I am a believer in Christ, who loves taking the life lessons I have learned from scripture and history, and recording them in paint

Art Wasn't Valued in my Educational Career

I was an artist the day I could hold a pencil. As a child, I even sold enough dog portraits to pay for a horse when when my parents couldn't afford one. Years of formal schooling, however, taught me that art—and my heart—wasn't nearly as important as memorizing facts to pass a test; or as helpful as getting a degree if I wanted "success." So I ditched art, because that is what "smart" people do.

Setting My Own Goals for Learning Set Me Free

Unfortunately for me, all I got in return for my years of A's was a "practical" degree that still didn't qualify me for a job, plus 10 years of health complications as a direct result of my last stressful semester. I was left wondering: what was the goal of education really supposed to be? Could I find my own answers? Yes! The next several years became my laboratory. I was determined to reinvent education for myself.

Now I Know My Own Heart is the Best Guide

I decided to tackle the toughest book I could find (Isaiah), and the subject I hated most (history), and see what I could learn. Once I started learning with my heart, I fell in love with it. Now, I actually love academic technicalities, too, but only after my heart started asking the questions, instead of a test. I can't wait to share that curious spark with you as we learn together.

What to Expect from Me

No Preaching Here

In a world of so many competing ideas, criticism, and accusations, I am careful who I look to when I need guidance, especially religious guidance. I imagine you are careful, too. You can rest assured my system is not about preaching my own doctrine—it's about helping YOU find principles that will lead you to YOUR OWN answers. I intentionally stay as doctrinally-neutral as possible while showing you how.

Interfaith Respect and Unity

I have benefitted from many deep, uplifting religious discussions with—or literature by—members of a wide variety of Christian denominations, the Jewish perspective, and Eastern religions like Islam, Hinduism, and Bahai. Though I remain a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and am devoted to my Savior Jesus Christ, I feel indebted to people of all faiths who have greatly enriched my own. I am convinced that all religions contain truth, and it is my goal to not only focus on our common love of moral principles, but also learn from each others' strengths.

YouTube Stories

If you decide I'm someone whose experience you can trust, I suggest starting on my YouTube channel. Sometimes the best way to learn a new approach with difficult scripture is to watch someone else demonstrate what it looks like. Between homeschooling, painting, and personal study, I try to regularly post YouTube videos about things I'm learning, tell the stories of how they impacted my life, and sketch a new image to share what I learned. Insert your own experiences, and you'll be doing it, too, in no time at all.


I'm a big believer in being intentional about the images I choose to put around me. Chosen carefully, images can bring not only 1,000 words, but also feelings and inspiration that can't adequately be expressed in words. The paintings I created of Isaiah's Imagery and My Place in HIStory are not just mere decoration—they are intended to serve as a visual trigger for the emotional and spiritual connection to the many truths we find in scripture and history.
