Sneak Peak Friday...Creative Books...

I can't wait to see what other books are out there! Here are the main 3 books that have inspired me spiritually as I have followed God back into creativity:

The first: a fun way to add more creativity in your quiet times/prayer journal....Praying in Color:

A great book for all sorts of creative endeavors, whether writing, visual art, dance, etc..The Creative Call delves into what the Scripture says and reveals what the church has simply not focused on for centuries!  Plus practical sections to guide the reader to reflect on and discover their own heart towards creativity....


Making Crosses is simply so devotional and beautiful...perfect for individuals, groups, home-school, young and old...I used the idea for our homeschool group's children at an evening event (here) and they were deeply into the activity...you can read free chapters of the book and see crosses inspired by the book here.

And of course, a very inspirational book, rich in imagery:  the Bible ♥

Thank you for such sweet comments on my blog. basically I was posting my website as what was on my table because I have been "creating posts" on my blog each day as a memorial of our journey to our daughter in Ecuador. I want to go over to amazon and add each one of your books to my "wish list"!Such great titles- thank you for sharing.

Hi Cindy! Great to see what you are reading...I've heard about Praying in Color but not the one on How to Make Crosses...just goes to show you that there is a book out there for anything and everything that you could need, want or think about.
