Beauty from Ashes
A phrase commonly used figuratively and rarely used literally, except here. While the pictures may portray a hauntingly beautiful and romantic setting, the true story is one of devastation and disaster. Jenne and Mark felt God calling them away from their new home in Miamisburg, OH and into a very damaged community desperately in need of the light of Jesus. They sold their house and moved in the urban district of Dayton, OH. The transition went as smoothly as can be expected and they were in the middle of making updates to their new home and progress was being made in the community. Then came the fire. Now homeless with a 2 year old son and a 9 week old son, things were looking dark. Instead of admitting defeat, Jenne decided to use her damaged home and her old wedding dress to create a gallery of beautiful pictures, capturing the definition of beauty in the ashes. Take a look.
