"I think it is very important to see one’s self in the Scripture so that it may become real in their eyes," Lewis told The Huffington Post. "The whitewashing of the Bible has always bothered me. However I’m happy to now have the opportunity to give a different point of view."
"I wish to exhibit a splash of color onto the biblical pages of history with my creative embellishments. By doing so I hope to open the minds and eyes of the ignorant and create open conversations of how we can learn to see the world through colorful lenses. After all, the Gospel of Jesus Christ is intended for everyone."
For those who’d like to see the entire collection, “Icons Of The Bible” will on display from November 2014 to February 2015 in Atlanta, GA.
Just wanted to stop by and post my outfit for today as quick as possible! All I’ve planned for today is to attend to an important lecture, go home, cuddle up on the couch and eat tons of cakes, and that is why my outfit is quite plain and casual, even though it’s my birthday.
I wanted to wear something bright that makes me smile and feel good. I simply went for this skirt cause I love the colour on it and (well you all might already know I love white) I went for this white high-neck top. It’s actually quite cold earlier this morning, so I needed a jacket/cardigan to warm me up and I thought this cardigan is a perfect piece to complete this look. It’s so warm and soft! I don’t own any bright colour ankleboots so I just went for these regular one.
Hope you like this outfit and wish you all a wonderful day!
