About

This style of creative journaling will help springboard people into seeing who God
created them to be.

Telling stories and recording them have always been important to Tamara Peterson, but she has always had trouble documenting her own. Not always having the right words to express her feelings around events that have happened in her life led her to finding a new way to journal.

Tamara learned, over time, that she just needed to be able to record her story in her own way through color, textures, symbols and pictures. Tamara loves teaching others this way to communicate their stories while ultimately drawing them closer to God. She believes that this style of creative journaling will help springboard people into seeing who God created them to be. Her passion is to ultimately help others to think of themselves as creative and live out their lives as the person God created them to be, a fully creative being.

Tamara has her undergraduate degree from the University of North Texas in Communication Design, she has worked at Fossil, Fellowship Church and now freelances from home. Three years ago, she started a ministry called Safe Blankets that gives handmade quilts to children in crisis situations. Since that time they have given over 350 quilts to children in the Chicago area.

Tamara has been teaching art and journaling classes for over 4 years at women's retreats, various small groups and even at her own studio. In that time she has taught women all over the country this way of connecting with God and discovering themselves. She lives in Skokie, IL with her husband and son.

Seeking God in fresh new ways

Jan 24, 2015 9:00 am

$

Techny Towers in Northfield, IL

Web_logo   Are you looking to revitalize your walk with God? Want to feel more of His presence and guidance in your life? Join Artist Tamara Peterson and Life Coach Liz Lassa as they teach women two fresh and fun new ways to connect with God (as heard on Moody Radio’s Midday Connection). In the morning session Liz will share her shorthand approach to seeking God through Spiritual Circle Journaling. This format helps you get deep quickly, using bullet points and circles. It’s simplicity helps even non-journalers keep track of their prayer life. The result is a closer walk with God, a more focused quiet time, and a life more clearly guided by the Spirit as you see God moving in the circles! There is a quiet-time session built in to give it a try. After a break for lunch we will take what God placed on your heart from the morning session a step further as Tamara teaches Spiritual Art Journaling.  We will capture on a canvas the word, verse, or phrase from your quiet time with papers, clipped images, textures, and paints. In the end you will leave with your very own “one-of-a-kind” canvas to remind you of His message for this season in your life. The only experience required is kindergarten! All materials are supplied. Attend the morning session, the afternoon class, or the FULL-DAY retreat at this beautiful location! WHEN: Saturday, January 24th, 2015

AM class: 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
PM class: 1:00 to 4:00 pm
Full day: 9:00 am to 4:00 pm
WHERE: Techny Towers, 2001 Waukegan Rd., Northbrook, IL COST: One class $48.

Artful Advent: Week 2

December 7, 2014

Artful Advent Week 2

Artful Advent: Week 2
Luke 1:26-38, Isaiah 40:28-31, Jeremiah 18:1-6, Psalm 94:19
“Greeting, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.” (Luke 1:28, NIV)
Mary was now a wife to Joseph and pregnant with the Lord’s son, traveling to Joseph’s hometown of Bethlehem from Nazareth to register for the first census. Over 70 miles they would travel by foot or on donkey through the desert carrying everything they would need for this trip (no stopping at 7-11 for them). They would fear the freezing temperatures at night, bandits and wild animals looking for easy prey (A young women 8 months pregnant and one young man would certainly fall into that category) and yet they forward. As they traveled to Bethlehem they were in a time of waiting and preparing. Preparing for their new live together. Waiting and preparing to greet their new child that was soon to come. Waiting to reach the end of their trip. Waiting to see what the Lord had in store for them.
The Bible doesn’t tell us of their struggle to get to Bethlehem, but it sure couldn’t have been an easy road for them to travel. God was there and gave them space and time to get to know each other before the baby came. He gave them strength to make the journey, and grace to cover them in the times of stress that I am sure came with making a journey like that.
Mary and Joseph were just getting to know each other and learning how to be a wife and a husband as best they could, Mary was pregnant with a child that was not his and now they were traveling for a week through the desert. Any one of those three can be a stressful situation on their own, but they had to deal with all three at once. They were walking through a valley, but they were trusting that God would get them through. How often I falter when I can’t see what’s coming or when I feel something is too big for me to take on, and yet I look at Mary who was so young, and who took on so much. She didn’t do it on her own, she didn’t know what would happen or how, but she had faith that her God would get her through!
Mary and Joseph didn’t stop and stand still and hope God would magically move them to the next destination of Bethlehem, even though the road they traveled was hard they still moved forward. So many times I would just rather stay put and let the future just come to me. It doesn’t work that way and Mary knew that. She moved towards it, unsure of the path or where it would lead, but she moved knowing her God would stay with her no matter what.
This week stay present with God, allow Him to guide your steps and allow Him to help move you forward.
ASK YOURSELF:
Do I move forward or stand still during trials in my life?
Where is God asking me to wait and prepare?
