Palanca Gifts Mission Statement:
The goal of Palanca Gifts is to provide new, creative, and
affordable choices for those of us in the Christian renewal
community who want to support others on their weekends. Palanca
Gifts was created in love and faith that many will be touched
by the message of the designs. Please help us to pass it
on, and tell others about Palanca Gifts. Ultreya! Carolyn
Palanca Gifts is a SacredImages Website:
Palanca Gifts is another venture of it's sister site http://www.sacredimages.net.
They are both creative outlets for Carolyn Staut and her
original photography and graphic art.
Sacred Images was formed in 2002 as a creative
expression of the artistic gifts God has given Carolyn. Starting
as a hobby, photography soon became a passion for Carolyn.
After several years of sharing her work with only family
and friends, she listened to their urgings to see if there
was a larger interest in her photographs. Thus, Sacred Images
was born! Over the years, Carolyn has grown professionally
as a free-lance photographer. Her works are displayed in
public buildings, restaurants, and stores throughout Texas.
Originally, another spiritual outlet for her creativity,
Carolyn started using her photographs as a basis for renewal
themed stationery and gifts. De Colores! The colors of the
rainbow in these designs reflect her intense joy in being
a Child of God. A Cursillista since 1978, she wanted to share
her designs with the Christian renewal community. Palanca,
for Carolyn, means gifts of love, service, sacrifice, and
prayer. In keeping with her faith based beliefs, it seemed
only natural that Palanca Gifts would be an instrument of
action through service to support the outreach work of the
her community called, Compassionate
