Prince of Peace 2002 by Akiane Kramarik(shown)
•Having attended both public and private schools, now is home-schooled with her four brothers, Delfini 18, Jean Lu 16, Ilia 8, and Aurelius 2 years old.
•Began drawing at 4, and painting at 6, teaching herself and learning mostly from her own keen observation and study.
•Speaks four languages: Lithuanian, Russian, English and Sign Language.
•At 4, had a life-changing spiritual transformation, bringing the family to God.
•At age 7 began writing poetry and aphorisms.
•Her poems often arrive fully conceived.
•The inspiration for her art and literature comes from her visions, dreams, observations of people, nature and God.

Although Akiane is not Catholic..her mother was an atheist, her father, a fallen away Catholic...her visions of Heaven have led her family to Christianity.
This piece is called "Open Door", maybe God is calling her. She painted this in 2010 at the age of 16.

A poem and painting called, "On my Knees"(2006)

When we are alone in prayer or meditation, we reach peace, joy, love and wisdom. That intimate time nourishes us for eternity.
Each of us walks through our own spiritual journey. But before we walk, before we climb, before we fly, we need to be on our knees. Many decisions need to be made in meekness. Meekness is not weakness. Meekness is the seed of strength, wisdom and love.
Each of us needs to find our own way leading to love, righteousness and happiness, and I chose young a child to complete the message.
I wake up on time.
I kneel on a kiss.
I stand up on a sting.
To be humble
is to respect your own immaturity.
Adoption of perfectionism
makes obedience incomprehensible.
Timelessness is performing
with your own returned prayer.
Kneeling inside out
passes every temptation.
We always respond
to obedience.
In eternity
humility becomes a legacy
in greatness.
