Inspirational Messages and Art from Hannah Doyle

26 comments

This past week, my wife, Candace, went away to the beach with some girlfriends, so it was just my daughter, Hannah, and I from Thursday to Sunday. When I woke up on Friday morning, Hannah had left me two notes to read and a mask that she created in her art class. I love the way my daughter shares from her heart. The notes were very touching. As I looked around our kitchen, I saw all of the beautiful artwork and inspirational messages that she’s been slowly posting around our kitchen walls for the past few months. The messages are really beautiful, and I wanted to share them with you. So this past Sunday, we took pictures of her artwork, typed them up,
and posted a blog post from her with all of the messages and pictures included.

Please click the link below to take a look at all of her beautiful and inspiring messages and pictures. Please feel free to share your thoughts and feelings in the comments section at the bottom of her blog post. I know she would enjoy hearing how her words touched your heart. They certainly touched mine.

Click Here to see her artwork and inspiring messages. She is 11 years old.

Below are the two letters that she shared with me. Apparently, she wrote both of these letters in her art class after feeling frustrated at not being able to re-create the pictures of the art that she sees in her mind. She said she shared these with her art teacher. I have transcribed the text below the pictures in case you can’t read them. In the first letter, she expresses her pain. In the second letter, she shares her healing.

Just can't reach it

Letter 1: When I go to write a song, no words come to mind. I think of rhymes and more rhymes, but I’m not writing a song of ABC’s. I want to convey a message of meaning, something to say to the world. I want to share my passion and thoughts of love, faith, joy the beautiful way I receive them. I want to be heard. I just don’t know who will hear me, who will see me reaching out to touch the stars. I try to touch them through art or pictures, but each time I give up on myself and toss my creativity out the window. I feel one step farther away from reaching my dreams. Just can’t reach it.

 hopeful fire in your soul

Letter 2: If a picture paints 1000 words, then why do most artists not enjoy writing, and writers not to love for art when their passions are the same? It is expression. Feeling speaks through art and words, yet it is expressed through your words and characters are pictures of like… The struggling expression through the mouth of Hannah Doyle.

When we try, try, start over, try, try, and fail once again, it is said that we are no good. Success is not the perfection in your copy, it is the creativity in your voice. Not the voice of failure, but the voice of attempt. Creativity makes work its true beauty. Creativity makes you, you. Find the creativity within you, and let it shine. Give up maybe on your short term expression, but never let the hopeful fire in your soul burn dim.

    Wow very inspiring and touching. You should publish them in a book for other children. I know a publisher you can contact.  penny@xoxopublishing.com  Good luck!

    The children coming in these days, especially those with great parents, are gifted,
    awake, and aware. Thank you for being you, David, Candace, great parents, and Hannah,
    gifted child. Be and express who you are, Hannah, and listen only to your inner voice.

    Wow!!!  Hannah, your precious voice has inspired me this morning.  I love your words “It is not the perfection in your copy, it is the creativity in your voice”.  I just wrote a blog post myself this morning and was wondering if it was “good enough” to share.  I did share it and now reading your dear words I am privileged to share the same voice of love in writing that you did.  You are a complete treasure, thank you so much for sharing.  xoxo

    absolutely brilliant…well done Hannah

    Dear Hannah,
    I am beginning again, at 52, to express in the way that you are doing, naturally, at 11.  I remember being 11 and expressing, then.  But somewhere along the way I doubted myself and from there on, things got hard.  I am here, loving you, and following in your footsteps.  You are so right, writing and art, as well as dance, song, music, speech… are all forms of expression.   In that way they spring forth as One.  Actually, we are expressions, aren’t we!  😉  You are a beautiful expression of the Divine, Hannah!  Thank your Dad for me, for sharing your words and artwork with all of us! 
    Love,
    Kirsten

    I’m so glad you’re following along the path of love writing. I thank you for reading my words of wisdom and I hope they guide you to YOUR expression of who you are into love writing. 

  • HannahDoyle

    “How Sweet!” Mom and I said as we read over your comment. Thank you so much for your lovely words of wisdom. When I first wrote my pieces, I didn’t think anything of them. I owe my decision to post to my friends mom, who read it and said she was amazed. Now, I know it is “good enough” but I want you to know that you are ALWAYS “good enough.” As long as you get something out of your post, it is definitely good enough!

    Dear Hannah,

    Love,
    Anita

    This is profound, I am blessed to read and see what she has shared. Enjoy these times, Dad. They are gone to soon. Enjoy and bathe in them. I have sweet momentos from my children. I have an ashtray one made me of ceramics. I have letters a couple of them wrote us about how they could not wait to get old enough to get an apartment and do as they pleased. To soon, they found out the grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence. Thanks for sharing these beautiful expressions. 

  • Georgianne Gies

    Oh my, how eloquently Hannah expresses what so many of us have felt throughout life and how wise she is to see the true worth of that creative urge within us. You are blessed, Hannah! Thank you so much for allowing us to see this truth through your eyes!

    The expressions of Hannah’s thoughts shared is so  amazing. God is a creative Creator who created masterpieces out of muck.All that is needed of mankind is a spark to light and God will use the ashes to do something creative in us. 

  • euna

     Am so impressed by this little girl.  You are blessed to have a daughter who can express her thoughts in a  paper.  At least you are able to know her fears and strength and how she feels about what is going around her.  May God bless her so much and increase her knowledge.

    Really Amazing kid

  • lorraine

    This is very inspired to me sometime when you grow up a child in god you have nothing to lose. That child took the foot step of what she was taught your daughter take that foot step. May god bless you all?  I may not as bless as you are I send my son to university. My son and daughter both grow up  in church and was  baptized in name  of Jesus Christ  my daughter begin to date a older man at collage this man have two children with  two difference baby mother.   She refused to stop talking to this man. This man does not have a good enough job to take care of him nor even take care of his own children. One day my daughter packs her suitcase and move out of the house to this man apartment.  My Youngers son   joints a cult religion and refuse to get out of it   at the university, please pray for them
