“This is one of my all-time personal photographs. It is a picture of my daughter in Alquézar, Spain. We were there on a trip in November, 1999. I originally took the picture in color, but it wasn’t right. I love this photo for its blend of the past, present, and future in a small town that is filled with history. It always seems to bring me peace.”

Pasadena trail

“God revealed himself to me while hiking in Pasadena with my husband and sweet dog yesterday. These precious flowers are signs of re-growth from fires. I pray I can show the beauty of God’s love in the small things done extraordinarily—like a simple trail that leads to the pretty little hellos from Him.”

Land and Water

land and water

“A tree is beautiful, but what’s more, it has a right to life; like water, the sun, and the stars, it is essential. Life on earth is inconceivable without trees. Forests create climate, climate influences people’s character, and so on and so forth. There can be neither civilization nor happiness if forests crash down under the axe, if the climate is harsh and severe, if people are also harsh and severe.”
