About the Book

What was God thinking when He created you creative and then gave you children?

Creative moms often feel as though they must lay their passions down. But God had something special in mind for the creative woman during this intense season of mothering.

In this Pinterest age of handcrafted children’s parties, Instagram photos of beautifully decorated homes, and blogs filled with poetry and prose, it is clear that we are in the midst of a brand new artistic renaissance. Not one born in Italian cathedrals or Harlem jazz clubs, but rather in kitchens, nurseries, and living rooms around the world. Mothers, working in the cracks and crevices of each hectic day, are adorning the world with their gifts, and they’re showing all of us the beauty of this Life Creative.

LC-BookCoverIn this book, you’ll learn:

  • Why the world needs your art
  • How this Life Creative begins at home
  • When art can turn a profit
  • Your part in this modern day Renaissance

Life Creative paints the stories of moms, just like you, who are fitting their inspired lives into the everyday, ordinary places of motherhood. Women like home decorator Melissa Michaels and jewelry designer Lisa Leonard, author Angie Smith, recording artist Ellie Holcomb, and many more.


About the Authors



What people are saying about Life Creative!

lisawhittle“As the mom of 3 kids, I need the wisdom of other moms, but most, I need their companionship and gentle nod of understanding. Wendy and Kelli have offered this in the pages of this book in the most precious of ways: they’ve taken our hand, looked us in the eye, and given us the gentle nod to help us move forward. Life Creative lets me be myself and find my best mothering, there. Kudos, ladies. This book is a big exhale, a dear friend, and a powerful teacher.” Lisa Whittle, author of {w}hole and I Want God

emilywierenga“Life Creative extends a hand across the lonely miles of motherhood, to every woman who feels like she’s lost herself in a sea of diapers and dishes. It breathes beauty and life and purpose into the everyday servant-hood of mothering, and reminds us that it’s up to us to seize those very ordinary moments and turn them into something beautiful. I have never read anything like this, and as both a mother and artist, I endorse it fully. The world needs Life Creative.” Emily Wierenga, author of 5 books including Atlas Girl: Finding Home in the Last Place I Thought to Look

denisehughes“Mothers carry deep within them an innate desire to create beauty around them—whether it’s with shape or color, words or song. In Life Creative, Wendy and Kelli come alongside the artistic soul inside us all with wisdom and insight on how to care for our families while also caring for the artist within. …an absolute must-read for creative moms.” Denise J. Hughes: Author of the Bible study series, Word Writers, and the book On Becoming a Writer. Editorial Coordinator for (in)courage, and Founder of Deeper Waters Ministry

“Life is a buffet, and every creative brings her own dish to offer at the banqueting table. Some need to be fed by your unique words, refreshed by the living water dripping from your creative images, and sung into deeper faith by the strains of your cello song. And if you don’t paint it, write it, sing it, bake it, sew it, sing it…they might go hungry.Life Creative: Inspiration for Today’s Renaissance Mom
