An Inspiring Breath of Fresh Air

Don't let the thorns of this life choke out God's beautiful seed!
After hours of bitter, frustrated, disappointed tears my eyes now mist with hope and encouragement.
I was told two days in a row, by two separate people that pursuing art is impractical and very difficult. That which came from my father was most painful, though I know he is trying to look out for me.
I finally decided to step out and pursue God's call on my life to create art that teaches and glorifies Him. In that state of spiritual joy I was greatly discouraged by others' lack of excitement and general criticism of the idea.
However, in God's sovereignty I found my way to your website. I do believe I have a calling and I agree it is something sacred to be pursued, disciplined, and given back to God.
Thank you so much for creating this site and encouraging all the Christian artists. Thank you for taking us seriously. Thank you for sharing your experience and wisdom. Thank you.
