From time to time, I will join a creative challenge online. I did Inktober in October and it unleashed a whole new kind of art in me. This month, I found a challenge called Marchartoons, which challenges me to create a different character each day based on a prompt. I was thinking of doing a few of these for April. The one for this site would be AMOKApril and would contain a different Christian art challenge prompt each day, and then on Beware of Artists, I would do April Runs AMOK with a more “secular” challenge. If I do this, would anyone be interested in participating? Please let me know in the comments.

In the mean time, I have been posting my Marchartoons to social media and to my visual art blog, Beware of Artists. Here is today’s creation for the prompt “PLANT.”

It would figure that the day after I finish designing villainous plants for our flower show, the prompt of the day would be “plant.” I decided to go with a classic. Audrey II. One thing this always reminds me of is the old adage. What you feed grows, what you starve dies. It applies to murderous plants from outer space, and it applies to the attitudes and actions we carry through this life. Feed the positive and let the negative starve!


This year, I am going to post creative challenges from God’s Word, the idea is simple, read the passage and create something based on it.

Matthew 23:11-12

A few words on greatness from God’s perspective. How can you use your gifts to be great in the Kingdom today?

Proverbs 3:5-6

What does it mean to acknowledge God? How do we lean on our own understanding? How can we express this passage to someone else?

Formulate Your Ministry

Most of us have a dream or a vision for something we would like to do or feel called to do to serve the Lord. This will usually involve asking someone for permission to do said ministry. Before you ask, it is wise to have a clear idea what you are called to do. That is the purpose of today’s challenge. Pray and then write down as much of your “ask” as you can.

100 Word (or Less) testimony

I got this idea from another website that posts stories of 100 words or less. Talk about a challenge to be concise. I really liked this challenge. It helps to learn to be concise. Not everyone will want to sit and listen to your 15 minute testimony. Can you express it in five? Share your story in the comments.

Well I dropped the ball yesterday, so sorry about that. Things have been a little busy here of late. Yesterday in addition to my usual church work, I was finishing up work on a Deacon’s Retreat I’m presenting tomorrow. So I think today I am going to take you to the text I am using to see what you can do with it.

Ephesians 4:11-17

The passage talks about leadership gifts and how they are to be used in the Body of Christ. What in this passage stands out to you and how might you express it to the people around you.
