You Are a Gift!

You Are a Gift! Children's Book

Oh, what joy! It’s here – it’s here – it’s finally here! πŸ˜ŠπŸ’—πŸ™Œ Last year I had the absolute pleasure of illustrating a book. Best of all, I gained a new friend in, author, Shelly Whitenburg!

This book is a darling poem that teaches children that they are a treasure and they have a gift to share with others: God’s love! My little stick figures decorate the pages encouraging the young readers to share, include, and, of course, smile! 😁

Couldn’t help but share the page of my cameo with Glory! 😍 To add this wonderful book to your bookshelf visit Redemption Press, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble! πŸ’—πŸ“šπŸ’—

Merry & Bright

When the weather starts getting grey I get out the Christmas decorations. I don’t care what month it is, if its gloomy outside, I want merry & bright inside! πŸ˜πŸŽ„ Thankfully {for this sunshine loving girl} it’s been a more mild winter here in Savannah. That didn’t stop me from bringing a few strands of lights to my husband’s work and hanging up some cheer, though! β˜ƒπŸ’—

You make my life Merry & Bright!

This simple sketch of two retro Christmas bulbs in love is a fan favourite. I probably sell this card more than any other! Do you have a special someone lights up your life with cheer? Brighten their face with a Christmas Lights greeting card! Does your sweetheart prefer t-shirts or art prints? Browse my collection of Christmas Lights gifts!

Halloween Prayer Bookmarks


I love praying for my neighborhood – especially the children that live there! While I do not celebrate Halloween, it’s an opportunity to meet all the little ones I’ve been praying for – they literally come knocking at my door! 😊 It’s a wonderful evening to be a light where God has placed you!

To encourage the families in my neighborhood I’ve created bookmarks – you can hand them out on their own or attached to goodies! On one side there is a fun animal fact. The opposite side says β€œOur family prayed for your family!” and the verse β€œO Lord, what a variety of things you have made! In wisdom you have made them all. The earth is full of your creatures. Psalm 104:24” πŸ’•

Halloween Prayer Bookmarks

I’ve also made a small sign that you can put in your window or place outside your door. It reads, β€œThanks for dropping by! Please let us know if we can pray for you!” It’s a beautiful way to open the door to building relationships with your neighbors!

A Prayer for Your Neighborhood

I asked Christian author {and my mother-in-law!}, Julie K. Gillies, to write a prayer for the children in our neighborhoods! In addition to assembling your treats and waiting by the door, pray these blessings over the kids in your community!

Dear Lord, I pray Your blessing over every child who comes to my door today. Lord, stir their hearts and reach out to them. Bring godly friends into their lives and put books and materials into their hands that will lead them to You. May each child who comes to my door tonight come to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. 

Let them walk in light, embrace Your truth, and experience Your love for themselves. May they know their future is in Your hands (Psalm 31:15), and always take delight in You, Lord (Psalm 37:4). Let them understand what is just, right, and fair, and find the right way to go (Proverbs 2:9). May wisdom enter their hearts and knowledge fill them with joy (Proverbs 2:10). May wise choices watch over them and understanding keep them safe (Proverbs 2:11).  Lord, show them Your unfailing love in wonderful ways (Psalm 17:7a) all the days of their lives.

It is in the precious name of Jesus that I ask these things, knowing You are good and You are able, Amen.
