This blog is a window seat peek into the things that bring me joy. I desire to encourage, educate and edify all those who stop by.

Scripture Challenge 2010: Word # 1 HOPE
Just like the song lyrics, my hope is truly built on Jesus blood and righteousness. Some Christians are not comfortable using the word hope because they are so afraid that people will take it to mean what the world has defined. Society's use of the word hope seems to be based on not knowing. However, with God, we know His character. More than a simple wish there is some assurance behind the Christian kind of hope. Together faith and hope gives us the assurance that God will give us just what we need. God is sovereign! Hebrews 11:1 says: Now faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen. To me that means that I own the deed to God's promises. God will always supply results according to his character. I choose to have Godly hope, for what is seemingly impossible for the world is possible with God. I expect the impossible! For me, the impossible IS my reality.
My name is Tina. I am a teacher, writer, dramatist, storyteller and crafter. Although, I studied computer science in college, I soon discovered that I was better at being creative than I was at being technical.
In 1997 I started the PARABLES Drama Ministry. Through the PARABLES I have been able to share the gospel of Jesus Christ through dramatic expression. I have had the opportunity to perform and direct in many venues; including street theater.
I like to cook, craft, sew and make jewelry. Hence, God is prompting me to include these interests as He is birthing PARABLES Productions and Events; an education company where we teach by using dramatic expression, stories and interactive instruction. Teaching creative subjects allows me to show others how to collaborate, communicate, create and exude confidence. In addition to theater related activities; there is now a venue to teach creative subjects like sewing, cooking and crafting. I host events where I simply teach lessons and skills that I have learned over the years; hence these events are called "Pass-it-on Parties." Now that's passion turned profession!
