Whimsical Faces and Identity Crisis

I checked out the book, Drawing and Painting Whimsical Faces by Jane Davenport and tried out a little whimsical face for myself. It was so hard, but fun to try something new. When I was finished, I decided to write something around her head and hair and this is what I wrote:

Though she be afraid, she was brave and stepped out in freedom to be the woman God designed her to be….a woman of faith.

I’ve been thinking a lot about identity and how I perceive my value. I have always needed other’s approval, being the people pleaser that I am, but I’m learning that is definitely not where my value comes from. I’m learning to be who God designed me to be. 
I may not be the perfect poised and proper preacher’s wife. And I may never dress with style. I may be silly and laugh out loud a lot, and may just be the worst housekeeper in the world, but I am learning to just be me. 
I am creative, messy, goofy, and sometimes too transparent, but God has designed me for a purpose. I have my identity in Him because He is my creator and knows me inside and out. 
And He likes the way He made me, so why shouldn’t I?
Here are a few pictures of my journal page in various stages. 

I hope you have a super Monday filled with lots of laughter.
