This morning I drew “grow down” on a whiteboard for my Spiritual & Leadership Development students… and I learned something. I learned that even though my brain and hands have diagramed “grow down” hundreds of times in dozens of locations, on paper or whiteboard or napkins (which is also paper I suppose) or dirt with sticks or chalkboard or iPad, I haven’t gotten any better at drawing it. It still looks messy and frenzied.

Oh Well! What a joy this message is to my own soul… and I pray for my students as well. Personally I need this reminder constantly… To root myself into Jesus daily.

P.S. If you have some advice on improving this, I’d take it! It is time to challenge myself to let out the creative artistry buried deep inside of me somewhere. The next time I draw this… may it be even more awesome.


The book’s art looks cooler:


  1. Thanks for sharing! It seems every time I see this model I notice something new about Jesus, this time “Rebel” sticks out. The perfectly obedient one to the Father was the ultimate rebel to our worldly systems. So great, keep on sharing this work!
