It’s taken most of my adult life to really get in touch with who God has called me to be in His Kingdom. Most of that time has been spent, not in trying to figure out what God wants, but figuring out who I am and what I was created for. Something powerful happened inside my heart and my very spirit when I started to get it – I mean really get who it was I had been created to be. The pint of convergence in my life came after many years of struggle, confusion, and years of trying to achieve the results of a life I thought I wanted. I’ll be sharing my story with you throughout this journey of unlocking the heart of the artist!

This is a remarkable book. If there is another even remotely similar, I have not seen it. It speaks to a largely untouched area in our society and represents the happy and significant fact that God has left no venue in our world without a witness of His cosmic plan, His eternal kingdom. Thanks matt for your strange and remarkable “hobby”, for your wonderful understanding of the whole, big story of God and human redemption and, most of all, for your willingness to put it in print for all of us.
Jack Taylor, author, Christian leader and President of Dimensions Ministries

Unlocking the Heart of the Artist is a must read for those who have had their creativity blocked or dormant as well as those wanting to take the next step in advancing His Kingdom through their own creative expression. As one who leads prophetic art and creativity seminars, I will be encouraging my students to devour every morsel of this amazing book.
