Review: The Creative Call by Janice Elsheimer


The Creative Call:
An Artist's Response to the Way of the Spirit
by Janice Elsheimer
Description:
Perhaps you're a "closet writer" who's been scribbling in journals for years. Maybe you once had a passion for playing the piano or violin--a passion that is still flickering somewhere deep inside you. You may have a knack for photography, drawing, gardening, cooking, or some other creative gift. Or you may long to express yourself creatively, but have yet to discover your unique talents.

Your creativity was meant be used. Whether you are an artist who has already identified your gifts or you believe that you have artistic talent that has never been developed, working through this book will help you grow closer to becoming the person God has designed you to be.

*LEARN TO CALL ON THE HOLY SPIRIT AS YOUR SOURCE OF INSPIRATION
* EXERCISE YOUR ARTISTIC GIFT REGULARLY AND BEGIN TO THINK OF YOURSELF AS AN ARTIST.
* DEVELOP THE HABIT OF JOURNALING AS A WAY TO REALIZE UNLOCKED CREATIVITY 


AN EIGHT-WEEK PROGRAM FOR FULLY DEVELOPING YOUR ARTISTIC GIFTS
AND ENTERING INTO A CLOSER UNION WITH GOD. INCLUDES A RETREAT GUIDE.
FOR INDIVIDUAL USE OR GROUP STUDY.


Genre:  Non-Fiction, Spiritual

My Review:
This is an amazing book!!!  So many people have moved away from or never discovered their creative outlet (and yes, we ALL have creativity running through our veins) and need direction and inspiration to get back to it.  This book is about reconnecting with that creative self and connecting with the Great Creator in the process.  When I started reading this book, I had already started the process of reconnecting to my art, but I found so much in this book that spoke to my soul.  This is a must read for anyone who wishes to connect to God through that creative part of themselves.

While I'm talking art, I want to invite you to check out mine.  I'd love to hear what you think.  Just click on the link below.  Thanks!!!
