Common Ground


City lights 2

I don’t fly often, but when I do, I really love flying when the sky is dark. The lights from the towns and cities below twinkle and shine.

Those lights tell a story.

They represent each one of you. Several months ago I flew back home from Texas to Minneapolis, and I couldn’t help but think of all the dreamers that were in the homes below. Each of you, sweet sisters, who are walking this journey with us. You live on farms and in big cities. You work full-time outside of the home and you are stay-at-home moms. You dream BIG dreams and you shake in your boots at naming your dream out loud.

You wonder if you are too old or too broken for this dreaming business. Maybe you look up at the skies when planes are flying overhead and you wonder if God will ever take you outside of your own backyard. Or you have long stopped dreaming because it just seems like God only gives dreams to the people who “have it all together.”

I want to encourage you, sweet sister. Your dream matters! There is no dream too small or  insignificant or even too radically crazy for us here.

This is a place where we meet on common ground. (<====Click to Tweet)

We come here seeking encouragement and hope. We need to know we are not alone. Whether we’re dreaming from a small city in Minnesota or a ranch in Texas, we can gather here in this space and share a common vision – To seek God,  to be a light, and to use our unique gifts in big, God-sized ways, to honor and glorify the One who made us.

It is my prayer that you will find this site is a place of commonality. We are here to cheer you on in whatever dream God has placed on your heart! We want to offer hope for those of you who may feel discouraged about where you are in the “dreaming process.” We celebrate your successes and pray over roadblocks. It is one of the reasons that I love our guest posts each Wednesday. From all over the world, dreamers have come to us with their stories. We have been entrusted with them and it has been an honor to be a cheerleader for each of you as you step out into the sometimes crazy plan God has for you!

Comparisons are left at the door and we enter this space in unity. Remembering that while each of us is at a different stage and place in our journey, we can always find a common ground to stand upon!

Thank you sweet sisters for joining us here each week. We are so blessed by this community and are excited to see where God leads us!  As we walk together, is there any way we can be lifting you up in prayer? Please leave your prayer request in the comments below and know, as a team, we will be praying for you!
