Connection Within Your Passion {and a book review}


Pursuing What Is Excellent -- Connection Within Your Passion

I’m new to the term “creatives” as it refers to writers, musicians, artists, and other similar passions,
but I like it!
It’s where we find our people and when we come most alive!
I guess some would call that “kindred spirit” connections.
What makes it more beautiful is when that passion is used to worship God.

In removing barriers & being squeezed enough to move, learning that I’m approved by God, and embracing Stirrer Friends, I’m learning how to cultivate those “these are my people” friendships.

Jennifer Ueckert quote

God connects us in beautiful and powerful ways
with people who share our passions.
– Jennifer Ueckert, Craving Connection

When we come together, we not only rehearse, write, or take care of business, but we build community and family.

[bctt tweet=”When we come together, we not only rehearse or write, but we build community and family.” username=”Kela__Nellums”]
It’s when we open our hearts to be seen, and possibilities of growth that we become more fulfilled in our God given giftings.
We can then stop focusing on what gets us “ahead” and start cheering our friends on because its toward a common goal; God’s glory!

I am so excited to partner with DaySpring to help introduce their newest book

Craving Connection: 30 Challenges for Real-Life Engagement!

Craving Connection Book

I found great joy in reading devotionals like the one that inspired this post from the women of (in)courage!

A little about Craving Connection from the DaySpring website!

“We all long for meaningful relationships, the Colossians 3:14 kind that fulfill our desire for unity and connection with God, our friends, and our community.  But where do we start?  The (in)courage community invites you to grab a cup of coffee, pull a chair up to the table, and commit to creatively and prayerfully fulfilling your cravings for connection. Craving Connection is a journey with (in)courage writers sharing real-life stories, practical Scripture application, and connection challenges that will encourage you to:  (1) embrace the desire God has given each of us for connection, (2) invest in meaningful relationships, right where God has you, and (3) become the friend you wish you had.” –from DaySpring

I find each devotional gripping and needed; digging into the heart of each matter, each woman gives a devotional, Scripture to apply, prayers, and challenge questions that will help in connecting with women in our lives.

Now we ask you, brothers and sisters,
to acknowledge those who work hard
among you, who care for you in the Lord
and who admonish you. Hold them in
the highest regard in love because of their
work. Live in peace with each other.
1 Thessalonians 5:12-13

The encouragement doesn’t stop there!

Along with the chance of reading the Craving Connection devotional, I am able to send special messages to my dear sisters from the POSTCARD BOOK, inspire with the Clip Frame and Art Print Set, and gift the “Share One” necklace as I “Wear One” necklace!
