Last week I introduced a dream of mine in this post about how I would like to start a fitness group of some sort where I can encourage moms to set an exercise goal of and motivate them along way until they reach achievement. I was blown away by the kind words of encouragement and excitetment I received through your comments and some texts (thanks Dad!). You all sure do know how to make a girl feel good! Thank you! I am very excited to see what will come out of me actually saying my dream aloud. Still a bit nervous yes but that keeps me humbled and reminds me that this dream is from God and not my own. I know anything that will come out of it will be His doing and me following in obedience. So let’s GO!
As I also mentioned I am not alone in this whole dreaming big thing. I have 99 new friends that are doing the same thing through Holley Gerth’s God-sized Dream Team. This week’s assignment is to share one step we took towards our dream. I am thrilled to share I have an exciting opportunity that pretty much fell into my lap after sharing my dream last week. My friend and fellow God-sized dreamer, Stacey Thacker commented on my post and said she had an idea for me that she thinks would fit my dream. Well that she did! Along with many other amazing things Stacey has going on right now (like this amazing book you have to read which she co-authored) she happens to be the (in)courage group coordinator. (in)courage has developed community groups based on stage of life, interests and other connectors where you can build deep, meaningful friendship beyond comments on blog posts. For the first time they are starting a fitness community group and I was asked to co-lead the group! So yes, I can officially say I am an (in)courager! The session will begin February 12 and run through April 28. I will have a co-leader and we are working on exactly what this group will look like. But you can be assured that you will meet other women who, like you want to make fitness a priority. And you can be sure I will be SO excited to help you move one step closer in achieving your fitness goals. If you would like more information about joining this group or any of the (in)courage community groups go HERE.
There it is. I took the plunge to say aloud what I have been thinking for so long and once I did an opportunity gets plopped in my lap. Maybe this dreaming thing isn’t so bad after all! Did you take a step, even the tiniest one towards your God-sized dream? Tell me! I want to hear all about it!
