My name is Kari and I have been painting and crafting for many years.  I have named my creations "Gifts of Charis". Charis is derived from a Greek word meaning grace and kindness.  When a person gives another a gift, they are extending grace and kindness. 


I feel a great sense of peace and closeness to the Lord when I paint and craft.

1 Peter 4:10 says: As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace

I believe the ultimate gift of grace is given to us freely through salvation in accepting Jesus Christ as our own personal Lord and Savior. I pray you have accepted the Lord as your Savior!
