Hi.

Welcome to Over the Brim: a life filled up and overflowing. I'm Shanda, a mama creatively living and loving in Nashville, TN, sharing bits and pieces along the way.  I love Jesus, truth and beauty, books, coffee, and being intentional with my family. I value vulnerability and togetherness and so, I write here and invite you in.

3rdRace.org: Creating with the Creator

My friends over at 3rdrace.org run an awesome community blog. If you haven't checked it out, you'll want to! They are currently doing an awesome series about spending time with the Lord in out-of-the-box ways. I had the privilege of joining in as a guest blogger and had a great time sharing a bit about how I spend time with the Lord through painting.

"I paint and I wipe off paint and I add more and I sit and stare and wonder… I decide to smooth out some rough spots because the Lord does that in me, slowly and patiently and in the proper time. I decide to leave some of those rough spots and raw brush strokes because they are evidence of me, and true to my real unfinished life. I think about how every artist leaves their mark. I think about Christ’s mark – everywhere."

Head over to 3rdRace.org to read my post and check out this series!
