“I died, and I went to heaven. And then I saw the world. I saw myself stumbling drunk on the earth,” said Monzon.
In a deeply religious experience, Monzon said she pleaded with God to give her another chance.
“When I die, I want to be remembered that I did something good for the people, something good for the world. I don’t want to die like this — desperate,” Monzon prayed.
After that, she was able to kick her addictions and begin rebuilding her life. She started by moving into the Village of Hope at the Poverello House. She then enrolled at Fresno City College before transferring to Fresno State to get her bachelor’s degree in art, followed by her Master of Art in December 2019.
“Ms. Monzon’s art communicates a message of hope to the downtrodden, the addicts, the women fleeing abusers, their children,” said Dr. Honora Chapman, interim dean, College of Arts and Humanities. “No wonder then, that her picture hangs at Poverello House and that she was involved in celebrating founder Papa Mike’s life after he passed away: she is a part of the fabric of this city as a volunteer and an artist — a true citizen of our community.”
When I was dead in heaven a voice told me to gind a guide and get away from the pull of the dark abyss and find a guide or I die forever. I found Christ. I called on God and he came near but I could not see his face the ray of light coming from his hand was too brighr. I woke up nd strted building Archangels. Everytime zi made a voil zi thought it wad a ray of light from God"s hand and I pray
Over and over I built praying to the zLight of the beam. In the end I called them tthe four directiond of the Cardinal Cross of Heaven becausie I am in Academia studying Master in Arts but to me they are the 4 Archangels of the Absolute God the Father
I am a student who just graduated with an MA in Arts emphasis in Sculpturewho is seeking the opportunity to share my God-inspired Archangels of Light inspired by the Light of God as his Word of Salvation. My art is a message of forgiveness through prayer, love, and service. The lord is magnified by those who serve him. He gives us the spirit of thanksgiving to share with others to establish his kingdom of Light and Mercy through redemption by the new Covenant of his blood. My art transcends the sacrifices in native culture in America because of the Blood of the Lamb was shed to atone for human sacrifices in worship.
