Thankfulness Prepares The Way For Breakthrough

Thankfulness Prepares The Way For Breakthrough

Thanksgiving enables us to face our present realities in light of the promise of future breakthrough.  

The reality is that many people are facing some difficult circumstances this Holiday season.  While many are rejoicing, there are also many who are feeling hopeless, given the emotional, relational, physical, financial, and spiritual obstacles in front of them.

Creating A Holiday Story To Remember

Creating A Holiday Story To Remember

I love autumn. It reminds me of huge leaf mounds that my brothers and I would build in our front yard, and then, would kick the leaves high up in the air and dump them on each other, repeating the process over and over with sheer delight.

November brings a splash of yellows, reds, and burnt orange colors that dots the northern hemisphere where many of us live, bringing a sense of fun-filled holiday expectations and close connections.

As we spoke, healing miracles exploded throughout the crowd, as the team creatively released music, art, prophetic acts, and laughter upon the people. People were healed of back issues by looking at my painting.  Kevin, and others, were healed by doing a prophetic act for their knee injuries.  

I want to encourage you to dream and envision where the Lord will have you deposit the resource He has given you to impact the world, and bring more of Heaven to earth through your creative expressions.

There is so much to learn along the way as well, as we enjoy community with friends, and experience the wonders of His creation.

Creators of Light

Creators of Light

As children of light we get to let the God of compassion fuel us into action as we believe that who we are and what we have matters. Our creativity in the hands of God can cause a ripple effect that fills the greatest need and overcome the powers of evil.

What if there’s a song inside you for someone struggling with depression? A dance waiting to be choreographed that displays true love? What does being a child of light mean to a world looking for hope? 

Out of the Ashes

Out of the Ashes

Everywhere I go, people are talking about the fires, and the condition of their neighborhood, house, or how their family and friends made it through.  People who were total strangers have been brought together, and are engaging in heartfelt conversation.

This national disaster is something we have gone through and weathered together, and now we are committed to being “Redding Strong” together, as we begin to work at rebuilding our city, displaying the glory of God in our unified efforts.

The Fourth Man In The Fire

The Fourth Man In The Fire

Some people may think that when we are thrown into the fire we are defeated and left in despair, but when we see the 4th Man in the fire we are filled with hope for our future.

If you are going through fiery trials beyond your control, remember to look for the 4th Man in the fire, and know that He is there and will stand with you no matter what!  

And then, when you have gone through the fire with the 4th Man, you can begin to reveal Him to others through your creative expressions to bring comfort and hope to those in the fire.

Finding Our Way Home On The Fourth

Finding Our Way Home On The Fourth


I know that the freedom I have been given through my relationship with Christ is something that others need all around me. 

I am reminded that every time I write, sing, dance, paint, preach, and reach out, I am releasing spectacular fireworks of God’s goodness to heal and restore. 

We need to “discover creative ways to encourage others and to motivate them towards acts of compassion, doing beautiful works as expressions of His love"

Words Matter

Words Matter

Words are so important in how we are molded according to our destiny, which is why the Israelites gave so much attention to naming their children in the Old Testament. 

It’s incredible how we co-create with God even in birth.  God creates man in the womb, which is hidden from view, but then we get to declare identity and destiny through the names we choose when our children enter the world. 

Today, God wants to breathe life into your identity with words of truth and affirmation about your destiny. 

Be Different To Make A Difference

Be Different To Make A Difference

Most of us have had an occasion in which we were publicly ridiculed for being different in some way.  The feeling of embarrassment, humiliation, and shame that resulted taught us to avoid being different at all costs.  Our need for acceptance and approval may have even sacrificed our uniqueness to the point that we are now unable to fully express ourselves creatively.

Our true identity is expressed in our differences, not our conformity.

Over 28 countries joined us plus so many Americans from different states nationwide.

Creative Celebration That Connects Community

Creative Celebration That Connects Community

It’s crazy how communities come together through celebration.  All of heaven is still celebrating and worshipping Jesus for His triumph over the enemy, death, and sin.

All of the Angels in heaven celebrate when one person turns to Jesus (Luke 15:10).

Our responsibility is to bring heaven to earth, so let the celebration begin!

Spring Cleaning Our Creativity

Spring Cleaning Our Creativity

If you have ever seen a child weed in the garden, they tend to pull the weeds out from the top without the proper tool to get the root.  In a matter of weeks, that same weed will  start to peek out of the dirt because the roots were not removed. 

In the same way, we need tools if we are going to root out things that seek to prevent our garden growing into fruitful creativity.

Uniquely Branded For Creativity

Uniquely Branded For Creativity

You are not some ordinary lump of clay, but you carry the breath and brand of Creator God, being from a Heavenly source — God, Himself.  

Not only has God breathed His life into you, He has also made you creatively unique, and is proud of the way you are created.

He has made you with dreams, desires, and gifts because you are His delight.  He doesn’t want you to try to fit into someone else’s mold or destiny, but wants you to be proud of the way He has created you.

5 Creative Ways To Get Through Adversity

I want to encourage you to let God in to your pain and let Him speak creatively to you through what others create and how you can create.  

Redemption and restoration is a promise you can creatively declare today for whatever traumas you are facing today or in the future, knowing that my testimony can be your testimony, no matter how dark your season is presently.

5 Practical Tips for Creative Success In Your Art

I believe it is time for Kingdom-minded believers, who follow the footsteps of Jesus, to bring our creativity into the forefront, so that people can see the Good News.  

If Jesus used parables to lead people to truth, if Paul’s handkerchiefs healed the sick, and if Moses’ bronze serpent staff brought people healing who looked at it, then what are we waiting for?
