FeathersiTunes2-300

In this episode, I chat with Michelle Krieg.

Michelle Krieg is a trained primary school teacher and art therapist from South Australia. She has been teaching over the course of 20 years and in 2010 decided to follow her God-given passion to study art therapy. After completing her study, Michelle started working as an art therapist with people who are socially marginalised due to mental illness. Her clients include elderly people who suffer from social isolation, people who are homeless and the intellectually disabled. She also runs a small private art therapy practice called Artfelt Ventures and still teaches in schools when she can. Michelle is married to James, who works full time in ministry to university students and they have 3 children aged 20, 17 and 14.

Scripture

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

Trust in the Lord and do good;
    dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
Take delight in the Lord,
    and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Commit your way to the Lord;
    trust in him and he will do this:
 He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn,
    your vindication like the noonday sun. Psalm 37:3-6

I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name. Revelation 3:8-10

Then your light will break forth like the dawn,
    and your healing will quickly appear;
then your righteousness will go before you,
    and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard. Isaiah 58:8

Let’s Catch Up and an Intro to Fifteen Verses for 2015 [Vlog]

Guys, I’ve missed writing regularly here so much! I really hope you’ve been enjoying the podcasts in the time since. God has been doing a very good work in me these past few months and I wanted to catch you all up. In this video, I share why I quit writing for a few months, what I’ve been doing, and where I see things headed in the future. I hope you take a few minutes to catch up.

Let me just take a minute to encourage you just to take a few minutes to open your Bibles today and see what God might have in store for you.  Here’s Isaiah 121:-6 I read on the video:

In that day you will say:

“I will praise you, Lord.
    Although you were angry with me,
your anger has turned away
    and you have comforted me.
Surely God is my salvation;
    I will trust and not be afraid.
The Lord, the Lord himself, is my strength and my defense[a];
    he has become my salvation.”
With joy you will draw water
    from the wells of salvation.

In that day you will say:

“Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name;
    make known among the nations what he has done,
    and proclaim that his name is exalted.
Sing to the Lord, for he has done glorious things;
    let this be known to all the world.
Shout aloud and sing for joy, people of Zion,
    for great is the Holy One of Israel among you.”
