MADE {Bravely Exploring God-centered Creativity}

I have been outrageously blessed.  Yes you read that right.  A friend recently shared that she will be attending the MADE e-Course.  I followed the link on her Facebook page and read the blog posts with longing.  Oh how I would love the opportunity to do something like that I thought.  My Heavenly Father heard my hearts cry. An hour later a little note popped into my inbox saying here is a gift for you to attend {MADE} this year.

Wow speak about being overwhelmed by the goodness of God and the generosity of a friend. 

What is it ?
Made is a new e-course of over four months of weekly workshops, exercises, and prompts from 12 inspirational instructors.

Do YOU need to be artistic ?
No you do not in the traditional sense of the word.  My drawing ability extends as far as stick figures where people are concerned but I love to write. I have collected plenty of ideas on Pinterest to attempt some art journaling but I have not gathered up the courage to attempt it.  So I'm hoping that with the support and encouragement from the {MADE} team I will finally get pen to paper.  I also love to take photographs.  I am really excited by this opportunity and hope that you my friends will join me to take a journey of discovery.

  1. Thank you so much, Chareen! I love how God (through sweet Jo!) provided for the longings of your heart. I'm hearing that from quite a few people in Made that have received a gifted spot -- that they connected immediately but were unsure if they could swing it, only to have the money or a spot be given out of nowhere. I love how God hears and holds these smaller seemingly "less important" (but perhaps not really) cries of our heart so tenderly. Grateful to get to know you better.

    1. You are welcome Beth. Loved getting to know you via your blog. Thank you for sharing your story.
