This is a space for women to feel a connection with their higher power. From my experience, women have an easier time finding and relating to the spiritual life dimension. I am often frustrated by the people who are reluctant to explore the spiritual and I hope to offer a safe place of discovery.

 
Souls: The Life Spark from the Divine

Souls:

This quilt is my attempt to visually represent the spark of life that can only be explained by the belief in a universal connection. The soul is a part of the divine and so it is a manifestation of God in each of us. We are the source of divine activity on earth. The soul gives the body its life-force; that vital element which distinguishes each physically and dictates how each will participate in reality.

The human purpose in life is to create perfection. God is perfection. One human, alone, by definition, cannot create perfection. It is something we must agree to pursue together. When we have completed our task we will gather in the world to come. The quilt is in seven pieces, the number that represents perfection. Each ribbon on the quilt says, "I join in our task to create world perfection."

This quilt is a representation of the mothers of the twelve tribes of Israel. Jacob had twelve sons and at least one daughter born from four wives. The purpose of prayer is communication with Other. We can praise, ask, complain, thank, and petition. Prayer helps us clarify our choices and actions and brings ideas into focus. Prayer is spiritual nourishment.
