creating to the glory of God + a free printable perpetual calendar

Have you noticed how creativity is such a ‘buzzword’ today?

It’s everywhere! Blogs, Pinterest, Instagram…

Every time I see a photo of a beautiful room makeover or a super cute craft project my brain starts racing with ideas! I get so inspired to make something new.

Immediately the battle begins in my head. Should I really spend my time doing this? How important is any of this, really? My heart is torn between the steady barrage of beautiful photos that make me excited to create & the burden for deeper issues. There’s so much hurt in the world.

Can I really justify taking the time to be creative?

Does anyone else struggle with this?  I have such a desire to create, yet I really want to spend my time on things that matter most, things that will make a difference. I’ve been struggling with this battle off & on for a long time & praying for clarity.

I believe the answer is found in our intentions.

When I looked up the definition of intention I loved what it said…
“Done on purpose; deliberate.”
There are two things that the Lord has been showing me.

  • Our deep desire to create comes from God, the master creator. We are made in His image, why wouldn’t we have these passions!
  • He gave us these passions & talents to enjoy & to use them to love well. We were made to love & our lives become joyful when we use our talents to love others.
I hope to inspire you on your creative journey.

Encouraging you to enjoy the gift of creativity and to use it to love well.

Above is a download for a printable perpetual clipboard calendar. It’s one I’ve used for several years now and is a simple and pretty way to stay organized.

I’ve painted a basic wooden clipboard with chalk paint and sealed it with some Johnson’s paste wax. Super cute, easy, and inexpensive. A triple win! 😉
