About Me

In 1 John, scripture says, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." God sent His Son, Christ, to be the Word; and it is through the Word that we grow to love and know Him intimately. 

I've always been a lover of words. In joy and in tribulation, I choose words to express, inspire, or encourage my heart. This business started from my love for calligraphy, watercolor, and words. My prayer is for God to be glorified and women to be encouraged.

My husband, my love, supports and loves me unconditionally. Because of his hard work, he has given me the gift to stay home and train and love our babies each day. He has also encouraged me to pursue this avenue. From buying all of the supplies, to designing my website, he is my true helper. In addition to that, through this season of raising four, six and under, he dedicates his time to pursuing Jesus, loving me, and our children. We can be an emotional, needy clan, but he meets those needs with patience and calmness. He is truly our rock. 

My daughters, my three beautiful daughters...they amaze me and challenge me. I have the privilege of being their mama and teacher. What I have learned is that my propensity to be selfish is like, WHOA, and they are teaching me it is better to give than receive...that God gives grace to humble and he opposes the proud. Doing the daily rhythms; eating together, praying together, learning together, (striving) to serve, and forgive each other, builds my faith like nothing else. And they a thrilled by the arrival of their baby brother. He is loved and adored!  A lot of my prints come from the words that God has used to encourage me during this season.

All of my pieces of reproductions of original hand lettered, calligraphed paintings by myself. Contact me, alissa@ivyletter.com, for any custom work.
