About a year ago, I wrote out all of the reasons I love creativity, moreover, why I love it as an avenue to further my focus on God. As most of us know, sometimes when we try something new, doubt sets in. When it comes to art, sometimes it’s as if you’re not worthy of the breath you just took.

Then the LORD answered me and said, ‘Record the vision And inscribe it on tablets, That the one who reads it may run.
