INSPIRATION BEHIND THE ILLUSTRATION

The main angel in this heaven tale is based upon an angel who once walked this earth.  In April of 2020, Kelly’s 21 year old sister-in-law, Brooklyn, passed away unexpectedly from epilepsy. 

Brooklyn was kind and compassionate. People were drawn to Brooklyn, she was a beautiful girl with a heart-warming smile and she would light up any room when she walked in, but she was also beautiful on the inside — she had a heart for loving people and a joy that was so contagious!  Brooklyn loved Jesus with all her heart, soul, and mind. She was wise beyond her years and made God a priority in her life. Her love for her Savior was sweet and beautiful. As young and full of life as Brooklyn was, she suffered with epilepsy her entire life which was exhibited by absence seizures. Despite her struggles with epilepsy, she was positive, an overcomer, and always spread joy to others. Her family and friends prayed for healing, and though she might not have been healed on earth, on Good Friday, God healed her perfectly and completely by His side in heaven.

Brooklyn loved to watch Kelly draw, and she was not shy in giving her input and suggestions on colors, ideas, and details. She watched as Kelly sketched and designed Grace and her mom into a reality so naturally.  Creating the angels, however, did not come as effortlessly. When Brooklyn went to heaven that April, Kelly gained a whole new perspective of imagining heaven. Brooklyn became her personal inspiration to depict a glimpse of the joy of heaven and the hope we have in Jesus.
