a little about pamela

Pamela O'Connor 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 10 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.

I have been married for 23-1/2 years to my wonderful husband, Mike. I thank God for the miraculous works he has done in our marriage over the years. It’s only by His grace & mercy that we have made it this far and we can both honestly say that we are happier and more in love today than ever before. We have been blessed with three fabulous children as well! Our 19 year old son, Shaymus, is attending a local university. Our oldest daughter, Caitlyn, is 16 and a Junior in high school. Then we have our little unexpected blessing, Bevyn, who is 7 and in 2nd grade.

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 hubby 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 16 years…Close To My Heart, Longaberger, Origami Owl, and Xyngular.

a few of my favorite scriptures

Hebrews 11:1 KJV

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Psalm 138:8 ESV

The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me;
    your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever.
    Do not forsake the work of your hands. 

Romans 8:28 NIV

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
