Peggy is a gifted artist and woman of faith from the Philippines
Who has blessed me for many years through her blog!
Her goal, as she shares her art, is to
Sow seeds of faith, hope, and creativity around the world.
Today’s project is a beautiful example of the faith art
She is creating in her 2012 Prayer Journal.
I encourage you to visit Peggy and give her some blog hugs!
Erin Ledbetter at Chronic Christian Crafter

I encourage you to visit both bloggers
