Today is an 'art' kinda day. Working on Commissions and some new pieces. .
Not everyone is made to engage with the world through words and computers, and I love that I get to play with colour and images to express a part of who God is. .
Been really blessed to have been asked to paint for a real variety of businesses and ministries, and personal pieces too! I absolutely love it! (#Linkinbio)
.
If you could have a custom order, what would you want painted? .

Words of encouragement have the power to change someone’s life! 🖤

Greatness and comfort simply don’t mix. You will never discover your full potential or walk in greatness by remaining in your comfort zone. The question is: Are you going to remain where you are and settle in your comfort zone or are you willing to take a leap of #faith and pursue the call to #greatness that’s on your life? The choice is yours. #greatnessiscalling #destinyawaits #pursuingpurpose #PurposeDrivenDreamchasers #creatives #entrepreneurs #inspiration #Christiancreatives #Christianentrepreneurs

Incredibly thankful to have survived one.whole.year!!! Hooray!!! 💃💃🎉🎉🙏🙏
:
After 2-3 years of careful and meticulous planning, it is literally a dream come true seeing Hyphen London live and in colour. There have been hiccups along the way but with every setback has come an opportunity which makes it worthwhile.
:
The best thing about what we do is meeting people like yourselves who actually understand the vision. Thank you so much for supporting us, liking pictures, telling a friend about the brand and purchasing our notebooks; this is only the beginning and the best is yet to come..❤️❤️🙏🙏
Loving the journey

How do you define yourself? Do you believe that your bold, strong, beautiful/handsome, etc?

Sometimes I don’t believe that I’m strong and courageous or good enough. Sometimes I put myself down.

But I’m continuously choosing to believe the truths spoken about myself through His word instead of the lies. Check out the blog and see how I chose to not let the words on this shirt intimidate me. (Sn: my melanin though in this pic 👀👀)

18/31 keeping with my song lyrics theme for this week, I chose the song that’s I can’t ever get out of my head by @mandisaofficial I love this song. My daughters think I went a little too literal with the “bleed” but I just wanted to make the point of what I get out of the song. #christiancreative #christiancreatives #procreate #peacelettering #handletter #hopelettering #procreateletters #ipadpro #ipadartist #typeography #handdrawntype #handdrawntypography #tlt_digital

P A T H S
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Have you ever just sat under a willow tree & gazed up in amazement? The glorious leaves and branches just hanging over you in all its greatness.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As I sat under this tree a few days ago, the Holy Spirit spoke to me...
The branches began to look like paths, not perfect or straight paths. There were only messy, twisting, winding paths. My eyes attempted to follow each branch but there were just too many to track. Then suddenly a path began to illuminate by the light of the sun! I could see the path because of the LIGHT & it was shining from the beginning to the end. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Then it hit me, this tree deeply rooted, is the perfect example of how when we remain rooted in Jesus, the light will always shine upon us. The path He has for you is always good... and if the path was straight & perfect I wouldn’t be sitting under the most glorious tree. It would be just a single boring branch. I think The Lord knew what He was doing when He created a willow tree with countless glorious, beautiful branches.., I mean paths 😆 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So when you can’t see around the knot in the tree and you have given up all hope of ever getting there, remain in Him, and suddenly you’ll be there, right in the heart of your purpose and exactly where you were meant to be. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Today we are most likely saying a final goodbye to a family member. It is not an unexpected passing, one that has been coming for a while. And yet death never feels normal and natural. This is not how God designed it to be. I think every death breaks His heart. He sent His Son to win victory over death so we could experience eternal life with Him. One day He will wipe every tear and right every wrong. In the meantime, He is close to the broken-hearted. ❤️

Tag the person who helps you REMAIN CALM!!
🌀
Ladies there are so many phases in life when we really need that girlfriend that gets us, understands us when we're a little cray cray, and helps us chill before we break down in tears..
💘
But with all of your besties by your side on your wedding day, who is going to be able to be your bridesmaid AND be that girl that can take care of the random kinks of the big day?
💁
That's where a wedding coordinator comes in.
💍
Although some of those besties might also be superwoman in your life, we want to encourage all best friends, family members and distant relatives, to sit back, relax and enjoy the show...aka your wedding day.
👍
Wedding coordinators help with so so much on the big day, sisters. Sometimes they might seem unnecessary, but after working with @courtney_maeve for the summer we have learned that wedding coordinators are in fact QUITE necessary!!

