Choosing Space for Hobbies

“Choosing Fun, making space for hobbies in your spiritual life is actually going to be a deposit in who you want to be in the long run.” @anniefdowns

I’ve sketched a few episodes of the @preachersnsneakers podcast – he interviews some really interesting people and this one was no exception! I’ve got a pile of books to read already but I’m definitely going to add “That Sounds Fun” by Annie F. Downs to it. I identify with this quote so much because it’s exactly what I’m doing here. I’ve tried the “make art on the internet” thing quite a few times and it always failed because “getting paid” was my measure of success. When I changed it around to “I’m going to try and honor Jesus and enjoy it” is when I really started to feel not success but joy. I don’t feed my family with what I make from creating sketches but I definitely feed my soul.

That last sentence was a little gooey. You know what, I’m going to leave it there! 😅 Thanks for another awesome podcast – I appreciate what you do! 🙌

Illustrator and Sketchnoter. I prefer pizza over tacos. I like to draw things without fur much more than things with fur. When presented with two choices I pick the one that's less complicated.
