285 - Walking Through Life's Seasons with Grace: A Conversation with Jan Lewis
Show Notes

Jesus said that it rains on the just and unjust alike, and our ability to walk through the seasons of life - with grace, with faith, and with a “yes” in our hearts - really defines how we experience life and how we're able to walk in the goodness of God.

One of the people who I've had the great privilege of the last 4+ years to watch do this very thing is Jan Thoreen Lewis, who has been part of our Created to Thrive Mentoring Program and is in our Mastery Program.  Jan has walked through some pretty tough stuff in these last few years - health challenges with her husband, her business changing, moving - stuff that would make most of us throw up our hands. 

And yet, in the middle of all that, Jan has continued to point her heart to Jesus, to renew her mind to the truth, and give God her “yes”, even when it's not been easy.  I'm super excited to bring your story to you today because I know no matter where you are today - whether you're walking through an incredible season or through a challenging season - Jan's perspective on the journey that we all walk is really going to be a big encouragement to you.

You know what else makes these difficult seasons a little easier?  Surrounding yourself with encouraging, supportive people who understand what you’re going through - and that’s what you’ll find in the Artist Rise Up Masterclass + Art Challenge!  We’ll have live teachings and times of worship, a daily art challenge, lots of prizes, and just a great time for fellowship, connection, and learning with artists of different media from all over the world! The fun officially starts on September 20th, but join now and you’ll get early access to the private Facebook group!
