Phil and I recently appeared as guests on Jim Wilson’s TV show, PrayNorthState, shown in northern California on Feb. 1st. During this 1/2 hour interview, Jim asked for a “glory story.” I told Jim and the audience about seeing a vision of Jesus while at the Rib Cook-off in Sparks, NV. We hope you enjoy this portion from the show.

Phil and I will be setting up our Faith Colors prophetic art booth on July 4th at the Momboosa Music Festival on the shores of Lake Almanor in Chester, California. We invite you to come and join in the fun. Check out the website:Last Saturday we participated in a music festival in Reno.Music, laughter and fellowship were important features of the Reno Outpouring that took place Saturday, June 27 at Wingfield Park in Reno, NV. A variety of bands led worship and praise bringing the name of Jesus joyfully into the community. River rafters, swimmers, bikers, and people strolling along the river stopped to listen. Davidic dancers moved gracefully with the music and puppeteers entertained with a playful touch. The delightful smell of barbecue filled the air. Expressive worshippers in the audience joined in the fun by dancing and filling the air occasionally with shouts of joy.
Phil played songs that declared the awesome name of Jesus while I painted a prophetic picture that I named Transformation. The painting speaks of the transformation that takes place in believers by the precious shed blood of Jesus.
Our booth featured my art and book. We heard many affirming and positive comments from people stopping to admire the inspirational art and learn a little about prophetic art. A new friend, a messianic Jew, noticed my colorful art and shared about the Hebrew alphabet and the rainbow. I heard again that my art is very unique and colorful.
God’s peace and love fell freely in the park. We opened our booth for prayer too. We prayed for some to be released into prophetic art. One young woman claimed she felt like a new person after prayer in Jesus’ name! Another felt heat on his back. One said he was shaking less. Others said they felt lighter and better. One young woman was restored to Christ. One world traveler asked many questions about Christianity. She thanked us after we prayed for her that Jesus would reveal himself to her.
Special thanks go to Jeni, Rita, Dave, and Janet for helping us, especially by praying with Phil and me for other people. You are amazing!
Eric and Wendi Moen, you are awesome for making this outpouring in the park possible. We had so much fun!

Phil, my husband, and I drove over 1000 miles to Estes Park, CO for the Colorado Christian Writers Conference (CCWC). We loved seeing mountains and more mountains. We were told the forceful winds in Wyoming were normal. Herds of elk and antelope grazed near the highway. We stopped at Bridger’s Fort, an important layover for pioneers of the past.
While at the CCWC, I learned more about independent publishing. They want to redefine self-publishing, and so the new name, independent publishing. Not only is there more profit for the author, but more freedom for the author to develop ideas. Authors need to market their books whatever route they take, quite a challenge.
I learned more about myself. On the final morning of the conference, I met with a radio talk show host, Roy Hanschle. He helped me understand how to prepare for radio interviews. I worked on defining the central truth of my message. Here is my statement:
Doing prophetic art connects me to Jesus releasing peace and joy in my heart and into the designs. These designs release heavenly grace to others. I want to help people understand that God’s grace may be expressed in the arts. It’s a way to get in touch with the Lord in a fresh way that brings joyful freedom.
On the final afternoon of the conference the bright sunny day and majestic mountains beckoned to me. So, Phil and I trudged through the muddy snowy path in the Rocky Mountain National Forest up to Alberta Falls. As I sat looking at the falls, suddenly I heard my name. I turned to see my new friend Lori, also a CCWC escapee, with her daughter. God is so good!
