Influence Conference Day 2

This week I'm in Indiana for the Influence Conference and can I just say it is surely a privilege. Getting to lead the decor of the event has been somewhat overwhelming but super fun and a great opportunity. We've had so many helping hands come together to make it look fabulous, cutting paper and taping things late into the night.

I'm learning so much and taking inventory and mental notes of how to improve it all next year. But most of all I've been asking God to show me my place in this whole thing. Although I don't really identify myself as a "blogger" I do share a lot of the same desires and goals as so many women here. Feeling slightly overwhelmed by the incredible talent and consistency of these women, I'm asking,

Where do I fit?

I know God has given me influence and gifts, but how do I steward them? Do I resolve to blog twice a week or set my online shop up in a certain way? Should I have a craft that is partnering with a specific justice mission as so many do? So many questions. 

What I don't have is an answer yet but I'm asking God and I know he will answer as He is always faithful. Maybe he's been waiting for me to ask...

At church we recently finished a series studying Colossians called Deeper. It was SO good. I've read through the book before but it's been awhile and during the study the verses of each chapter just came alive. Much of the book talks about what it looks like to be a christian and Paul brings a strong challenge to "take off" the old self and "put on" the new self. I felt God challenge me in a few different areas. To bring accountability to myself (which let's face it, is basically the only way I get anything done) I decided to #scripturedoodle one of my favorite verses from the book.

And so I'm sharing it with you! This verse is great to have hanging on the walls of the house to remind us to love...especially when the kids are screaming and the house is a wreck. Happy Day!

Art Space: God Led Creativity

 Hi y'all I'm so excited to launch a fall Art Space course centered on 

God Led Creativity

Exploring what God can say to us in our artwork. I'm offering a ten week series of art classes for elementary students growing God led creativity, expressing our heart to God through artwork. 

This will be a slightly different class than those in the past. It will be less focused on the elements and principles of art and more focused on the creative and worship end of artwork. It will have a more out of the box format and will not necessarily yield lots of projects to bring home and show. I do however feel excited about this course and opening the door to creativity in worship for your children at a young age. The class will be $130/student. A price breakdown of $10 a week with a $20 supply fee per student. I will continue to offer a 10% discount to families with two students. I am capping this class at 7 students so the first seven get a spot! I’d like to start next week if possible, that would be the 17th of September. Email me if you're interested in signing up your child. 

Time: Tuesdays  3:30pm-4:30pm
Location: My house in Park Circle

Quickly I want to say thanks for letting me host these at my house. I know the location isn’t super convenient, but with the pace of being a mom of a little one working from home, this is the best win for me so thanks!
