5 Ways To Be A Creative Change Agent

5 Ways To Be A Creative Change Agent

We all have countless people who have fought for us to enjoy so many creative things because they took a risk- so let’s do the same for those who are right beside us or behind us!

We are part of God’s family and He wants creatives to become the influencers that shape history.

The Profound Impact of Vulnerability in our Creative Process

The Profound Impact of Vulnerability in our Creative Process

Being vulnerable with God and others allows us to care for ourselves with the same love and compassion that He does.

Psalm 139 already gives us the understanding of how He knit us together in our mother’s womb for a creative purpose that we alone can fulfill.  I pray that you become vulnerable and open with His pruning, so that you can see what’s behind the lies or behavior that has stunted you from abundant living.

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? 

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.

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.

5 Practical Tips for Creative Success In Your Art

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?  

The Art Of Dreaming

The Art Of Dreaming

We can literally dream our way to our destiny.  Our dreams can change us, and the world around us.

Helen Keller observed that, “The most pathetic person in the world is someone who has sight but no vision.”

Dreaming is simply envisioning the possibilities for the impossible to become possible.

Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream and changed the world.

Eleanor Roosevelt said, “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”

Walt Disney said, “If you can dream it you can do it.” He also believed that, “All of our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.” 

The Confidence That Creates Miracles

The Confidence That Creates Miracles

We were in Africa and had just witnessed an entire church get healed of all kinds of diseases. It was like straight out of Acts. My eyeballs questioned the miracles I saw. Medically impossible things happening by the minute. When we were done that night I looked at my friend Rex Crain and said, "Wow, that was amazing!" 

He looked me straight in the eye and said, "Annette, you can do everything I can do. You have the same Jesus living inside you."

Creating in the Midst of Conflict, Busyness, and Difficulty

All of us face various difficulties, challenges, and obstacles that we have to navigate throughout the process of fulfilling our creative destiny.  

The world, with its many pressures, family life, jobs, personal struggles, and other outside pressures can take a toll on our desire to move forward to achieve our creative dreams.

Kingdom creators are real people with real problems and struggles in every sphere of life.

Sharing God’s Love Through Destiny Cards

Sharing God’s Love Through Destiny Cards

A lot of people have responded to our previous blog “A Christmas Critique of Destiny Cards

Many of you may not be familiar with why I originally came up with the name “Destiny Cards”.  In fact, some people have accused me of simulating tarot cards, and that I somehow endorse the practices of those who give “readings” through tarot cards. 
This is a ridiculous accusation, and nothing could be further from the truth!
So, I wanted to clarify my beliefs and what I intended to mean by the word “Destiny Cards.”  

Why Art is Important

Why Art is Important

One of the innate qualities in us as humans is that we want to hold on to the meaningful moments of our lives, and creativity is an amazing vehicle to do so.  How many of us start taking pictures and video of our newborn as soon as they peek their head from the womb, capturing every movement, smile, and developmental step.

What if you didn’t think about what others thought when you drew?  What if you sang the way you are wired without trying to compare your voice to someone else?
What if you really liked yourself?

It’s time to free your mind from living life self-conscious and just enjoy your originality and “like” the way you have been designed to be!
