Gina Davidson of Gina Davidson Art
1. 1. Tell us about you! Your name, where you're from, about your family, etc.
My name is Gina Davidson, my husband and I live in Newport Beach, California.
2. How has God uniquely made you and gifted you?
I'm so thankful for the gift of art and creativity God has uniquely given me. But writing is not really one of my gifts as you can see (:
3 &4. Tell us about your ministry, page, business, etc. What inspired you to start? What keeps you going?
My husband Andrew and I started a business together in 1999, using tumbled marble stone we imported from the mountains east of Ephesus. Almost 2 years ago, we felt the Lord inspired us to combine our faith and business to start Twelve Stone Art, as a tool to share God's Word one stone at a time, and also give part of the sales to provide clean water in the developing countries through Compassion and Iris Global. We're so amazed at how the Lord has blessed Twelve Stone Art beyond our imagination.
5.What are your greatest struggles in what you do?
Being a small business owner could be so overwhelming sometimes because you have to do so many different tasks on your own and I don't have enough energy to keep going sometimes. I really need Jesus every second to help me.
6. What is the one thing you have learned from what you do?
I used to work for a big corporation for 15 years. My husband asked me to quit that job and helped with our business full time. I was so terrified to leave my identity and security from that job. Few years after quitting that job, I noticed God has blessed me even more than I could ever imagine until today. I've learned that God can be trusted and He is so good and faithful!!
7. What is your greatest passion for the Kingdom of God?
To set people free from the lies of the enemy and share the love of Jesus and the power of the Gospel. Using my art to touch hearts with the Father's love and connect them to His heart is my deepest desire.
8.What could you talk about for hours?
Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit -- by far the most exciting thing I've ever done!!
9.What has God been teaching you lately?
Power and authority to share the Gospel, heal the sick, cast out demons, and raised the dead have been given to me through Jesus, the same power who raised Jesus from the dead lives in me.
10. What do you think is the greatest struggle facing Christian women today?
Believing the lies of the enemy.
