Dream Killer

I had a dream.

I wanted to be a writer. I was a writer. I wrote on this blog.

And then I went to a conference for writers. Some of the other blog writers I had been friends with only online, I got to meet in person.

But they were chosen. I was not.

So I stopped writing. Disenchanted. Envious.

Why were they chosen and I was not? No one needs to hear my story. There’s someone else out there that can tell it and probably tell it better than me.

Dream Killer. That’s me.

Some people say that they can’t not write. To which I laugh and say I’ve been doing a pretty good job of ignoring God for several years now.

This weekend as I listened to Melissa Taylor talk about Dream Killers and Lisa Allen talk about The Rhythm of a Dream, I’m starting to wake up now.

I have a dream.

I want to be a writer. I am a writer. I am writing on this blog.

So this is me … being a Dream Killer Killer … No more killing my dreams. No more listening to the negative thoughts.

I am a writer. I just need to write.

  1. This made me cry. I’m so excited for you. You ARE a writer. Your words ARE important. So glad we’re friends 🙂


  2. I just want to be the first to say I AM SO PROUD OF YOU! Oh my! How God has used you in powerful ways through a ministry that writes, speaks and reaches women everywhere! I can’t wait for you to write and share your heart! Praying for you to be obedient! Just like you did now!

  3. I can’t tell you how much I saw this “bubbling” in you at dinner Thursday night. I am so excited to see this post. I want to be one of your dream champions. I believe when we follow God’s dream for us, it compliments and benefits our marriage, parenting and jobs. Somehow, because of the dream, we are better in all those areas. Seems like the dream could take away from those areas, yet in God’s plan, each is enhanced. SOOOOOO proud of you for this honest first step. Well done.

  4. It is so great to hear you heart! You ARE a writer and I can’t wait to see where The Lord leads you as you take the next step and do the next thing! ????

  5. I, for one, sure have missed your writing. It was a sweet surprise to see Simply His in my inbox this morning. I can totally relate, but I’m glad you chose to “kill” the “dream killer” and keep on writing. Someone needs to hear your story and no one can write it the way you can.
