Sometimes the inspiration behind a piece of art is as important
as the art itself. Madison Atwood is a mentally and physically disabled girl who
lives in Brentwood, Tennessee. For Christmas 2006, when Madison was 11 years old,
her mom decided that Madison would paint a picture of a heart as a gift for her
dad. An artist friend, Holly, outlined a heart in pencil. She gave Madison the paint
brush (one color at a time) and Madison started to trace the outline in lots of
bright colors. When Holly gave Madison the turquoise colored brush, she turned her
back for a second and Madison colored a big circle over the heart! We initially
thought the painting was ruined. But as we looked a little closer, it became clear
that the “big blob” was the globe, and the whole image was an example of how big
God’s love is for our world. Madison’s “Big Heart, Little Globe” has now become
the inspiration for our John 3:16 Heart and Globe print. Now, when Madison sees
her picture, she says, “Our world is so small but God’s love is so BIG!” What a
In 2008, four friends from Marietta Georgia joined together with
a unique dream that art could be meaningful, yet fun. Others have eagerly embraced
this idea until it has spread around the country. It is our hope Glory Haus art
will do more than bring beauty to your home. We pray that it will also encourage
you and bring joy to you, your family and friends.
