Because We All Need Some Inspiration Right Now

PEOPLE WHO INSPIRE US – We think they’ll maximize your creativity, because they sure do a number on ours

Whether you are planning a dozen worship services, preparing for Christmas parties or working on finals, this is the time in Advent when we all need just a little bit of inspiration to help us get through the season. To help inspire you, we will be posting a list of a few of the people who inspire us. This is where we really need a massive Google doc, because you have your go-to “creativity maximizers” too. Feel free to shoot us an email or leave a comment with the people and sites that get your creative juices flowing, so we can check them out. We’ll update this list and repost it from time to time. Stay tuned for more creative and inspiring people and places!
