I’m a Dreamer.

I believe there is something powerful about putting pen to paper to write our dreams down. Often times a dream may pass away if it's not recorded. I never want to let my dreams slip away because I know that God has placed them in my heart for a purpose. I want my dreams to become visions...
 
I dream of being an elementary school teacher.
It energizes me so much to think about the day that I'll have my own classroom. I have no idea what grade I'll end up teaching because I have such a love for each grade. Although, I'm especially fond of the primary grades (K-2). I want my passion for teaching to translate into a love of learning that is tangible in my classroom. I want my kids to know that when they walk into my classroom they walk into my heart as well.
 
I dream of being a leader to other teachers.
I want to combine my love of public speaking and passion for education by working with other teachers. I'm not sure how this one will come to pass...maybe I'll lead a workshop on curriculum or work with other teachers on improving a certain aspect of our school. This is a dream that will be many years in the making, but I know that I want to encourage teachers to love and find joy in teaching.
 
I dream of being a mama.
I realize that this is a dream ingrained in the heart of most women, but it's a dream of mine none the less. When I take a moment to think about the day I'll become a mama, I'm already overwhelmed with love for my future children. I can only imagine how much my heart will expand on that day. 
 
I dream of being an encourager.
I want to invest in people...specifically I want to invest in high school girls. I remember how much it meant and influenced me when "older" women invested in me during that time. I want for young women to know that God has beautifully gifted and that there is great value in being a woman. I want for them to know that God wants to script their love stories, and even more so wants them to have a love story with HIM.
 
I dream of marrying my best friend.
I desire for my marriage to be a testimony to God and that people will see Him through our relationship. There will be plenty of bumps on the road, but I want to grow in love as our lives intertwine in a way only a husband and wife can.
 
What are your dreams? I would love to know what's in your heart.

Beautiful post! I dream that despite my inadequacies I can have a positive impact on my 4th grade students. I also dream of being a mother.

I love your dreams - they are very similar to mine! I enjoy teaching, but my real passion is the relationship side of it. :) I one day decided maybe I could be the head of a country's education system... USA here I come! ;) I don't know that they'd want an Aussie girl tho...
I dream of being wife+mum, of travelling the world, of living out of a suitcase, of writing things that people actually read and of living big.
Thanks for sharing your dreams!

Keep on dreaming, girl! In God's time they will all become reality.

Such a lovely post! I love getting to know you more through these posts. You seem so passionate! All I know is that when I have children, you would be my dream teacher. What a wonderful soul you have :)

This list makes me so happy :) I know you're going to be an amazing wife, mother and teacher! I can tell by the way you put your heart and soul in your posts. I dream of bringing the hope of Jesus to Arab women and children. After seeing their situation up close I can't imagine doing anything else.
Blessings,
Tiff

A little odd, but organ donation is very important to me. I never thought I would feel as strongly about it as I do...but I do! :)
