Have you bought into a lie that you are not creative because you can’t put things on your mantlepiece with style? No one is pinning your artwork? You can’t carry a tune in a bucket? You’re just a mom/secretary/teacher/lab technician/___________?
The truth is that you were created in the heart of an infinitely creative God. In fact, you were created in His image and He makes art! Therefore, as Freeman points out, you are His poem, His masterpiece, His gift to the world.
All we do is for His glory and to show Him off, whether it is cleaning toilets or writing a sonata. Emily P. Freeman may not be huge in physical stature but the message that lies between the covers of this book is ginormous! The subtitle is,
“Uncover the art you were made to live.”
You were created to make art but you may not be so sure what that looks like. Emily would like to help you uncover it, move aside the baggage that has been placed on top, wipe off the cobwebs and help you dig it up. Deep inside you there is a masterpiece waiting to be seen by the world. Be brave, uncover it and make art!
These chapters ask some hard questions, require some soul searching and thought. You may breeze through it on a plane ride across the country but you can’t just put it aside and not let it change you. The message within longs to change you…into something you already are. You are ART!
