    I am soooo inspired by art, but I’m not as artistically gifted as I wish.

    He has given me the ability to tell stories and connect to others through writing.

    God’s also gifted me with ideas, so I’m always thinking up some new thing (I only act on a few though).

    This would be a great read.

    I feel like God has gifted me to write.

    I feel God has gifted me to write. Also, I feel God has gifted me to lead, which I’ve learned from Gary is an art form as well.

    I enjoy organizing and putting together music, Scripture, words, and prayer so that everything flows together thematically and worshipfully. I enjoy seeing things come together–I don’t play any instuments (yet), but I love watching each part fit in its place–voices and instruments. And I enjoy writing and capturing ideas in words in a structured, yet creative way. I also enjoy designing simple things (fliers, brochures, etc.) on the computer–and improving other’s designs and ideas.

    God has given me a creative mind. I can come up with the some of the greatest design ideas all day long, but I’m lacking when it comes to expressing the ideas. I don’t see myself as artistic at all.

    I am always inspired by art no matter what forms in come in. I am very expressive when it comes to artistic forms. Currently I am a freelancing graphic designer who wants to go into web design and particularly advertising.

    I have a philosophy about art. My philosophy about art is: “No matter where you go, there will always be art. We are considered art because our Creator created us. I believe not enough people realize where everything comes from. With the many languages such as English, Spanish, French, and German spoken to me it can be hard to grasp their meanings. But through everything, everything is derived from art.”

      And I strongly believe that God has given me the talent and gift of sharing and ministering the story of Jesus through art whether I am the one creating the art or the other people are. I just want to show people how much of an insight it is to come in contact with the beauty of what is around us in rembrance of just how beautiful, magnificent, and how wonderful our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is. I love the thought of just thinking about it.
