*A note before you read this. After doing an audit of my blog in 2022, I have decided to leave content that speaks to the Christian I was at the time this was written. I no longer identify as Christian (and haven’t for a very long time.) I chose to leave these posts because it is who I was then and it is important to me to be honest and true with every iteration and evolution of self that I experience. I may decide to add comments to the end of posts like this as well
There are no words for the humbling this has placed upon my heart. I’m just in awe of God and how he’s moved you to generosity (for me?) for me… I pray that you are as blessed as I am at this moment. If you ordered a piece of art from me, I promise you that my love and prayers will be poured out over them like this.
Thank you all for making my soul sing. I can’t thank you enough.

I’ve never done anything like this before.
I’m going to take a leap of faith here–I’d LOVE to go to TheRelevant Conference again, but have absolutely no means of making that happen. I mentioned it yesterday and since then, in less than 24 hours, a ticket and a room have become available. (the conference sold out in ONE minute. Not kidding.) Which means I can go *IF* I can find a sponsor or multiple sponsors. Would you like to sponsor me or do you know a company that would pitch in?
Marketing Directors: currently, I have a Klout score of 71 and a Google Page Rank 3. I can give blog stats for marketing purposes. I’m willing to work out a sweet deal with sponsors. I would need a total of around $650 (conference ticket, airfare, hotel, and food) and am willing to enter into a long term agreement with the right company. Last year I attended thanks to Feld Entertainment.
Oh yeah, the conference is in a couple weeks. Oct 27-29th!
Companies, please contact me: MLPendergrass at gmail dot com
Individuals–even $5 would help!
I’m willing to sell art as sponsorship–For $25 I’ll create an 8×10 piece of art for you by Christmas. (normally $50) For you or a gift. You can choose a tree painting, a Visual Prayer, or one of my photos!
You can view samples of my artwork:
If 30 people each order a custom art piece then our goal is met!!
If 19 people each order a custom art piece then our goal is met!!
If 18 people each order a custom art piece then our goal is met!!
If 16 people each order a custom art piece then our goal is met!!
If 8 people each order a custom art piece then our goal is met!!
If 6 people each order a custom art piece then our goal is met!!
If 4 (4 people!!! ohmygosh!!) people each order a custom art piece then our goal is met!!
If 3 (3 people!!! SO close!!) people each order a custom art piece then our goal is met!!
2 MORE. wow.wow.wow.wow.
ONE more. (I don’t even have words. Just tears.)
YOU GUYS ARE AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you so so so much.

Wow, I can’t believe how fast God is pulling this together! Already from thirty to nineteen– God is amazing!
I was curious what time I posted this yesterday–1:30ish. NOT EVEN 24 hours later with the thirty to nineteen! (I believe, help me in my unbelief!!)
this is just amazing and my heart is SO full and SO overflowing.
SIX!!! =O <– that's my jaw dropping on the floor!
Paypal says you can’t accept any money right now. Please let me know if there is some other way to help you out.
The donate button is fixed now! Also, my paypal email is: [email protected] (I created my paypal before I had gmail if you can believe that!)
Yes, I want one. I have been wanting one since you did some for Brooke. How do I order. I am liking the one that is way toward the bottom of 2011 that says don’t lose heart…..and the one way up top…Imagine! Can’t wait to see you again because I know you will be there!
Oh Karen!! (((hugs))) I wanna hug you FOR REAL!! Thank you!!
Just push the donate button and for every $25 donation, you get a thank you piece of artwork! My heart is SO full right now!!
I saw the notice earlier that you needed 18 more people. Then I saw that you were only 4 away. I really felt the tug to get a painting.
