The Spirit-led Artist: Part 7

Where can the Christian artist go to live this exciting life of creative faith? There are two broad levels of Christian art: professional and amateur.

Better Than Eavesdropping

Sometimes, we don’t have to make all the wrong choices before we make the right one. Sometimes, we can learn from someone who’s been around the block before.

The Spirit-led Artist: Part 5

The role of the artist has always been a source of discomfort for those in charge of the Church. Artists are not good little soldiers who love to march in line.

Painting My Freedom

We are all created in the image of God. He is creative, so we have that ability to create as well, though your method may be different from mine.

The Creator has made us to be creators as well. Madeliene L’Engle says that the creation of the universe is still going on and we have been called to do our part in it.

We chase the high of other people’s opinions because, truthfully, we doubt our self-worth so much that we are starved for recognition.

Winds of Change

What I love most about Kingdom Winds is the emphasis to call Christians out of hiding. To empower them to live in their identity as creators and let God and others experience the gifts they’ve been given.

The Cure for Creative Insecurity

You understand that your ideas come from the Creator of the universe and that they were given to you so that you could share them with the world.

I Was Never the Quarterback

Schools highlight quarterbacks to represent athleticism, but He never limits His superstars. God wants all of us out on the field wearing His jersey so that His glory, His creativity can be seen.

A 7th-Grade Art Lesson

My eyebrows sank in disappointment, and the perfectionist inside me started to clench her fists. What do you mean, What happens if I disagree?

The Power of Failure: Part 2

We must first identify the enemy. Once you know what it is, you can face it head on and it can no longer have power over you.
