I was on vacation, and it was a very relaxing time, lots of time to kick back and read. I read Matt Tommey’s Created to Thrive, and it was so good that I went to his Amazon page to see what else he had. I of course knew of this book, but somehow, I had not read it, so I picked it up. Once again I read this book in a very short period of time, about two days, and once again, it is that good. In this really phenomenal book, Matt gives us an exploration of our call as artists in the Kingdom of God. It also provides a primer of sorts for involving the Holy Spirit in our creativity. It all comes down to the idea that we have the immense privilege of collaborating with God.

In this book Matt reveals a level of transparency as he shares his own personal stories of both struggle and success. This is definitely not the work of a theoretician. This is a book from someone who has worked diligently at both his craft and his faith. I came away from this book once again feeling immensely inspired. This is both a great read and an important book.
