The Response: Faith, Home, and Hospitality — Cheryl Well, this is odd. I’m at a loss for words. As I thought about and created this image from three multiple exposure photos (one of a tree and an upper section of my house, and two of the Last Supper plaque hanging next to my front door), […]


The Call: Faith on Display — Cheryl Kim Klassen’s Be Still 52 is the first online class I’ve ever taken. I can’t imagine that I’ll ever complete it. I think that she’s at about the halfway mark (of a 52-week course), but I’m on lesson 5 or 6. I have learned a thing or two […]

But that doesn’t mean I’m not curious. It’s just that my curiosity manifests itself in ways that are generally […]


The Call: Still Life with Chocolate — Cheryl What is essential to life? Looking at the question academically turns up some obvious, but mundane, answers: water, proteins, air, shelter, food. My list of essentials goes beyond the basics. The books were the first items I collected for this still life, as I can’t imagine life […]
