As my fine art/graphic design business grows AND I continue to grow within my craft, I find myself wanting more and more to make what I do about others and not about myself. I know that God gave me this gift to be used in a special way and I have asked Him lately, "How do I turn my art business into a true ministry?" Well, tonight the Lord spoke to me clear as a bell. I have worked in the field of childcare for over 17 years and I've seen the needs children have and the heartache many of them face...basic needs for love, food, water, and shelter. One day I'd like to open an art center that will give neighborhood children a place where they can express their artistic creativity. There's something so healing about art! One of my fondest childhood memories of elementary school involves me finger painting on a large table in my classroom. Even today when I throw paint on a canvas, it seems all tension, anxiety, fears and regrets just disappear into thin air. "Poof...they're gone!" However, the ministry the Lord spoke to my heart about tonight has to do with giving to charities that help needy and vulnerable children worldwide. I have always loved watching CBN Christian Broadcasting Network's 700 Club and I know of their reputation in helping people all over the globe. I am so excited to join with their 'Orphan's Promise' ministry! On top of my monthly giving to this awesome ministry, I will be giving $20 from every print sold and 10% of the price of every original sold in my gallery towards the ministry as well. I've asked God so many times to help me decrease so that He can increase in me, through my art and in all areas of my life. I am so excited about what the future holds!!!
