I love taking what I have and trying to recycle or repurpose it. I spent my childhood watching the women in my family do that very thing. Lack of money or resources didn’t hinder them from creating beautiful things made from what they had on hand. Whether it was through sewing, cooking, painting, or gardening they taught me by their example, how to use my God given creativity in many areas of life.
"Turning Lemons Into Lemonade"
Throughout the 20 years I’ve been doing shows, I've heard the stories of countless women. I’ve always felt such a strong connection to them even though I do not know all of their names.
Many of these women would look at my work as they were admiring it and say,
“I wish I was creative. I don’t have a creative bone in my body” or
“I can’t even draw a straight line” or
“I didn’t know that verse was in the Bible” or
“I wish I knew my Bible better...”
Well, a mishap in 2020 drove me to my knees in prayer, the desperation opened my mind, and God planted the seed in my heart. And Part Two of the Lemonade Story is about me opening my mind to be willing to do something that so many women have been asking me for throughout the years. Which led me to begin Lemonade Creative Hearts.
Lemonade Creative Hearts (LCH for short) is a monthly practice of renewing your mind, and focusing on Truth, even when life gives you lemons.
Daily stressors are all around us… difficult relationships health crises, financial struggles, etc. These daily woes and “worry makers” can wear on our hearts and leave us with a sour taste in our mouths.
Though often embarrassed to admit it, sometimes it can be hard for Christians to stay in touch with God. It’s not always easy to find the time to nurture our relationship with God or invest in our own soul care, which can leave us feeling depleted and spiritually dehydrated.
Through the wisdom of God’s Word, we are given the tools to navigate the darkest of storms - a spoonful of sugar for life’s most sour lemons.
Time spent in His Word can bring refreshment to a parched soul and renew our minds to see our circumstances through the filter of Truth.
If you’ve been feeling called to reconnect with faith through the power of creativity, you’re invited to find monthly inspiration and tools to refuel and refresh with our Lemonade Creative Hearts community!
