“Why Art & SoulWorks? God told me to feed His sheep.”
Do you know how to make God laugh? Tell him your plans!
Many of us can identify with this statement, and it truly resonates with me. I retired from a successful sales career 10 years ago. Founding the Art & SoulWorks business was something I had not considered. Not for a moment. Until Jesus led me to do it.
I have sought Jesus through prayer and study all of my life. This was not a passing fancy – I have always sought answers to life’s challenging questions.
- What is love?
- What is the truth about Jesus?
- What is my life purpose?
One day while in prayer and meditation, I heard a voice. he said, “What you’re looking for is a relationship with Jesus.” Exactly! But since I hadn’t had much luck on my own, I angrily responded, “Then send someone to teach me!”
God gave me the answers I sought. The answers were literally delivered to my door!
God did send someone to teach me. A few days later, a stranger came to my door. I learned that, without exaggeration, he is a true prophet who advises governments around the world. In addition to his teachings, he brought me a DVD – as he had been instructed to do. This prophet, sent by God, changed my world forever. At last, I knew my purpose.
Through this prophet, God told me, “If you love me, feed my sheep.”
Now that I knew what God wanted me to do, I needed to figure out how I feed His sheep.
I believe that once you see the real face of Jesus, you can begin to know Him, to connect with Him, and to develop a relationship with Him.
Art has always been a thread throughout my lifelong search for Jesus. I believe it is a gift from God. To fulfill my mission to feed His sheep, I was led to use the internet to share, Prince of Peace, the image that millions believe is the real face of Jesus to everyone, everywhere in the world.
That’s why everyone who visits Art & SoulWorks is invited to download a portrait of Jesus, free of charge. The portrait is “Prince of Peace,” painted by child artist Akiane Kramarik. You’ll find it and other paintings by Akiane here at Art & SoulWorks. In fact, we are the Trusted Source for “Prince of Peace” high-quality reproductions.
To feed God’s sheep, I created a community to offer inspiration and encouragement.
Downloading the image of Jesus is not the only reason to visit Art & SoulWorks. I know from experience how frustrating it can be to seek Jesus and not find Him. Or to be in pain, with no place to receive solace. Or to feel lonely and disconnected.
That’s why you’ll find inspirational blog posts at Art & SoulWorks. We truly strive to create a community, resource, and respite for those who seek to know Jesus – and for those who seek to reconnect with Jesus.
Plus, we have a thriving Facebook community of nearly 250,000! You are invited to join our Facebook page to share your struggles and triumphs with like-minded people from all walks of life.
And yes, we also invite you to shop here for portraits of Jesus created by acclaimed child artist Akiane Kramarik and other inspirational items.
Also, to help feed God’s sheep, we donate proceeds from our sales.
By donating a significant percentage of the proceeds, this enables me to feed God’s sheep in another, very tangible way. We donate over 20% of our proceeds to a variety of worthwhile causes that serve the physical and spiritual needs of people around the world.
