There’s a Time to Be Still

There’s a Time to Be Still

Within weeks of launching the eBook edition of Calm Coloring: Faith, Hope & Love on Amazon, I lost the desire to draw another picture or write another word.

I soon realized I felt this way due to exhaustion. So this past month, I took the time to be still.

Slowly, inspiration kicked back in. I picked up a pencil and this design was born—Be Still.

Now begins the descent up a mountain (I call marketing). A mountain that needs to be climbed.

This morning I was encouraged to start climbing after I read this verse in my trusty guidebook.

“Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything in the One who makes me who I am” Phil 4:14 (The Message).

I had a choice to make. A choice to change my mindset.

I’ve made my choice.

My new mindset will be . . .

#Marketing is about sharing one’s passion with others.

Since my passion is to share my writing, my art, and my love for God, that’s exactly what I’ll do.

The paperback edition of Calm Coloring: Faith, Hope & Love (Art & Soul Therapy for Kids-At-Heart) is now available on Amazon.

I must also tell you, there’s nothing quite like flipping through the pages of a real book.

Not to mention, this book makes a great gift for any and all occasions.

The other week, I put together packages like the one shown below.

A dear friend who had to move into a nursing home received one. And I gave another to my neighbor as a moving away gift. Others received these packages too.

That’s it for today, so until next time . . .

Happy Heart Hugs & Coloring,

Tracy

P.S. Please help me climb this mountain and share with your friends. I can’t do this alone.