Team Shenanigans 🤪😎😂
.
So...yesterday the Beneath The Fig Tree team met for a day-long planning retreat. Praying, dreaming, thinking about all the FIGS.

We wanted to get a few team pics so you all could meet the other peeps behind BTFT. But we were determined not to have the same old, boring, posed picture, so I told Brandon to be funny. ~as if he needs prompting~ 🙄

He said, okay let’s all turn around.
We did.
He said, take the pic.
Puzzled...I did.
So...there ya have it. Our team photo. Well, one of them. 🤷🏼‍♀️

So let's be real Y'all! Some days are rough and extremely challenging. But those are the days that proves what you are made of. Being an entrepreneur is not that easy as many make it sound and everyday is not always roses and peonies either. Some days you have to pull on Jesus' strength more than usual and press through the day with everything you've got.

Although I'd like to tell you that I was looking like this yesterday, I'm not able to because truthfully it was one of those days where I had to set the to-do list aside and just be. Running on no sleep from the night before I decided to do what's necessary so I was able to make it through the day. What about you? How do you get through a challenging day?

As I’ve been studying Psalm 119, I’ve been captured by the direct correlation between salvation/deliverance and obedience.
🌿
It’s struck me, because so often my prayers for deliverance are that I’d be delivered from suffering for my own comfort. But the Psalmist cries out for deliverance from suffering to praise and obedience.
🌿
May we be quick to remember that we have been saved and delivered for the glory of the Lord, and May we be busy bringing praise and glory to His name throughout our days.

Nelson Mandela spoke this truth, that restoration is going to take more than the oppressed being freed. It takes oppressors being freed from their hatred, prejudice, and narrow-mindeedness as well. Which is why our social justice work needs to be done in partnership with God. Because only he can lead us to that true restoration.

“He [Navy Seal, Saman Gunan] took a risk to save a group of boys he didn’t even know. Him, and so many others, selflessly gave of their time and resources to ensure the boys stayed alive, safe, and would eventually make it out of the cave.
.
Jesus laid down his life for us. He sacrificed it all so that we could have eternal hope. Not a hope that wains with life’s ups and downs, but a sturdy foundation that we can always lean and depend on no matter what our circumstances may be.”

#Repost @justlivingforjesus_ #thechristianbloggers ・・・
Okay y’all real talk!
One of the hardest things in life for me is waiting! I struggle so much because patience and uncertainty are two things that have never been my friend! .
But this week I have learned two things about waiting!
1) Just because the waiting period may be lonely doesn’t mean that God isn’t with you!
Sometimes it’s so easy to believe that because we don’t hear anything while waiting for an answer or waiting for something to happen after the answer, that God left us or He’s ignoring us, but that is simply not true. Because even in the waiting and the silence He is always present, always good, and will never forsake us!
2) The waiting reveals what we really believe!
It’s so easy to say we believe that we heard God say something when things start moving in the direction of whatever it is. But in the waiting is where we see what we truly believe because when things aren’t going the way they “should” or as fast as they “should” we can start to doubt if anything was true. And it’s during this time that we grow in our faith and keep believing that it will happen or decide that it won’t and give up on it and move on.
It’s in the waiting period where our faith is established! .
So here I am waiting! Waiting and trying to make the process and this time as beautiful as possible!! Hope you guys will too!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Happy Wednesday Beautiful People 😘✌🏽

Do you ever forget to stop and thank God for all He has done?

Oftentimes we find ourselves praying for answers, help, guidance, you name it.

But praising Him for all He has done and all that he W I L L do allows us to set ourselves free and grow closer in relationship with Him.

Remember to live a life with a heart full of gratitude for the Lord and all the blessings He has poured into our lives.

His love and mercy for us are never-ending and abundant 💚

No, I didn't just take this photo. As a matter of fact yesterday I spent the day in my pajamas, my hair braided back in 4 and my day got started very late after staying up most of the night. Yes! In the middle of entrepreneurship life happens. In these moments ladies it is extremely important to be very gracious with yourself.

If that means reviewing your to-do list, asking for help or just pressing the day off button, then you do just that. Knowing when to go, when to stop or when to give yourself time is something you must learn to do. I know we are great multitaskers and we want to cross everything off the list but we must use wisdom. One life to live remember?

