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.
Ain't I a Woman

RAK for neighborhood kids
I made a bunch of these dogs for the kids in my neighborhood. I used brown and tan cardstock. Under the ear it says "Have a nice day!" with a smiley face sticker. There is a tic-tac-toe game under the other ear. The inside is filled with silly bands. The back has a little blurb about sharing and giving. The children have been doing really good about helping the neighbors with little things like putting away trash cans, picking up paper etc. They have a lot to learn about community and doing the right thing just because and not only when they are prompted by someone else. I just want to keep them encouraged.
The back says:
SHARE and GIVE
No matter what you have you can always share it
The heart that you have when you give to others
Is like the heart that God has when He gives to you
Only His heart is BIGGER!
When you give something, do not expect anything in return
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!
