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 thoughts: This is a great book for mothers of all ages! I enjoyed all the stories in this book and feel like it is a wonderful, easy read for busy women. It's a fun call to pursue your talents and make a home beautiful. I feel like I especially needed this book, since we have been doing a huge remodeling project with our home and have only just gotten to the point where I feel like I can actually decorate and put the little touches on our house that make it more of a home. This book helped to inspire me.;)
I received this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest review.
