Happy Friday, friends! In honor of kicking off the Bloom book club selection, A Million Little Ways: Uncover the Art You Were Made to Live, I asked my friend Jennifer from Studio JRU to post here on The Mom Creative.
Jennifer is such a talented artist. I have her art in my home and am thankful for the ways God uses her. You must check out her shop (read to the end of the post for a special coupon!). Also, her husband is retired through the Army and 100% disabled through the VA. It has been a very tough month financially for them because of the shutdown and checks not being paid on time, so purchasing from her shop is also a way to support their family in thanks for serving our country.
I am so excited to guest post here for my sweet friend, Jessica, and talk a little bit about creativity in my life.
I have always been creative. From the time I was little, I was drawing and painting and setting up elaborate doll photo shoots with my sister. I can not imagine my life without art and creativity… because this is who He made me to be. This is my gift from Him. This is what I am meant to share with others. When I saw art as the gift it is, with gratitude I could say YES to God and fully embrace the gift.
I see creating as a way of worshiping Him and reflecting Him back to the world. I want to serve Him. He shaped me with what I have to offer and my offering is my art… done in love. I do it for His greater glory. And what I hope for is that people are able to see Christ through me and my work.
God has given us each special gifts… I hope you say YES to yours!
I am grateful to be able to share my art with you and I would love to offer all of you a special discount to my shop! Use code ‘creativity’ at checkout for 20% off your order!
