"Life is hard, at times taking more from us than we can give. At those times it’s our choice to be thankful, to choose joy that can change us. It’s often a very difficult choice and a ‘sacrifice of praise’ to do so, but ultimately that choice is all we can control and the posture we are called to. I pray my paintings are a reminder to choose joy daily. A reminder that for me is immensely necessary."
