Most artists and craftspeople – even “professional” ones – have periods of self-doubt, so don't feel like you are alone! But what gets me through the dry times is the fact that I know I was made to create. God put the passion to create in me, and I know when I am making things, I'm expressing his love for me. When I am secure in his love, I am secure in my art.

Trust me, I've been fighting self-doubt for three years, but I know now that this #artworship is the path God has chosen for me and he has this CRAZY LOVE for me and also FOR YOU!!! So, I can tell you that I know it's easier said than done.

That's why I'm so excited about Truth Scrap, an online event that is exploring the intersection between faith and art. Seven instructors (including me!) are offering a glimpse into not only HOW they create their artwork, but WHY. From Bible journaling to mixed-media, you'll learn details about creating projects from the heart up.

TRUTH SCRAP 2015: Intersecting Faith and Art

In this one-day event, you'll learn new skills and techniques and discover fantastic ideas for gaining more confidence in your artwork and crafting, and for sharing your faith through your creations. This is truly a one-of-a-kind event, and I hope you'll join in.

Here's an example of what my class will look like. I recently got to do an art piece for the cover of my church's quarterly magazine. Talk about nervous nelly and self-doubt. You have no idea how nervous I was, LOL! It was fun to see one of my art pieces outside of my journal and I love how God spoke through me in creating. It was truly art worship with the confidence and reminder of God's amazing LOVE for me and FOR YOU! John 3:16

  1. Yes, I often doubt myself in my artwork. And I think it happens to everyone who is associated with the arts. It is because we are all not perfect artists. No one can call himself a perfect artist. But my friend John is perfect in his dissertation writing service. I have never seen him doubt his capabilities. He can write your dissertations in a very well manner.
