268 - 5-Minute Mentoring: Should I Ever Give a Discount?

7/16/2021
Some people just love to haggle. They enjoy the thrill of the hunt for a great deal. They LOVE getting a discount. They’ll ask for discounts on everything - just in case the answer is yes! A lot of artists think that they have to offer a discount to get someone to buy their art - but it’s not true, and it’s not good for your business! Remember, a discount takes money right out of your pocket - and that makes your job as a business owner even harder! If you’ve been tempted to discount your...

7/13/2021
When I received my commission from the Lord back in 2009 to raise up an army of artists all over the world, one of the things that He told me I would be doing was bringing the master artists and emerging artists together to learn from and walk with each other. That’s why I’m delighted to introduce you to my friend Scott Stearman, a master sculptor, consummate encourager, and passionate storyteller who loves to use his creative gifting to release the Light and Love of Jesus wherever he...

266 - 5-Minute Mentoring: Are You a Slave to Your Business?

7/9/2021
When I first started my art business, I was in “hustle mode.” I was working 6-7 days a week, burning the midnight oil, and creating art that was selling - but that wasn’t bringing me any joy. It wasn’t until I realized that I needed to make my business work for me - and not the other way around - that I finally discovered the life God meant for me to live. On this episode of 5-Minute Mentoring, we’re talking about how to avoid letting your business run the show, and I’ll share the two...

265 - It is What You Make of It: A Conversation with Justin McRoberts

7/6/2021
Ever heard that saying, “It is what it is?” It’s often said in the context of something that we can’t change, something that feels too big for us to tackle. My guest this week, Justin McRoberts, is determined to change this sentiment from “It is what it is” to “It is what you make of it.” In this episode of The Thriving Christian Artist podcast, Justin and I talk about how when we’re tempted to throw up our hands and say “It is what it is,” what we really need to do is to throw up our hands...

263 - Understanding Prophetic Creativity: A message from Matt Tommey

6/29/2021
One of the biggest misconceptions that a lot of artists carry is the idea that creativity is outside the realm of God’s Kingdom, that it’s “extra” or ancillary. But here’s the thing: creativity is what manifests God’s Kingdom - not the other way around. It’s how we connect with the abundant life that Jesus designed for us, and it’s how we see the transformative power of God begin to flow in and through our lives. In today’s episode, I’m bringing this message from a recent sermon I preached...

260 - 5-Minute Mentoring: What Is Prophetic Art?

6/18/2021
Quite simply, prophetic art is "creating art with God." It's this beautiful dance where, as artists, we do the thing that God has put on our hearts through our creative process. He flows through us by the power of the Holy Spirit in order to inspire us, bring fulfillment to us in our unique design, and release His transformative nature through us to touch the world around us. Prophetic art isn’t about integrating crosses, doves, or Scripture into every piece you create. It’s about doing...

6/1/2021
One of the things that I love doing as an artist and an entrepreneur is learning from people who are not artists, especially in the business realm. I've learned over the years that learning from other people's experiences and tapping into their wealth of knowledge helps give me a different perspective on what God's called me to do as an artist and as a creative. My guest today, Don Long, not only has a great understanding of how business and sales work but also of how the Kingdom of God...
