Arleen Jennings came to speak at our Ladies Tea in March. Many of the women present were in the midst of reading her book on creativity. We were all blessed by the words that she shared with us that night on how we were made to be creative and the need to practice our creativity. Several times throughout her talk I could feel that it wasn’t Arleen speaking but the Spirit of God through her. The message was exactly what we needed to hear and met us on a personal level right where we are at. Arleen would tell stories of her journey to creativity that were very touching and I appreciated the way she was willing to take the risk and reveal her heart to us. We all were ministered to that night.
