To see the legacy my dad has left on men has been worth the hardships of the last couple months. It’s incredible. I’m not about to say I know much compared to those that have lived life well and long, and I’m not saying we ask for pain or pray for trials, but from my life experience so far, I can’t help but notice every adversity that’s come my way/my family’s way has been to reveal the areas we need work on and help us rely more on Christ and follow His example only and not this world’s. And that’s a GOOD thing! Failure is NOT a weakness but a place where you can grow, which makes you stronger...AND helps us recognize we are all human together, not above or better than each other. A continuous life lesson of mine: to enter hardships/trials with a positive attitude...especially knowing I have nothing to lose in Christ. ❤️
One of my fav projects to date for a dear friend to give as a gift to an amazing couple...a serving tray made from an old wood pallet with the nails still intact

“I can see your Heart in everything You’ve made...
....
God of salvation,
You chased down my heart,
Through all of my failure and pride.
On a hill You created,
The light of the world,
Abandoned in darkness to die.
.
And as You speak,
A hundred billion failures disappear.
Where You lost Your life so I could find it here.
If You left the grave behind You so will I.
I can see Your heart in everything You’ve done.
Every part designed in a work of art called love.
If You gladly chose surrender so will I.
I can see Your heart,
Eight billion different ways.
Every precious one,
A child You died to save.
If You gave Your life to love them so will I” -“So Will I”
Had the best night kicking off a new season of teaching workshop classes @thecollectivelhemakery in Lisle! Made some wood-burned monogrammed trays for everyone to take home. Loved your community but most of all your creativity even when some of you didn’t know you had it! ❤️ next up! hand lettering Nov 10th. #thecollectivelhemakery #artisanworkshops #workshops #lisle #woodburning #woodart #monogram #monogrammedgifts

New project complete! given to celebrate an American citizenship... ❤️❤️ seriously love love how this wood flag turned out with its variation of burnt red, white and blue = rustic
Another wedding guest book I had the pleasure of making. Was asked to match their invites and turned out great!
Latest project. The thin red line flag for firefighters. 👨🏻‍🚒🇺🇸

Him ❤️
Sometimes it’s just way too much fun to surprise a dear friend with a gift who’s blessing Danny and I so much in this wedding process ❤️❤️❤️ But seriously this verse: “Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us.” Ephesians 3:20
