Not a day has gone by in thirty-five plus years that I haven't prayed.
But it was just in the last four years I began writing down my prayers in my journal.
That has been the single most powerful thing to change my life I can think of.
December is here..the most magical month of the year!
I am obsessed with all things Christmas...music, movies, retro specials from the 60's and 70's, family get-togethers and of course...the birth of my Savior, Jesus Christ.
And while gifts under the tree are nice,
the only gifts I truly need are my family and the love of Christ in my Heart.

A few years back I decided to switch it up a bit and moved over to another blogging platform. While I enjoyed my time there and wrote consistently for a year, it never quite felt like Home. There is just something about THIS place that brings me peace, comfort and joy. I think it's because this is where I began. This is the place I met so many wonderful women from around the world. I also wrote dozens of FREE courses and shared them all with YOU. My first year long course...52 Weeks of Being Me brought women from all over the globe to my little spot here on the web. It's still my most pinned course...being pinned nearly 100,000 times! You can find it here. It's completely FREE and guaranteed to add inspiration to your life!
These days I am known as Brave Heart Faith Warrior. My Faith is something I am fiercely passionate about. I am currently writing my first manuscript about the power of writing down your prayers and connecting with God. You can get a taste of that as well as a Community of the most incredible women in my Facebook Group...I invite you join today!
You can also click on the SUBSCRIBE button below my blog title or on the link on the top right that says Free Art Journaling Ideas Newsletter...add your email and I will add you to my BRAND NEW Newsletter list! You can expect those at least twice a month!! You will also be the first to know about my new classes, products and MORE! Come be a Faith Warrior today!!!
You can expect to see more of me as I am diligently learning and working on growing my business. God has placed a Purpose in my life to connect with women and help them by encouraging them to connect with God. It is my prayer that you will go on this Journey with me. I am so happy you are here!

|My first ever art journal I created for Soul Restoration...an on-line course by Melody Ross.|
And yet, I felt like I wasn't enough.
|A page from journal I created several years ago.|
|A page from my art journal. I LOVE using images of myself in my journals. So powerful!|
|A page from my art journal. Using vintage images is one of my favorites!|
|A page from my art journal. Using magazine images has become my new thing!! I am soooo inspired by this type of creating!!!!|
|One of my latest art journal pages.|
|Combing my love of acrylic and ink and magazine images.|
|One of my favorites from a few weeks ago.|
|Another recent page from my art journal.|
|An older page from my art journal. I LOVE what it says..."Go Your Own Way". "It takes courage to surrender."|

|My first scrapbook page ever!! Back in the Mid 90's.|
And that patterned paper...LOL.
Stickers in corners...
But you know what I LOVE about this book??
The fact that I captured ALL these priceless memories of my family.
Like this page...my cute 2 year old son added his own art to this page. He is now almost 23 and still enjoys seeing this!
Once I finished this scrapbook I created DOZENS more.
I have hundreds and hundreds of scrapbook pages
documenting my family's life.
And as my family grew up my scrapbook style evolved
and got much better.
I was even published in Making Memories Magazine!
Sometime in 2009 is when I found Mixed Media Art.
It filled up my SOUL! And it was so very HEALING!!
The more I created art the better I felt. And the better I felt the more I wanted to share it with EVERYONE! That's why, in 2009 I started this blog...Words of Me Project.
I wanted to share my love of art and the healing powers it has.
So I did!
I began having challenges and free classes and slowly but surely started to gain a following. One day I decided to
start a Facebook group....Mind.Body.Soul.
My little group grew and grew until we had over a thousand followers!
Then sometime last year I decided to change the name of our group to Brave Heart Sisterhood Mixed Media Art. And we grew some more...
We are now over 2,000 followers.
I am grateful for each one!
In 2012 I was going through a rough patch and needed art in my life more than ever. I felt compelled to share my journey so I wrote this class...
52 Week Being Me
It is my most pinned class...over 160,000 times!
The bigger I grew the more I doubted myself. I wasn't
on any design teams and thought if I wanted to keep my
followers and continue creating I better get "more known".
I applied for several teams but always got a NO.
Talk about doubting myself.

and the past 3 months I have experienced nothing short of a Revolution.
A creative Revolution.
One that I think many of us are in need of.
Join me next week as I begin to share my Story, my Art and my Heart.
