Welcome to Artful Adventures
Journeys of Peace, Beauty, and Reflection
Connect with Peace and Power to Transform Your Life and the World
In a world that often feels fragmented and chaotic, find your sanctuary of peace and power. Introducing Artful Adventures – a unique blend of original artwork and ecumenical prayers delivered directly to you, fostering a powerful, peaceful transformation in your life and beyond.
It began as a personal adventure
What does an artist do when confronted with swirling chaos? Well, this one paints! I started creating this pieces as a way to focus my own prayers. I know that prayer is powerful, and is the most important thing we can do in any situation. I grew up in church and have watched prayer change many situations in my life and the world around me. My artwork has been a conversation with God for many years, but with these pieces, I invited others into that conversation in a more direct way by posting the prayers as well as the artwork.
The response was beyond anything I expected. Here are some of the comments of those who experienced these pieces and prayers on my social media:
I was asked if I was going to put them in books, and I’ve done four books so far. I was also asked if I had considered an email subscription. It took me a while to find the technology that allowed for this, but here it is now! I also like the idea of having things available off-line as well. In case you, like me, are minimizing screen time whenever possible. So, I have three options at two frequencies for each of the Artful Adventures. You can choose daily or weekly frequencies, and receive the image and the prayer via email or postal mail. I also have an option to receive all of the prints should you wish to have the pieces around you as a reminder throughout the day. Read on to find out more.

The Art of Reflection: A Personal Retreat
Artful Adventures empowers you to take an active role in improving your lives and communities through several key avenues:
Focused Prayer Initiatives: By engaging in specific, targeted prayers, you actively seek positive change for various aspects of your personal life, family, and wider communities. This focused intent can lead to actionable insights and the motivation to make tangible improvements.
Community Engagement: I encourage you form or join prayer groups, to foster a sense of unity and shared purpose. A community aspect not only strengthens individual resolve but also creates a network of support that can help you and your community make positive changes.
Art as a Catalyst for Change: The artwork provided isn’t just for contemplation but serves as a reminder and a motivator. It’s designed to inspire and uplift, encouraging you to seek beauty and goodness in your surroundings and to create positive change in your environment.
Non-Partisan and Ecumenical: By emphasizing ecumenical and non-partisan prayers, each adventure helps break down barriers and encourages a more understanding of and compassion for those around you.
Personal Growth and Transformation: As you engage with the prayers and artwork, you’re invited to reflect on your own life and actions. You’ll discover new aspects of prayer that you may not have thought about and enrich your prayer time.
Legacy Building: Consider the legacy you wish to leave your family and community. Artful Adventures motivates you to think long-term about the impact of your actions and the kind of world you’re leaving for the generations behind you.
Global Perspective with Local Action: While the prayers and themes may sometimes focus on global issues, the emphasis is on how you can make a difference locally. This approach empowers you to take actionable steps in your communities, contributing to a wider global impact.
By intertwining spirituality, art, and community, Artful Adventures offers you a multifaceted approach to personal and communal improvement, encouraging active participation in creating a more peaceful, hopeful, and loving world.

Frequently Asked Questions
Most frequent questions and answers
What is Artful Adventures?
Artful Adventures are unique experiences that combines the power of prayer and the beauty of art to inspire individuals to transform their lives and communities. Through daily or weekly emails or physical mail, participants receive original artwork and ecumenical prayers focused on various themes of peace, hope, and transformation.
Are these original art pieces?
Yes, every piece was created by Alice Arlene Briggs. Some are mixed media, and some are digitally painted. All are painted by hand.
I’ve attended many different churches. Often, I notice that people tend to focus on the differences in the outward appearances of worship, rather than what unites us. Every group of people tends to develop their own language and style. And, not all groups agree on the meaning of some theological concepts. I distilled the prayers down into simple language that I believe most, if not all, can agree on. In these times of division, unity is a powerful tool.
Are these political?
If by political, you mean am I pushing for one political party or another to win? Absolutely not. I’m constantly reminded of Joshua when he asked the angel of the Lord, “Are you for us or for our enemies?” The angel of the Lord’s answer was, “Neither.” These prayers seek to have God’s will and truth be known and manifest in the earth. In that way, they will have a political outcome, in that they will affect society and its governance, but I have a suspicion that it might look different than any of us can imagine. Whatever the best is, that’s what I believe God knows and wants as well, so I’m praying in alignment with and for that best.

You talk about peace, but also action, how does that work?
It’s human nature to swing from one extreme to another, and to believe that things are mutually exclusive when they are not. Peace and action are two of these. We so often tend to think of peace as being the guru on the top of a mountain, away from it all and quiet. We tend to think of action being lots of movement and activity, possibly excessively so. I believe that the truth lies in the middle. We are to be active while remaining at peace. To be at peace inside as we move about the world doing good and living our lives. Peaceful action – ad Christ exemplified during his earthly ministry. He accomplished a lot, went lots of places and did a lot of things, but he was at peace.
How does the artwork contribute to the experience?
Each piece of art is thoughtfully created to complement the prayer themes and serve as a visual reminder of your journey. Artwork can elevate mood, provide inspiration, and serve as a focal point during contemplation or group discussions.
Can I cancel my subscription at any time?
