Creative Journaling During Lent
Air Date February 13, 2013
How do you access your creative side? And how could that connect you to the observance of Lent? On this Midday Connection, artist Tamara Peterson joins us to talk about ways to engage your creative side as she opens us up to “Creative Art Journaling”. As we engage our creative side, let’s ask God to help us use it to connect with Him.
Tamara also created a group on Flickr to share photos of your creative journaling pages during Lent.
Tamara has her undergraduate degree from the University of North Texas in Communication Design, she has worked at Fossil, Fellowship Church and now freelances from home. Three years ago, she started a ministry called Safe Blankets that gives handmade quilts to children in crisis situations. Since that time they have given over 150 quilts to children in the Chicago area. Tamara has been teaching art and journaling classes for the past 2 years at women’s retreats, various small groups and even at her own studio. In that time she has taught almost 200 women this way of connecting with God and discovering themselves. She lives in Skokie, IL with her husband and son.
