Ready to feed your creative soul? This month, I'll serve up a heap o' ways to nourish that God-designed space within us that craves creativity. It's easy to think of certain people as being creative—painters, writers, sculptors, etc., but true creativity is experienced in every day life.
For instance, the way a person:
- uniquely budgets for the family
- cooks deceptively healthy foods for the kids
- spends time designing, planting, and weeding the garden
- organizes a local farmer's market, etc.
- comes up with creative ways to fix things at home
- prepares a sermon or bible study that sparks the imagination
- creates fun games for the children or grandchildren
- works efficiently and faithfully to provide for family

So with that, I'd like to welcome you to our July series, Feed Your Creativity.
On Monday's and Wednesday's you'll find a well of creative ideas and exercises waiting for you (and anyone else you'd like to share them with!) Some days will include excerpts and thoughts from Michael Card's, Scribbling in the Sand and the companion study guide. Other days will offer new Artist Dates from Julia Cameron's, The Miracle of the Artist's Dates to try. And I'll stay open to any other creative ideas God may bring my way.
I look forward to welcoming you back on Monday as we officially kick off our series. In the meantime, is there anything in particular you'd like to learn about creativity?
Biblically speaking, the making of art is not an option
but a command.
-Harold Best, quoted in Scribbling in the Sand.
