Quiet times to talk with Jesus, lots of laughter, and a meaningful message to remind us who we are filled a recent weekend away at beautiful Carolina Point in Brevard, NC. Thank you so much to Zoweh and The Deepening Weekend for having me as part of the conference team. What a treat it was to lead the creative sessions during the free time!
The nature of art tends to be highly introspective, so I don’t often get the chance to work creatively with others. Having the opportunity to encourage others in their own creativity doesn’t happen nearly as often as I would like; therefore, teaching the two groups of ladies was most definitely a joy and the highlight of my own weekend.
The creative session named Time Alone with God Journal Cover Design encouraged each person to create a collage/mixed media journal cover that was unique to them. Each lady chose elements for her cover which were meaningful to her, her unique story, her aesthetics, or in the way God was moving in her life.
In addition to the beautiful designs created, the way in which everyone helped each other, shared ephemeral, and offered encouragement was truly beautiful. Thank you everyone for sharing your stories and why you chose certain elements as well as your words of appreciation and your words of encouragement to me.
It was two incredible afternoons of being reminded of doing life in community even creating in community. What a wonderful way to fill a creative well!
Check out Zoweh and their events to learn about the more God has in store for you. Also, check out some of the journal cover designs created by the ladies in attendance.

I'm an artist working in acrylic and mixed media. I love looking for the seen and the unseen by exploring matters of the heart. My one of a kind works of art are in the style of expressionism, representational art, and inspirational art. All of my works of art share in the qualities of redemptive art.
