i also am blessed to be part of a Leading and Loving It – ConnectLIVE group that so makes a difference as i live out life and ministry – these women inspire me to love God, love people, to be real and to go deep before i go wide.  so appreciate their courage and encouragement.


i’m also a great fan of “going out for coffee” (which for me ususally means an L&P, or some green tea) with real life friends… there is nothing better than talking with people about what is going on in and through our lives.  i’ve just hooked up to have regular meets with an inspiring woman in our church, someone that in real life can be there for me and encourage me and slap me into a reality check if i need it!


one of the greatest sources of inspiration and dream food is regular time with Jesus.  He is the Dream Giver and the Dream Maker.  you’ve got to go deep before you can go wide.  yip i said it before, but its that good.  another way to say it is you’ve got to sit before you can serve (think mary and martha).  both quotes are by holly furtick and have resonated with me this year.  i love fresh worship and this year have loved Hillsong United, Bethel Church, Elevation Worship, Will Reagan, Phil Wickham and Jesus Culture.  Kim Walker Smith’s album STILL BELIEVE has also been my go to worship hot zone.


whatever you do, be feeding your dream.  find sources of inspiration, be them real life people or words in a book, or on a screen.

find which stirs your hearts affection and passion for your dream.
