Discover Your Dream Pt 2: Get Going

  Last week you took the first steps to discover your dream by considering them from God’s perspective. Did you get a chance to answer the brief questions to help uncover clues to God’s dream for you? If not, click here and scroll down, the questions are towards the end of the post. Then prepare to discover your dream and get going! 🙂 “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” Walt Disney I wonder how many hopes have been crushed on the steps of promises like that?

My son turned twelve this week. At least I think it was my son. I say this because he is so different than he was just six months ago.
