Free Soul Comfort Class Drawing

Topics: creativitygiving backGoalsInspirationUncategorized

In a slight change from my usual posts, I’d like to offer you the chance to win a video course through the Brave Girls Club. I took my first course from these ladies in January 2011, the month I learned my dad had pancreatic cancer. Soul Restoration held me together through that time and the year that followed after his death. Something about gluing things on paper kept me glued together.

Since then I’ve shared truth cards with my church and writing group, trying to spread the joy and comfort of gluing and creating beautiful words.

The Brave Girls Club is offering a new course and giving bloggers the chance to hold drawings for free classes. I’m pasting a few of their blurbs and a video below so you can decide if it intrigues you. I hope it does. Soul comfort for the holidays might be just the thing we all need.

Melody (course creator and teacher) says, “I want to teach you some new habits of creativity mixed with simplicity that I have learned over the years. Being a recovering hoarder of supplies and techniques, this is really a new way to give yourself permission to do things simply but beautifully.

One of the most wonderful things about this course is that everything fits into one fabric tote bag . . . I wanted to create a whole course where all of the supplies fit into a tiny space so that you could take it everywhere you go…so that you could do it sitting on your bed, on your couch, with your family, do it with your children, in the car, wherever your day takes you. It’s incredible. This has changed my life. This has been something that I have used on my own and I can’t wait to share it with you.”

And here is Melody Ross with her delightfully wacky hat to tell you more in a video:

As I look at this course and create this post, I’m impressed with how connected it feels to my last post about finding balance and resisting the urge to do it all. I did not plan to do this drawing until after I’d written about the Dallas Brass.

If you’d like a enter the drawing, post a comment here, answering the question:

“What do you think of when you hear the words ‘Soul Comfort’?”

I’ll do a random drawing from the comments on Monday, September 23rd at 9:00 pm PST.

    Food, of course, comes to mind first. Those wonderful comforting foods that you long for on a cold windy day. Those tasty treats you reach for when life has stressed you to the breaking point. Those family traditions you prepare when you need reminded of your connectedness to the universe through food and memories. 🙂

    Soul comfort to me means enjoying the simple things. To really feel and experience the everyday things. Curling up on the couch listening to the rain and smelling the fresh earth… <3
