Even if you aren't a visual artist or a writer, even if you don't think you have a creative bone in your body, it's worth buying this book and taking the time to work through it, preferably with a group. You will be surprised at what happens.
I'm a preacher--that's where my creative voice emerges. Janice's book was the catalyst that caused me to rethink my life, my faith, and my vocation. After working through the exercises, I signed up to do a Doctor of Ministry in Preaching, and quit my job. Now I'm waiting--creatively--to see what the Holy Spirit has up her sleeve.

I grabbed up The Creative Call in the midst of artistic anxiety. I earnestly read and did the assignments. Some of the assignments reaffirmed what I already knew but I had not been taking action. I am thankful for Janice's words encouraging me to stay on task. There are other parts of the book which required me to do some deep spiritual digging.Then some people call it synchronicity others know the touch of God's hand as people came into my path and events started to emerge. To my joy a group began doing the book on a weekly basis. We share and discover more. The memorization verses spring up as we immerse ourselves in His word. I came to such an epiphany and will continue to follow the guidelines in the book. I had always believed in the Lord working through my hands but now I see my work as a form of worship. I have passed on my enthusiasm and belief to everyone at Gallery523. Wishing you a good journey too.
