Title: From the Pit to the Palace | Tom Varano | Episode #093


Tom Varano is a motivational speaker, painter, and a man of great faith. Through his company, Emotion Into Art, Tom presents an extremely unique Speed Painting and Inspirational speaking performance. This is a nationally recognized show with the goal of inspiring students of all ages to not only follow their dreams but to follow them with PASSION! The performance entertains and captures the students’ attention, while the microphone allows Tom to speak a message of hope and encouragement into their lives.

After launching his own photography business at the age of 19, Tom found himself inside a church for the first time in a long time on a photography assignment when the Holy Spirit connected with his heart, and he was instantly changed. This moment helped Tom begin healing from the abuse and shame of his childhood.

During the show, Tom shares a series of stories that you must hear to believe. From answered prayers and unlikely heroes to acts of sacrifice and lightning bolt moments from the Lord.    

On Blessed are the Joke Makers, the Dudes must take on the persona of a spoiled rotten kid to address the prompt, “I got seven deadly sins, but ____ ain’t one.”
