I was ending the workday and started doodling on one of those large desk calendars. I didn't realize people were stopping by to see my funny looking designs after work. More incredibly, word got around and soon I was being asked to do a doodle for them. It was strange being offered money for something that's so much fun to do.
There's a lot of things that happened from that time until a couple of years later when the Baptist Sunday School Board bought four of my prints for all of their stores which are now known as Lifeway.
Things really picked up after that when a marketing company agreed to sell my art in several hundred book stores. Two years later, after a very difficult time at home, I ceased selling retail and began to travel across the country to meet with Youth Ministers, Music Ministers, and the Pastors of a lot of churches. The problem was that I was gone from my teenage sons too much; consequently, I had to rethink things and after a few years away, I've started over online.
Lately I have written a novel and a small book of my poems, lyrics, and some of my personal thoughts about life, family, heartaches, and His incredible love for us all.
This site is more than just a place to buy something I've created. It's my way of trying to reach out to a lot of people, young and old, who were struggling with life long before Covid-19. There are so many negatives meeting us head on every day. Values and history seem to be something old fashioned, not needed in this new and changing world. Christianity is constantly taking a hit for being "out of the loop" in today's society.
If you've already looked at some of my work, there's nothing boring or old fashioned about any of it. As a matter of fact, I've been told by a lot of young people that I make Jesus cool. Didn't know I was doing that, but it's okay if it brings them closer to the Lord.
If this isn't something that you enjoy, but you know someone who might like it, I hope you will let them know about us. Thank you so much for stopping by and love to hear from you anytime. My email address is email@example.com
Take care and be safe.
