“He transformed my life as a new creation in Christ and from there it’s just been an on going run.”- Nehemiah Ray, CEO of Corny Creations and Spoken Word Artist
NR: What’s going on, I’m Nehemiah. I am a spoken word artist and entrepreneur. I love nature, I love God and I love people.
NR: Corny Creations. Basically what we do is we take God’s beautiful artwork and we transform and personalize it just for you. We’re all about taking God’s beauty (because it is better looking than any man-made art) and transforming it.
NR: I guess I’ll give you the snippet. It’s a couple of different things. I was outside praying one day and I just saw some beautiful, hand-crafted, nature art and I just felt like it could be designed for something more. [Since] I read a lot about George Washington Carter, I know he use to always have a flower that he kept on him all the time, and I was like oh I want something kinda like that. So I then found an acorn and started it like that.
NR: You said acorns? So, acorns are beautiful things. You see they are brown just like that skin tone in my… ringtone ha ha ha I don’t know but acorn… we go by corny because you’re conscience of the riches… those are bars.
NR: I think college is a real important time, especially for a believer. Everything is getting pushed at you so far as music, sex, drugs. We have a lot of identity crisis that goes on at this time. One thing I suggest is being rooted and grounded in the Word. I really suggest finding some good friends, a good church and really spending a lot of intimate time with Christ. Also, reading your Bible, meditating on the Word and really watch the influences that you let into your mind, things of that nature.
EXCLUSIVE: Nehemiah’s Testimony
NR: Both of my parents loved God so I was raised in the church. Towards high school I strayed away and I left everything.From there I got involved with a lot of drugs, women and things that weren’t Christ centered.After graduating from college, I came home and my mom suggested I visit the church that she was attending. During that time, they were preparing for the 21-day fast and I figured I could participate in it.
So my friend James and I participated in the fast. It was tough you know because we did the Daniel’s fast where their is no meat, no sweets, no fried foods, no sex, no alcohol, no drugs or anything like that.Once we completed the fast, I asked the Lord to give me a fire for Him.I believed He was real, but I didn’t know Him for my own relationship.
It didn’t happen the first or the second week but just one day He lit a fire inside of me. He transformed my life as a new creation in Christ and from there it’s just been an on going run.
