I have some scary but exciting news to share. This October, I will be participating in a community blogging event called 31 Days, which is a writing challenge for the month of October.
I follow several bloggers (they're mainly home decor blogs) that take part in this challenge every year, and I always love seeing how their blogs grow through this challenge.
Essentially, a blogger chooses a topic of choice and writes about it every day for the month of October. The idea, as a writer, is to go deeper into one topic. As a reader, the reader gets to learn a lot about this one topic.
When I first published this blog earlier this year, I knew that I wanted to take part in this challenge, but I had no idea what my topic would be. After a lot of thought and prayer, I started thinking about things that the Lord has gifted me in, things that I could share with others, or even topics that I have specialized knowledge in. (I kind of laughed at that one because I feel like I'm too young to have specialized knowledge in anything).
But then I started to think about topics that God puts on my heart a lot.
And then it hit me.
Something I think a lot about is the internal struggle that comes from being a Christian that is a creative, an artist.
Honestly, I have a lot to confess about the struggles and joys of what it looks like to be a creative Christian.
So I decided to tackle this topic for the month of October: what does it look like to be a Christian, a follower of Christ, and also have the desire and the gifting to create works of art.
My hope is that as I go deeper into this challenge, that some truth would be revealed and that others would be encouraged. But I also hope that I will learn more about what it means to be a creative Christian and the joy that comes from it.
So that's it. 31 Days. Confessions of a Creative Christian. Holla'
I hope that you join me on this journey for the month of October, whether you're a creative yourself or just someone that enjoys created things.
So get ready, because October 1st is days away! Let the challenge begin!
Hey! I'm Madi
