Do you dare to dream anymore?

Can you still remember that one thing you always wanted to do or be?

Has life crowded your dreams out?

Tomorrow morning my interview with Focus on the Family is going to air. To say I'm a bit nervous is a teensy bit of an understatement. I'm not just nervous. I'm I-feel-like-throwing up-nervous. Each time I feel a bit queasy  I turn my anxiety into a reminder to pray for every busy mom who might turn on her radio in between filling her dishwasher or driving to work.

So, what's my greatest dream? Encouraging women.

I just had no idea God would make my dream a reality, turn it into a book and launch it out to the world. 

I shared with Paul, "I still can't wrap my head around the fact that I'm going to be on Focus on the Family tomorrow."

"Why not?"

"It's just such a big deal to me. I never thought my little book would get this far. I never even prayed those kinds of prayers. It was a dream I never thought would happen, so I didn't even ask for it." I smiled.

"You don't dream big enough. Apparently, you've forgotten how big God is.." He smiled back.

What about you? Do you dream big enough? Do you realize just how BIG your God is?

If you're thoughts are filled with lots of Not me. I can't. It's too hard. It will never happen. kinds of thoughts then you have most definitely forgotten.

Today is the day. Take out a piece of paper and start writing down your dreams. It's about time you see with your own eyes just what it is God might have in store for you.

Joanne, I was listening to Focus this morning and heard the interview. You did an amazing job and sounded like you have been doing interviews like this for years. Very natural, very relaxed and well spoken. So excited for what the Lord has in store for you and your family. Congratulations to you all. :) Rochelle (Cross) Wilson
