The Death of a Dreamer… Warning: Serious Stuff

Today’s blog is a bit different… The news out of Lakeland, Florida concerning the arrest of two young girls in connection with the suicide of a third compels me to write this blog. With the death of Rebecca Sedwick came the death of her dreams. The death of her hopes, and plans, and thoughts of…

The Junior Dreamer Brigade

Dreamers breed dreamers. My husband is a dreamer of the giant, “I want to change the world” type of dreams. My dreams aren’t as earth shattering, but to me, they’re compelling nonetheless. We’ve spent our nearly 30 years of marriage discussing, dissecting, and disseminating our dreams. The result? A house full of young dreamer wannabees.…

What If Your Dreams Could Come True?

All my kids came home to visit this weekend. All eight of them… I’d forgotten how busy, and silly, and LOUD my house could be when the whole family is together. Our time together was refreshing.

This answer is going to seem just too simple, but here it is. You’re dream becomes your reality when you “say” it is your reality. When you say “It,” you become “It”. Stop! Don’t panic! I’m not talking about some kind of New-Agey, “If you think it’s so it must be so,” philosophy. No, it’s really…

Joseph the Dreamer

I have to be honest… Writing a Sunday blog is strange for me. Sunday is usually a day off… A day of afternoon naps, chicken wings, chips, football, and worship. (Not necessarily in that Order!) But honestly, what better day to look at the incredible dreamers in Scripture? These 31 Days will afford me 4 Sundays…
