Book Review by Kat Kennedy

This exploration of the creative life and how it is an extension of the Creator is a fascinating read. Bartnick's tone is encouraging and joyful. She taps into the fact that the creative life is one that has been given by God and that by acknowledging and accepting the gift, one can indeed enhance creativity. Definitively Christian in its ideology, it is nevertheless a work from which anyone can glean valuable information concerning the creative life. It is well-grounded in Christian theology. Bartnick is well-versed in the Bible, and readers will find a wealth of information concerning both the artistic process and scripture within the pages of her book. Christians will especially enjoy reading this interesting take on creativity, but all readers will find interesting aspects of the creative endeavor here. Whether one is a creative person or wishes to understand how creativity is tied to a higher power, there is much to learn from this work.

Welcome to the Shivoo! Creatives Mimicking the Creator by Laura Bartnick is one of the best things I have read about creativity. 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. This is a book that will help any struggling creative person understand the life that flows through their creative process and find their purpose. 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, Welcome to the Shivoo! Creatives Mimicking the Creator makes the reader feel a deep sense of belonging. The book offers a path towards fulfillment and purpose, featuring many biblical references that will help readers develop a strong awareness of the sacredness of their creative endeavors. 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.

There are many artists that create just to connect with God and become one with Him, but they somehow feel distant and not as "at one" with the Creator as they would like to be. This book helps the reader in understanding their own art, how they can be close to the Creator with just creating, and how they can gain confidence in their own art. This book does not teach you to draw or create art; it talks about how a creative person can become closer to God, enhance their faith, and become true to themselves as an artist.

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.
