Many 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.

As 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.

Oh 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.
