Beth Affolter was a successful professional artist until my podcast inspired her to quit art.
No, really! It’s true!
Despite making regular sales, Beth’s art business wasn’t fulfilling her. Listening to my podcast got her thinking about what God was calling her to do, and she realized that it wasn’t to push for perfection and wear herself down trying to create art that would sell.
After years of striving hard for success in everything she did (and largely finding it), she learned to just let go of it. She learned to walk in the Kingdom in peace and faithfully follow God's plan for her.
Teaching, graphic design, mentoring, painting… all steps along her path that have led her to where she is now - teaching other people how to co-create with God while simultaneously teaching them to hone their skills.
And now she's on the cusp of launching her own online courses and membership program, thanks to God leading her in a direction she never could have anticipated.
If you want to be inspired to give God control and walk with Him in the Kingdom, you should listen to Beth’s story on this episode of the Thriving Christian Artist podcast.
