Type of Work



This is a self-reflection piece about the dual reality of being in a place in life that feels cold and barren, yet knowing there is always an eternal hope of renewal. Because of the hope that exists in Christ, we are joyful even through pain, just as winter always looks ahead to spring.

Contributor's Note

Christa Cape, a native of New Hampshire, is inspired by her many experiences of outdoor activities. Growing up in the woods and mountains instilled in her a love of nature. Her artwork is taken from lessons she's learned from nature--the turning of the seasons in particular and how these lessons are applied to human experiences.
