As we learn to walk by faith, God leads us into new freedom to be creative. God is a creator, and we were created in His Image, part of which means to be creative ourselves. The more we trust God and grow in faith, the less we fear what other people think of us. We can grow beyond people's disapproval or judgements which inhibits creativity.

Week #2 July 17, 2022 Sarah Salviander
Dr. Sarah Salviander was raised as an atheist in Canada and grew up to become an astrophysicist, author, and follower of Christ. While studying for her doctorate, a Ph.D. in Astrophysics from the University of Texas at Austin, she found so much compelling evidence for God in her scientific work that she chose to follow Jesus. In a world where science and faith are often seen at odds, for Dr. Salviander, you can say: “Science helped her find faith.”
