i cried while i watched that poor teenager on Diane Sawyer’s show this evening- the one who was, in my social work opinion, terribly abused, physically, emotionally, and verbally by her father and step-monster. and there it was, dirty and painful, for all of us to see on national television. i cried for that child, who, at the end of the show, was so gracious towards the adults who had harmed her. she had a spirit of hope, forgiveness, and truth. my hope for her is that she has other people in her life who are examples to her of decency and Love and that she will find her own path of healing and light. still, so sad. made me cry. and it’s been awhile since i’ve cried, that they just seemed to flow so easily.

Hi, I'm Kelly Rae Roberts!

Before I picked up my first paintbrush at the age of 30, I was a medical social worker. I followed my whispers and started playing with paint and everything changed.

Now I’m a full-time artist, author and Possibilitarian, who helps women explore and nourish their creative souls.
