Sue Monk Kidd & Creativity

In this video Sue Monk Kidd shares her journey of creative writing. It is shown that creativity is a rewarding process that one takes it with passion and watching for synchronicity.

 Ten years ago Sue Monk Kidd was a traditionally grounded Christian writer. But like her engaging narrator Lily Owens, Kidd is on a spiritual journey, heralded by her 1996 nonfiction work The Dance of the Dissident Daughter and confirmed in this captivating first novel [The Secret Life of Bees] about love and forgiveness. Guided by bees and a group of women devoted to a black Madonna, 14-year-old Lily Owens embarks upon a spiritual quest that carries her through the shadow of racism and her own spiritual suffering and brings her to adulthood.
