take down giants
set captives FREE
maybe even cook a good meal just to BEGIN..
to let each other know WE ARE NOT ALONE!
our first lookbook..ebook..some kind of book…haha
to say it was a learning curve is an understatement!
my upcoming surgery had us in a time crunch which meant we didn’t get to put
EVERYTHING in it THIS go round
but hey...we are trusting Jesus with it all…it’s ALL GOOD!! right?
lesson learned: there is A LOT of work in putting together a lookbook!
volume I is a sampling of sortsof what is to come
WHO took these pictures you ask???
i love this person so much..and i have been so…beside myself to share her and her beautiful work with all
we mailed lissa the shirts and she ran with it telling the story that we all believed God wants women to hear
lissa so freely gave herself..her heart..to us
i’m just going to SAY it…it was God!
she bared her soul and let Jesus pour Himself into her
i can’t even pick a favorite..can you?
i LOVE them all!!
her gift is telling soul stories through the lens of her camera she lives her life REAL and is a living example of allowing God to heal her and set her FREE
to BECOME all that He had in mind for her from the beginning
the story of FREEDOM in Jesus!
real BEAUTY..true BEAUty is LIVING COURAGEOUSLY … in FULL FREEDOM
in a relationship with JESUS!!
Jesus BEAUTY crosses all barriers
age ethnicity economic status social status
whatever..you name it

God, You catch us -You can reach alllll the way
from sky to sea – You can pull us out of anything!
from the ocean waves that leave us gasping to the giants breathing out threats and taunting us,
only You truly know the void in which we are drowning
they hit us when we’re down, when life’s blows come
but God always sticks with us You stood us up in a WIDE OPEN field we stood there…SAVED — surprised to be LOVED! (the last two sentences are my fav…)
YOU God – are making our lives complete..moment by moment..day by day
when we place ALL the pieces before You when we surrender our plans for YOUR plans
when we are alert to Your ways
and don’t take You for granted
daily going over the ways You work;
we try not to miss a beat
we begin to feel put back together
and we practice trusting you ..with each step
God..only YOU…You rewrite our lives when we surrender the book of our heart to your eyes
