October Breast Cancer awareness

Today starts the beginning of  my

Proverbs 31:25 Campaign” 


October is the designated month and time to honor  breast cancer survivors. It is the month to remember those who have lost their battle with Breast Cancer. It is the month to support the progress being made to defeat breast cancer.

In keeping with this theme,  I was thinking of a good way to get involved. This verse came to my mind as  I picked up  my pen and paper to start putting down my thoughts.  Proverbs 31: 25  “She is clothed in strength and dignity and laughs with out fear of the future.”  With the name of my campaign figured  out, I got up with excitement as this visual popped in my mind.   I began to sketch my vision on canvas and I wanted to let you know that you have an opportunity to help me finish.

If you know a breast cancer survivor, simply write down her  name on my instagram  or facebook page  or comment here on the blog.  If you have a friend or family member that you have lost with breast cancer, write down her name. If you know of someone living with breast cancer right now or is going through treatment, write down her name.  As names are gathered, each one will be prayed for and then added to the Proverbs 31:25 painting.  Once all of the names have been collected and the painting is finished at the end of the month, that only gives us 24 days since I am late starting, I will share it once more. At that point it will be available to purchase through an online auction with the money raised going to benefit the breast cancer fight.

Message me with any questions you have. My desire is that this  painting process will inspire, bring HOPE and encouragement to those who are starting this journey.

Jeremiah 29: 11 “ For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

In the painting, I have lots of faces in the background that will be faded as it is near completion but still seen. They represent the 3.5 million breast cancer survivors in the US, including women still being treated as well as those who have completed treatment. They also represent the memory of  the 41,400 who have lost their battle against this disease. this year.  The girl out front is representing the nearly 266,120 new cases of breast cancer that will be diagnosed  in the US during 2018.


The beginning, from thought to canvas


Charcoal pencils are messy! Next I will go over it with white gesso to blend in the lines and then highlights for the girl out front to make her stand out.

Progress, waiting for names to be added

Look us up on facebook  and instagram and add the names of those special ladies.  Lets fill the painting with names of brave women who have a connection with breast cancer.  Tag a friend, to let them know they are being prayed for and will be a part of the bigger picture here that we are creating together.

It is a privilege to be able to be a very small part of  bringing  awareness to Breast Cancer this month, to honor ladies and also to remember ladies who have fought a good fight. This is for them all.

Watch for PINK to be introduced soon!
