"Your habits in the short term impact your calling in the long term."
“But unless we are creators we are not fully alive. What do I mean by creators? Not only artists, whose acts of creation are the obvious ones of working with paint or clay or words. Creativity is a way of living life, no matter our vocation or how we earn our living. Creativity is not limited to the arts, or having some kind of important career.”
"You’re valid. Step up. Bring what you’ve got. Don’t you dare hold back. Not cringing back, not with arrogant pride, with sane humility bring your stuff. Other people need it."
"Let's start seeing creativity as an investment rather than a cost."
“The bigger the change we hope for, the longer we must be willing to invest, work for, and wait for it.”
“Since we were made to glorify God, worship happens when someone is doing exactly what he or she was made to do.”
“If the opening chapters of Genesis portray God as a creative artist, then it only stands to reason that the people he made in his image will also be artists. Art is an imaginative activity, and in the act of creating, we reflect the mind of our Maker.”
