Mom's favorite Bible verse

Hello everyone, I'm Patty sister #8 and Thursday's blogger. I think I echo all of my sisters sentiments when I say I'm a bit freaked out by this whole blogging thing. But when you don't have a brick and mortar store you have to come up with creative ways to share a bit of yourself and get to know your customers. Me and the kids. (My husband was taking the picture.)

I'm tied with Laurie and Sue in the kid department. (Although Laurie and I did it more efficiently with each of us having a set of twins.) My husband David and I have six kids, 3 boys and 3 girls. They range in age from 14 - 3. The first 4 were born within the span of 3 years and 1 month, to the day. My oldest Elijah was 16 months old when we were surprised with twins, Johanna and Coleman.The twins were 17 months when we welcomed little Zoe. Almost 6 years went by before Maximilian was born. (yep, he was named after St. Maximilian Kolbe) And our last daughter Ellie was born 2 years later.

I am an illustrator and graphic designer (not a writer!) so I thought that I would use a lot of my Thursday posts to share some of my artwork with you. I have created several images based on bible verses, saints quotes and other inspirational Christian authors that I plan on sharing in the coming months.

I created the image below to remind  me of my mom’s favorite verse, Romans 8:28. In fact we thought of naming our company 8:28 in honor of her. Romans8-28
