The Soul Tells a Story by Vinita Hampton Wright
There is a reason artists tend to feel a sense of the sacred in their work. It's the same reason those on the path of spiritual formation find that creative exercises lead them into a deeper, more authentic experience with God. Creative work is soul work, and soul work is always creative work. Feeding one while neglecting the other will leave you restless and unsatisfied. Nurturing them both will lead you to new places of self-discovery and God-discovery. "I believe that spirituality and creativity are intricately connected, yet they are rarely nurtured and talked about that way," contends Vinita Hampton Wright.
Why I Loved It: Lines like: "Creativity is God's way of teaching us to pay attention." This book about spirituality, creativity and writing was inspiring and luminous. This is a book I will turn to again and again to lift my spirits and remind myself why I write in the first place.
