Medium/Genre

Spoken Word

Artist Statement

This is a handsewn creation of the Armor of God. I wanted to leave a visual of a fashionable armor and using Rose Gold as the theme color.

How it fits into contest

The descriptions of using Ephesion 6:10-20 as instructions to family members of the addicts. The poem reflects feeling helpless when loved ones suffering from addiction but knowing it is spiritual warfare and how to protect themselves and give them hope. I want them to realize what their responsibility is and trust God.
