The January Print for the
Freedom Collection
Remind Yourself to Face Fear and Fly into freedom with Christ in 2021.
Facing Fear_sm.jpg

"Sometimes you are so afraid of falling,

you forget you can fly."

When I first painted Facing Fear, this tagline came to me during the process. I had been painting birds and had this image of a little bird perched over a cliff, afraid of falling.


As I thought about this tagline I realized it’s so often how God sees me when I’m overwhelmed by fear. He created us to be free, just like this little bird, but we get distracted by negative thoughts and difficult circumstances in our lives and allow fear to take hold. Fear can have a powerful impact on our minds and cause us to feel stuck, overwhelmed, isolated or even panicked. Facing Fear was painted to remind us that we were meant to fly- to trust God and live freely for him. 

Use this image as a reminder in your home that God is your help and you can trust him as he calls you to "fly" into freedom with Him.


“For I am the Lord your God who takes hold and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.” Isaiah 41:13

Hi! Thank you for visiting my site. I'm a painter, wife, and mother of three. As a believer and former therapist, I am interested in the connection between thoughts, emotions and behavior. I have found that images have the power to move us and empower us to make changes by giving us a visual reminder of those things we believe in and hope for. I create images that will allow you to let your walls speak messages that encourage, challenge and bring hope to viewers.
