revive your creativity &…

commune with the Creator. embrace your Spirit filled talents. birth beauty.

There is a creative crisis in many people as they age, and this is backed up by some pretty crazy data – 98% of 5 year olds score at “Genius Level” in creativity, whereas just 2% of adults do (average age 31) in a study by researcher George Land.

Now I want to draw together two pieces of information I don’t think get mashed up enough:

  • 98% of 5 year old are insanely creative
  • Matthew 18:3 – “Amen, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.”

{Now, before anyone gets mad, I’m NOT saying creativity is essential to your salvation.}

But I AM saying that in a world that makes it pretty hard to preserve innocence, creativity is a lovely path back to:

child-like trust, openness,  joy, wonder, & healing

So when is the last time you sat down and did something creative, just becauseWould you even know how?

Creativity is a muscle (like virtues, and, well, actual muscles) and they only work if we do. Neglect of our muscles leads to atrophy.

In the face of the widespread creative atrophy I’ve witnessed in my own life and social circle, I’ve created this free resource package for you full of small ways to kickstart your creativity and integrate it with your faith in ways you never imagined.

This resource is totally free for your personal use and you may reprint the resources included, like the coloring sheets and list printables over and over.

who we are & why we care about your creativity:

My name is Jill Simons and I am Creative Director and Founder here at Pink Salt Riot. 

If you’re hearing about Pink Salt Riot for the first time on this page you might be wondering who the heck we are.

{And that’s great, because wonder is an awesome starting point for creativity!}

By traditional definitions we are a Christian jewelry and gifts company, but we aren’t the super traditional types. We do offer incredible, unique, products, made by women right here in Oklahoma, but we see our products are part of our service to a greater mission: reviving the hearts and minds of Christians around the world.

So many people are going through the motions. So many people have high ideals on Sunday mornings that don’t make it through the afternoon’s football game. 

It’s all because we’re fallen people. Sometimes our best intentions stay just that: intentions.

It’s my job to think about how we can consistently and helpfully bridge the gap between what we know we want and need spiritually and what we actually do

And we do this with jewelry, stickers, free packages of goodies, lock screens, and more.

We do it with whatever we can get our hands on.

Because anything can matter if it brings someone to Christ. 


we’re all in this together. we believe that.

here’s what people are saying about our Revive Creativity resource package:

I just wanted to say thank you for putting the Revive Creativity resource together that was sent via email yesterday. I never thought about how being creative can bring us closer to God. It is really inspiring, and I’m excited to bring more creativity into my life and share my gifts with others. Thank you for being a positive resource and company.

I LOVED receiving this email … Not gonna lie, I usually skim them (no offense at all! — just soooo many emails), but something made me stop and read this one all the way through. I’m so glad I did. I’ve been struggling with this creative mindset, and I definitely have not been kind to myself as I try to be more creative … I tell myself I’m not creative enough, not exciting enough, interesting enough … enough. But your words ABSOLUTELY revived something in me, and I’m so grateful for that.
