Welcome to the Shivoo! Creatives Mimicking the Creator by Laura Bartnick is one of the best things I have read about creativity. In fact, it can be read as the spirituality of the creative person, a book that brilliantly showcases God’s centrality in the creative process, demonstrating how we dance to the mystical tunes of the Creator, imitating Him in one of the aspects of our being — co-creators. This is a book that will help any struggling creative person understand the life that flows through their creative process and find their purpose. Filled with powerful insights and spiritual lessons, this book is designed to help readers — creative persons — reconnect with their craft and with themselves, and ultimately with the source of all inspiration.
Written in a friendly, warm tone, Welcome to the Shivoo! Creatives Mimicking the Creator makes the reader feel a deep sense of belonging. The book offers a path towards fulfillment and purpose, featuring many biblical references that will help readers develop a strong awareness of the sacredness of their creative endeavors. Here is a book that unveils the startling intersection between art and spirituality, a book about life, about work and dignity, and about God working in us. Laura Bartnick knows how to speak to the reader’s heart, using words that inspire and empower, and bringing readers to her point of view with compelling arguments. I enjoyed the anecdotes and how the author weaves her personal experiences into the story. If you are a creative, this book is for you. It will help you redefine why you ache to do what you are passionate about, and it will offer tools to make your work a success. It’s a must-read.
