"Janice Elsheimer's book will be an invaluable aid for artists in all fields, helping the creative person to get closer to the Source of true creativity." --Bryan Savage, bestselling saxophonist/flutist with albums including "Cat Food," "Soul Temptation," and "Rush Hour" "Chapter-by-chapter, with thought-provoking words and exercises, Janice lifts the veil that blinds our thoughts towards our gifts. Most of us will be able to see ourselves somewhere within the pages of this book. We will then have the chance to overcome the lies that have kept us from believing that we can enjoy the wonderment of creating with the talent we possess." --from the foreword by Thomas Blackshear, illustrator, painter, and creator of the limited edition prints, "Forgiven" and "Coat of Many Colors" "To be an artist, receiving the vision and applying creativity may not be enough. Janice Elsheimer models, and suggests to the reader, many of the practical ways of living the fruitful artist?s life. Packed with lived-out illustrations of what it takes in the way of discipline and daily dedication to respond to God's creative call, this book blesses and illuminates." --Luci Shaw, poet and author,The Angles of Light, Water My Soul,andFriends for the Journey(with Madeleine L?Engle) "FollowingThe Creative Callmade me realize that my creative spirit was not being given free reign. I'm thankful to Janice for listening to God's creative call in her own life and sharing her vision with us." --Rev. Sarah H. Gaede, Orlando, Florida "Human creativity has been like a prodigal longing to return to its father. Janice Elsheimer guides the artist home." --Erwin Raphael McManus, lead pastor of Mosaic, artist, futurist, and author ofAn Unstoppable Force "The Creative Callwill reawaken and embolden artists to take responsibility for naming, developing, and expressing their creative gifts. The exercises here have the potential to transform an artist's understanding of who God originally created him or her to be, and to provide courage and discipline to actually produce work! I highly recommend that groups of artists work through this material in the context of community, to encourage and challenge one another." --Nancy Beach, programming director and teaching pastor at Willow Creek Community Church From the Trade Paperback edition.
