As a floral designer, The Cheerful Visit has originated from a recognition of the gifts of those in various fields and a desire to share how God is being made known through their creative endeavors. This podcast will introduce you to these individuals--exploring their journeys, discussing upcoming projects, and sharing the joys and struggles they experience living out their faith using the gifts God has given them.
My sincere prayer and hope is that you leave encouraged, spurred on to work for purposes beyond yourself, and willing to push boundaries in both circumstances and gifts. When we give God the reigns and act upon the gifts and opportunities that He gives us, the resulting beauty and excitement brings him glory and praise.
1 Peter 4:10-11 serves as the scripture behind The Cheerful Visit, "Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen."
I could not be more thrilled you have stopped by to listen to The Cheerful Visit! I hope this is a place where you are encouraged, energized and leave with a stronger sense of community within the gifts and vocation you find yourself in!
Aside from podcasting at The Cheerful Visit, I am the owner and designer of Pollen Events, a floral design studio based in Dallas, TX that provides design for weddings and celebrations. It is a joy to be a part of such exciting celebrations in the lives of others!
Some of my favorite things include: all things involving cheese, being with the people I love, Jimmy Fallon, long walks and dorky dancing, Domino Magazine, anything Jen Wilkin writes and laughing until my sides hurt.
