Becoming Painters of Faith // Vanessa Minella
Hi everyone! My name is Vanessa and I am the one behind Paint Your Faith. I would first like to
thank Rachael for collabing and letting me be on her amazing blog! Let me tell you a little bit
about myself. I am 19 years old and live in Michigan. I love everything to do with clothes,
fashion, makeup, and shopping. I am a sucker for a good chick flick and love iced caramel
macchiatos. I love to be crafty and could spend hours looking on Pinterest (literally hours). So
now that you know a little bit about me, I’m gonna tell you about Paint Your Faith.
I want to tell you what Paint Your Faith is all about. I created it to join together amazing
believers who share the same struggle: sharing their faith with others. As Christians, it can be so
hard to gather up the strength to put a word in a conversation, to defend yourself, or even just say what you firmly believe. Many times I feel so out of place. Paint Your Faith is growing into a
community that gives each other courage and confidence. You do not have to be scared to share
your faith! It is an amazing thing to have!
I have always loved English. I love metaphors and trying to find them in stories (I know, kind of
nerdy). So, while I was trying to come up with a cool name, an idea came into my head. I love
art, and when an artist paints they are physically spreading paint on to a canvas, and once the
paint hits the canvas, it is impossible to remove the color. The paint is like faith. We are
physically spreading the Word of God to people. They can’t just forget what you said, just like
how the paint can’t wipe off the canvas. The canvas is the world, your friends, peers, anyone.
“Your faith is your paint and the world is your canvas. The world needs a lot of paint”.
I hope you learned a little bit more about Paint Your Faith and I encourage you to become a
“painter”. Check out my Insta and Etsy shop where you can purchase a “Paint Your Faith”
wristband. SO many exciting things are coming, so be sure to follow!
