I’m glad you subscribed to my lovely things newsletter!

You are scheduled to receive a newsletter from me every month with the loveliest things I can share in the areas of art, writing, reading, creativity, and faith. It’s going to be altogether lovely, especially since you’re part of it!

For being so awesome, I have a few things to give to you here:

My gifts to you..


I’ve put together a 7 Day Christ Centered and Media Free Challenge for those who are feeling the heavy exhaustion of social media and who desire to get back a life that is focused on God.

To learn more about this challenge, click here.

To dive right into it, click here.





Second, I have a short collection of meditations and prayers for you to enjoy (along with some illustrations). It’s called Peculiar People.

To read that, click here.





And finally, my short story is available for you to read. It was published by West Branch Magazine in Fall 2017.

Read it here.

Before you go…

Could you answer three questions that will inform me about your interests and what your biggest question about faith, writing, reading, art and the creative process is? I’ll use your response to developing more content for my blog. You’d be helping me, yourself, and everyone else who wants to create with God. So give it a shot and let me know what you’re thinking about.
