A raw and authentic outlook from a Artist that knows God's purpose is bigger than we could ever imagine. Audrey Bailey is the owner and artist behind Brush and Barley where she strives to intertwine her faith with worship through creating, mental health advocacy, into her passion of art. As a business owner, Christian, Wife and a mother of two Audrey not only wants to share entrepreneurship but also the things behind the scenes the audience never sees. Here we break the barrier and have open and real conversations about anything and everything that feel needs to be heard without fear. Your purpose is there just waiting for you to tap in and give the faith. We want to discuss those raw topics in seasons of life that may be holding you back, and we also want to discuss the successes that come when you say no to fear. If you are ready to tap into that calling and purpose you know God has for you, or if you feel a little broken and sometimes feels like you are not worthy of that purpose please come hang out. We want you to leave her ready to conquer fear and achieve that purpose, with Jesus and us on your side. "And he took my broken pieces, and he painted them" - Audrey Bailey

How to Worship Through Creating

When you hear “worship through creating” you might wonder what exactly that means. For me, this means worshipping God by using talents, hobbies, and skills God has given you and making beautiful things with it. God gave us these talents, and what better way to use them than to use them in His name? Worship through creating is not just about creating what I want to create. It’s about bringing him into the narrative and the creation itself.    On the newest episode of the Painted Pieces Podcast, I share why worship through creating is so important to me, and if you are looking to start worshipping through art, tune in to hear the steps I take to make sure I’m getting God’s word in full and also listening to His voice as I bring a creation to life.    Follow Callie Ammons on Instagram: @callieammons Follow me on Instagram: @brushandbarley My Etsy Shop

Chanel Perfume and Self-Worth

Have you ever held your self-worth up against a material object?  I know I have, and I dive deep into that story in today’s episode.  We all have things in our life that make us feel good, that are maybe slightly materialistic. We know they won’t fix our problems, yet we lean into them as a way to feel good about ourselves - sometimes too much. And let’s just say that Chanel perfume became more than just a little liquid in a bottle for me.  I hope this story inspires you if you’re struggling with materialism, or simply focusing on the wrong things, and serves as a reminder of where your self-worth and purpose truly comes from.   Follow me on Instagram: @brushandbarley My Etsy Shop

Being an Introvert in the Public Eye

This topic is very near to my heart, and I’ve also seen a lot more about it on social media. Not necessarily because it’s a trend, but people are more willing to take the term “introvert” and make it something positive. Still, there’s a lot of stigma around introverts: We’re a bore, we’re too shy, we don’t have ambition. When really, we can be big dreamers with a lot of motivation in life. In this episode, I talk about: How I approached my account going viral unexpectedly Why “just do it” and “change your mindset” can be dangerous messages Finding the root cause/trigger of your social anxiety Using introvertedness as an excuse And more! If you too are an introvert, you might find encouragement in this, knowing that you’re not alone. And all you extroverts out there can better understand your introvert friends!    Follow me on Instagram: @brushandbarley My Etsy Shop
