Creative Kids, Creative Parents. You’ve got what it takes!
There’s no magic formula for raising creative kids. Nor should we throw up our hands and say, “Well, too bad kid. Either you got it, or you don’t.”
There are many ways to cultivate creativity, and many directions express our God-given abilities. I loved Jenny’s book Courageous Creative: A 31-Day Interactive Devotional because she walks you through a thought process as she challenges you to fling the windows wide open and discover the amazing person God created you to be.
We create because we were made in His image, and HE is the ULTIMATE creator.
Courageous Creative gave us room to dream. I started doing this devotional with my daughter in the morning before our homeschool day began. We did the challenges together, looked up the correlating scripture passages, and prayed as we re-discovered God in the things that He has made, and then skills He gives us to make our own stuff.
Because, after all, creativity is just the act of making stuff.
Here are some examples Jenny gives on how to be creative:
- Media or Production
- Art & Crafting
- Creative Process and Development
- Public Speaking & Advocacy
- Dance Party!
The possibilities are endless! But it takes stepping out and actually doing it. There are 50 specific things Jenny lists in Courageous Creative so order her book today and start challenging yourself as you provide opportunities for your kiddos to embrace their beautifully unique gifts.
