Hello! I’m Robyn Terry.
Welcome to Faith Miner’s Daughter. I am so happy you are here. I started this site as a blog to share my own faith journey. I call it “faith-mining”, which means giving God access to the heights and depths of us: to grow, shape, and change us. We treasure Jesus, and become His treasured possession by faith. In my own experience, I have been the mountain to move; creating barriers, often subconsciously, to going deeper with God. Faith refines us, and is of “greater worth that gold”. As we trust God, we are “proved genuine”, and our faith results in “praise, glory, and honor” to Jesus (1 Peter 1:7).
I am a wife, mother, grandmother, and an aspiring creative. My venture into being a stay-at-home homeschooling mom/writer is what I call a “life journey of faith, hope, and love” – the three eternal things that matter in the Kingdom of God. In the past few years, my writing ministry has been changing, as God is changing me. I was most surprised by His crazy-love gift of art! I really didn’t see that coming. I shake my head often at the wonder of Him leading me into painting….something so wonderful I still can’t begin to call it a “job”. Mixed media art was a completely undiscovered passion until just a few years ago. I wrote about my awakening if you want to read more. I would “officially” say I am an emerging Christian mixed media artist. I still write, but now I also paint, and, these days, painting seems to come more easily. It brings me immense joy to create and share messages of faith, hope, and love. My purpose is to “inspire women of faith to take he(ART) and move mountains”. I am SO excited about the newest piece of this creative life: something I call the “Take he(ART) party”. Read more about it below, and all the other resources available to you here. Thank you for stopping by. I hope you will visit often, and always leave encouraged in your own life journey of faith, hope, and love.
“My purpose is that they be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely Christ, in whom are hidden all treasures of wisdom and knowledge” (Colossians 2:2, 3).
Getting to Know Faith Miner’s Daughter:
Move Mountains!: Start here to get familiar with the type of content I write. This is a “best of” collection of blog posts I have gathered to give you a deeper understanding of growing in relationship with God. I explain the concept of the “mountain” further and how God works to change us through faith.
*NEW* Host a Take He(ART) Party: Want to try your hand at making a mixed media painting, but a little nervous about going to one of those pay-to-paint places? This might be an alternative for you. You pick the theme, date, and invite some friends, and I will bring the art to you, along with a personal message to encourage you in faith. It’s art with heart…a word of truth to take to heart, and a lovely painting to take home as an ongoing reminder. Click the link for details, themes, and to contact me for scheduling!
