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 150 quilts to children in the
Tamara has been teaching art and journaling classes for the past 2 years at womenís retreats, various small groups and even at her own studio. In that time she has taught almost 200 women this way of connecting with God and discovering themselves. She lives in Skokie, IL with her husband and son.

I can’t believe that it is already July, June seemed to fly by for us. My son finished school, I taught my first full day retreat with a good friend of mine Liz Lassa, we went down to Texas for 2 weeks and spent time as a family reconnecting. Now it’s July and half the summer is gone already and yet there is still so much coming up. Liz and I were just on Midday Connection, July 3rd, you can listen here, it was wonderful and the response has been overwhelming for us. (If you contacted us and haven’t heard back yet we are getting through the emails as fast as we can, thanks for being patient.) We spoke about Liz’s Spiritual Circle Journal and how to use it and how we took an entry from it at our one day retreat and created art from it. This retreat was so amazing to see how God spoke to each of woman and see the art they created from it.
But I promised you some new news… This coming weekend I will have a booth at the Skokie Art Fair. I have had lots of requests to know when I was going to do another art show, so here’s your chance to stop by see some of my art in person and meet me. I will be at the Skokie Art Fair, booth E67, both Saturday and Sunday this weekend from 10-5. Stop by and say hi! Also Liz and I are booking retreats for this fall, please check our schedules regularly to see when when are going to be in your area. If you don’t see your area, contact us and we can send you our packet of information on how to book us for your next church retreat.
