She leans across the coffee shop table to say the words, “I have this desire in my heart….” Then she whispers the rest like a scandalous secret. At the end she takes a deep breath and asks, “Does any of that make sense?” I smile, nod and say, “Oh, yes, it makes beautiful sense. You have a God-sized dream.” “What’s a God-sized dream?” she asks with a cross between fear and excitement in her eyes. And I say this…
A God-sized dream is simply a desire in your heart for more of whatever it is He has for you.
So in many ways, God-sized dreams aren’t about size at all. They can be big or small in the world’s eyes. But they all matter equally. And we all have them–yep, even you.
Over the last few years, I’ve connected with thousands of women about God-sized dreams. That journey began as a series on my blog, turned into a book, influenced my work as a life coach, and led me to start a God-sized dream team last year. The women on that team and I had a deal: they’d help me spread the word about my book and I’d coach them in their dreams for the next six months.
But God had a lot more in mind. A whole lot more.
Out of that group came the women here who have founded this site. Women I’ve watched take brave steps, push past fear, make it through discouragement and celebrate victories. They’re a wonder to me. And being here on these pages with them is an honor.
That’s the thing about God-sized dreams: they start with you and then God takes them in all kinds of directions you never saw coming. I’m wildly cheering these women on in this new adventure and look forward to having my words here from time-to-time too.
I think if you asked the women behind this site they would tell you this:
There’s never a perfect time to begin a God-sized dream.
You don’t need to have it all together. You just need to do life together.
The greatest joys of the journey are the people you connect with along the way.
So now we’re reaching out to you and saying, “Come into this place. Lean across the table and whisper your dreams too. We’ll encourage you, cheer you on, and support you. You belong here.”
You’re a dreamer and a doer. A difference maker and a world changer. Even on the days it doesn’t feel like it. Maybe especially on those days. Our arms and hearts are wide open, ready to welcome you and your God-sized dreams…
