A New Place to Find Words that Will Encourage You

I believe in the power of words. To heal. To help. To encourage our hearts. To change our lives. Maybe that’s why when I go to someone’s house, I always love sneaking a peek at what’s on their bookshelves {you too?}. And it’s the reason I’m creating a new spot called my bookshelf in the little bookshop I started in honor of my grandparents.

31 Days of Prayer for the Dreamer and Doer

A book I’ve just added to my shelf that I think will encourage you as you start a new year is 31 Days of Prayer for the Dreamer and Doer. Creators Jenn Sprinkle and Kelly Rucker describe it this way:

The prayers, scripture and questions that fill these pages are written to accompany you on the journey of brilliant dreams and scary risks, weary struggles and joyful success, inspiring ideas and fears of failure….all in light of how God has created you to be and to do all things well….not perfectly, but {well}.

I’ve written, spoken and coached women about God-sized dreams for years. And here’s what I’ve learned: the journey to your dream is always harder, lonelier and longer than you think it will be. You would never set out on a hike without taking water with you. And that’s what 31 Days of Prayer for the Dreamer and Doer is — the refreshment your soul needs to keep going.

The book is a compilation of prayers from women who are on the journey to their dreams, too. You’ll recognize many of their names and others will be new to you. Their words will help you feel understood and remind you that you’re not the only one who faces struggles, fears and obstacles. We’re all in this together.

I believe every woman has dreams, desires and hopes deep inside her. Yes, even if you have never called yourself a “dreamer.” Sometimes we just get a little lost along the way and need help getting back to where we belong and moving forward in God’s plans for us. What better time to make those changes than the start of a new year?

I’m cheering you on as you start a new year — and all your sisters in 31 Days of Prayer for the Dreamer and Doer will too.

31 Days of Prayer for the Dreamer & Doer Quote

Comparison is the paralyzer of dreams. Your calling, your purpose, and your dreams are yours. Hold on to them tight, because the enemy is going to try and steal them by convincing you they are not as worthy or valuable as someone else’s.
