No More Starving Artists!

It’s been called “The Purpose-Driven Life for Artists”, “a manual for a new generation of kingdom artists” and “a must read for those wanting to take the next step in advancing His Kingdom through their own creative expression”.

From the founder of The Worship Studio Matt Tommey – A Practical Guide to Fulfilling Your Creative Calling as an Artist in the Kingdom entitled Unlocking the Heart of the Artist.

The Age-Old Problem…
If you’re an artist or creative person, there’s nothing worse than feeling like you’re at the bottom of your creative bucket – disconnected and longing for more but not knowing where to turn. You want to be more creative and even influence thousands with your art but it feels like there’s just nothing left. There is a way to recapture your creative spark and take it to levels you never dreamed! Are you ready?

Matt Tommey, art and Jesus, art and God, Christian art, prophetic art, art in worshipHi, I’m Matt Tommey, author of Unlocking the Heart of the Artist: A Practical Guide to Fulfilling Your Creative Call in the Kingdom. I’ve been a professional artist, musician and worship pastor since 1996. Over my entire career and especially as founder of The Worship Studio, I’ve had the unique opportunity to walk with and mentor many different artists, musicians and craftsmen from various backgrounds – teaching them how to overcome roadblocks to their own creativity, hear the voice of Jesus and engage the Holy Spirit in their creative expression. I’ve also lived this journey myself and now I’m going to share these secrets with you!

Over the years, I have encountered many artisans, musicians, craftsmen and other creative ones who have, for one reason or another, become stuck. The ‘stuckness’ originates from many different places – woundedness, fear, control, unbelief, religious barriers – and creates a frustration in their life that becomes unbearable. Many artists, unable to understand what is really going on either run headlong into ‘creativity for creativities sake’ or turn to unhealthy alternatives in order to numb or overcome the pain they are feeling. Many more simply give up, hide the gift by stuffing it down under ‘Christian work ethic’ and just try to gone on with life as usual. Sound familiar?

Whatever your flavor of ‘stuckness’, the God wants you to be fully released to worship Him through your art and creative expression. That’s exactly why I wrote Unlocking the Heart of the Artist! To help artists, musicians and creative people just like you to be happy, successful and fulfilled in their art, creativity and relationship with God.
