Woo Hoo!!!!

See the Christmas present I chose for myself? Liz Lemon Swindle’s The Worth of a Soul. I know where I am putting it already too-- on the hall wall near the dining room. But I couldn't wait to share it here, so it's still on the floor. Isn’t it beautiful?

My mom and I had the opportunity to go to Women’s Conference in August and attend a couple of classes by Kathy Headlee, the founder of Mothers Without Borders. (I practically cried through the whole class both times as she talked about the orphans in Africa and so many personal experiences.) She spoke about how she invited Liz Lemon Swindle to Africa to paint Christ with orphaned children there. The model for Jesus is Kathy’s husband, who wasn’t a member of the church at the time. Kathy had a copy of this painting in the class and I was just drawn to it as she spoke, even after she went on to other topics. If you’d like to read a little about the artist’s experience or about little Kennedy in the painting, here’s a link.

I just love it and am so excited to have it in our home!

  1. That is a beautiful paintnig. I have seen it before but when you were talking about it, I saw a similar painting, but it wasn't as good. My memory isn't good enough, I guess. Anyway, it is beautiful and I'm glad you were able to get it.
