Pursuing Your God-Given Dream

I’m happy to guest post at Young Wives Club this week. Enjoy this preview, and hop over to their site to read the rest.


What dream hides in your heart? What did you want to be when you grew up? Has it come true, or is your dream still waiting?

When God gives you a dream, it won’t die. He planted it there and covered it with his timing. Some dream seeds sprout and grow quickly. Other dreams take a long, long time to see the light.

My dream was to be a writer. As a teen, I received confirmation that my dream was from God. I won contests, earned scholarships, and gained praise from peers and teachers. But that wasn’t the confirmation I needed.

    That’s a great post. I have been writing stories since age 6 (I will turn 40 in a week). I completely identify with your realizing your dream of being a writer. Writing comes easily for me too. I am now in the process of expanding beyond blogging and into copywriting and even ghostwriting for people. Keep up the good work.
