A deep desire of my heart is to use my words in an efficient way in order to breathe life into those around me. I find that I am constantly growing in the ways I direct my speech with each season that life brings. Whenever I think I am assured that my words are of a place of peace, encouragement, and positivity, life throws a curveball, testing what truly is in my heart. As the first piece of the Speak Life series, it expresses my mission to create life with every word spoken.

Lips of Life
Expressing the beauty and life released from speaking words of truth and encouragement. 9" x 12" watercolor
"...Words can create false illusion They can dehydrate a heart. Words can speak poisonous lies. They can lead you astray. Words can create perversion, crushing a heart.
Words can make promises. But how will they be fulfilled? Whose words are you believing? Whose words are deceiving you?"

Soup of Life
"Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones." -Proverbs 16:24
This piece is influenced by the proverb above. Words that are packed with encouragement, truth and gentleness can provide deep nourishment to a famished soul. Positive words can revive the contrite and birth life into the lifeless. When I receive words of encouragement and truth from loved ones, they fuel me like nutrients from food.
May this serve as another reminder to speak life to those surrounding you!
