Creating Sophia

By: Autumn Elizabeth

Sometimes creativity is about creating a work of art, or a play, or something that the world considers artistic. Sometimes, creativity is about following a small voice to create something new, and this is how Searching Sophia’s Pockets came into being.

I created Searching Sophia’s Pockets, with the wonderful Jenni Taylor, because something inside of me, around me, above me, pushed me to create this site, this place of safe exchange, and meaningful discourse.

It has not been easy, to follow the voice that told me to create this site. Many times I have felt like someone lost in a dense forest. Many times I felt that I was the wrong person to create this site, that I had the wrong skills, too little time, too few resources.  Yet always, that small voice of God returned to me, pushed me to continue, to keep creating something beautiful.

In many ways, this site is the biggest creative undertaking of my life so far. Together with Jenni, I gave birth to this idea, and made it a reality. There is still lots of work to do, and lots more to create but together we are creating wisdom, changing lives, and bringing together people who thought they had nothing in common. We are showing the world the creative power of shared spiritual journeys.  Together, with all of you, we are constantly creating this thing called Sophia.
