At the end of Chapter One, Holley challenges us to create a vision board. My amazing friend Beth Vogt is already on hers. Mine is still in my mind. This weekend I’m headed to Wal-Mart or anywhere to get my poster board and start creating.
However, I already know some of the themes that will go on it. I dream of traveling. Seeing more of the world than I already have. God has already answered some of that dream by allowing my family to leave in Germany for eight weeks the summer of 2012. But as so often happens, that just whetted my appetite for more!
I’m living a dream by teaching at a Big Ten University. As I’ve been exploring this topic, God reminded me that my dream as a sophomore in college was to get my Ph.D. and teach international relations at a university. Instead I got my J.D. and teach in the business law area, but I’m still teaching and I LOVE it.
The dream of writing was birthed in my at about 13 or 14. While the dream had to lie dormant for a season, when God said run, He meant it!
I dream of helping women find the courage and vision to chase the dreams God either shouts or whispers. But I also want fresh vision. What’s God dream for me right now? Is there something new He wants me to explore? How will He use this MBA He has me getting?
Dreaming is a process. Where are you in the journey? Have you finished your vision board? Started it? Email it to me at cara at caraputman dot come and I’d love to share it with others. I’m also creating a Pinterest board where we can share these.
