Hour 1: Let There Be Art

Join Dawn and Steve in the Morning for a devotional from Blackaby Ministries International about preparing for the day of the Lord. 

For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.   1 Thessalonians 5:2

In addition, Rachel Marie Kang will discuss her book Let There Be Art: The Pleasure and Purpose of Unleashing the Creativity within You. Rachel reminds us that our art is not peripheral to life but rather it is at the heart of what we have to offer the world.

A mixed woman of African American, Native American, Irish, and Dutch descent, she is a graduate of Nyack College (New York) with a degree in English with Creative Writing and Bible.

Join Dawn and Steve in the Morning for a devotional from Blackaby Ministries International about sitting at the feet of Jesus.
