Creativity at Church

Prophetic Art I like to do prophetic art during our worship time at church — sometimes dodging flags and dancers. First I pray, asking Holy Spirit what He wants me to draw and I get into my Bible and read. I always begin to see part of an image, colors and shapes but I don’t […]

I Can’t Help It

I Have to Sculpt People It’s been a while, but I had fun making this guy. I’ll do some finishing touches and wait several months before firing him. Let’s pray he doesn’t bust open in the kiln.
