All the awesome folks who write, make and create for Parish Content.
I’m a digital marketer, entrepreneur, dad, and DIYer. I love to create. Working with Father Ian VanHeusen and many of the parishes around North Carolina led to this idea of Parish Content. We have a network of super talented people that work within our community and we wanted to harness all that amazing talent to support Catholic parishes all over the world.

Hello there! My name is Paula, I’m an artist who loves Jesus, Mamma Mary and the Catholic Church. I am also the creator of Jewels of Grace Letters! Jewels of Grace Letters has personally become a creative outlet for me to share Gods love with others through art, hand lettering and calligraphy. It all started with a seed planted in my heart, a calling from God to create. Just as simple as that I began to practice my lettering and surprisingly I started to draw as well. I’ve always known that I like to doodle and draw but I never thought that it would turn into something like this and that’s only through the grace of God. The meaning behind the name “Jewels of Grace Letters” is special for me because it was inspired by a quote from my Confirmation saint, St. Agnes of Rome;
“Christ made my soul beautiful with the jewels of grace and virtue”.
I do believe that St. Agnes has throughout my life interceded for me and I find it fitting to dedicate my art and designs to her. My mission with Jewels of Grace Letters is to share Gods love and the beauty of the Catholic Church with others through art, I’m so grateful that I have been able to do that through Instagram. If you would like to see more of my designs please feel free to stop by on Instagram @jewelsofgraceletters.
I pray that my designs will bring you peace and joy that only comes from our Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you for the opportunity to share Gods love with you! Praying for you!
