In the realm of artistry, there are those who strive, and then there are those who thrive. Meet Christine Raymond, a passionate oil painter and plein air artist, whose love for capturing the beauty of God's creation knows no bounds. For 15 years, she pursued her art career, pouring her heart into every stroke of her brush. But it wasn't until she discovered the transformative power of the "Created to Thrive" Artist Mentorship Program, guided by the visionary artist and mentor, Matt Tommey, that her artistic journey truly blossomed.
The Joy of Creating
Christine's heart finds its fullest expression when she's creating. Be it painting landscapes, capturing the essence of a person's expression, drawing, or sculpting, every moment spent in the realm of art is a moment of sheer happiness for her. Sunsets hold a special place in her heart, serving as a captivating muse for her artistry. Not only is Christine an artist, but she's also a high-end art instructor, helping students with artistic talents build portfolios to pursue their dreams.
The Path of Independence
Before embarking on her "Created to Thrive" journey, Christine was the epitome of independence. If you looked up "independent" in the dictionary, her face might as well have been next to the definition. While her independence served her well for years, it eventually became an exhausting endeavor. She found herself yearning for the abundant life promised in John 10:10.
A Divine Awakening
It was during this soul-searching period that Christine stumbled upon Matt Tommey's book, "Created to Thrive," on Audible. The idea of thriving rather than striving intrigued her. She realized that her relentless pursuit of success left her feeling drained, and she longed for a life where her yoke was easy, and her burden was light. She wanted to partner with God and experience a life of rest and peace.
From Striving to Thriving
The "Created to Thrive" Artist Mentorship Program became Christine's guiding light. It showed her how to let go of the striving mentality and embrace a life of thriving. Through the program, she learned to work from a place of rest, realizing that God had a unique journey for her.
A New Journey
Today, Christine Raymond is on a transformative journey, painting with God as her co-creator. She no longer paints because she has to; she paints because she gets to. Her studio is not just a place of work but a sanctuary where she collaborates with the Divine, infusing her art with a newfound depth and vibrancy.
