Our success driven culture dictates a good deal of our behaviors and this stretches most of us to our physical and emotional limits, leaving little or no time for creative pursuits. Consequently, time, or should I say, the lack thereof, is one of the biggest hindrances people have in becoming creative. This can change.

WHAT I'M WORKING ON NOW
I've changed my focus from part-time blogger to full-time mystery writer. The process of taking a thought and turning it into a story is both compelling and captivating. One of my favorite parts of writing is that it can be changed and fixed, which isn't always the case when it comes to my watercolor paintings. My first novel, The Photographer, is complete.
"When an anonymous caller demands an early morning photo shoot of an abandoned building on Chestnut Street, mysterious images appear in Parker Jackson’s film and set him on a journey to find a missing teen; where he not only discovers the horrors of why she ran, but runs into troubles of his own."
Thank you to all my beta readers who challenged me to make my story better.
Hopefully, it won’t be long before I find a publisher. I’ll keep you posted.
This building in its abandon condition, seen above and to the left, below, was my original muse for my fictional novel.
When I visited Chestnut Street in Philadelphia, PA, last summer, I found the building completely renovated.

It’s of utmost importance that we share theGospel of Jesus Christ with those around us. This is not always easy, but Pro 11:30 tells us, "The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that wins souls is wise." My desire, with this blog, and through my book, is to give you tools that will help you live out your salvation and encourage you to find ways to share your faith. Using creative outlets is a great way to open doors of communication, often presenting opportunities to witness.
Arleen Jennings was our guest speaker for our Fall Weekend Retreat. Friday evening she laid a foundation with truths from God’s Word and how these truths had worked into and through her life’s experiences, especially in the hard times. Her delivery was very similar to that of Beth Moore’s if you’re familiar with her Bible Studies.
Saturday morning she encouraged us to use our God-given, creative talents as part of God’s design to give us an outlet for the stresses of life as well as our own need to create because we are, after all, children of ‘The Creator.’ There are many reasons God created us to be creative.
Arleen is a gifted speaker with a special anointing of the Lord on her.
