As a speaker, author and creative ninja, I believe deeply in the power of story.
At the age of 18, I encountered the greatest love story ever told, the Gospel.
The prayer that followed was simple: “Use me to make an impact for you.”
Since that prayer, I have worked as a video editor on billion dollar franchises in the heart of Hollywood. In 2009, I was recognized with one of the highest honors in the entertainment industry — an Emmy Award. Over 14-plus years, I've used my graphic design, editing, art directing and leadership ninja skills to collaborate with some of the biggest studios, companies and ministries around the nation.
More than 70 films, 60 books, 55 churches and two radio and TV stations have featured my media and voice. A voice that carried this fancy radio name - “Jumpin' Jenny”. Super original, I know.
As a creative ninja, over a decade ago I found myself living in this performance mentality zone, riddled with anxiousness and comparison. God broke the chains of inadequacy, taught me about my identity in Him and brought me such freedom. In this space of freedom, God has equipped me to challenge others to CREATE AND DREAM COURAGEOUSLY again. Right now that happens through writing and speaking at conferences and retreats.
I love collaborating and being in community with other creatives. Some of these creatives are in the chapter of their story similar to where I was, wounded or procrastinating because of fear. Others are in their act 3 dreaming and creating things that influence our culture for Christ.
The one thing we often have in common is a passion for taking the message on our heart and making it SHINE, with an aim to glorify Him - the Ultimate Creator. My heart for this website is that we dig into Biblical truths together, high-five one another in the Freedom Creatives FB community group and celebrate those BIG wins! May we be people who champion one another to live courageously in Christ. I believe whole-heartedly that we are called to be influencers for Him. So let’s start creating, crafting, writing, leading and trust Holy Spirit to speak into our process and fuel our passions. Cue the confetti and welcome to the party!
Happy Creating, you're designed for it,
