Let the magical peace turn your eyes towards the heavens

“Let the magical peace of twilight turn your eyes towards the heavens”                                                                                                                                                       ~ H. Wombacher

I can’t believe it is almost Saturday!

I am bursting at the seams with excitement.

While we have been preparing for you to join us for the day, we have been praying that the Lord prepares your heart too.

Get ready to see with new eyes, meet new friends and rest in the fellowship of His grace-filled love!

We can’t wait to meet you!

It is here! Our Spring made. Creative Gathering


New Things for Our Spring made.~ Don’t delay Register Soon


The sun is shining, the plants are pushing up through the soil, and  I am excited for the changes that come with spring! A couple of days ago I got a wee birdie surprise. Can you see it?

littlebirdienest Yes, there is a nest in there!

It was a sunny Pacific Northwest afternoon, just lovely out in my back yard. I was watering, I bent down to adjust the water flow at the spigot and saw that there is a wee little nest in the decorative space of my garden hose holder. I squatted down to get a better look and see if I could open up the hatch to see it better and an angry mama bird darted out towards my face. I had no idea she was even in there! She was so fast and so CLOSE, I yelped in surprise and nearly fell backwards. That was one protective little chickadee!

As the date for our Spring made. approaches, another thing that has surprised me this spring is how quickly it is filling up. I would like to encourage those of you who are thinking about coming to this lovely day, to be brave and sign up, we are already half full and don’t want you to miss out on all the delightful surprises that await you. Won’t you come and join us?To register click HERE

“You don’t have to carry a burden of shame.”

 You. Are. Free.

And because you belong to Him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death. 

Romans 8:2 (NLT)

“With God there is no condemnation.

You have been declared “not guilty.”

Christ’s righteousness is now yours.

He’s the lifter of your head.

The chains of shame are cut.

Now fly!”

Do You Need Jesus-Our Spring Gathering?

Man do I need Jesus! You know, the older I get the more I know this to be true of my life. I am reminded of this sentiment when in fellowship with other believers, or when I am muttering through a quite time, but mostly, when I am creating and working on my art. That is when the Lord and I do soul work.

This year was a difficult one for my family and I. We dealt with some heavy burdens. The kind of burdens you would gladly hand over to Jesus and then run the other way, while yelling thhhaannnkkss! Silly image right? Maybe you know what I mean. But I know, that I know, it is through our sufferings that we come to know how amazing our God is and what a friend we have in Jesus! Suffering is the exposure we need so that  we can grasp onto the hem of His garment and say I need Jesus!

from the Passion of the Christ

As I come out of the clouds of heavy burden into the light and life of Easter it all just hits me fresh,  man do I need Jesus!

Do you need to do some soul work? Perhaps you desire to set aside some time for you and the Lord to restore the “joy of thy salvation?”  If you said yes, then I would like to invite you to made. A Creative Gathering coming May 2nd!



  • A time of encouragement, where you will learn that your story matters.
  • A time to reflect and learn about your creative connection to a Creator God.
  • A time to fellowship with those who are seeking and learning about the creative process.
  • A time to reorient yourself and do a bit of your own creative soul work.

For those of you who attended our Fall Gathering, you might be wondering, will they be doing the same guided projects?  Here is your answer: we will be doing some new things, in a new place, with a new guest teacher! How’s that for new fun? Sign up at our online registration page HERE, do it soon! As always space is limited, and payment guarantees your spot. If you have already registered, Hallelujah! Details of our day will be coming to your inbox, so be on the look out.

We are praying for each of you and can’t wait to see you!
