Welcome to Behold! I am so very happy you are visiting our website and are interested in our ministry.
I often thank God for the immense blessing Behold has been in my life. This ministry is a gift beyond words, and something that has surpassed anything I could have planned.
Behold is the result of being struck by beauty in my own life.
In 2013 to 2014, I entered religious life. It was an tremendous gift of experiencing the beauty of that vocation. During my time of discernment, I realized God was calling me back into the world.
When God first presented this call to me, I rejected it...I found so much of who I was in the fact that I felt called to give my life to Him in religious life. In my journey over the next few months, He began to show me more of the areas of where my heart clung to false identities in order to strive for love.
This experience was a real call from God… A call to see that I found so much of my value in what I did, versus the reality that I was a daughter of God.
I ended up deciding to leave religious discernment after much prayer, with deep love for my community and with God leading the way. In that trying time of my life, when I had nothing to cling to but God, the way I found Him was by praying with art . As I continued to draw closer to Him, and experience healing, I saw the need to invite others into it .
So, I decided to do a short 5 week program to pray with art with 15 other women in the winter of 2016.
During this program, I walked with my fellow sisters in Christ. Through art, we prayed together. We enjoyed fellowship. We discussed Mary's feminine genius and how we could live it. Most of all, we brought Christ to one another.
This program changed me and the women around me. I knew I couldn't keep it to myself. God was at work.
And God has led the way. I feel so blessed with how Jesus brought the story of His own life into mine. I truly feel as though Behold is the story of what we claim to believe- that the Resurrection does indeed come after the cross.
I want to welcome you to our Behold family. We would love to have you join us on this walk with Our Lord.
Please be assured of my prayers for you, and please pray for us and our ministry!
