Kate Prado, Book of Proverbs, Bil Cornelius, Sarah Ban Breathnach


Dear Readers,

About the greatest gift you can give to a child is to encourage them
to dream; to tell them they should pursue what's in their hearts.
Is the Lord any different with His children? And He will walk
with us along the way. So yes, be persistent and learn from
your mistakes. Ask for help along the way and proceed
prudently yet courageously. But you might want to
also let the Lord be on your dream team.

You can take everything,

including my life,

but you cannot take my dream.

For God has sewn it

into my soul,

and together

we are a team.

-Kate Prado

From her book of poetry, "The Dreamer's Daughter"
McDougal Publishing, 2010


All the ways of a man may be pure in his own eyes,
but it is the Lord who proves the spirit.
Entrust your works to the Lord,
and your plans will succeed.

Proverbs 16:2-3
New American Bible


Something powerful gets unleashed in us
when we start pursuing our dreams. We become
partners with God and real change happens--not
overnight, but little by little, until we
are utterly transformed.

Bil Cornelius
Author, founder and pastor of Bay Area Fellowship,
Corpus Christi, Texas



When you start following your authentic path, you're finally
using the gifts Spirit expects you to use. You're actively
searching for the Kingdom of Heaven here on earth.
You're holding up your end of the bargain...

From "Simple Abundance,"
by Sarah Ban Breathnach
Warner Books, 1995

The Last Word:

Sometimes the difference between someone
who receives God's blessing on a dream and
someone who doesn't is that the first
guy simply sticks with it longer.

Bil Cornelius
Author, founder and pastor of Bay Area Fellowship,
Corpus Christi, Texas






























































Utterly Random Bonus Quote:

Always be a first-rate version of yourself,
