In this Bonus Episode of the Next Step Podcast, all of the Visual Faith Illustrators for When from Death I’m Free: A Hymn Journal for Holy Week join author and Next Step Press founder Justin Rossow to talk about their experience as artists. After an opening prayer and introductions, we get to hear the artists reflect on what it was like to see other people interact with their art. We’ll hear more about their favorite things to draw and what the creative process is like for them. These illustrators will share what they will remember from this hymn journal experience and wonder together about what next step Jesus is shaping in their lives.

You can find the discipling questions they discuss on pages 127-128 of the book and artist biographies on pages 135-137.

This episode of the podcast was recorded on Zoom, an online meeting platform, because we were still under shelter-in-place orders related to COVID-19. The video of this interview is available on the Next Step Press YouTube Channel.
