A Little About Fruitful Creativities

Fruitful Creativities inspires mums to teach their children fun Bible kids activities while bringing creativity in their own Christian faith as well.

Fruitful Creativities is the result of long prayer and a call to reach out to other Christian mums. I just didn’t know ‘how’ for several months.

Then one day, I decided my daughter had reached a perfect age (then 2.5 years old) to start creating Bible crafts. For a while, I had been looking at how to teach her more frequently about Jesus without feeling I was ‘boring’ her. Bible activities were the perfect answer!

Turned out, she absolutely loved it! Not only did she learn different ways of being creative, she also seemed to remember the stories a lot better. She instantly recalled the crafts she had made and linked them to the Bible.

It’s in this moment that I realised some mums might be struggling to make Bible studies fun for such young children.

I also remembered how creative I used to be, before motherhood turned my life upside down (in a positive way). It just dawned on me that I had put creativity on the back burner. And although I studied the Bible with lots of colour and notes, I still felt my Bible studies and Bible journaling could be a little more creative.

And that’s when Fruitful Creativities came to live!

Get to Know Me

What is your background story?

I grew up in a Catholic family, but when my dad passed away when I was 15 years old, my mum and I got involved in the New Age movement. By the time I was 34 years old, I completed courses in Reiki and Sacred Symbols, worked with crystals, did yoga, and offered ‘advice’ through automatic writing.

When and how did you come to Christ?

The road to Christianity is a long story, so to make things short: my husband and I came to Christ in September 2014. I started reading the Bible and found myself absolutely fascinated by Revelation.

For a few years, we attended a couple of protestant churches until we ‘felt home’ in our current church. We were baptised in May 2018 and keep the Biblical 7th day Sabbath. We look forward to Jesus’ second coming and study to get ready.

Are you an active member in your church?

Yes, I’ve been teaching in the Kindy Sabbath School since May 2018. I love seeing those little ones learn about Jesus and they love it too! It has taught me how to teach little ones in a fun and creative way, even from their baby and toddler years.

Since July 2019, I also fill the position of treasurer and board member. A totally different area, but wherever God needs me, that’s where I’ll be!

What is your favourite book of the Bible?

I don’t think I have just one favourite book. Revelation is a well read, studied, and memorised book. It’s followed by the book of Daniel and the book of John.

What is your favourite Bible verse?

Again, I don’t really have one specific verse that I love. It’s important as Christians to know as many verses as possible. That said, I like to remind myself of God’s blessings and promises, and what Jesus has done for us.

I will share one verse with you that’s in light of this blog, and a good reminder for all Christians. Especially since I hear more and more that people don’t make time to study.
