Becoming |The Unfolding Of You {free study starting in January}

About a year ago as I was taking a walk and talking to the Lord I received the name for a future course.  I love when I get the name and tagline all together. I came home giddy and excited for what this course would be about.  This course would be the third in a series.  My very first online art course was Creatively Made {rediscovering the beauty of your gifts) and it was followed up with The Journey of Letting Go {creating beauty from ashes).  Both courses were full of art but also my own journey with my gifts, forgiveness and the Lord.  There have been many art courses after the first course but I knew that this third “series” course would be all about the Lord.  Wide open and all laid out for anyone that wanted to hear more about Him or grow in their faith.

The most successful time of year for an online art course is January so about two months ago I began to get more serious about laying out the course and the foundation of what I wanted to share/create.  A few months ago the Lord very sweetly whispered that this course needed to be free.  What?  Free?  Crazy Lord!  This is the best time of year for a course!  This can’t be the Lord:-)  After many discussions with the Holy Spirit over that week I walked away knowing this was good. Really good. As I sat in church a few weeks later name after name flooded my mind and heart and I started writing as quickly as I could.  All of the content for the course was provided, the heart behind the course and all of the women I knew I would love to be a part of the course.   I don’t know there has been a complete 180 on how I thought this course would be run…but I just know it doesn’t matter.  I know that every door that has opened for me has been the Lord and that He knows exactly the whys.  He knows the hearts that need more. More of Him and so much less of this world.

As I emailed friends that I knew were crazy for Jesus I held my breath and wondered if anyone would even be up for doing this free study with me.

With tears I am writing this because look at all of these amazing women that said YES!

These are the best of the best and they are doing this because they love you and they love the Lord.

This January join 21 women for an 8 week study all about finding your true identity in Christ.

Each week you will hear unfolding stories from the women in this study.

We will be sharing truths about who the Lord says we are and our personal journeys to accepting and living out these truths.


I hope you will take a minute to hear the heart behind the course…

We will also have fun creative videos that follow the study each week where the women will share one of their gifts.

Think guitar playing, bread making, painting, entertaining and more.

You know I can’t have a course without sharing how the Lord uses our creativity!

My hope is that the study will give you fresh eyes for the Lord and yourself.

When we know who we are in Christ it changes everything and opens our paths and gifts in incredible new ways.

Some of us are carrying around “truths” about ourselves that are flat out lies and it time to lay them down.

This study will be open and honest, real, Bible based and a bit of creativity too.

We hope you will join us January 6, 2015 for this free online study!

    What a true blessing this will be! Excited to spend time with you ladies and hear what God has in store for us all. It’s easy to get caught up in the day to day and forget how precious we are to Him. May this class bring it to light for each of us. xxx

    I have taken several of your classes and have felt energized, this one will be the best ever. Thank for sharing your talents and offering this class for free, it’s appreciated. Can’t wait to begin.

    Oh my! Oh my! Oh my! Sheila Atchley told me about this and I can’t WAIT to sit under the creativity and experience and inspiration of ladies the likes of Sheila! I first met Sheila during a weekend ladies retreat at my church in the NC mountains almost a year ago, and fell in love with her! Her teaching touched my heart profoundly and I want MORE!!!! Her art inspires me, as I’m a creative soul too. I can’t wait to connect with His creativity in others!


    I am soooo looking forward to this! Just the video had me in happy tears!

    What a wonderful gift! Isn’t it amazing how God works in our lives and has used you to create this wonderful new on line class. When first reading this, I thought a week with Jeanne and was very excited about that. Then, to find out it is 8 weeks and all these other artists have joined their hearts and talents with you. Truly amazing!!

  9. Sheila Atchley

    I’m feeling incredibly expectant in my spirit about the things God wants to do in this study – feeling so amazed to be on the “roster” with the likes of these women, all whose names I recognize, whose talents I respect – and feeling excited to see so many of my friends already joining! (Hi Janet! Hi Meredith!).

    1. Janet Asbury

      Hi Sheila! I totally agree! This is going to be my Winter SONshine, for sure! Truly, this is an answer to my heart’s cry to go deeper and for structure in my plunge. I can’t wait!!!

    Jeanne, Thank you for listening to the Lord and offering this course to us. I registered with tears running down my cheeks and thanking God that He led me to your website a little over a year ago. I can hardly wait to learn all that He has planned for me. What a wonderful gift you are giving us. The timing is perfect. Thank you to you and all of the other ladies taking part in this study. I am so excited and looking forward to it.

    Wow! What a blessing this will be! You are a gift to us all Jeanne and I am blown away by your giving spirit! Thank you so much!!!! And thank you to all the other women who are giving of themselves freely to this study! I cannot wait!!!!

  20. dannylion

    Thank you. I so need to learn… you don’t even know how much I have to grow with my Faith…. my burdens are beyond heavy at this very moment and I can’t do it anymore… to watch your kid suffer every day – and now to not have the energy to take care of him – I need some Faith…. Thank you! I can’t seem to find any other words right now except I can’t be a giver at this point in my life —- I have to be a taker to survive and I appreciate this opportunity to take this class! Did I share my gratitude yet? Thank you!!!!

  21. Renee Ortiz

    Oh Jeanne! Tears in my eyes, as this is absolutely beautiful and read following a sweet heart to heart talk with Jesus as He continually redirects me in terms of my art and dreams. I am so looking forward to this time spent with you and the others… To seeing God’s hand in it all. He has indeed affirmed what I have already been finding out about you and I am so happy and blessed to call you my friend. I will be praying for you and the other women as you prepare this and i will be praying that God uses it in mighty ways.

  22. Barbara Steele

    Thank you Jeanne. I have been struggling this year with a variety of issues and the timing for this course is perfect… because as Lauren Talley’s song says “He’s an on-time God… yes He is.”

  23. Pam Coxwell

    This is so exciting! I took both of the classes in that series and have been forever changed. I’ve taken almost all of the others that you have offered but that specific series REALLY impacted me! The Lord used your honesty and transparency to minister to me in a great way. Jeanne, thank you for trusting and obeying HIM! I pray He blesses you back for offering this for free 🙂 as well as the other ladies helping you fulfill this calling. My heart is very excited! Thank you!

  24. Mary W

    Hello Jeanne, with each new class I take with you, I am more impressed with your heart and sharing, I cannot wait to take this one as well! I appreciate all you do and what a great way to start the new year.

    This course has truly been a God sent gift. For some time now I have been struggling with wanting to grow more in my faith and learn more about this yearning that I have to create and give. I am so looking forward to this new journey and for that I’d simply like to say “Thank you” for sharing your gifts…..

    I just got butterflies in my tummy. The new year promises good things for me and my family and this course couldn’t have come at a better time. I am deeply greatful to have found it through Kari Anne at Thistlewood Farms and am looking forward to being a part of this journey.

  37. Julie

    I’ve never been religious and have run from the mere mention but I read Karianne’s post and it touched me. Touched me enough that I ended up here and find that for some reason, I am drawn to this. I don’t know why but maybe there is a higher power prompting me and I’m willing to be open and see what happens…
