Today we are celebrating the launch of a brand new online Christian Creative Community: His Kingdom Come.
This is an online Community where fellow Christians can encourage, share and learn about Christianity and explore the God-given creativity that he has put in us all. It will be a safe place to share your faith, be inspired, and explore creativity across many art mediums – journaling, mixed media, painting, bible journaling, textiles, watercolor and more.
His Kingdom Come will offer free tutorials, technique classes, devotionals, crafts to celebrate the holidays, opportunities to go deeper in your faith and in your knowledge of God and the Bible. The website will also offer Christian artists a platform to host classes (free or fee-based) which you will be able to sign up for.
A team of talented Christian artists have come together to launch this exciting new community. This blog hop is your chance to get to know them.
It doesn’t matter where you start within the blog hop. Or you can start at the beginning with Diane. Each blog will have the complete list of participants.

As you visit each blog you will be given a letter eg. D. When you have collected all the letters they will make a word. When you have worked out the word email Bernice at firstname.lastname@example.org with the word. We will randomly choose 3 people who have the correct answer to win a prize. All entries must arrive by Noon (Pacific time) on Monday 3rd November.

Here are the prizes,
Let me introduce myself:
I am a stay at home mom to four children, three daughters who are 15, 13 and 6 years old and a son who is 8. I have been married to my best friend for 18 years and we live in Ottawa, the capital city of Canada. I own a scrapbooking/mixed media store that I travel with to area events. I also teach mixed media classes and spend a lot of time doing design work. I have been a believer since I was a child but became a follower and true disciple of Jesus 18 years ago. My greatest passion is to see people set free of all that is holding them back, something that I believe can only happen through a close relationship with Jesus.
How does your faith impact your creativity?
I usually pray when I create art. I try to put on canvas what I believe the Holy Spirit is saying to me. I admit I too often get frustrated because the piece does not resemble what I was seeing in my head. My art usually has a much deeper meaning than what people might see on the canvas. My greatest desire where my art is concerned is that it would move people deeply and bring them closer to the heart of God.
What is your preferred medium of creativity?
I love mixed media…collage, ink, paint, stamps, stencils, found object and more!
What areas of creativity do you dabble in?
Mixed media, art journaling, junk journals, mini albums, scrapbooking and digital art.
What is your role within the His Kingdom Come team?
I’m the moderator leader and presently searching for people to add to the team. I’m also hosting the mixed media group.
What are your hopes for this new community?
I’m hoping for a safe community where people can share their creative life without fear of not measuring up, somewhere where we can all be encouraged. I also hope it’s a place where we can build meaningful relationships with each other.
