What the community says about Gently Awakened
- "Gently Awakened: The Influence of Faith on Your Artistic Journey is a christian book about an artist and her faith. this story is about the meaning of one's faith and how being christian helps one deal with life and its meaning. this book is very interesting and keeps you interested throughout""Gently Awakened is a really lovely story about an artist and how she incorporates her faith into all of her creations. There is a lot of inspiration in this book, especially for the creative Christian looking to better understand how to combine those two parts of self."
- "Do you dare risk unreservedly combining your Christian faith with your creativity? Could you be assured of thriving in the arts, or does that sound outrageously improbable? Creativity is like an unwrapped gift from God. Its contents are mysterious, begging for action. The benevolent Giver eagerly awaits a response. Yet it is often tossed aside after merely removing the outer wrapping. Too many Christians abandon their creativity, as if they were the hapless recipients of a toy with incomprehensible instructions. They walk away from their destiny-- perhaps their very reason for being gifted in such a time as this. They remain oblivious of their God-authored potential, empowered by faith, to uniquely express the many nuances of their journey with Jesus. Sara Joseph, an artist in paint, clay and verse, testifies to God's infinite interest in every aspect of her creative enterprise. What she discovered may surprise you. In Gently Awakened, she employs prose, verse, and art to attest to God's faithfulness to the artist. Far from empty theories, these lessons, forged in the paint-splattered laboratory of her own life, bring clarity to the practical considerations of living out the unique call of a creative Christian. Such a story could be yours to live, in partnership with your Creator."
