The Art and The Story Behind the Art

Over Christmas my mom suggested going to Precious Moments. I hadn't been to Precious Moments in maybe over 20 years. And it's totally weird that I can say it's been over 20 years.
The story behind the artist of Precious Moments is really cool and the art in the chapel is pretty amazing too. I think most people might only think of the Precious Moment Figurines, but the art and the story behind all the pieces are amazing.  "It is my prayer, that through my work in the Chapel, I might share my faith with others and that the Spirit of God might touch the visitors’ hearts and bring them to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, our Lord." - Samual J Butcher
It doesn't take very long to visit Precious Moments. The Chapel is where all the art is located. If you're ever driving through the mid-west and you're near Carthage, Mo it's totally worth checking out.
And then when you're done you can take goofy pictures out side the chapel with your mom.

    1. It's really amazing. You can read all about the artists and the stories behind the art all through out the chapel.

  4. I never knew this existed! My mom collected the figurines when I was growing up--we even had a mini glass p.m. nativity set for a while, before the display case fell off the wall and it all broke--but I always thought that was all there was to it. This is so cool!

    1. It's really amazing! I'm so sorry about the figurines that broke. It's really neat too, because they have this huge gift shop, full of figurines and ornaments.
