Reviews

"Called to Be Creative is a treasure and a joy to read. Mary Potter Kenyon skillfully braids together stories about her personal life, stories about the lives of people she knows, philosophical ideas, practical advice, current research, and interesting and motivating activities for the reader, creating something that makes you want to put the book down and start creating something wonderful. My own creative life is never going to be the same having read this book, and it is also positively affecting my teaching, parenting, and the way I relate to the world."
--Doug Shaw, author of Social Nonsense: Creative Diversions for Two or More Players and professor of mathematics at the University of Northern Iowa

"I devoured this book. Each chapter is filled with encouragement and inspiration. If you're looking for something to feed your creative soul, this is it."
--Debbie Macomber, #1 New York Times bestselling author


"Called to Be Creative takes the reader on a personal journey through the merry and often meandering world of creativity. As an art museum educator, I delight in the untethered creativity of the young and dismay when their older counterparts murmur the fateful words during art class, 'Is this done right?' Mary Potter Kenyon's book reminds us that creativity is a gift that is ours to access, one is never too old or too disinclined. She provides life-affirming stories and thoughtful suggestions to ignite creativity in even the most linear thinker. I invite you to use this book as a road map as you discover for yourself the joy-filled world of self-expression."
--Margaret Buhr, Director of Education, Dubuque Museum of Art