//LOVE ❤️
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.”
1 Corinthians 13:4-5

#tryagaintuesday heheh turns out calligraphy is not as easy as I thought, still need lots of practice 😌 though let’s not forget that what’s more important to focus on are God’s words 😁

God’s kind of love is directed outwards towards others, not inwards towards ourselves. 我們一起向世界活出愛 💕

Talk about a power couple!!! I never realized how out of whack my hormones were. My moods could switch at the drop of a hat. I felt like I was always tired and always hungry. I’m usually easily irritable, sass is my middle name! Headaches are a normal thing for me. And many more symptoms which I will spare details. Basically, I felt like I was pregnant but without the pregnancy. •
Until progessence plus. I started using it on the reg and seriously I can notice a huge difference. My moods are level. I’m not always hungry, I feel less tired. And I feel overall balanced in life. Hormonal imbalance is very common, I don’t think we share it enough but if your hormones are in chaos your body will be in chaos. It’s important to recognize the signs. •
Yesterday I didn’t use my progessence plus....I could tell. Shoutout to my hubby who deals with all my sass!!! I’ve never used a product like this that’s helped me feel most myself.

And then there’s Valor! It’s just a solid grounding oil for all my emotions! Without Valor I feel like my emotions are doomed to overtake me. I didn’t really believe in a thing called aromatherapy until Valor. It all makes sense now. If you want some I’d love to share...it’s seriously my favorite oil of all time with it’s perfectly blended mixture! It’s crazy! In the best way. So thankful for these essential oils. 🤗 #whollyfleek #hormoneimbalance

I feel just like a sailboat
I don't know where I'm headed
But you can't make the wind blow

I felt the rain on my skin
I've been lost and found
But mostly I've been waiting. - Ben Rector

Today's watercolor spoils! After making the card for my friend's daughter (as seen in my stories today), I decided I want to cut out all the pretty little samples of things from my watercolor practice times and use them in other pieces. My daughter has already claimed the little beach scene as the artwork in the popsicle stick house she is building. (It's pretty cool. Look up a YouTube video on it. Such a fun way to spend long summer days!) What do you like best: 1.the feathers, 2.the flowers, or 3.the beach scene?

Happy Tuesday! 👋 inspired by Shelbie @where.the.willows.grow with her watercolor backgrounds I made this and added a promising verse. 💜 Hope your week is going great!

“On Sunday morning, July 8th, it felt like the whole world was holding its breath as 12 members of a Thai soccer team and their assistant coach were being rescued from a flooded cave after being trapped inside for several weeks...the world was united by the hope that these young men would make it out of the cave alive.” Read about this inspiring story of bravery, sacrifice, and hope, written by @vintageandsoulco, on our blog.

Getting ready for some weddings this weekend! ✨

Faith can turn into bitterness during adversity. But if we embrace the One in whim we put our trust and choose to believe He is good despite our circumstances, we can find a strength and deeper faith in His sufficiency than we ever thought possible. It doesn’t make sense but I have found it to be true. ❤️🙏🏻

Tag an awesome, faith-focused couple!!
✨
In the midst of all of the rush and tasks of a wedding day, it is so easy to lose our focus on Jesus. So today we wanted to share with you a few ideas on how to incorporate Him in your big day!!
💖
1. Designate a moment of prayer after the ceremony! After all of the rush of guests have left the church, schedule 30 minutes to just sit and BE with your husband. Pray together and soak it all in!
🙏
2. Incorporate a moment of prayer or special reading between you and your spouse DURING the ceremony. Perhaps pray a specific prayer together! 👫
3. Instead of a first look, do a first prayer! Whether you are or are not seeing your hubby before you walk down that aisle, take a moment to pray together! ❤️
These are some simple and practical ways that can help your day remain on track and keep all of your tasks focused on what brought ya to this beautiful day - your FAITH! :)with- @maggiedirenzo

Was reminded to rejoice always, even in the midst of trials and suffering. Because when we fix our eyes on the One who never changes, who is the same today and everyday, we can experience this joy, no matter what happens.

And if not, He is still good. 😭
.
.
Our ancestors in faith did it well. .
Having faith that God can move mountains but have greater trust that even if He does not He is still good, He is still God and He's in control.

