Called to Create by Jordan Raynor really challenged my view on what it means to be creative by changing how I view myself as a creator. It highlights that each of us are created to create, wether or not we have the education or formal degree for it. Personally I love working on projects that make a difference in other peoples lives by telling their story, and by doing so making the world more welcoming and beautiful. This book helped me look past my creativity as just a business but as a means to better the world around me. Read more>>

A few years ago I read “Infinite Possibilities: The Art of Living Your Dreams” by Mike Dooley. In it, he explains that our thoughts become things. Everything that we think and believe will become our reality, so one of the simplest ways to change your life is to change your thoughts. My mom is a really spiritual person, and she introduced me to the book once I started showing interest. Everything I read felt like truth on a deeper level, like it was something I had always known but had forgotten. I started shifting my mindset and watched as my dreams slowly manifested their way into my life. That book has completely changed me as a person. Read more>>

Sarah Jakes “Don’t Settle For Safe” is a book that I turn to over and over again. This book challenged me to dig deep and work on the inner parts of me. In this book Sarah Jakes shares her testimony of overcoming the challenges in her own life. Reading about how she did the necessary work pushed me to do the same. We all run towards the “safe” route but if we truly challenge and trust ourselves we can overcome and be bold! I desire to live outside of my comfort zone and constantly push myself to be better. Picking up this book after my divorce changed the very course of my life and where I was headed. I’m forever grateful for Sarah Jakes pouring her heart and soul out in this book. Read more>>
