Light and Zest is a collection of handcrafted writings and illustrations on Christian Mindfulness and Creativity.
Jessie is a small woman in a large world making her tiny way. She is a trained painter, self-taught graphic/website designer serving clients for 10+ years. She plays delightful and often imperfect roles, such as: wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, Christian, American who has lived overseas, white woman, and most specifically: middle aged human.
She likes to think and create around the process of being a spiritual being in a human world. Most of her work is about the interior life of thought, feeling, and how God can interplay with us on that level if we let Him. She wonders how our lives would be different if we applied the truths of Scripture in small practical steps. She attempts to do this herself, knowing she could never do it perfectly, but that should never stop her from trying.
She is not an expert at anything.
She has come to the same conclusion time-and-time again: clarifying who she is and what she thinks on paper is challenging yet also fulfilling. Sharing it is scary, yet somehow a sacred act of being human. She continues to enjoy experimentation in art and writing while making her tiny way.
Light and Zest will in no way, ever, sell your email address or contact information.
