Heart to Heart
Stories That Must Be Told by Dianna Effner
Sometimes dolls have stories to tell. They can have a purpose and a mission.
I have often used a doll or group of dolls to tell a story that must be told.
I am ever amazed and deeply grateful to have been blessed with such a delightful occupation as doll making. At the same time I am also deeply grateful that I live in a country where I have had the freedom to be whatever I wanted to be. Not all of the world is so fortunate. Sometimes it is necessary to reflect for a moment on the injustices in the world, to bring them to light so that we can work, fight and pray to end them. I have sometimes used my doll making skills to try to raise awareness of a particular situation that exists in the world today. In China there is a group of people who are imprisoned, tortured and even killed because the Communist regime does not approve of their beliefs and their practice of meditation and exercise. These people are innocent. Their only crime is to follow a spiritual path that became so popular in China that it's followers outnumbered the Communist party membership, over 70 Million. It became so popular because it has been shown to be truly beneficial. The practice is called Falun Dafa. It is practiced by over 100 million people world wide. I can say from personal experience that it is very beneficial in many ways.
Here are the dolls and stories that I have created to tell about the dreadful persecution of the good people
of China who practice Falun Dafa to cultivate Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance.

This little girl touched my heart to think her dear mother is in prison for practicing a healthful meditation and exercise routine.
What a world. How fortunate we are to live in a country where we are free to follow our own spiritual path. I hope we never loose our freedoms.
I had to make this doll to help raise awareness of what the Communist government in China does to their people.
