Show Notes

“A dream without a plan is just a wish.” - Katherine Paterson, author

Do you ever feel like the dreams that you hold so dearly in your heart are just never, ever going to come to pass?  That no matter how hard you work, things just aren’t panning out the way you want them to?

When this happens, it’s easy to give up, to downgrade our dream to just a wish - because we don’t have a plan, to use Katherine Paterson’s metaphor.  But here’s the thing - God has a plan for ALL our dreams!  He has architected our lives so carefully and beautifully… but on His schedule, not ours!  We may not always understand God’s timing, but we must have faith in His promise - that He has a divine design for our lives and that He’s working all things together for our good!

The perspective shift that comes when you begin to respond to and encounter the Word of the Lord is exactly what led me to start the Created to Thrive Artist Mentoring Program.  When God called me to raise up an army of artists to reveal His glory, I had no idea what His plan was for this dream - and I never could’ve dreamed on that night in 2009 that He would’ve taken me on this particular journey.  He sure is full of surprises!

If you’re searching for a perspective shift, to more clearly understand God’s plan for your dreams and your art, I hope you’ll join us for the Artist Rise Up Masterclass + Art Challenge!  The first of the 5 masterclass sessions starts on September 20th, but we’re already having a blast in the private Facebook group, where participants are sharing their stories and their art with folks from all over the world! 

The Masterclass + Art Challenge is free, but you do need to register at the link below so we can send you all the details!
