7 ARTISTS: IMAGINATIVE / PASSIONATE / ORIGINAL

By August 28, 2016 One Comment

Creatives

Their creativity flows from their passion for a purpose or a person they love.

Some create because they want to.  Others create because they must. Either way, artists stir our imagination.

The world is a more beautiful place because of them.

7. Sarah E. Ball – Fearless In The Fire

Fourteen years ago, Sarah Ball’s life was a disaster. She was a single mom of two small children, living in poverty, abandoned, and afraid. However, this was the moment in her life that she began trusting God for her basic needs and He began turning her life around. She got married, had three more children and became an author.
