I started this project 5 years ago when I bought 4 old slate chalkboards at the Central Washington University surplus auction.  I accidentally dropped one of the boards when I was unloading it from my truck.  The slate broke into very interesting and unique shapes.  I kept the broken pieces for years with the intention of someday using them in an art project.  The idea for the broken piece chalkboard started to come together a few weeks ago, so piece by piece, I put it together.  I found myself reflecting on the fact that I too was a patchwork of hurt, mistakes, missed opportunity, pain, and sadness.  My brokenness felt beyond repair.  God accepted me in my brokenness and pieced me together to form a new creation .  A creation that is  rooted in the knowledge, love, joy, and forgiveness that Christ alone can offers.   I am very thankful for my relationship with Christ, and his willingness to love me right where I am.  He is not finished building me yet, and I look forward to the adventures to come.

1 Peter 4:10

10 Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.
