King of my Heart

Last year, around the beginning of Advent, I was asked to design the weekly wallpaper for Blessed is She. My wallpaper would "launch" on December 24, Christmas Eve. The image below is what I designed (with some serious help from the Holy Spirit). It's still available for free download on the Blessed is She site, if you'd like to grab your own copy. And if you continue reading, you'll see that I'm now taking pre-orders for 8x10 prints AND hardcover journals.

I was excited by the challenge of this project, and I took the nativity story to prayer before I began. When the illustration was finished, I knew I had received some divine help, and when the wallpaper went live, women responded quite strongly to it, and wanted to know more about the image. So, I want to tell you a little bit about what was going on in my life this Advent. It's been a season full of ups and downs: a lot of joy, and a lot of pain. And, well, I hope in some way this art and this experience will help your heart (pun intended) in 2018.
