God Sized Dream


Today I am sharing my dream with the world. It makes me incredibly nervous but here goes.
My life statement tells my dream in simply form so here goes:
I believe that God created me to encourage other mothers and women by believing in them and offering them community, friendship, and encouragement.
I want to encourage other women- other moms- who struggle with today's call to be supermom and feel like they are failing. I want to encourage others who feel alone like I do since deciding to stay at home. I want to build community and friendships for these women through my blog and maybe one day a book. But for 2013 (because I am not superwoman or supermom) my dream is to encourage you. To build you up. To help you and I grow with God and to not feel alone. I want to help you and me both become better moms because we are better woman. Through encouragement, through scripture, through community. I dream that I reach women all over the world and that somehow my words and my personal struggles encourage them to keep going and not give up, to stand a little taller and be more confident. To know that they are not alone.
What is your dream for 2013? Where do you need encouragement? Let me know and I will pray for you and encourage you however I can.

Linking up today with the amazing Holley Gerth and the rest of my Dream Team.

  1. Oh, you took the first step - you shared your dream - put it out there in black and white - congrats! I did the same thing today. It was hard to hit that 'publish' button, wasn't it?! But we did it! yay!

    Also, from one stay-at-home mom to another - I have no doubt it was the right thing for my family - that those years of being home when they were little were worth everything I gave up working. My girls are 9 & 11 now, but I still only work part-time (as a substitute teacher) so that I can be home with them during summers and breaks. I can see all benefits this brings our family and I'm so thankful. Glad you are here to encourage other moms.

    Also, have you read any of Jill Savage's stuff? She's got a new book coming out called "No More Perfect Moms" that looks really good!

  2. I haven't read any of Jill Savage's stuff but I am currently reading the new one by Sarah Mae and Sally Clarkson called "Desperate". It is really good and I feel like they are talking right to me. I will look at the Jill Savage book and read it to. I am glad that I stay at home and still work every once in awhile because it gives me breathing time. I am actually sending my oldest back to public school next year and maybe the other two that I home school because it is alot to have on my plate and I feel it. But I will not go back to work anymore than I am now so that I am still with them. Thank you for the encouragement!
