This 31 day interactive devotional was all it promised to be and more. The devotional content was God centered, challenging, thought provoking, and encouraging. My relationship with Christ has grown in ways I did not realize were missing until I started this book. My understanding of who I am in Him has increased my joy and my creativity. The creative challenges issued each day were never easy, but always fulfilling. Each assignment not only stretched my creativity, it pushed me out of my comfort zone in a way that was rewarding and taught me much about myself and my God. I cannot remember what caused me to buy this book, but I am ever so grateful I did. Everyone can not only learn from this book but grow as well. I cannot possibly recommend it any higher.
Read this book if you are a creative. Wait, what? You don't think you are a creative? Jenny Randle begs to differ. Don't we often balk at the idea that we are creative? Don't we all have excuses for why we can't be called creative? Courageous Creatives invites us each to peer within, to see the creative part that we have lost sight of , that place where we confidently revelled in as little kids. Written by a creative for creatives..(psst...That's you! That's me!)... Jenny will kindly and boldly lead you to a new place of identity and freedom with the Most Creative One of all, God! Let your creative muscles be stretched. Let your creativity be cultivated afresh. Leap into the interactive moments in this vibrant, short, to-the-point devotional. So you still don't think you are a creative? I dare you to let Jenny Randle show you otherwise! Thanks to you Harvest House for the ARC copy of this book. This is my honest opinion about this book.
Courageous Creative is a win-win! You will grow in your relation with the Lord and strengthen your creative identity through this 31 day devotional. Jenny writes in a warm & inviting, "I want her as a friend!" style but also lovingly challenges you to step out of your comfort zone (think Momma' Bird helping her babies out of the nest). The daily challenges are fun and will stretch you everyday to embrace your unique God-given creative style. Courageous Creative Christian - let's do this!
Have you ever felt creative and didn’t know how to challenge yourself? This 31 day interactive devotional gives you just that. A challenge every day to further your mind and creativity levels. It’s fun. It’s hilarious. It takes no time! 10 minutes out of your day to write, draw, act, and more. Grab a friend and do it together. Trust me, it’s not something you want to miss out on.
There are many things that I love and appreciate about Courageous Creative, but I only will share 5 of those things with you. First, the book itself is beautifully designed. The devotional content is not overwhelming but ties in exceptionally well with the daily exercises which are designed to help you as the reader grow in your creativity and stretch your imagination. Second, the book is called a "devotional." I see it more as an interactive experience. It's engaging content. So take the time to do the exercise. I did several of these fun exercises with my 8-year-old daughter (see pics). Which brings me to my next point. Third, as a parent who desires to teach his children to know and love God and others I appreciate just how intentional the author is in reinforcing essential truths concerning the creative nature of God and we can use our creativity to glorify God and serve others. Fourth, this book isn't just for adults. Kids can enjoy it as well. My daughter is having a blast with the exercises, and we get to do them together! When my book arrived in the mail, she said, "Dad, this is MY book too! You can't do this without me!" Finally, I appreciate the price point and the fact this would make for a fun gift for just about anyone! Buy one for yourself and a friend...or two!
