Seven Suggestions for Living a Creative Life


Do you consider yourself to be creative? You should. Poet Luci Shaw explains why:


“We who believe we bear God’s image must realize that the image includes the capacity to imagine and create, because God is himself an imaginative Creator.”


All day every day, every one of us relies on our creative capacities to resolve complex relational issues, pull together dinner on a budget, or fig

The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson

Clear rating
Brilliant. I cannot imagine how much time Wilkerson spent researching and crafting this amazing book. I only wish there were photographs of the main characters.

Companions in the Darkness by Diana Gruver
Rate this book
Clear rating
As author Diana Gruver reminds us, the church as a whole and far too many individual Christians feel uncomfortable or ambivalent about those who battle depression. Often, these men and women are dismissed, deemed too sad, or worse, blamed for their d ...more

Talking Back to Purity Culture by Rachel Joy Welcher

Clear rating
In the last five to ten years, there have been a number of books written about the damaging effects of the Christian Purity Culture. There's a predictability about them that typically includes testimonies about the harm it has done, detailing of faul ...more

One Degree of Freedom by Taryn R. Hutchison

Well-written, YA novel with lots of levels. Hutchinson is an engaging writer and has created an intriguing plot with nuanced characters. (The female characters are strong and smart.) The novel takes place in Romania just before the fall of communism, ...more

How Proust Can Change Your Life by Alain de Botton
Rate this book
Clear rating
Don't take the title seriously. Did not like this book at all. Felt ironically self-important even as it poked fun of Proust's self-important work. (Or maybe I just wanted my life to be changed mid pandemic, post election nonsense by reading a book?)

Fix It with Food by Michael Symon

I really like Symon and this book does have some great recipes. My gripe is that he promotes it as a cookbook that addresses autoimmune issues and inflammation. Which is kinda does but the recipes are not by any means all auto-immune compliant. There ...more

I Am Restored by Lecrae Moore
Rate this book

I Am Restored details Lecrae's decision to no longer do the bidding of white evangelicals. Deeply appreciate his honesty and his commitment to press into the many ways he was wounded/traumatized as a black man. If more of us had this kind of integrit ...more

C.S. Lewis
“The Christian says, 'Creatures are not born with desires unless satisfaction for those desires exists. A baby feels hunger: well, there is such a thing as food. A duckling wants to swim: well, there is such a thing as water. Men feel sexual desire: well, there is such a thing as sex. If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world. If none of my earthly pleasures satisfy it, that does not prove that the universe is a fraud. Probably earthly pleasures were never meant to satisfy it, but only to arouse it, to suggest the real thing. If that is so, I must take care, on the one hand, never to despise, or to be unthankful for, these earthly blessings, and on the other, never to mistake them for the something else of which they are only a kind of copy, or echo, or mirage. I must keep alive in myself the desire for my true country, which I shall not find till after death; I must never let it get snowed under or turned aside; I must make it the main object of life to press on to that country and to help others to do the same.”
C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
