Canvas Child is a compilation of paintings and poetry by artist Emily T. Wierenga. Wierenga is an active speaker and blogger, a disillusioned pastor’s daughter and the author of multiple books. These poems and paintings were created over a period of significant spiritual growth, during which Wierenga was ministering to Young Life kids while battling a relapse into anorexia nervosa. It is her prayer that they will somehow serve to minister to others.
