be available for purchase, where proceeds from the sale of prints will help sustain the project. The prints will allow you to share the profound beauty of these paintings with others, making the power of prayer accessible to all.

Yes, absolutely! And I want you to celebrate the impact it has. Make sure you sign up for my Newsletter in the footer of my website.

The Prayers in Color Project goes beyond these personal prayer connections. Through our Pray It Forward initiative, free prints of the artwork will be randomly distributed to touch the lives of those who may need a message of hope and prayer the most.

Joining the Prayers in Color Project goes beyond the act of purchasing artwork. It is an invitation to be part of a caring community that shares a common purpose of bringing prayer, art, and inspiration together to make a positive difference in the lives of others.

I love working with others to advance a cause like this and I would love to hear any thoughts, ideas or experience you have that aligns with this project's aim. I gladly accept all offers of assistance with whatever expertise, skills or networking connections you possess.
