I love Instagram as a creative space. Apart from my @stickelberry account I have another that I’ve used for a while to just be creative — with photography, interior design, graphic design, musics, scripture.. all the things I love.
It has been evolving for a while now to be less about me and more about Him — the reason I create in the first place. It has a new look, a new name and a refreshed purpose.
If you like to be inspired by scripture, photography, worship and Christian music, and graphic design with a faithful flare, come follow and say hi every now and then @scriptedlight
With two boys in this house, there is no shortage of superhero action. I was so excited when I discovered the BibleForce: The First Heroes Bible a while ago because it REALLY spoke to my boys… the Bible in comic book form? Come on. Major winner!
So, when given the opportunity to check out the new companion book, BibleForce Devotional: The First Heroes Devotional, I jumped at the chance and surprised the boys for an impromptu superhero devotional session — which has since turned into a daily routine since we received our copy. So yes, we have another winner!
If you’re a comic book fan, you’re going to love this devotional — it speaks to the Geek in me. The illustrations are just so colorful and exciting, you can see how kids would absolutely love it.
What’s even better is the fact that it ties directly to it’s counterpart version of the Bible. We can read our devotional and then turn to the story in the Bible that is featured. I love the lessons and the Hero training sections – such wonderful wisdom for my boys to read and learn!

A few years ago, I got to listen to this amazing speaker at my MOPS group one morning, who likened marriage to cake. Now, if you know me well, you KNOW I have a sweet tooth, so any mention of cake and I’m all ears…
The short version of the talk: How well you follow the recipe for a cake determines how your cake is going to turn out, and your marriage is the same! It’s only going to be as good as what you put in to it. I loved the visual impact of this, because she even brought two cakes — one gorgeous, yummy chocolate cake, and one that looked like a pile of lumpy goo. Everyone could relate to this concept (hello, we’ve all messed up a recipe before… oh, and it’s CAKE), and she blessed us with many tips and ideas from a Biblical perspective that we could use to improve our marriages.
Fast-forward to early this year, when a great friend of mine called and put me and that same speaker in touch to format and publish a book for that very same talk! I can’t tell you how thrilled and just honored I was to be given the opportunity to help get this amazing message from Michelle Sullivan out into the world.
As I started to dive in to formatting, of course I read the book as I worked. My eyes were opened and my heart melted at Michelle’s story, how she was inspired and CALLED to write the book, and even more, I could see how I have failed to follow the recipe for my own marriage.
What a blessing this book is — it has spoken directly to me and my marriage, and I know it will speak to yours, too. It is full of so much wisdom, references to scripture, insights on how men THINK, ways to rekindle what brought you together with your husband in the first place… we are talking some REAL content here, topics that you might blush about, but that we ALL need to read.
And as a bonus, you’ll see some of my photos of chocolate cake and even a recipe for Michelle’s famous Mud Pie at the end! (did I mention CAKE?)
Don’t hesitate, get yours today and start reading the recipe every woman needs to get their hands on. God is doing some amazing work through this gifted soul, and is going to bless so many women and their husbands through her work.
When you witness the work of the Lord right in front of you… When you’re eyes see and your ears hear and your heart feels His presence.. that’s a #godstop and the closer I get to Him, the more often they happen. I’ve been mulling over something the Lord put on my heart recently, but ignoring it because of my selfish ways.. and today the Lord called me on the phone (via a friend he has used in the past to speak to me) and just made it crystal clear what I was supposed to do. He’s good like that. Any reservations or fears I was having, POOF! Gone. Thank you, Jesus.
It’s a busy season for me – wife, mom of two little guys, two dogs, MOPS-ing and Womens-ing at church. That’s a full heart and plate for me and it’s keeping me plenty busy, so for now I’m just going to push the pause button ⏸ on Stickelberry.
I have so many ideas for what it could be and where I could take it, and I look forward to making that a reality, but for right now it will be shelved so I can let the Lord guide me and focus on what is right in front of me. I won’t be taking on any new graphic or web design projects at this time. The online shops will remain open but custom designs will not be available.
Thank you for your support and love! I’ll still be here, posting art and things when I’m inspired to create and share. God Bless ❤️
