Would you like to be creative, but you keep thinking:

- I’m not formally trained
- I don’t have a professional studio space
- I’m too old
- Someone I trusted told me I’m not any good
- I don’t have any original ideas
- I can’t because it’s not going to be perfect

If you think you’re disqualified from making art for these or any other reasons, I wrote this book for you.

-Becca Godfrey

It's time to lose the hang-ups and dismantle the lies that are keeping you from making the art you want to make. No more apologizing. No more delays or excuses. Time to begin! The World Needs You to Make Art is a raw and authentic conversation with artist Becca Godfrey about lies we believe about ourselves that keep us from creating with confidence.

Godfrey, a self-taught abstract painter, brings readers on a journey back to the place where they created without fear of criticism. Drawing from her own struggles as well as those she's encountered in her art students (both children and adults), Godfrey goes all the way back to the first words recorded in the Bible.

In the artist’s words, "This book is not a technical guide to creating beautiful abstract paintings. Nor is it a how-to guide for branding yourself and starting an art business. The internet is rife with that type of information and most of it is free, if you look hard enough. I don’t have seven steps to a thriving art business. But, like Peter said in Acts 3:6, 'What I do have I give to you.' That is – an account of my journey from an unqualified, self-deprecating, apologetic artist to a confident and fully-equipped one, and the expectation that you can and will make that journey too."

This has worked great for me as a professional nanny! I love having a sheet to fill out and this is the best one I've used. It prints exactly as shown. I do wish it had an area for diapering info, but I just write that down in one of the notes sections. Overall, worth the money for sure!

this download was exactly as pictured. i printed off at staples and it worked super easily. the only thing they could improve on is when i 3 hole punched it, it was right on the line but thats a 2 mm change that im okay with dealling with. it didn't affect any words.

I used this for my daycare to have as a checklist for parents. Being tech and marketing savvy - she asked if I could create something - I thought I'd have a look to see what others had done and found this easy download! Saved me a ton of time and its all she needed! Thank you.

I love this bracelet! It fit perfectly, looks just like the picture. It is made well and has meaningful words to remind me to Pray Always. It arrived quickly.
