Laurie Jones5 Stars Out Of 5August 16, 2007Laurie JonesMany times books having to do with artistic creativity are very New Age but this book is not. It is very inspiring and very biblical. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is struggling with being an artist of any kind. My talent, I learned, is God-given and I need to express myself in the way He created me. I praise God for speaking to me through this wonderful book. I have created much art from the inspiration the Holy Spirit gave me while reading it.
Evelyn McCurdy5 Stars Out Of 5March 6, 2002Evelyn McCurdyAs a painter who had hit a dry spell, this book, The Creative Call, has helped me to rethink the whole process of "art making". I now see each painting as a gift, a "love note" from God. I also see both the process and the finished work as an act of service, a means of worship, once I have committed that work to the LORD (Prov 16:3) and have opened up "to the gentle leading of the Holy Spirit" (p161). More than ever, I see myself as a vessel, an instrument for God to use for His creative expression. And, as the author writes, I too have begun to see my painting as "a pathway to a closer relationship with God, not as a glorification of myself" (p65). Janice's clear and insightful writing thoughtfully guides the artist (and would-be artist) to a new place - a place of pure gratitude and love for God and for the gift, which He has given.
Don Pape5 Stars Out Of 5October 1, 2001Don PapeOh to start over again!!Whether you are an energetic sixteen year-old or an octogenarian, embrace THE CREATIVE CALL. This is a wonderful cry for us all to follow our Creator God in the quest for beauty - whether in the garden, the kitchen or on the potters wheel. Thank you Janice for a great reminder to embrace creativity as an act of obedience.
