Akiane Kramarik is an amazing, profoundly gifted 10-year old who started her mission of making the world a better place at a very young age. Although born in an atheistic household, she became a Christian through the dreams she’s had at the age of 4, which were also the reason for her producing brilliant visionary art.
Her stunned parents realized her intense focus on God could not have been inspired by anything in the world they created for her. Indeed, Akiane seemed to be having supernatural encounters with the living God. At age when most kids cannot speak well, the child prodigy started her mission of improving the world through her drawings and poetry.
At eight years old, she decided she wanted to paint the face of Jesus, based on the visions she had received. She looked for a person she could use as a model for a long time, until she asked her family to pray to God to send her someone. On the day they prayed, a mysterious carpenter showed up at their front door looking for work. Akiane took a look at the man’s face, which was remarkably close to the vision she received, and told her mother he was the one. The man said he was not worthy to represent his Master. However, he agreed but asked to remain anonymous.

Akiane’s discovery of God seems remarkably personal. “Since nobody told me who God was, I found God myself. He’s been there for me through the years. I don’t belong to any denomination or religion. I belong to God”, says Akiane. “When I was four years old, suddenly I started experiencing vivid impressions about different dimensions and a great desire to express them through art,” she says. Initially, she utilized whatever medium was on hand: candles, lipstick, fruits, vegetables, charcoal or pencils.
“Most of my spiritual experiences I kept secret, so as not to overwhelm my parents,” says Akiane. She keeps on writing, painting and inspiring people with her unique story that proves God’s greatness.
