throughout my life i was taught to separate media into two categories: the “imaginary” and “truth”. but what if it’s not that simple? what if there is truth hidden in films and fictional novels? what if there are lies hidden in “the news”? what if all this time i should have been discerning carefully between all the media i am inviting into my thoughts and life journey? what if, like an art exhibit, it’s all curated? should i be carefully curating a life of my own and what does that look like? does it take work? or should i simply allow others to curate my life, thoughts and views along my journey?

i also share about a recent “asherah” or heavenly mother commission: the process, the design, & the symbols included. it’s such a special experience creating alongside collectors, my heavenly parents, and savior. i’ll also share how my collector is including the piece in her holiday traditions -- inviting all to make new connections and revisit sweet things they’ve learned from their heavenly parents & savior. hooray for the holidays and this cozy season!
