Turning the Hearts

 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord. - Luke 1:17

Story Behind the Art:

As we experience the joys of the gospel, we turn our hearts not only to the individuals around us, but to our ancestors who have gone before. Within this painting, we might see ourselves passing priceless fruit down from the luminous tree. The tree is symbolic in several ways: It represents the tree of life and the fruits of the gospel. It also represents a family tree with journal excerpts and records of those who have passed on, elements which are integrated within the painting. The fruit embodies those precious pieces of information we pass down through our generations. - Annie Nader
