Love the Emerson quote :) I struggle with teaching my teenagers (13 & 14) that no, it is NOT all about them. Wonderful timing with your post; last night our dinner conversation centered on spending more time volunteering in our community on projects that are not necessarily "easy", "fun" or "glamorous." We volunteer to bless others by doing what needs to be done, not to entertain ourselves...
Thanks for the inspiration :)


What a wonderful quote and a beautiful piece of artwork. I look forward to reading this article.

I just began listening to The Purpose-filled Life on tape (I am a few years behind the times, I guess), and yesterday's chapter was "It's Not About You". Such a timely post. Especially when, as a stay-at-home wife/mom with a toddler, I can sometimes feel the pull to do what I want to do rather than putting my family's wants first. Thank you.


Thank you for another lovely and meaningful, Rebecca. Which Amy Carmichael biography are you reading?


What a perfect quote to live by. I love Somerset Studios and am so excited to read this month's issue so that I can see more of your beautiful work and read more of your thoughts. Congratulations! xoxo Gigi


A wonderful quote and a beautiful art piece. Is your feature in the October issue or the next one? I ask because I rarely buy the ones with all the Halloween stuff in them - just not for me. But if you are featured...well, I'll just have to check it out!



even though the doors may be heavy sometimes, the effort makes a difference. what a beautiful reminder of these thoughts through your art work.

How on earth did you get to be so smart? A true artist, BUT more than that a true person. True to what you stand for, wanting to do more, and be better... there is nothing better Rebecca! You shed light in a dark world, and expose the darkness for all to see. I love your words, and these reminders to take a look in the mirror and see who we really are! No wonder Stampington shares you and your voice with it's readers!! Bravo smart girl, bravo!!


That's a perfect thought for today (and always, actually). And a truly lovely expression of the thought/words in your art. Thank you for sharing your real self.

Beautiful art and a tall order. Why can't all messages come looking so lovely? Thanks for the nudge in the right direction.


such a rich and humble piece ~elk

I'm amazed at how you always seem to have just the right words {yours or borrowed} to gently guide your readers ...inspiring us all to be better, to do better, to live better. Once again, thank you. And that latest piece of art is just lovely; I think you've just outdone yourself {at least until the next one}!

Hello Rebecca,

Your blog is certainly a treasure found. Your artwork is beautiful. Thank you so much for the lovely quote. Enjoy a fabulous coming weekend.




Congratulations on such a beautiful article! I'll try to remember the "even someone you don't like" part...
Thanks for the reminder!


I read your article in Somerset Studios. I've always loved your artwork and was please to see you be featured in the magazine. Rice is a talented writer and she captured your essence beautifully!


congratulations, Rebecca! and so cannot wait to see you, my wonderful friend, in a few short weeks! xoxo

Great article, and such humbling thoughts. I am facing a difficult challenge this month and your thoughts and the comments to them remind me, "It's not about me".
Thank You.
