The Book

Unlocking the Heart of the Artist

Unlocking the Heart of the Artist is a clarion call to a new generation of artists who want to fulfill their purpose in the Kingdom, develop their unique prophetic voice and release it in a way that not only effects culture, but the heavens.  At the core of Unlocking the Heart of the Artist is an invitation to begin a journey of healing and wholeness that will yield deeper Spirit-led creativity and personal fulfillment. Through learning practical ways to engage the Holy Spirit in their creative process, the reader will learn how to collaborate with God not only in their chosen artistic medium but in life.

Over the years, I’ve 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’s 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.

Whatever their flavor of ‘stuckness’, the Father wants His artisans to be fully released to worship Him through their creative expression.  His desire is that nothing holds them back from the creative destiny for their life.

“It’s time for His artisans to walk in the destiny and fullness that God’s designed for you. Your heart beating fast, your imagination vivid, your eyes wide with wonder and desire – that’s His desire for you!  A life fully alive, fully engaged, fully embracing the creative destiny He’s given you.  He’s been waiting for this moment your whole life.”  (Excerpt)

    Matt, I am interested in The Artisan Series 12 week study you mention in your info on Forming a Worship Studio Community. A few of us in the Cobb County area are going to start meeting next week for prayer concerning starting a community like the Worship Studio. I think this would help us along in the process of getting God’s vision.
    I am a member at Riverstone Fellowship in Kennesaw. Please let me know how to get the series and your new book. Thanks.

  3. just landed on your site through google. AMAZNG! Am interested in the 12 week artisan series…and any information you may suggest to get a group of highschools rolling in creativity. I am a wife, mom, painter, revialist. Your site hs been so inspiring. I feel like I am collaborating with you…and am looking forward to your next conference.

    A definite must read!

  5. I have a 12 year old daughter that loves to draw. She has had no art classes as she has been home schooled and I do not have an artistic bone in my body. Would this be a good book for me to read to encourage this in her. She may attend public school for the first time, just so she can have some art education. Not sure if she has a gift or not, but definetly a very real interest. If I am going to nurture this in her, I want to nurture it for the glory of God. I would appreciate any feedback you can give me. I am just being introduced to Art as an expression of worship and would love to teach her to see it that way as well.
