We help women overcome life’s everyday challenges through authentic relationships and art therapy

Life is challenging and women need the support of close friends and a positive community in order to not only survive, but to thrive in life! At the Answered Prayers Project, our goal is to provide healing support through authentic relationships and art therapy (playing with ceramic clay!) Whether you are in crisis or simply had a tough day at work, the women of the Answered Prayers Project are here for you…

“I don’t think that saying THANK YOU properly conveys my message but hugging you certainly did. You are such a blessing and your art has brought such meaning into my life. I’ll never be able to thank you enough. You are a beautiful soul and I’m better for having known you.”

“Answered Prayers Project is such a simple yet powerful ministry. You can feel the love just stepping in. Elizabeth, her staff & volunteers are so dear. Join them for an Art with Heart Potluck. I bet you will leave with more than one heart or cross!”

APP is Impacting Lives

Sometimes we are the woman making the cross, sometimes the one receiving it, and sometimes we are the woman in need.

She made a cross…

Leaving APP gives me such a feeling of personal fulfillment and a sense of God’s love.  During the time we make each cross, it is something individual from each of our hearts. I’ve met so many nice ladies and formed friendships that might have never happened if not for APP. On my 45 minute drive home, it’s a great time to reflect on what I’ve just been a part of ~ I just soak it in…

She received a cross…

A sweet friend and mother of a little boy with HLHS (Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome) passed this cross along to me, another “heart mom,” after her son recovered from his second open heart surgery. This cross was sent to me a few weeks before my son, prenatally diagnosed with congenital heart disease, was born. I am so honored to have been sent this cross and I pray that it brings my son and family blessings as it has hers.

And she received a grant from APP…

APP has given me wings to survive another day.  I am amazed that there are people who would help me.  I was suddenly given my 4 grandchildren to raise, I “didn’t qualify for services” because I work a full-time job. APP stepped in when I needed childcare, held a “Virtual Baby Shower” (as I had nothing for these children) and paid my rent. They helped me not go under (literally & financially)!
I am thankful for their help. APP changed our circumstances & made a lifelong impact.
