UPDATED BIO~January 2010

Art~ always a part of my life. Inspiration~my best friend, my mother, God rest her precious souI. My father~my biggest fan keeping me encouraged and inspired. Self taught they call it…but with successes and failures, having been taught and mistaught, inspired, uninspired, lead and mislead, all by ‘self taughters’ ,I am where I am today and continue to grow and learn from life and others. I am a wife and mother of 6. As a practicing RN for over 20yrs, I realized my life didn’t fit “me”.

My real dream was to own a horse and live on a small farm. In chasing that dream, I caught it, and presently dwell in a small Pennsylvania farm house circa 1870, with my hubby and our horses, etc, etc, etc. I hadn’t touched art for 7yrs, THEN…since we love candles, began a small beeswax candle business 2005 called, The Primitive Chandler.

The Bumble Bee is the signature doll for Outside the Box Primitives because beeswax restarted my creating, after much encouragement from my children! While working as a nurse for a sweet handicapped girl…her family told me she loved art. I began bringing my doll art with me to work. It made her smile. She enjoyed watching the dolls go from flat to fat and plain to personality. The dolls became quite demanding in my head, scratching, and entering my dreams anxious to be let out. I began creating the “tinies” full time spring 2008, leaving nursing behind. It makes me happy.

My first published doll was a witch in Art Doll Quarterly, fall 2008. I am still humbled and honored with each new publication. The latest accomplishment is to be an officially licensed artist for Bethany Lowe Designs. My dolls are presently being reproduced in the Philippines, and I look forward to their debut in the July 2010 catalog and in stores January 2011.

I thank my husband, Dr. Roger Seeber for all his encouragement and tolerance being married to an artist, he is a scientist! If it weren’t for him, I would not be able to do what I do. Thanks to my daughter Shanna for her help, support and expertise in banners and backgrounds! Thanks to all my customers who love, purchase and collect Outside the Box Primitives.

“ a daily saturation of art gives reality purpose”.

CALLING ON THE NAME OF THE LORD?

On the Day of Pentecost Peter quoted the prophet Joel (Acts 2:21'And it shall be that everyone who call on the name of the Lord will be saved.')

To call on the name of the Lord is to acknowledge the authority and power of the Lord, and follow in obedience by meeting the terms of pardon.

The apostle Peter did not tell those on the Day of Pentecost to say the "sinner's prayer." Saying the "sinner's prayer" is not calling on the name of the Lord.

Peter preached the death, burial, and bodily resurrection of Jesus. Peter declared the Jesus was Lord and Christ. (Acts 2: 22-26) They obviously believed Peter's preaching because they asked the question(Acts 2:37 ....."Brethren what shall we do?")
Peter did not tell them to say the "sinner's prayer." What was Peter's response to their question? (Acts 2:38 Peter said to them, "Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.)


THE NARRATIVE OF CALLING ON THE NAME OF THE LORD.
1. FAITH: Believe in the death, burial, and bodily resurrection of Jesus. Accept Jesus as Lord and Savior.
2. CONFESSION: Acknowledge Jesus as the Christ and the Son of God.
3. REPENTANCE: Make the commitment to turn from sin and turn toward God.
4. WATER BAPTISM: Be immersed into Christ for the forgiveness of your sins.


HOW DID THE ETHIOPIAN EUNUCH CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD? (Acts 8:25-40


1. Philip preached Jesus to him. (Acts 8:35)
2. He confessed Jesus as The Christ the Son of God. (Acts 8:37)
3. He was baptized in water. Immersed by Philip. (Acts 8:38-39)
The Ethiopian eunuch did not say the sinner's pray nor was he asked to do so by Philip.


Romans 10:13 for "WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED."


Romans 10:9-10 that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; 10 for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.


To call on the name of the Lord is to acknowledge His power and authority and confess Him as Lord and Christ . (Acts 2:26,Acts 8:37, Romans 10:9-10) To call on the Name of the Lord is to repent and be baptized. (Acts 2:38)


WE ARE TOLD TO CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD TO BE SAVED.


We are never told we are saved by "faith only." We are never told that saying the "sinner's prayer" is calling on the name of the Lord.


IF SAYING THE "SINNER'S PRAYER" IS NOT A REQUIREMENT FOR SALVATION? THEN WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS FOR SALVATION.


THE REQUIREMENTS!
1. Faith: John 3:16
2. Belief and baptism: Mark 16:16
3. Confession and belief: Romans 10:9-10
4. Born of water and Spirit: John 3:5
5. Grace and faith: Ephesians 2:8
6. Buried through baptism: Roman 6:4-5
7. Water baptism: 1 Peter 3:20-21
8. Baptism: Acts 22:16
9. Baptized into Christ: Galatians 3:27
10. Believe: Acts 16:30-31
11. Repentance and baptism: Acts 2:38
12. God's mercy, water baptism, and the Holy Spirit: Titus 3:5
13. Water baptism: Colossians 2:12-13
14. Repentance: Acts 3:19


IF YOU HAVE COMPLETED THESE REQUIREMENTS---THEN YOU HAVE CALLED ON THE NAME OF THE LORD!
