The Live Your Life With Joy Workbook

Growing Your Creativity

I’ve crafted a book for anyone wanting to break through your barriers with creative ways to live your most joyful life. Your creative identity is organically your own. The person you are today is seeded with your life’s experiences. This book helps you dig deep and examine your own creative roots, so you can ensure that you are giving yourself the nutrients you need to blossom.

The Idea for the Book

The idea behind Growing Your Creativity is that if you understand how creativity works in your unique life, then you can apply it to all aspects of your life. A life lived creatively is a life filled with joy.

How it Works

Growing Your Creativity Is a process book. Each week builds upon the previous week. There are questions and tools that will help you dig deep into who you are. Your creative life and your life are intertwined. Understanding why you do things a certain way allows you to make adjustments and helps you understand why you do things the way you do.

What it Covers

The book shows you how to see the details of your life that you might not be paying attention to. It explores your creative process, your pivotal moments, your gift, your strengths, and your biggest dream.


Growing Your Creativity will show you where you are on your creative journey. It will help you to imagine and create the life you want. It will allow you to live in the present moment and to own the strengths you already have. It is a guide to living your life with joy.

Who Can Use the Book

This book is for anyone who wants his or her life enriched. If you are in a rut or want to understand your innate creativity better, this book is for you. If you are in a life transition, empty nest, suddenly single, job change, relocated, or ready for a change, this book is for you. If you don’t know what you want to do, but know it’s time to grow, this book is for you.

Our Unique Creative Process

We each have our own unique process for creativity. How we address problems, find solutions and resolve obstacles to achieve a successful conclusions.

Our Story

There are pivotal moments throughout our lives that shape us and move us in directions. What if you were able to watch your character in a play would you see yourself more objectively.

I met Connie McLeod more than thirty years ago, in a land known as Louisiana. She was then and is now a creative force – talented, kind, industrious, a straight-shooter. She has put together a beautiful book that invites you to organize your life around those things you love (like yourself) and those things you would like to create or do or share with others. I want to call it a journal – and it is – but it is so much more than that. It’s a guide, and it’s also an invitation, a blank slate, that asks you to join in and be her co-author on the journey you’re about to begin. It is utterly unique, like Connie McLeod and like you. Check it out. Do as I say. The book is called GROWING YOUR CREATIVITY. There are samples and an order opportunity on the website below.
