~~~~~~~~~~~
HER LATEST BOOK is Imagine the Future You, a motivational Bible study  for youth.

The intriguing thing about our dreams is we’re always the “Star.”  Comedy, romance, murder                     mystery, drama, documentary of a heroine—there we are in the middle of everything.
When we’re awake we also star in our dreams. Dream big and work toward your goals and you’ll         write a story with your life that might amaze you. Whether your story is a tragedy or a cherished classic         depends on who you want to become and if you pursue your dreams.

If you continue to do or not do what you practice now, what kind of future do you imagine for                  yourself?
