Life Creative: Inspiration for Today’s Renaissance Mom(Kregel, September 2016)
What was God thinking when He created you creative and then gave you children?
Creative moms often feel as though they must lay their passions down. But God had something special in mind for the creative woman during this intense season of mothering.
In this Pinterest age of handcrafted children’s parties, Instagram photos of beautifully decorated homes, and blogs filled with poetry and prose, it is clear that we are in the midst of a brand new artistic renaissance. Not one born in Italian cathedrals or Harlem jazz clubs, but rather in kitchens, nurseries, and living rooms around the world. Mothers, working in the cracks and crevices of each hectic day, are adorning the world with their gifts, and they’re showing all of us the beauty of this Life Creative.
In this book, you’ll learn:
—Why the world needs your art
—How this Life Creative begins at home
—When art can turn a profit
—Your part in this modern day Renaissance
Life Creative paints the stories of moms, just like you, who are fitting their inspired lives into the everyday, ordinary places of motherhood. Women like home decorator Melissa Michaels and jewelry designer Lisa Leonard, author Angie Smith, recording artist Ellie Holcomb, and many more.
My opinion: this book is just the inspirational book one needs to nourish the soul and revive the heart. Being a Mom is tough and it is easy to get discouraged and down especially when you are creative and feel like that gets lost in the busyness of being a Mom. This book gently reminds you that you can still live a creative life and was to fully embrace that.
I like how encouraging and edifying this book is, encouraging one to be all that God has called them to be.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
