These paintings are featured in a Joyful Twirlers dance performance. "My only hope is to trust You... I Trust You, Lord" lyrics from Christian Musician Ryan Stevenson's Song "Eye of The Storm" reign through the hearts of this youth ministry from the youngest 3 yr old to 18. Everyone struggles sometimes and the typographical painting two dimensional art featured in this performance captures only a few of the many traumas we endure and lean on Christ to guard our soul and remain in control.
