Steal Like an Artist x Austin Kleon

I’m not completely sure how I came across this book, but I’ve had it for a while now. Though I’d skimmed it a time or two, I never took the time to read it, cover to cover… that was a mistake! It’s a short, easy read, but it’s full with great content! What I love most about “Steal Like an Artist” is its ability to use seemingly contradictory ideas to make meaningful points. Kleon urges readers to be creative in their lives, even if it doesn’t mean being an artist. I love that he uses the notion “There’s nothing new under the sun” as truth first, as it comes from the Bible (Ecclesiastes 1:9)… but in addition, it motivates us to build upon the world around us.

If you haven’t noticed, I’m all about the unconventional lifestyle! This books places unconventional thinking right at the center of practicality in a world full of conventional people. Give it a shot!

Happy Reading!

Hi, I'm Samantha (Sammie). I could define myself by the work I do, in title, but I'd rather share the characteristics of the type of person I not just want, but strive, to be. I am growing every day, learning to love and Trust God more, and in turn, loving myself and others just the same. Simply put, I want to change the world. I will use this blog and every platform I am opportune to stand upon to encourage youth, peers, and older adults alike. I pray that God will give me the courage to share the words to make a difference. You have the power to be victorious! 1 John 4:8 ". . .God is love." 1 Corinthians 13 (Initial Blog Post)
