Why I created Art4TheGlryOfGod ministry?
Contrition, Abortion, & Grace…
From 15-25 yrs. of age I lived a Life in Darkness & Sin to escape my dysfunctional family.
My father took his life when I was 4. My mother tried to take her life many times, married & divorced 3 times before my 16th birthday. Suicide, abuse, alcohol, drug addiction was all I knew. Drugs were my escape of choice which lead to premarital sex & abortion which lead to more drugs an abundance of shame.
But by God’s grace I saw myself in the mirror one day & knew I did not want to live that way any longer. There had to be another way…
Studying the beautiful Christian images during many hrs. of Art History classes in college, “The Annunciation” image in particular with mother Mary, gave me hope to look for that better way. Several yrs. of counseling lead to a healthy relationship & the Catholic faith. I was baptized & confirmed at 28, on the Feast of the Annunciation, March 25th 1989.
ALL my sins were Wiped away for that New Beginning I was searching for.
I know the many sins that I caused Jesus to put Him up on that cross & I am committed to making amends & to show Him my love. Now it’s time to tell the world of the Love & Mercy Christ had for me. He had called me out of the darkness into His wonderful Light…
God has been so good to me. He has given me a second chance, a wonderful, loyal, & devoted husband, & three precious children. I now spend time outside abortion clinics in prayer & as a silent witness in hopes of discouraging other women of having an abortion and volunteer one day a week at a local pregnancy resource center as a client advocate to women in crisis pregnancies. I share my art photography with as many people as I can to share my Love for God & His Mercy on me. Hoping to point others to Him.
So please hear my story & remember the suffering. Choose Life & wait for the man that God has planned just for you. Give Him the pure woman that He wants you to give, and receive the beautiful gift of Love that God wants you to have in marriage! “Go and sin no more…”
“I tell you, her sins–and they are many–have been forgiven, so she has shown me much love. But a person who is forgiven little shows only little love.” ~ Luke 7:47
As a Christian Photographer, my goal is to ‘Follow the Son’ & hopefully encourage others to do the same. I post images throughout the day on my social media websites inspired by the daily readings, prayers and meditations.

And He said to the woman,
“Your faith has saved you; Go in peace.” ~ Luke 7:50
“…Go and sin no more.” ~ John 8:11
“The faith Jesus saw in this “sinful” woman was different. He saw an open heart and a willingness to change her ways. He saw a heart that was pierced with love. And for that, heaven’s doors were opened to her.
What a generous God we have! He always welcomes us. He is always ready to forgive us, to deliver us, and to teach us. He hears our every cry for help, and it delights him when we run to him.
Today, let’s all take on the faith that this woman had by simply turning to Jesus and telling him that we want to be with him. He will take care of the rest.”
“Thank you, Jesus, for the seed of faith that you have given me. I come to you today, with all my sins and failings, and lay them at your feet. I know you can heal me and save me!” ~ http://www.wau.org
