New Podcast with Jessica Eileen Drogosz -chatting about Sa Voix in Haiti

 

I’m excited to share my conversation with Jessica Eileen Drogosz! She is an artist and photographer and teacher and advocate for women in Haiti.  She has founded Sa Voix in Haiti which exists to help young women find their voice through the arts. You can find more information at savoix.com. It’s amazing what Sa Voix is doing to empower young women!

Jessie is also an amazing photographer and you can find her work at jessicaeileenphoto.com.

I loved hearing about how God has called her into this moment and how she is saying, “YES!” and learning to trust.  Jessie is a beautiful soul who I know will inspire and encourage you! Enjoy!

The Scripture she reads at the end is Proverbs 8: Wisdom’s Call.  

Chatting with Tasha Wahl – founder of The Butterfly Effect Be The Change

 

New podcast- I’m so excited to share this conversation with you!  Tasha Wahl is an artist, mother, wife, strong believer and an absolute delight!  She is definitely saying a Great Big YES to living with passion and purpose!

Tasha is the founder of The Butterfly Effect. You can find out all about it at www.butterflyeffectbethechange.com. She created it based on the Gandhi quote about being the change you wish to see in the world. It’s so exciting to see the movement she is creating! 

I love this conversation- we talk about art, family, parenting, faith, tithing, charity, the butterfly effect, Richard Rohr, everything!  I could have talked to her for hours – she is wise and so inspirational!

Now I’m looking for a wall for us to paint in Austin! Stay tuned…

Enjoy the podcast and join the movement by sponsoring a butterfly drop or becoming a butterfly artist! Doesn’t that sound amazing?!?

 

Here is some more information (taken from their website) about Tasha and her husband Erik.  Together they are asking, “Can art change the world?” (I say YES!!) 

As founders of the Wahl Foundation, Erik and Tasha Wahl — artists, entrepreneurs, visionaries, parents and neighbors — are committed to provoke positive change in order to create a better world. Together, they helm The Wahl Group, which challenges corporate America to shift business-as-usual thinking to a more dynamic paradigm, and provides resources to educational organizations so they can tap the innate creativity in their schools’ communities.

Tasha Wahl has served as the foundation’s executive director for more than a decade. In her role, she oversees foundation projects, masterminds events and directs strategies to help the foundation create significant, meaningful results. She was inspired by the generosity of her parents to create The Butterfly Effect Project, which sparks philanthropy movements from small actions.

Erik’s #1 best selling business book, UNTHINK, has been hailed as THE blueprint for leveraging creativity to achieve superior levels of performance. It also won 2013 Business Book of the year from CEO Reads. Erik’s distinct style makes his graffiti artwork a favorite among celebrities, and with it, he has raised millions of dollars for charity. http://www.theartofvision.com

 

 

 

 

 

 

Day 24: ART SUPPLIES!

image I’m so grateful for art supplies I could just scream and dance around and jump for joy!

I swear, I walk around Michael’s and I get giddy.  I start picturing all the cool things I’m going to make and all the ways I’m going to organize all my new art supplies.  I decide again for the millionth time to be a scrapbooker and then that never happens.  But I re-decide that every time I’m in Michaels.  Or Hobby Lobby.  Hobby Lobby is actually more dangerous for me.  I start buying lamps and signs and fabric and Christmas decorations and gift bags and cards.  OMG Hobby Lobby has the best cards! Seriously people.  They have cards by Max Lucado there.  I weep in the card isle at Hobby Lobby.  Truly.  I love that place.

Anyway, today I went to Michael’s with my daughter and we purchased some supplies to make cool artsy things for Thanksgiving.  I’m giddy.  I might post pictures if the things turn out to be picture worthy.  If not, oh well.

No time making art is wasted.

So grateful for artsy stuff. 🙂
