As a follow-up, we wanted to share some exciting new developments with Dolores and her husband’s journey to get back on their feet!

You’ll recall from a post back in March that Dolores and her husband had been attending our Jobs for Life class. In that class, they were encouraged by their teacher and mentor to actively engage in the process of sharing their God-given talents with the community through their job search efforts.

Both Dolores and her husband embraced the support and were faithful to throw themselves out there, an action that led them to a networking connection with Coffee Cottage where Dolores got to have her artwork on display for April’s First Friday. Dolores’ husband also managed to score a job at a local fast-food restaurant shortly after.

Since then, we’ve learned that Dolores ended up selling two pieces of art and now has art on display in the walk-way between Critter Cabana and Newberg Music Center until September. What’s more, later in September her work will be available for viewing in the artisanal next to Janis Jewelry and Gifts!

We are encouraged by this couple’s willingness to ask for help and take the assistance that is provided for them with an optimistic attitude. We are confident the Lord will continue to direct their steps.

If you are interested in purchasing art from Dolores, message us or stop by her show on Friday evening.