Lately, I have been in a rut of discouragement. A lot of it is from more personal things, and a lot is coming from simply being an artist and perfectionist at the same time (terrible combination). Lately I’ve been finding myself doing a lot of comparing, instead of simply making art to honor God, and all that leads to is an overwhelming feeling of not being good enough, especially when I see these really amazing pieces and I just can’t seem to rise above this plateau I’ve been stuck at for months. However, through lots of prayer, encouraging talks (and cuddles) from the husband and family, I realize that sometimes it’s alright to have to fail in order to succeed. So I’m scrapping much of the old artist-me and will be trying some new things. In this time, it’s essential that I remember making art is not about me, but about honoring God and letting Him use me to bring people closer to Him. I greatly appreciate everyone who has stayed with me, encouraged me, and especially much gratitude goes to my fellow Christian artists who help keep my focus in the right direction. Stay tuned!

When words cannot be uttered from pain too deep within, be assured God knows. He perfectly hears what you cannot say.
.
In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words...
Romans 8.26

During times of pain and discouragement, we often ask, “Where are you, God?” We beg Him to show up in our situations. And I think He says, “I’m already here. Right next to you. Holding your hand. I’m a whisper away. Pray that you’ll have eyes to see Me.” I’ve “seen” God in the most unlikely places... in a song playing in the grocery store, a road sign that seems to be God speaking straight to my heart. I believe He puts assurances of His love all along our journey. We just have to have eyes to see.

For a lot of writers who also work straight jobs balance is hard. How do you find balance? What do you do to remain balanced and focused on what you want? While you’re writing and holding down the home front here are some ways to find balance:

1️⃣Make a concerted effort to pray. Pray for balance, ask God to eliminate the stuff and the tasks that are cluttering life. Ask Him for the ability to say no. You don’t have to be everywhere at all times. That’s His job.

2️⃣Make time to do recreational activities. Even if it’s just for an hour a day do something fun and for you.

3️⃣ Stay connected to the people you love and the people who love you. Create a writing schedule that honors your life.


Were those tips helpful? You have more ideas? Drop them in comments 👇🏾👇🏾and don’t forget to TAG a writer friend who needs some balance.

It's been a while since we've done this — but I want nothing more than to legitimately, genuinely and honestly pray for you.⠀

And I want to pray for you by name.⠀

✨If you would like prayer — comment your first name below and a quick little snippet of how I can pray for you. (And if you'd rather not share publicly, you can just leave your name OR you can send me a DM with your need.)⠀

All of these names will be written in my sweet little #becauseimhis prayer journal and I will pray for you by name.⠀

Why? ⠀

Because I believe in the power of community. I believe that something great happens when we are brave enough to allow our messes to wade into the light. And I believe in doing it together.⠀

But more than that — I believe in the power of prayer. I believe that prayer changes US more than it changes our circumstances and I would love to be able to pray for you by name 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻

“Things are in order; I am just not the order-maker.”
@writercaroline 🌿
Y’all. This quote absolutely blessed my heart this week. My husband and I bought our first house a year ago, with the old saying, “first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes baby in the baby carriage” ringing in our ears. We knew we were ready to grow our little family, and we so naively assumed the timing was in our hands. We bought a little three bedroom home, and immediately began calling the third room #thenursery.
🌿
We’ve lost three babies since then. The nursery remains empty. We’ve since converted in into a playroom. [Which sounds a bit odd for a couple without kids, but we are in a season of hosting international families, and chose to steward an empty room well by using it to bless our friends children while they were here.]
🌿
We’ve run the tests. I’m a healthy thirty-something, with no apparent reasons for miscarriage. But thirty-something?! That number hurts a little. It’s a reminder that my plans have failed. You see, I was supposed to be a twenty-something with multiple kids in my arms, and more on the way. #largefamilygoals

Wes and I met and married later than I “planned”. We’ve lost three babies. And somehow I’m turning 32 without a child and with the knowledge that those children I planned on are simply not promised.
🌿
But there is an order. There’s an order written by the God who opened Sarah’s womb at 90. I’m quite sure that wasn’t her plan, but it was a good plan that brought glory to His name and laughter to her lips. Even more so, the order for my life has been written by the God who gave His Son to die on a bloody cross to redeem my life from the pit. The single most chaotic, horrific, hopeless situation in history was ordered by God for His glory and my good. Death didn’t have the final say. Christ rose, and in that is my hope.
🌿
So whether we welcome our children at an age we didn’t expect, or whether we die childless, we trust the one who is the Order-Maker. He’s working for His good and our glory, in seasons where tears abound and suffering is deep, and in seasons where joy abounds and laughter rings through the air.
