Living an ART filled life...“Creativity is a God-given ability to take something ordinary and make it into something special. It is an openness to doing old things new ways…The creative spirit is part of our heritage as children of the One who created all things. And nurturing our creativity is part of our responsibility as stewards of God’s good gifts.” - Emilie Barnes, The Spirit of Loveline

Doodle 101 / Bee Brave

Doodle101BeeBraveSueCarroll

I had trouble sleeping so I got up to Doodle.  My friend Jenn keeps coming to my mind and heart.  She asked me to pray for she and her husband as they step out in faith to speak in front of a crowded arena today.

This would make anyone shake in their boots!

…and to think, just a few short years ago, it took everything Jenn had in her, to step foot in our church for Bible Study.  God met her where she was with all the love of a GOOD GOOD Father to provide everything she needed.  He has grown her faith, given her strength, patience, confidence, wisdom, peace, JOY… She IS and OVERCOMER in Christ.

Jenn’s great God even restored her marriage and gave she and her husband KINGDOM work to do…TOGETHER.

I am praying this morning that God’s glory would be seen through their story…I would pray for them to be brave…but compared to the paralyzing fear of judgement, rejection, & not measuring up as she walked into Bible Study for the first time, standing before a crowded arena is a walk in the park…BECAUSE NOW…

 SHE KNOWS

Who she is & WHOSE she is.

I’m so proud of you Sister…You’re one of the bravest.

“Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the LORD your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.” -Deuteronomy 31:6

“To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.”  -Colossians 1:27

Bee Brave…through Christ you CAN do ALL things:)

    I would like to thank you with all my heart for showing us how to do the different designs. You have brought back a desire for drawing that I haven’t had in a lone time. God Bless.

    • Twanya, that is the reason I do it:) It made my day to read your post. I pray you are finding time to “dwell” with the Lord and that you are enjoying the creative process! Bless you:) xo

  • I would like to know if you have a book with your designs or I may print them to help teach the young girls at church that are learning to journal. Please let me know. I have ordered an Inspire Bible, but right now I am start in a sketch book. Thank you again for your inspiration and God Bless.

    • I do not, but PLEASE print away! I have such a heart for young girls and am so encouraged to hear about your efforts to pour into them! Starting in a sketch book is GREAT! I start all my classes that way. If you have time, it’s nice to keep a separate journal/planner to create in as well as your Bible. xo
