The Reasons Behind My WHY | The Inspirational Mounts

Sights and sounds inspiring hope is what I’m all about!

I strive to inspire hope through my life, photography and music.

 

Who Am I?

First and foremost I am a follower of Jesus. then I am a nature photographer with photographs from all over the world and Australia. What sets me apart is that I’m also a Graphic designer so I’m able to combine custom text or words inspired by the Bible with my photography to create, photo cards, inspirational mounts and canvases.

I also am a singer-songwriter-guitarist who writes songs to bring hope to the broken and I’ve released an Ep called Mosaic Heartbrokenness can be made beautiful.

 

God’s calling in 2004

In 2004 I felt God called me to create inspirational bookmarks but at that time, I didn’t have the photos nor the confidence in my own ability to do so.

 

Accident in 2007

In 2007, I was hit by a car while walking on the curb. I was out walking outside my home and I was hit on my right lower back by a wing mirror that was broken off on impact as the car was going too fast. That trauma triggered the Fibromyalgia.

 

What is Fibromyalgia?

What is Fibromyalgia some might ask? It is a chronic condition that causes pain in the muscles and bones.

 

Imagine when you have a cold; your head is foggy, your body and joints ache. No matter how much you sleep, you are tired all the time. You have no motivation to do anything cos the fatigue confounds everything! and that is only some of the symptoms.

 

Where I get my strength from?

Because of the joy of the Lord, you’ll never know I’m always in pain unless I tell you.

 

What causes the depression and anxiety?

For the past 11 years, I’ve suffered with Fibromyalgia. With the constant pain, came the depression. With the fibro fog came the anxiety.

 

So I know what it feels like to be anxious and suicidal. But I refuse to let it define me.

 

Romans 8:28 says And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

 

My purpose

I choose to sow the pain, anxiety, depression, disappointments and rejection into God.

 

It’s become my purpose for living; using my photography of God’s beautiful creations and His all-powerful words to encourage and inspire others to renew their minds with His words! 🙂

 

With His help, we can be overcomers. We can do all things through Him who gives us strength.

In 2015 I decided to take the risk to submit my photographs to the Perth royal show not expecting anything to happen. But to my surprise 2 of my photographs were one of the finalists.

Now in 2018, I present to you my Inspirational Mounts.  The mounts have been inspired by a sermon or bible verses which come to mind when I look at the photo.

 

Help renew minds

To help you to renew your mind with God’s all-powerful words! I present to you the feelings range of my Inspirational Mounts.

They have been designed with specific bible verses to help combat negative feelings such as anxiety, stress and depression to name a few.

 

What to do with the Mounts?

You can place it on your bedside table, stick on your dresser, on your fridge, framed up in your study, up on the wall in your hallway.

 

Or give it as a gift to encourage a friend going through a difficult time when you don’t know what to say. These mounts are like a special card that last as they are also a work of art.

 

Thank you for the opportunity to share My story and I hope it inspires others in difficult times.
