Devotional Creativity Retreat
I am so excited to invite you to the first ever Devotional Creativity Retreat weekend at my personal studio in Seven Lakes NC.
What is Devotional Creativity?
Devotional Creativity is a journey that God has been leading me on to discover the power of creative visual arts to deepen my intimate connection to the heart of the Father.
God created us to be creative, so it makes sense that He would love to meet with us right in that place where we are exercising our creativity. So why not incorporate our personal creative practice into our regular devotional practice. Using art making as a means to respond to scripture and devotional reading is a way to etch God’s word onto our hearts.
I want to share this journey with you in a two day retreat here in my studio in North Carolina. We will spend time considering scripture and devotional reading and spend time in worship with music, then we will respond creatively in journals that we have made specifically for this adventure. Please join us for this discovery in how to incorporate creative visual arts into your daily practice to help you go deeper into intimate connection with the Father.
9AM-4PM each day. Lunch will be provided on both days.
Our theme will be on creativity as a devotion. We will each make our own journals during the morning session on Friday. The rest of the sessions we will be digging into scripture and other devotional materials and working in our new journals in response to the devotion and the leading of the Holy Spirit.
I will provide most materials. Attendees should bring an apron or smock, paintbrushes, scissors, and a paper trimmer. Items that are not required, but you may bring if you have special things you want to use include; stencils. stamps, stamp pads, papers and embellishments. Keep in mind that space is limited, so please do not bring a lot of supplies. I will have plenty to share. I will also have some special materials available for purchase.
Lunch will be provided on Friday and Saturday. Breakfast and dinner are on your own.
Lodging is on your own. I will provide information about local hotels and also close by rental homes if anyone is interested in sharing a house. If you want to start researching ahead, my studio is in Seven Lakes, NC and the closest towns with hotels are Southern PInes, NC and Pinehurst, NC. There are a couple of AirBNB homes in Seven Lakes, and quite a few in Pinehurst. Pinehurst and Southern Pines are about a 15 minute drive to the studio. Hopefully we can do some carpooling.
