Do you know my friend Renee from the blog Fimby? I've linked to her blog many times over the years, there's always such goodness coming out of those pages. Sometimes Renee teaches us how to make soap or lotion, other times she invites us into her vegan kitchen, and often she shares one of her deepest passions with us - homeschooling. Renee reminds us what it means to fully live this one precious life of ours. Lately, she's been sharing so much on her blog about connection and encouragement through writing. Another talent and passion of hers.
Renee's number one earthly calling is to her family.
She's a busy mama for sure, but Renee also appreciates the importance of cultivating personal interests and creativity in order to be a more fulfilled person (which naturally results in being an even better mother and partner... love how that works). Renee's been doing a lot of self study and reflecting over the past year and has identified so many techniques and ways to nurture creativity, specifically as a busy mama.
She even wrote a book about it! Nurturing Creativity is a quick read of an ebook, and can be devoured in an evening or two. It takes no time at all to learn from and be inspired by Renee. I think it makes perfect sense that her first book is so deliberately to the point and succinct, that is exactly how Renee is! (Although Renee loves the process and a good back story too, she's just so good at getting right down to business.)
Now we can enjoy her generous wisdom in a broader context than a blog post. Now we can curl up with a cup of tea and Renee's new ebook!
By entering a comment on this post, you will be entered to win one of three copies of Nurturing Creativity. Fun! Winner will be announced Tuesday evening.
In Renee's book she pays tribute to many the forms of creativity - the more typical art and craft type, but also homemaking, cooking, community building...
Do tell, what creative pursuits are you looking to 'find' time for?
