    154 || Writing a Vision Statement for Your Dream || Merritt Onsa

    This episode is all about why you need to write a vision statement for your dream, how to do it, and how I’m willing to help you get this done. These steps have helped me so much in my dreaming process because they have forced me to get really honest about the dream, my role in it, God’s role in it, and how I want to share it with the world. Now I’m able to be more precise in defining what the dream actually is and helped me communicate it more eloquently to others.

She’s written several books on the topic of worth and hosts a podcast called What’s the Truth? tackling the lies we believe and how you can shift back to truth. In this interview we dig into the fear of being mediocre or irrelevant, knowing what season your dream is in and not running ahead of that, how to figure out if you’re striving for the wrong things, and Jessica’s best system for writing a book.

    152 || What Happens When You Let God Define Your Worth || Courtney Reimer

    Courtney Reimer is on a mission to not only help girls and women know and understand their worth but also to know why they have worth. This interview is a reminder that where we place our hope matters. As Christians we’ve likely heard or been part of conversations about our identity in Christ but living that out feels so complex. How do we place our identity in Him? What does that look like? How do we know if we’re even getting it right?

    Whether you’ve already started on your dream or you’re still in the starting blocks trying to figure out how to pivot as a result of changing circumstances, now is the time to think creatively about how to move forward and take messy action.

If the dream is there, it’s time for you to take the next step.

    150 || When You Struggle to Believe God is Good || Maria Hatch-Bowersock

    Whatever your circumstances right now, I pray this honest conversation with Maria Hatch-Bowersock about learning to trust God’s goodness will give you hope to present your requests to the Lord and persist in following Him. There is no worry too big for him; there is no amount of doubt He cannot handle. Maria’s story will help you press into Jesus and come out on the other side of today’s concerns with a deeper trust in God and a desire to abide with Him in all things.

    149 || God Uses Hardship to Transform Your Heart || Kara-Kae James

    When your circumstances feel overwhelming, it is difficult to imagine the abundant life Jesus offers or even to believe that it is available to you. This very struggle inspired Kara-Kae James to launch Thrive Moms, a ministry to encourage overwhelmed moms to believe that Jesus has something more for them besides exhaustion and isolation. In pursuit of this dream, Jesus also transformed Kara-Kae’s heart.

Breath of fresh air

When there’s so much hustling in the world of entrepreneurs, Merritt’s podcast is always a breath of fresh air. She has such a grounded, authentic presence and I always love the guests she brings onto the show.

I binged this show when I first discovered it at least a year ago, and now I’m a devoted listener (and dreamer)! Thanks for continuing to show up and share your voice Merritt!
