  1. From Denver, CO: Kelly I am so blessed to read of what you're doing with creative color. Just last week when a young Iliff Theology student was meeting with me, I asked him if he might like to "art" what he was talking about. I got up and gave him an art tablet and colored pencils--he said it was so transforming for him. You may share the story. Blessings,

  2. Kelly, this sounds so wonderful. And creative. A mighty small seed of beautiful, right there.
