Sarita’s desire is to glorify the Lord with her life and gifts as well as train and equip other artists to do the same through systematic teaching. She believes that the Arts are a vehicle in which the Lord uses her and empowers others to draw people to Himself in order to grow in their understanding of who He is and show them how much He loves them. She counts it a privilege and an honor to be used by the Lord in such a life changing way that she has experienced change in her own life.
