Kiriban Award

The white dove is commonly known today as a symbol of peace and purity, but it was also used several times in the Bible. It was the bird Noah sent out of the ark that returned with an olive branch (Genesis 8:6-12), Jonah's name in the original Hebrew means 'dove', Jews who could not afford to provide a lamb for sacrifice could instead use two doves (Leviticus 1:14; 14:30; Luke 2:24), and the Holy Spirit Himself descended from heaven during Jesus' baptism in the form of a dove (Matthew 3:16).
Fun fact: doves don't have gallbladders.

13 Things About Me

1. I have been a Christian since the age of nine.
2. I love chocolate and eat it every day.
3. I wish I could make a living just selling my paintings. But I can't, so I am a graphic designer.
4. I love blue, and I love things that are blue like the sky, the ocean, blue eyes, etc.
5. The way I laugh changes depending on who I am around. I naturally tend to laugh like the people I hang out with.
6. I love working in my vegetable garden. My plants are like my pets. Sometimes I talk to them, even though I know they can't hear me. At least, I think so... ;p
7. I played the clarinet for 7 years, and I was really good at it. I was "first chair" most of the time, and gave lessons. Then I stopped playing and now I don't know if I can anymore.
8. I used to speak Spanish. But I stopped using it, so I forgot how.
9. I love making visually attractive things with my hands. Drawing, painting, decorating food, decorating my house, anything that is visually creative.
10. I'm mostly a self-taught artist. I've taken a few art classes, but mostly I just learn through practice and experimenting. And youtube videos.
11. I come from a broken family. That is why I determined in my heart that I would not make the same mistake my parents did. I've been married 7 years to the love of my life and we have the happiest marriage of anyone I know. God gets the credit for that! :aww:
12. I love Jesus as much as I can and as best as I know how. The goal of my life is to make Him smile.
13. When I paint I prefer to paint on 1/4" birch wood panels. I can't stand painting on canvas.


My Answers:

1. Are you a Christian? (It's okay if you'd rather not answer)
Yes! :D My relationship with Jesus is the most important thing in my life.

2. What kind of video games do you like, if any?
I don't play video games. Sometimes I watch my husband play Halo, does that count?

3. Favorite kind of music?
Dubstep and Chillstep. I used to love listening to Christian music, but I'm bored with most of it because I think it lacks creativity and skill. I listen to Dubstep and Chillstep because I like the beat but there aren't usually lyrics. I can't stand songs with trashy lyrics. I love listening to Dubstep when I'm designing. :D

4. Fantasy or reality?
I prefer reality.

5. Do you like cats? ^(|)w(|)^
Yes, but I don't want to own one. I enjoy other people's cats.

6. How often do you spend time online?
Several hours every day. I spend my lunch break online, and part of my design job requires me to be online.

7. Do you consider yourself a leader or a supporter?
Supporter. I can be a leader if I have to. But I prefer to support others.

8. Do you have plans for 4th of July?
Already passed! Sorry I did this so late! I can see fireworks from my house, so my husband and I just sat in the front yard and watched fireworks. I think we might have grilled some steak for dinner that night. Just a quite evening at home with the man I love. 

9. Do you like manga and/or anime?
I enjoy looking at the art on DeviantArt. I don't watch any shows though.

10. What books would you suggest?
The Bible. ;p lol! I could suggest lots of books depending on what you are interested in. One of my favorite books of all time is "Phantastes a Faerie Romance" by George MacDonald. It's a total fantasy book, but it parallels the Christian life and is a captivating read. Great things to ponder.

11. Would you be okay with the world ending soon?
Yes and no. I want to be with Jesus. But I want more people to be saved and be with Jesus too.

12. Favorite food(s)?
Chocolate. Ribeye steak. Raw vegetables. I love Asian food, especially Thai. And sushi! That is a special treat we eat once a month. Yum! :chew:

13. Do you like getting tagged? 8D
Yes, but I've been tagged twice recently so I need a break. :)

A Letter From the People of the Cross




Vision: We want to tell the world of the great and mighty things of the Lord through media



As the world responds to the Islamic State with hatred and vengeance, there is one group that is responding differently. They are not allies with ISIS but their enemies. And they have been slain by the thousands in the hands of ISIS. ISIS calls them The Nation of the Cross - The ones they have killed are bringing a message of forgiveness and hope. Declaring a love that they do not know - A love that reconciles even the worst of us and can make enemies into brothers.

We worked with several Arab Christians and Middle East Refugees to get their feedback. Also had it translated by an Arab Christian from Egypt.

Shot on a GoPro Hero 4 Black in 4k with a DJI Phantom 2. And a Panasonic GH4 with Zeiss 35mm lenses.Shot around the Big Sur region in CA.

Music is 'Rise' from The Music Bed.
