Hi there! I’m Pamela, creator of reflectionsofmyartandsoul.com. It is here that I share my many passions in life that include my faith, family, home life, health & wellness journey, love of creating…to name a few. It is my desire to find the joy in creating a beautiful life…one that encompasses my many passions as a whole…the true reflections of my art & soul.
I’ve been a Christian for the past 12 years and continue to grow and struggle along the way. I love my Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ, and it’s my heart’s desire to be a woman after God’s own heart! He has proven over & over that He is always by my side, even when I don’t feel Him near…I have learned that He is usually testing me at those times and it ultimately helps my faith in Him grow deeper & stronger.
Very recently I have found myself single after 24 years of marriage. To say this time in my life has been difficult is an understatement as I am sure many of you know. I am having to learn for the first time how to take care of my self and my children on my own for the most part. I have a 20 year old son, Shaymus, who is attending a local university. My oldest daughter, Caitlyn, is 17 and will be a Senior in high school in the Fall. Then I have my little unexpected blessing, Bevyn, who is almost 8 and going into 3rd grade in the Fall.
random facts about me
I would create all day if I didn’t get distracted so easily by my love of social media! I love creating & learning new things just so I can teach & share with others, but I occasionally try to do too much, then I get overwhelmed and I begin to shut down physically and emotionally. One of my goals is to learn that I can’t do it all and to learn how to make the best choices with my time.
I am a born & raised Texas girl…only left for 4 years when my husband drug me kicking & screaming to New Mexico a month after we got married in 1991! I demanded that we return to Texas when our son was born in 1995…LOL!
A few other random facts…I grew up playing lots of sports…and none of my kids do! I love to wear black, but I love creating with all colors. I’ve been in several direct sales companies over the past 17 years…Close To My Heart, Longaberger, Origami Owl, and Xyngular.
