Music for The Soul Podcast


Jul 12, 2023

Creativity is the tool that allows anyone, including artists, songwriters, and musicians, to bring to life stories and ideas from their experience in a way that resonate with others. From music to movies to books to even conversations, creativity allows us to create in a way that people can understand and enjoy. So how do we encourage creativity in our lives and in the lives of our kids?
 
That is why we are so excited to have songwriter Gina Boe on today's episode of the Music for the Soul Podcast. Gina shares her story of songwriting throughout her life and the common thread of hope that was woven into her work. She was then diagnosed with breast cancer on New Year's Eve of 2020 and began to realize how the thread of hope provided encouragement not only for others, but for herself as she walked through that diagnosis. 
 
Gina also speaks on fostering creativity in our kids, and why it is so imporant to nurture the creative natures and passions of children as they grow up. She explains that the true goal of an artist and their creativity is that we were "Created by a Creator to be Creative."
