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.

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. When: Saturday October 17, 2015 9:30-3:30pm For: St James Church As of right now this is a closed event just for this parish, if this changes we will keep you posted.
