As a little girl, I loved to paint, draw, sing, play the keyboard, and write poetry, but as I got older, the weight of my career and family responsibilities took over my life. Somewhere along the way, I set these means of creative expressions aside. It felt as though I was suffocating without them.
This may have happened to you, too.
With the support and encouragement of my husband, I left behind my career as a public school teacher and launched out on a new creative path in 1998. That’s also when my speaking ministry began. Iʼve never regretted the decision and have stood amazed at the way the LORD has guided me step by step along the way.
My early exit from my first career has been an unforgettable spiritual journey as Iʼve watched the Lord lead me to dust off my old art supplies and sheet music and to “refire” creatively. It has changed my life.
I hope my blog posts encourage you to do the same if you’re in that position as well, ready to create or design or compose again. Ready to be REcreative.
