In 2016 I'm attempting to do #52weeksofstorytelling with a different theme each week.
Week 18/52 - Creativity
Despite being a musician, I never considered myself a creative person until I started experimenting with photography. I find so much joy in finding ways to capture the beauty of every day life. And becoming a mother has also stretched me in becoming a more creative person.
The story behind this photo... My girl requested a One Year Chronological Bible for Christmas. She had a desire to read through the Bible in 2016. (I love this Bible because of how it's arranged. There are daily readings marked and it's set up chronologically. For example, you won't read through the entire book of Psalms or Isaiah as a whole, but instead you'll find the psalms interspersed throughout the story of David and his reign as king. And you'll find the prophecies of Isaiah as they occur through history and not as a separate book.) Having done this myself several times now, I didn't expect her to last more than 5 or 6 weeks. But she's hanging in there and keeping up! This weekend (Mother's Day), she was baptized and I wanted to commemorate this special time in a creative way. To me this photo symbolizes that God is her focus, and that's why she's a bit blurry and the Bible is is focus.
