The challenge this week? To find a God Sized Dream story that inspires. Who am I’m inspired by?
The writer who walks the road of refinement seeking more Jesus, always more Jesus and less of herself and publishes the book with much talent and even greater faith. Words written the early hours before homeschooling and motherhood and being wife take over and her heart can connect with the page for brief moments. This writer-friend who pours vulnerable self onto the page so that the rest of us can walk this Lenten journey knowing that we have a sister who stands with us. The one who does the hard kingdom work and wrestles daily before, during and after the writing because she knows her God is faithful and has claimed the victory.
Kris Camealy inspires.
And the woman who finds a dream planted in her heart and watches it grow only to wait years before seeing what God truly has planned. The friend who raises her own children from toddler years to adulthood and then allows God to pursue her to countries unknown to help rescue babies that she’ll hold and love but never raise. This beautiful heart who shines Jesus more than anyone I’ve ever met, who speaks with tears in her eyes over the hurting least of these and isn’t waiting for them to ask for help but goes and takes it to them.
Michele-Lyn Ault inspires.
Finally. The woman who believes in me. The one who encourages because that’s how God made her and she would do it even if she wasn’t a writer or visionary or speaker. The friend who knows what it’s like to work full-time, raise a family, be a wife, but know deep in her heart that God has more planned but trusts in His timing to provide generously. And she tells the stories of how He does answer prayer and she flings open the doors to invite women to come and find community because her heart follows Jesus. This writer-(in)courager mama who loves on mamas because she knows what it’s like to be in the hard parts of it and she has been and will always be our biggest cheerleaders.
Lisa Jo Baker inspires.

I love each of these women too. We need each other don’t we? Women need each other to become fully who God created us to be. Lovely tribute to some saints of God.
Seriously, how am I going to get on with my morning after this? You have me undone. I just want to fall to my knees in gratitude and worship. Thank you, beyond thanks. Oh, how my heart needed this encouragement this morning. I love you, friend. I love you.
