So you tell me

What is your dream?

What is the one thing in life that you want to do more than anything else?

What is it that drives you?

Now I don't want a "soft" answer. I want something tangible and achievable with substance in your answer.

Then I want to know why you chose that and how it is going?

In the words of a HORRIBLE band, but the anthem of my entire dorm floor my freshman year in college

Tell me what you want, what you really, really want.

"I want to know what love is"

Sorry, it was the first thing that came to mind.

I want to help people to see the transforming power and love of God. I feel that love is the chief motivating factor that is driving me to do so. I love the Lord more than words can describe and feel I have been given a gift by having an enthusiastic heart for God. I also have a love for people and it is this love that is motivating me. I am concerned about the world we live in and I am convinced that only through God’s help can people change.

Having seen God’s transforming power in people’s lives is a major reason for why I want to help. Still taking steps to better equip myself - work in progress.

Cav - great answer, but WHAT exactly do you want to do to accomplish that. I know I'm pushing here but what is something tangible that will encompass that want. Specifics babe, specifics.

Interesting question Katie. I'm going to have to ponder and return to this.

...still taking steps to better equip myself. Applying to grad schools. Seminary - bibical counseling. I have everything in for my applications - say a prayer for me. Hopefully I will get the opportunity to commit myself to 3 years of bibial studies and clinical psychology. Will have to become certified by the state. Go under a practicum. Praying.

I feel honored to have this God-given inclination that this is something I must pursue.

There are other wants...but I guess you could call those desire - the idea of marriage sounds attractive, kids...etc. But I have given all that to JC.

I think I'm going to avoid this one. I'm in the infancy stages of prayer in terms of my life-long ministry, that I believe God has just recently spoke into my life about a few directions in which I should be heading. In terms of my career.. we're working on that too.

No pressure Stephanie, if you didn't notice I conveniently left off my answer.

I'm open to hear any plans (tentative or settled) that you have. I'm just interested what other people dream of doing, even if it is in the infant stages.

jeesh... going for the jugular on this one...

I want to Follow God's will for me in my life and not be ashamed or afraid to do so. I want to raise Godly children who respect God and family and like to mow lawns.

GWHDS! (like "dead-heads" but the follow the President instead of a Hippie Rock band)

Steve - ok not to be pushy and that was a GREAT answer and want but be more specific. WHAT do you want? Tangible, attainable, specific.

I know I'm pushing people to get out of the "safe" answer but I am really contemplating this myself and I'm wanting to hear other's thoughts.

So be SPECIFIC, EXACT. Noone said that this was binding and I know we all have dreams.

my dream is to make a living playing music for God. Writing songs that touch people's lives and bring them closer to the Lord. I would most like to be a recording artist the travels the world doing God's work and also be a worship leader at a church. Mat Redman, Chris Tomlin and the likes do this perfectly. I am trying to get my music and my ministry in fromt of the "right" person so that this might happen.

I knew it was there, just wanted to make you SAY it.

I've realized that saying things makes them more real, more solid. Thanks for stepping out there and saying it. You're a good sport.

Cav you stepped up also - I gleaned you want to be a counselor with a Christian focus. Awesome.

Okay... out of my safe zone... here I come!

I want to minister to women in the form of a book: specifics to come at a later date... but this is a STRONG desire of mine. A desire that I believe the Lord has planted in my heart due to some painful experiences in my life; he's told me to turn the bad into good.

I want to record an album or two (I'm already in motion on that one.) And minister to lost souls through song (which I already do: I would just like to do it on a grander scale.)

I also want to be a nurse and help people for a living (I think. I'm pretty sure I had affirmation on this one from God, I'm just double-checking now. I don't like blood. Go figure.)

Lastly but definitly not least(-ly?)lol, I want to be a wife. I want to be a good mother to an army of Godly children (I'm an only child- I'm suffering from the grass-is-always-greener-syndrome), and raise them to have the priveledge of knowing the Lord from little on.

Go Stephanie - Stepping out. Those sound amazing and I hope and pray that they are all realized dreams. I love the book dream.

I want to be able to travel on mission trips, helping and serving. Like they do in Titus II international. I love the NYC mission trips with the SWEAT TEAM. It ministers to me spiritually, emotionally, all while I'm traveling. Best of all worlds!

Love it JCol - combining a passion you love with a ministry your heart desires. That fits you perfectly. I would love to see you go with Titus II and minister to women, you would be amazing at that.

My dream is to be a mom.

It's as though everything in my life has lead up to that point. We don't care if it's fostering, adoption or our own... OK we'd really like our own, but hey! It doesn't matter really.

When I was in first grade, I wrote a little story that when I grow up, I want to be a mommy. I have always had that dream and for whatever reason, God's timing is not lining up with my own.

After many many prayers and 12.5 years of waiting, Rob and I stand firm in our belief that the blessings God has promised us will come about soon.
