Faith means many things to many people. You hear things like, "If you only had enough faith..." But faith isn't about me... it is about my Lord and Savior. I have nothing and I can do nothing good apart from Him. Faith is simply understanding how deeply the Almighty Creator of the universe loves me and resting in that.

The Lord Himself commissioned this beautiful walnut carving to celebrate the life of a wonderful woman of God in the Philippines. "Use your very best wood and make it as perfect as you can." With 1.5" gold outset letters, a roman ogee edge and colorful air-dried walnut, it was a very special project.
As I carved it, I pondered the truth of the scripture that "All things work together for good to them that love God." I thought back over my 40 years of following the Lord. Was this true in my life? Yes - It was! Though I have often been a sorry servant, He has always been a gracious Master. Though there have been many sorrows and disappointments, He has always been there with me and He has used all those "bad" things to shape me into the man that I am today. Seeing it from that perspective makes me want to run after Him with all my heart, holding nothing back!

Grace - It's not a license to sin - It is the power to stand against all the powers of Hell knowing that NOTHING... including our own willful stupidity... can separate us from God's Love. When we see how much God really loves us and the incredible price He was willing to pay so we could be redeemed, we are overwhelmed and the cry of our hearts is to follow, love, honor and obey Him.
This carving is in African mahogany which has beautiful golden highlights and an interesting grain. It would look great sitting on a dresser, mantle or desk.

One morning during worship, a question arose in my heart, "What one thing would I say to my grandson if I could never see him again?" A thousand things flooded my mind but one thing stood above them all... "Dare to be all that God calls you to be!" If he did that one thing, nothing else would matter. I created this carving for him and - maybe - he can give it to his grandson someday. This is a large and highly detailed carving with 1.5" silver letters on a metallic blue crystal background.

Our culture demands that truth is relative and there are many ways to God. But in John 14:6 Jesus said, "I am THE way, THE truth and THE life..." He is not "A" way, He is "THE" way. But also notice that He didn't say that He was teaching "THE" way and truth. He said that He Himself was the the way and the truth..." We don't accept and follow His teaching... we accept and follow HIM. And that - and that alone - is LIFE.

I was offered the opportunity to donate a sign for a youth camp. I was delighted to do it because thousands of kids would see it every year. But what should I carve that would reach their hearts? As I pondered the question, the Lord gave me two things. First, If you could say one thing to a child (or an adult for that matter) what would it be? He then asked me what I would encourage them to pray for themselves. These two signs were the answer.

Scripture tells us that "The Joy of the Lord is our strength." This is true even when we are facing the consequences of our own sin. He will forgive us and He even uses the ugliness of our sin in His incredible plan of redemption for both us and for others.

This is a big and bold carving with a simple message "Fear Not!" Why should we not be afraid? As Psalm 91:11 says, "God shall give His angels charge over thee." Angels are not the wimpy, efeminate things we usually see in art. When people see real angels they fall flat on their face in terror!
