GODSPEAKS was born through my relationship with Jesus. From my photography along with the Creative Communications gift, God has spoken to me and to others as they experience His Spirit with me. I give Him the glory and thanks for using my talent. His Spirit moves through me, through my talent to touch lives. Photography is not just taking pictures, but capturing the perfect timing in the emotions of what God wants to convey. Whether it is the happiness of love, the innocence of a child, the working of the Spirit on each individual, photography captures it all. When we take time to look at art in a way in which God see it, He speaks. Once this revelation hits us, emotions burst forth and agape is born!
God speaks to all of us in different ways. Looking out across our world we see His majestic hand in His creation. Looking at people, we see Him in their eyes, their hands and where they go. There is good in all of His work! He speaks through us to others. He is the wind that blows and tousles your hair and kisses your face. He is the dog, the loyal friend who wants to sit in your lap. He is in the hand of lovers has they embrace as if nothing will stand in the way of their true love. You see, God is all around us. He never, ever leaves us. He is constantly speaking, maybe in ways you have never thought of, just listen.
This book is about Africa Children. Within it’s pages are beautiful children from Africa along with statistics of survival. My goal is to increase the awareness of orphans and to raise funds for an orphanage there. While attending a school for missions, my sons, Lyle and Bryson photographed many children. What they encountered was a world of lost hope, poverty and orphaned children needing love and care. You can order and view the first few pictures by clicking.

As I was going through over 1000 pictures to decide which ones I wanted to use, I came across a shepherd sitting among the sheep with his head down. I took the picture through the window while traveling on a bus. We were driving so fast I never noticed the man. It wasn’t till I pulled the picture close when I realized what I had captured. It is awesome how God allowed me to capture such a serene moment in one of His children in their daily task. I wondered if he knew Jesus, a Jew in the middle of Israel. There were children playing nearby which made me think how children all over the world has a carefree spirit of not thinking of tomorrow. Scriptures flowed through my head with each picture. I will never forget this experience and I want to share it with all.
