Thankful Thursday!!



1. I am thankful for Mary Brack urging me to draw more diverse girls. I took her "urging" into consideration and painted her beautiful god granddaughter!! I love the way she turned out!

2. I just have to say it....I am thankful for coffee!

3. The Lord and how he speaks to me through His word and His people (this happened a lot to me this week...and I needed to hear his voice).

4. Where I live.  San Diego is the best city in the world (IMHO).

5. Last but not least...I am thankful that my mom's surgery went well and she will no longer experience pain associated with gall stones.


What are you thankful for this week?

I am also auctioning off a painting along with Mystele Kirkeeng for the Water Project. Click on the link here to find out more information about this amazing project.  The auction is being held right now on my Facebook page (click on the link to make your bid).

Here is the painting I am auctioning...

Thankful Thursday!!



Thankful Thursdays is a new meme from His Kingdom Come.

Each Thursday I will list 5 things I am thankful for from the previous week.  So here goes!


  1. I am thankful that God has put these 4 wonderful women in my life and that we have the same vision for His Kingdom Come!



2.  That I got home safely from Florida (I'm not a good flyer).

3. My son and his baseball team for finally winning a game after weeks and weeks of losing. They all have had such an amazing attitude and have never let "losing" get them down one bit!! They are  a wonderful group of boys!!



4. The amazing group of women in my Bible Study!! I couldn't ask for a more Godly group of women around me who are always willing to pray for me, encourage me and allow me to share my struggles openly with absolutely no judgement.

5. My daughter who continues to impress me with her strength, beauty and resolve!!


Come and join us at His Kingdom Come for free faithart projects and community with other amazing people!!

Peace and Blessings,
Shonna

Sunday Mornings 2...I'm a guest Artist!!


I am so excited to announce that I will be a guest artist in the new online Faithart Journal class, "Sunday Mornings 2" with Mixed Media artist Mindy Lacefield.
Last year, I took Mindy's  first class "Sunday Mornings" and God really used the class to speak to me. I had been lukewarm in my walk with Him for some time and He was pursuing me to put my faith and art into action for Him. Mindy's class really brought me closer to God and helped me to completely surrender my life to him once and for all. Soon after the class was over, I felt God calling me to offer my own online faith journaling class, "Kingdom Come" (available here). My class "Kingdom Come" prompted Diane Marra to get in touch with me about being part of a group of Christian women who wanted to start a Faith Based Art Community. That started my journey with His Kingdom Come and being part of the wonderful Foundation Team!! Isn't it great how God works in our lives??
When I found out that Mindy was offering "Sunday Mornings 2," and was looking for a few guest artists, I had to contact her. Mindy was already aware of how her first class affected my life and I'm happy to say she was extremely excited to have me teach a lesson in her course. I highly recommend this class. Mindy has a very unique style that is loose, intuitive and playful. She really has a way of helping students loosen up and get in touch with how to have fun with art (like we did in childhood).
To learn more about how to sign up for the class (and to view my artist profile), visit this link (Early Bird special is $19 if you sign up before April 20).
Peace and Blessings
