The collage elements inside this artwork belong to me. I did not use someone else’s content to share on this canvas. I needed it to be this way. I needed every word and image to speak of my story. 


60 Years, Age 49

I have a new job and I have my hands full. What do we do when our lives become too busy for our story? My spiritual autobiography once had a voice, but today it’s on the back burner. I believe our spiritual memoir unfolds regardless of whether we dedicate time to sharing it. But, with just a small moment here and there, we can make sure we share our unfolding story and give it a voice.

We need to make space for our spiritual autobiography (our spiritual story) within our lives. Every day I want to make sure that I stop to think about how God was woven into my story. Don’t we want to remember how our day was different because of His presence in the big and little things? We can use our spiritual story to help us refocus our priorities so that God is part of it.

No matter how it may seem you are chosen? Our spiritual story can get lost in the challenges and difficulties of life. We don't feel chosen anymore. We feel lost and forgotten. Writing in a journal, keeping a personal journal or prayer journal can help us find our way back to the place where life makes sense and we have a sense of purpose. Journal writing can remind us of who we are and why God has chosen us.

Take Apart 2,
Age 45

I am in the throes of taking apart my old art: the art that doesn't please me in its entirety. I love pieces of these pieces though, so I start to use them. I make some new work that is not entirely new. I make something better from something not quite right. It is satisfying.


Past Work!





Old Junk
Age 42

I’m gonna pull that Old Junk out of my head. I’m not going to give it a chance to play its old song of doubt, fear and sadness. Instead, I’m going to believe something new, write a new song and let that new tape play. Old tape out, new tape in!
