SOS - Squirrel!

Thank you Matt. I’m sure this wasn’t just for me but I needed to hear it. Part of my personality and art process is that I enjoy tackling something new, something different, creating a new pattern or a new process so SOS is a real thing for me. Your tips really helped me be more thoughtful about those things and I believe as I apply them more, it will help to hone my purpose and keep me on track! Your podcast episodes are so great! I recommend them to people ALL THE TIME!

Walking Through Church Hurt

Relationship is so important to the Lord and, frankly, can be one of the most difficult parts of our lives to navigate. I'm so grateful for Matt Tommey sharing his trial-won wisdom in such a practically applicable way. Not only this podcast, but all of them are filled with bite-sized nuggets that I'm always able to apply to my life in some way. Thanks, Matt!

Matt is vey insightful!

You can relate to what he is saying in your life. Even if your not an artist you can apply it to whatever you do. I joined something called “quarantine creatives” not really knowing what I was signing up for. I was blown away by what was said and how he integrated the arts into it. I didn’t matter what kind of art either.
Through that I started listening to his podcasts. I try to go back as much as i can to listen to the older stuff too. God really does have a plan for our lives and you can find out what it is.
