The Soul of the City: a focus on the arts

Dallas has always had an artistic soul.  The culture and heritage of our city, like most great cities, owes a tremendous debt to the arts community.  Supporting local art something we care deeply about and we’d like to do everything we can to help the local arts community thrive.  Unfortunately, too often media attention is monopolized by corporate interests and tabloid gossip – but culture doesn’t come from a focus on celebrity breakups it comes from a focus on the arts.  Below, you’ll find some incredible artists that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Dallas, Texas – Sams Club Greenville Avenue By @michaelmcpheeters The mural that portrays iconic Dallas scenes while representing the Lower Greenville neighborhood. There are many well,known,Dallas hotspots like Reuinion and Granada Theatre ( my personal favorite). Many iconic Dallas art installations are represented in this mural (The Eye, The Travelling Man…). Lastly, a lonhorn, an oil dyke, a cowboy, and of course wind turbines. If you have ever gone to Marfa, El Paso, or Big Bend you know these. Go see this mural. You will not be disappointed. Give @michaelmcpheeters a follow too. #dallasmurals #dallastexas #austindot #ilovethiscity #makeartnotwar #dallaswalls #texasthings #documenttexas # #texasmusic #dallaswallstreet #texaswalls

Ever have those moments when you discover a new layer in your faith journey? Where you’re given a whole new perspective on something you thought you knew SO well! 🧐That happened to me today. 😱 I’ve been learning about faithfulness this week and how MY faith is UNRELATED to the capabilities of God or even the outcome of God’s will on my life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ From #TheArmorOfGodStudy: “Faith, does not control God. It doesn’t make God do something….when we exhibit faith it gives us access to what God has already intended to do for us”. Basically, I can have faith in whatever I want, but God is God. My goal should be more about having true faith in who He is, rather than having “bigger” faith for what I feel He can do in my life. 🙌🏾 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ God’s faithfulness is PERFECT! It never ever fails. Each time I’m asked to take a seat at a table in a room I don’t see myself deserving of, or asked to speak or present on topics I may feel unqualified to speak on, I will remember this. #FaithfulObedience That God is God….and allowing Him to work out His perfect faithfulness for me is a gift that aligns me to His will. This understanding gives me peace. It takes the reins of my life from my hands and puts them in their proper place. 🤲🏾 👈🏾 Those are God’s hands. LOL! 🤣🙏🏾🙌🏾 . . . . . #TheKGLifestyle #Entrepreneur #Blogger #LifestyleBlogger #LifestyleCurator #DreamLife #WhatIDidToday #Influencer #DallasBlogger #DallasInfluencer #FaithfullyFearlessChallenge

One day mommy had a baby in her tummy. And then I got a baby brother, And that baby brother is YOU! This is the story Sofia has been telling Remi for a few weeks now and while I know he doesn't understand what she is saying he lights up as much as she does every time and my heart feels like it could burst! Watching their relationship develop is absolutely beautiful. It isn't always perfect and there are already moments when I have to intervene but I pray they will continue to lean on each other well into adulthood. How have you cultivated a relationship with your siblings or among your children?? (Besides forcing them to be with each other because that's a given when they're living in the same house 😆🙃) #siblinggoals #growingupwithsiblings
