“Color of Praise”

Renae’s painting reflected the loud colors of praise. The Sneaky Spirit flowed through her brushes and spray cans and paper cuttings! It was a “Get Loud” painting for Jesus! Get up close to see what was going on in this Spirit-led painting! “Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable.” Quote from Banksy.
Time to get on our knees and serve our King!
-her mother Pat Jacobs

“Eden’s Dawn Light”

This painting represents the miracle that each dawn brings us. A new day to praise God and share the light. A gift from God to experience another day in his glorious creation. The tree of life represents the wisdom of Gods word and the fruit it will produce from reading and obeying. God created boundaries so that we could live our life to the fullest and experience all of Gods glory. When we give into sin we experience a psychological death. But the good news is everyday we can turn back around to God, repent and ask for forgiveness. Gods love is unconditional so he will forgive us and we will have eternal life.


Human trafficking is an incredibly real evil that exists everywhere in this world. In 2020, 10,583 situations of human trafficking were reported to the U.S. National Human Trafficking Hotline involving 16,658 individual victims. The Lutheran Church of Hope hosted a conference February 5, 2021 called “Hope Against Trafficking” to help raise awareness. I was invited to paint live for the event as the speakers revealed information about this global epidemic.


Happy 1 year anniversary to Hope + Elim! Completely overwhelmed in the most incredible way possible from the weekend events. Hearing the speakers Saturday night and then the two services on Sunday moved every ounce of my being deep inside. Absolutely humbled and honored to paint live for the 11am service. 62 years ago Dr. Martin Luther King stood on this same stage, the only time he visited Iowa and preached about a beloved community.

“Spirits Rise”

Today is the 15 year Heaven anniversary for my brother Eric Jacobs. He worked at Two Rivers Marketing in Des Moines, IA. He was a father of four boys with one on the way when he passed.
