WHAT IS BIBLICAL ART THERAPY?
Biblical Art Therapy is the practice of developing trust in God by artistically and creatively using the Bible to overcome crippling emotions that hinder a blessed life.
In this course, I will demonstrate how to practice Biblical Art Therapy to overcome fear and anxiety.
With Biblical truths explained, you can watch me create 7 different artworks in watercolor and pen and ink for a practical demonstration of the process.
Despite advances in science and technology, man has yet to subdue the destructive fires of fear raging within him. He never will, without God. The Bible is clear—without actively developing faith in Him, escape from the death grip of anxiety is impossible!
Creating art with the Lord's help, while tackling fear, enriches life making the journey fun!
You will grow as an artist, regardless of your current level of skill, by developing faith and creating unforgettable visual memories, which is a powerful part of the process.

God's promises are comprehensive for every challenge we may ever face in life. However, our struggle is to believe them!
God never fails. We do!
While I cannot guarantee anything in life, God does the opposite! He guarantees blessings and a supernatural peace, independent of our circumstances!
We can be living in the worst nightmare imaginable and yet be enveloped in a deep, inexplicable peace.
However, faith and patience go hand in hand. Jesus talked a lot about sowing and reaping, implying that TIME played a big factor in seeing visible changes in life, when we sowed His word in our hearts.
I have to often remind myself to press on when I'd rather quit, because the journey seems unending and victory distant! You'll have to do the same.
Having enjoyed enough victories, I am confident that I'm on the right track! I'm pointing you to Jesus. You cannot go astray by following Him.
You do not need many supplies—much can be accomplished with very few, but quality art supplies!

Gently Awakened: The Influence of Faith on Your Artistic Journey
Consider the Lilies: An Adult Coloring Devotional Journal
GENTLY AWAKENED REVIEW
Sara's love for life, for people and for God come through in her beautifully written book. She draws us into her story, into her life by painting images with her words. There is a place she draws from that is anchored and secure. From there she combines her colorful story with her convictions about creativity and faith. I found her writing to be refreshing, and her message challenges me to stretch out to new places in my own creative journey. As she progresses into revelation she brings a depth of wisdom that draws me to go back and read it again.
CONSIDER THE LILIES REVIEW
"Wow! I just got mine in the mail and just let me say... this is so much more than an adult coloring book! Sara includes a devotional study of Luke's passage, as well as prayers, poems and creative prompts for journaling! In addition, the designs to color are beautiful. I love how the designs highlight the beauty of the lilies. I cannot wait to jump in and starting coloring and journaling.
I highly recommend this as a Bible Study for a worship/creative arts ministry, your women's study group, or a group of creative friends. I would also recommend this if you have issues concentrating while studying your Bible, to help keep you focused and to give your hands something to do while you ponder and pray!"

THE POWER OF THE SEED REVIEW
"The handmade drawings in this devotional journal alone warrant a five star rating. They are so unlike the computer-generated images found in coloring books today: they are completely unique and extraordinarily beautiful in their composition."
I am a Christian artist who paints in watercolors, acrylics, oils, inks and mixed media. The Lord has blessed the work of my hands to be in numerous private and corporate collections around the world. As a sculptor, I've put in years studying figurative sculpture with live models, working in stoneware and terracotta. I now prefer to sculpt in colorful polymer clays. Together with other artists, I co-owned a gallery in Dallas for about a decade. I'm also an author, writer, and creator of hand-drawn devotional coloring books. Teaching Bible classes in my home church is another blessing that I enjoy. All the good in my life is because of Jesus. I'm more passionate about Him than writing, art, design or creativity. I enjoy expressing visual praise to God for a redeemed, beautiful life. I'd love to teach you to enjoy the same!
