    Story

    This page is in memory of Zoe Powell, created to honour the impact of her life on so many people. All proceeds will go to Zoe's husband, Josh, and surviving baby, P.

    Zoe's heart for Jesus and creativity along with her love of watercolour and literature are shown in the various projects she has worked on.

    From writing encouragements and creating literature-inspired art in Zoeprose, to her heart for mamas and supporting the mental health of those with young children in The Mamabook, along with setting up Our Creative Isle to highlight and promote UK creatives, Zoe's gentle spirit has impacted so many lives around the UK.

    In 2018, Zoe answered the following question: "What are your hopes and dreams for the future?"

    This is what she said: "I just want to be able to continue being creative and being obedient to what God is calling me to do with that. Whether that is pursuing writing more, teaching somehow, creating more intricate collections of bigger weaves, growing The Mama Book to reach more mamas or something else I haven’t thought of yet, I’m excited to see what he has in store."

    Zoe's entire life was about sharing Jesus and making Him known, and we pray that in her death, people would see her faithfulness and look to Him. Zoe and her precious children are with Him awaiting resurrection life, and while our hearts break at this tragedy, we pray that you will know the hope Zoe had in life and is experiencing in death.

    Some tributes from creatives who have known her:

    "I loved how she pursued her passions and pointed people to Jesus in such a gentle and beautiful way. Her love for classic children's literature and her heart to support new mums were also both so wonderful. She will be so missed." Cath, Hope and Ginger

    "Zoe has been a dear and treasured friend to me since before Cheerfully Given officially launched, and has been part of our community for over 4.5 years. Her heart for Jesus and encouraging people to look to Him shines out of the work of her hands. The number of new babies who have come into the world with her scripture cards being read out, the number of mamas who have drawn closer to Jesus because of her gorgeous devotionals, the number of homes where Zoe's art graces the walls with reminders of our Heavenly Bridegroom, the number of lives she has impacted with her creative vision and heart for Christ. We praise Jesus for her, and our hearts break that she has gone. We look forward to being with her again and know that she and her precious babies are with Him." - Menekse, Cheerfully Given

    "[After hearing the news] I realised this was the lady I had bought a set of cards from for a friend’s birthday during lockdown. I then went downstairs to see a card through my door - one of Zoe’s cards that I had given her. Zoe is still touching people’s lives now that she is now with her Father in glory." - Rachel

    "We supported each other a lot through our baby loss and she was so kind to me in so many ways. Zoe has been such a constant but quiet, godly presence in the world of Christian art. She was such ha thankful person, but also not afraid to say that life in a broken world is hard." - Ruth

    "One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to enquire in his temple." - Psalm 27:4, one of Zoe's favourite verses

        I did not know Zoe but I do know her parents. Such a dreadful thing to have happened. I know God has a plan for all His children but it so hard to accept this sometimes.
