Reading this book made me feel more alive than I have in a long time.—Sam
Laura Bartnick’s writing will make anyone change the way they look at their talents, no matter what they are.
She demonstrates, and with compelling biblical references, how our artistic soul is a breath of God, a medium in which we encounter God and bring more life into the world. I enjoyed the simplicity of style and the depth of thought. The biblical commentaries are spot on, relevant, and very inspiring. BEING CREATIVE is written in a down-to-earth, friendly style that delivers the core message with force. This book will help you understand why you have the gifts you have and how to use them. It’s a book about being connected to God as a creative and finding meaning in the work one does as a creative. This is a very inspiring read.
BEING CREATIVE: is one of the best things I have read about creativity. Here is a book that unveils the startling intersection between art and spirituality, a book about life, about work and dignity, and about God working in us. In fact, it can be read as the spirituality of the creative person, a book that brilliantly showcases God’s centrality in the creative process, demonstrating how we dance to the mystical tunes of the Creator, imitating Him in one of the aspects of our being — co-creators.
Filled with powerful insights and spiritual lessons, this book is designed to help readers — creative persons — reconnect with their craft and with themselves, and ultimately with the source of all inspiration.
Written in a friendly, warm tone, BEING CREATIVE makes the reader feel a deep sense of belonging.
The book offers a path toward fulfillment and purpose, featuring many biblical references that will help readers develop a strong awareness of the sacredness of their creative endeavors.
Laura Bartnick knows how to speak to the reader’s heart, using words that inspire and empower, and bringing readers to her point of view with compelling arguments. I enjoyed the anecdotes and how the author weaves her personal experiences into the story. If you are a creative, this book is for you. It will help you redefine why you ache to do what you are passionate about, and it will offer tools to make your work a success. It’s a must-read.
