How do you know it’s the right time to pursue your dreams?
You may be thinking, “oh, I’ll wait until my kids are in school” to pursue my dreams or “next year, when it’s not so wild, I’ll start that thing I’m so passionate about”.
Friend, we know those are just excuses. Easy outs to explain to yourself why you aren’t pursuing your dreams right now.
AND also, side note, you and I know that “next year” may be even wilder than this year so don’t play that card.
Okay, hold on. Let’s back up a minute.
First, how do you even know what your dream IS?
Did you know all along? Did God drop it in your heart in a moment – BAM!?
Or do you still wonder and struggle to figure out what your dream is? By the way, you’re not alone if this is you.
No matter where you land in the “dreamer spectrum” (just made that up), you will find all kinds of encouragement and wisdom from this conversation with my guest Merritt Onsa.
Merritt is the host of the Devoted Dreamers podcast.
She’s a trail guide for the passionate and creative Christian woman who wants to get over her fear of failure, comparison, and imposter syndrome so she can get moving on her God-shaped dream without wasting more time second-guessing herself, procrastinating, or trying to be perfect.
Sound like you?!
Merritt believes it would be a tragedy your God-shaped dreams stayed hidden. So she helps you to unpack and sift through what God has uniquely gifted you. And speaks truth and love over you as you navigate the journey forward.
If you want to hear more from me and Merritt, you’re in luck!

In that episode we talk about:

- Taking messy action is an act of obedience
- How to “just trust God” while taking uncomfortable steps forward
- An important lesson I’ve learned just by using my skills and gifts.
