Art giveaway & fundraiser


After spending many hours in my art studio recently preparing for some upcoming shows, 
I decided it would be fun to host an art giveaway.

That’s right…you have the opportunity to enter for a chance to win one of these original pieces of art!


"Be still" 
24x24 mixed media on birch board. 
 Inspired by Psalm 46:10 "Be still and know that I am God." 
 This piece will go to the first place winner.


10x10 mixed media on birch board. 
 Inspired by one of my favorite verses Proverbs 24:12 
"Once our eyes have been opened we cannot pretend we do not know what to do,
God who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, 
knows that we know and holds us responsible to act." 
This piece will go to the second place winner.


"Unto me" 
6x6 mixed media on birch board. 
 Inspired by the verse for which my art and photography business are named...Matthew 25:40 
"Truly I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me."
This piece will go to the third place winner.  

As many of you know, God began stirring our hearts over a year ago to consider adopting again.
 In March of this year we took the leap of faith and began the process of filling out paperwork to bring home our daughter to her forever family (you can read more about that here).

We have experienced the miracle of adoption first hand with our daughter Lily and we are so grateful that we said “yes” (even in the midst of our fears of the unknown) and didn’t miss out on the blessing she is to our family.


We are now just weeks away from having our “LID” (Log In Date), which in the adoption world is a huge milestone that marks another step closer to being matched with the little one God has chosen for our family!

We are not all called to adopt; however we can all do something to help be the light and hope
to children who wait to know the love of a family.

So…perhaps you are looking for a practical way to give back this season AND
possibly win something you can keep for yourself or give as a gift!

We ask that you consider making a donation of $5.00 or more to enter
(for every $5 donation your name will be entered once)
Simply click on the “donate” button at the top of the blog to enter for your chance to win.

If you are unable to donate, you can also enter by leaving a comment that includes
your name and email address so that I can contact you should you win.
 All winners must have a shipping address in the United States or Canada.

All donations go directly toward our adoption expenses.
Every dollar makes a difference and helps us reach the amount we need to bring our daughter home.

The art giveaway will end at 11:59 PM CST Monday, December 9th.
There will be three lucky winners chosen from all who participate!
 Winners will be chosen at random and will be announced Wednesday, December 11th.



Henan Kids International Fundraiser {spreading hope...transforming lives}


Three years ago this Sunday, marks the day that our world collided with a beautiful little girl from the Henan province. We received a call from our agency, completely unexpected, knowing that only weeks prior our dossier had been logged into China. Little did we know how quickly our hearts would be knit to this precious angel and broken for the children still in waiting.

November is National Adoption Month and this Sunday is Orphan Sunday. As believers, we are all called to do our part to defend the fatherless and be a voice of hope to those without a family.

"We can do no great things...only small things with great love." -Mother Teresa

It is with great love and joy that I share with you a wonderful opportunity to do your part to give hope to the orphan. I will be selling a limited amount of "born in my heart" China art to benefit Henan Kids International.



Henan Kids International is a group of adoptive families who have children from Henan.
 Their motto "love changes lives" falls right in line with their mission to transform the lives of the children living in the orphanages of Henan through acts of service and love.
 They sponsor surgeries, raise funds for orphanage supplies and volunteer their time.

Above are examples of the art that is available to purchase online using the paypal button at the top  of the blog.

The larger pieces are 6x6 painted on birch board with a 1 1/2 inch border that comes ready to hang.

The smaller mini canvas magnets are 3x3 in size.
I have a limited amount of each design ("forever", "so loved", and "hope-love").

Please specify the design you are ordering in the pull down menu.
(each piece is hand painted and may differ slightly from the photo above)
Please allow 1-2 weeks for delivery.  If you have additional questions please email me.

Shop with a purpose and give the gift of hope to children who continue to wait for their forever families.  These will go on a first come first serve basis...deadline to order is November 15th!

I will be giving 30% of all sales to HKI and the additional amount raised will go toward our family adoption. 
Thank you for spreading hope and transforming lives.
