It’s been a while since I published something…
truth be told (because this is a blog and I should be honest), I’ve taken a hiatus from creating and writing. There have been lots of changes and challenges I’ve needed to work through and seek God about.
At the end of 2017, it was clear to me that I had to “go back to the basics”. Get focused once again, get a hold of my “why”, and take care of my emotional and spiritual health.
The only way I can describe what I felt was sadness and a very heavy heart. Some people told me I was experiencing loss and grief. You ask, “loss over what”? Exactly. I didn’t know that going through infertility would make me feel this way.
I say all this to say that I’m slowly getting out from under that dark cloud. There are good and bad days. But in general, I’m feeling more motivated and hopeful than I was a few months ago.
I have not forgotten about Styld by Grace or all the loyal people who have supported and loved me and this dream God put in my heart. I just want to be able to create and write from a place of hope and encouragement. Not bitterness and hurt.
Many of you know each year I create free artwork for Holy Week. It’s such a meaningful week for me. It reminds me of how close Jesus is to me. How much He loves me. And it ignites a deeper love for Him in my heart.
To honor Him (and this little dream of mine called Styld by Grace), I created a few wallpapers. I think it’s the perfect time to come out of hiding.
Share them, keep them, and let them remind you of His great love.
With all my love and appreciation,
P.S. If you’re on Instagram, I’ll be sharing them on my Stories as well 🙂
