The Cedarville Review 2024

38 CERAMICS Truths & Lies Mugs Kaitlyn D. Davis Contributor's Note: As I began this project, I thought about the conversations my close friends and I have about our struggles, which are often over coffee or tea. These conversations are safe but can be painful and raw as we dive past the surface into our deeper lives. Often, the struggles we discuss are rooted in lies that Satan uses to attack God’s children. As believers, we are supposed to have fellowship where we can confess our brokenness and point each other back to God’s truth. For this project, I created 15 pairs of mugs displaying Satan’s lies and God’s corresponding truth. The lies displayed are based on the real struggles of real people. The mug pairs are intended to provide an opportunity for believers to have deep and vulnerable conversations to discuss Satan’s lies and the truth God reveals.
