the artistic process is not only a way to emotional and spiritual growth but it is also a form of prayer, healing, meditation, and relaxation. It is our hope and prayer that by exploring your own creative power, you will deepen your relationship with Jesus, our Creator and Healer.

Come…and experience the Lord’s healing through your creativity…

God speaks to each of us in the language He knows our hearts will understand best

For some it is words, for others music, and others, visual art. The number of languages God speaks is as numerous as there are souls. The creative process can be a prayer, a dialogue with our Creator. Through prayer, music, and guided visualization, we listen for God’s voice speaking to our hearts and to use a variety of artistic mediums to respond from our hearts in the language of colors, symbols, images, and words. Ready to give it a try? All you will need is an openness to the process and a few basic art supplies (could be crayons and paper!).

Healing with Art

When PTSD robbed me of my ability to articulate my emotions and my memories, I needed to find someway to express all that was overwhelming me. I was drawn back to the artistic mediums I enjoyed when I was younger. I soon realized that in my creative expression I was not only telling my story but also dialoguing with Jesus, my Healer. His presence in my life and His healing power were made visible in my art.

As you can see by the samples of my therapeutic art below, healing with art is not about creating a work of art to hang in your home. The healing power of creativity is found in the process and prayerful reflection on the experience. The masterpiece being co-created by you and God is YOU… you will be made new and discover that you… your heart, soul, mind, and body… are the true masterpiece.

Praying with Art


I have kept a prayer journal for many years, in fact I probably have over a hundred packed away in shoe boxes! Two years ago as artistic expression became my primary language for articulating the trauma and overwhelming emotions I was experiencing, I experimented with creative prayer journaling.

Now I have a collection of lovely journals where I have used colorful markers, watercolors, crayons, and colored pencils to record the words, images, Scripture verses, and prayers that arise in my heart to heart talks with my Beloved. Some pages are simply a word or phrase written with color and decorated with a swirl or heart. And some pages are more “elaborate” with a watercolor background or small drawings. Taking the time to think about what words I most want to remember and how I might creatively express them in my journal extends my prayer time and allows Jesus’ messages to permeate my imagination, intellect, and heart. Praying with art has created beautiful little reminders of my heart to heart talks with Jesus and it refreshes my soul and encourages my heart to glance through these journals from time to time.

Relaxing with Art


When I abandon the rules, expectations, and pressure to create a visual masterpiece, my time of prayerful creativity is an act of mindfulness and a time of relaxation. The possibilities and ideas for relaxing and creative activities are endless and as varied as each of us. The challenge is to dedicate time to explore your unique creative language. What activities draw you in and absorb your focus so you experience God’s abiding presence and peace despite the chaos and anxiety? Below are a few of my favorites for relaxing with God, provided as ideas to get you thinking. Don’t forget to ask our Lord, “Jesus, what is the creative language of my heart? Help me discover and speak this language in dialogue with You.”
