A Heart So Big by Janice VanCronkhite

A heart so, so big!

I have always loved horses, and my early years were spent wildly riding bareback on my pony through the cornfields in Illinois.

After the Lord released prophetic art to me a few years ago there came a time when He wouldn't reveal any more "pictures" to me until I painted a white horse. As I studied Revelation, I discovered more about the power and beauty of horses. Behold became my first Revelation horse, and it started a series of Revelation horse paintings.

I believe that Secretariat was a Revelation horse. He was probably the greatest earthly horse of all time,

created by God to represent an end time people with a heart after God as well as each other. He was a phenomenon, winning the triple crown at Belmont by a record 31 lengths in 1973!

It wasn't until his death and autopsy that the mystery of his greatness was revealed. Secretariat had a healthy heart that was 2 1/2 times larger than normal and that weighed 22 pounds! His 22 pound heart is a prophetic representation of Isaiah 22:22: "Then I will set the key of the house of David on his shoulder, when

he opens no one will shut, when he shuts no one will open."

Like Secretariat, the Lord is raising up a people with supernatural hearts of passion that love Him and their neighbors. It is still His intention that the world will know we are His followers by our big, big hearts of love!

Many sources of inspiration
The initial spark behind my story of Secretariat's big, big heart in this newsletter was a wonderful article written by my friend, Paul Keith Davis. Inadvertently, when my newsletter was taken from draft to "send it out," this important piece was omitted. I encourage you to read Paul Keith's full article, excerpted from his book, "Books of Destiny," on his web page at
My first invitation to paint live at a conference came from Paul Keith in 2005. I will always be grateful for this "big break" as a new artist and his belief in the power of  prophetic art.

Fall Art Retreat on
FireCreek Mountain
Burnsville, NC
November 4-7, 2010

Open to men, women and young artists!

Nestled in the lush beauty of FireCreek Mountain in the Appalachian Mountains, I am offering my Releasing the Art and Creativity of Heaven retreat with room for men, women, and young people (14 years of age and up accompanied by parent).

Extraordinary things happen on FireCreek Mountain. Everything about it seems charged with heaven's atmosphere and creative portals. FireCreek is a fifty-nine acre mountain retreat brimming
with natural beauty and inspiration. It's located 29 miles northeast of Asheville and near the highest mountain peaks east of the Mississippi.
 As in all my retreats, I welcome both newbie and experienced artists who desire to move into prophetic art expressions. Each session is tailored for the needs and desires of the participants. One-on-one instruction, impartation, critiquing and prayer are all important elements in the process.On the pond

Art instruction includes composition, mixing colors, and texturing. I also teach about the spiritual meaning of colors, objects, numbers, and scents as it relates to prophetic art and interpretation.
If you are interested in reserving your place for this retreat or need more information,  contact  me ASAP.
