Encourage One Another

Encouragement is a powerful gift.
We all need someone in our life to offer that gift.

Someone to say Stay on This Path.
Someone to say Do It Scared.
Someone to say I Believe in Your Dreams.
Someone to say Never Stop Praying.
Someone to say You Can Do This.

It is a wonderful thing to have an encourager in your life, 
but it's is even more so to be married to that person.
You see, D is my partner in all things.

When I shared my God-sized dream, he said...
"This is what He created you for, babe."
When I shared about my fears, he said...
"Trust Him and all He has for you, babe."
When I shared my discouragement, he said...
"He's preparing you for something great, babe."
When I shared about my doubts, he said...
"You can do this, babe. I believe in you."

He doesn't just give the gift of encouraging words, 
he also prays with me and for me. 
His constant prayer through this has been 
"God do something greater in her and through her."

Not only do I have an encourager in my husband, 
but I also have a God-sized dream "buddy" - Jenn.
I am so blessed to be paired with her as we walk out what God is calling us to do. 
I am so looking forward to all He has in store for us in this journey.

God always goes above and beyond what I could possibly imagine and also gave me the gift of a group of incredible women that have become sisters to me - NikkiMandyMichele-LynTereasaJenniStaceyMary BethTobiHeather, and Kara. Love that we are walking through life together offering encouragement and prayer. What a blessing they are to me.

Who is walking with you?
Who is encouraging you?

God-Sized Dreams

My friend Holley Gerth invited me to join a group of dreamers that she affectionately calls her God Sized Dream Team. What a blessing to be part of this group. 
We will be gathering each week on Tuesdays at Holley's to encourage each other and you to dream those God sized dreams.

Won't you join us?
What is your God-sized dream?
