Inspiring Girls...



it only takes one moment to have a spark ignited within your soul...

to have a blog post, photo, or piece of art really speak to you and set you on your way...

the print above came to live on the prairie {found here} not just to inspire me in the direction of my art but also on my e-course...this little girl spoke to me, and made me realize what i wish to {speak} to others...

this girl and her NEED to create has really helped me through this past month...

when my daily truth arrives from these girls it feels that i alone am being spoken to...

often i get feeling overwhelmed, wishing and grumbling that something bigger really has to come my way for true happiness, this girl reminds me to enjoy the small things...

this time of year always brings forth the validation of why richard and i choose to raise our kids in the farming way of life. the harvests are in and the hard work, and dedication my little family did throughout the entire year can be gazed upon with full hearts. this girl and her trip back home through farm country gave a new perspective on harvesting....

this girl's words always give me {pause}...

when thinking i was completely insane and all alone in making the decision of an artful, happy life over one that required a heavy heart, this girl took time to reassure. to remind me that moms everywhere are choosing something different....

and when i believe that things just simply are not going my way, that i have lost control and it is not fair, this girl shows me how to let go with grace, and faith.

where do you find your inspiration and the small whispers which help guide you...

I don't know right now ~ been feeling a little bit lost and wandering....trying to stay positive, patient,and find direction again.
Will stop back to check in on the "girls" when my head is less muddled.
Take care

Love this post! I can't wait to see what direction you are headed - I love your art and am excited to see what your e-course will be! I'm still finding my way, but feel like things might be becoming a little clearer. It's been a crazy year so I'm hoping now that things have settled some, that I can spend more time thinking about where I want to go art-wise. xo

You know, I never got to tell you, but your post about following your dream made me cry...sometimes God sends us a little guidance through others decisions. I want to follow my dream too...our kids deserve happy moms...
Thanks for sharing your courage
God bless you in your journey
