Lisa, asked me to join ABL two years ago, knowing that I am not a writer she encouraged me and felt I had something to give. She is brave and trusting, LOL. Hope that you will find encouragement and God’s love in my posts!
I am a Decorative Artist with my own business, Creative Finishes, LLC (www.creativefinishesbyheidi) above photo shows my usual work environment 😅; I work contingent on weekends as a C.T. Technologist; just started an etsy shop, Finishes by Heidi; starting to film a show “The Suburban Woman” with a local T.V. Station (not sure where God is taking that, but I am walking through that door); I teach furniture and decorative wall finish painting for TextureLine and potentially starting the same thing with another company, Metropolis; I sing on the Worship team at my church and currently working with The Alabaster Gift, where we are preparing to open a drop-in center for sex and labor trafficked women in Macomb County MI. I don’t have any writing accolades, but hope to write a book about my testimony someday…..
My greatest joys and accomplishments are my love for Jesus #1; my husband and best friend of 29 yrs, and my two children, daughter, age 25 and son, age 19 (Both love Jesus, praise God!). I am an artist/creative to my core: gardening; cooking; baking; entertaining; hospitality; painting with mixed media; crafting of all sorts; and backyard chicken farming all help to scratch my creative itch! Sharing my gifts and talents is paramount, as I know that it all belongs to God and bringing HIM glory.
Our daughter is getting married this year, currently working on the decor and centerpieces for a shabby chic Barn wedding. Life is a tad crazy, but with God at the center ALL things are possible!
