Life Creative extends a hand across the lonely miles of motherhood, to every woman who feels like she’s lost herself in a sea of diapers and dishes. It breathes beauty and life and purpose into the everyday servant-hood of mothering, and reminds us that it’s up to us to seize those very ordinary moments and turn them into something beautiful. I have never read anything like this, and as both a mother and artist, I endorse it fully. The world needs Life Creative.
This is a message that hungering, hurting, hoping hearts need! “We’re here to tell you it is a worthy use of your life: both the grand offering of motherhood and the smaller gifting of self-expression.” These words from the opening section make you want to read the whole book.”
Wendy and Kelli’s words will support, encourage, and cheer you on in the art and adventure of mothering.
I am breathless. These are the things I believe but didn’t have words to articulate...but my soul knows it is truth. I’m going back to read it all again, slowly.
“Mothers carry deep within them an innate desire to create beauty around them—whether it’s with shape or color, words or song. In Life Creative, Wendy and Kelli come alongside the artistic soul inside us all with wisdom and insight on how to care for our families while also caring for the artist within. ...an absolute must-read for creative moms.
Our creative lives are a dance — fluid and ever changing — rather than one stationary, perfect balance of family and faith. For years I thought creativity was limited to those on stage or at an easel, but a new day had dawned. Life Creative has painted an all-inclusive picture, inviting everyone to embrace their part in this present Renaissance.
As the mom of 3 kids, I need the wisdom of other moms, but most, I need their companionship and gentle nod of understanding. Wendy and Kelli have offered this in the pages of this book in the most precious of ways: they’ve taken our hand, looked us in the eye, and given us the gentle nod to help us move forward. Life Creative lets me be myself and find my best mothering, there. Kudos, ladies. This book is a big exhale, a dear friend, and a powerful teacher.
As a mom of two wild boys and a new baby girl, I am thankful for authentic moms like Wendy and Kelli that welcome women into this creative world in a manner that breaks down all barriers of comparison and the idea of measuring up. What a blessing to always leave their space feeling refreshed and inspired.
