  1. This is exactly what I needed to read. With all the talk around blog land lately of BIG dreams and trusting God to show you the way, I’ve been wondering if I’m doing something wrong since I don’t have any. Not to say there’s anything wrong with having a big dream — that’s great, and if there weren’t people with big dreams, lots of awesome things wouldn’t exist. My dream has always been to be a stay-at-home mom, though, and I am living it. Lately, I have felt like I’m not living it well. I’ve been discontent. Thank you for this reminder that my job as a mom is important, and really is a God-sized dream-come-true. Where I am right now is enough, and I need to make the most of it by making the most of the little moments.

    I’d love to get the bracelet, God sized dreams. Where could I get one?
