Art with a Heavy Heart...

I knew I had to have some level of consistency when we decided to add this blog feature.

To be honest- today is not a day that I feel like creating. I received horrible news-a loved one whose life has ascended with the wind, young, full of potential...gone to gun violenceđź’”


As I scramble to figure out how I honor his memory, words to say to his amazing mother, how to console his loving sister, a song comes to mind...


"Sometimes you have to encourage yourself. Sometimes you have to speak victory during the test.

And no matter how you feel, speak a word and you will be healed. Speak over yourself. Encourage yourself."-Encourage Yourself by Donald Lawrence and the Tri City Singers


For now, I'll be okay with sitting in these feelings that I just can't describe.

I trust that I will be used as a vessel to be who I need to be for his family and so many others who have yet to process their feelings of loss and sadness.


What are some go- to songs you listen to when your heart is heavy?
