Newest Hobby

If you've ever read my blog, you know my interests and hobbies vary often.  I love trying and learning new things...when I have the time!

My recent obsession is hand lettering and watercoloring.  I'm not especially great at either, but that's why you practice, right?

I follow several hand letterers on Instagram.  They post month-long challenges with a different prompt every day.  This has been a great way for me to get in some practice on a daily basis.  The one I'm doing now actually combines hand lettering with doodling and water coloring.  I'm better at drawing than I thought I was!

All of this practice and renewed creativity has gotten me thinking.  What is God's plan for this? How does HE want to use my desire to create art?  And that's where this idea came from.

I'm doing a challenge myself now and I'd love for you to join me!  I'm calling is #letteringhisname #practicewithpurpose

Here's how it will work:
Every day we will research the name of God to understand the meaning and, therefore, know Him more.  
After studying the name, we will practice our lettering by writing the name of God.  Get creative.  Use flourishes, doodle what comes to mind when you study Him, give it a beautiful watercolor background.  Let Him guide your art!
Now into hand lettering?  That's fine - just use your own handwriting, but write his name!  
Share what you've written on instagram with the following hashtags:
I'd love it if you also tag me: @mommyofBAM

When we finish this list, we will start a new one!

He knows our names - He knew them before we were born!  So why don't we learn more about His name together?
