...5 more night time prayers

...oh my goodness!  i have a huge secret!  last spring i jumped way, way out of my comfort zone and registered for an art retreat in manzanita, oregon. (you can read all about it here ) i felt so proud of myself for registering, positive that i wouldn't get in because there were only about 20 spots available.  it was just the simple act of sending in my registration that was a giant leap for me in my attempt to put into "action" the whisperings of my creative spirit.  little did i ever expect to actually "get in"...YIKES!  so fast forward to today...i have only 5 more nights of getting on my knees in prayer before i jump on a plane with a heartful of emotions and excitement and spend 5 days with amazingly talented, wonderful women to "UNEARTH" all that lies deep within me.  who knew that when i underlined these words in kelly rae roberts book  "..do the thing that scares you the most.  By doing it, you'll give birth to your life's promise and unearth your buried dreams.  rediscover your worth, your potential, your creative spirit. then go and fly on its wings to places you won't ever want to leave."...it would lead me to take the first HUGE step towards cul*ti*vating all good things in my life.  amazing!


  1. Chrissy,
    I'm so excited for you!
    I wasn't sure - do you mix with all the instructors or just one, like we'll do in February.
    Will be anxious to hear about and see your works of art!
    God Bless.

  2. Hi Chrissy! I just read the comment you left on my blog and decided to check yours out too! Your post spoke to exactly where I am with art too. I also read Kelly Rae's book and it has become my artist bible really. It will be so fun to meet you and everyone at the retreat in Feb! If you would like to chat anytime before, you can email me at lspotts@sbcglobal.net or find me on facebook under Lorrie Spotts. I love your blog and am about to add myself to your follower list... :)

  3. I'm so excited for you too. Good on you for taking such brave steps and I wish I was joining you. Only a few months now till I take my journey. Can't wait to meet you in Feb and looking forward to reading more in the meantime.
