"You are the only one who can give a voice to your dream!" 

Jolene Riley


 God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams!

He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, His Spirit deeply and gently within us. 

Ephesians 3:20 (MSG)







There are 3 steps in voicing your dream. 

1.  Visualize your dream.  Make a dream board, frame it, and hang it where you can look at it daily.  My dream board sits on the credenza in my music room/office and I see it dozens of times per day.  Words on my dream board that jump out at me are joy, share, inspire, love, women who make a difference, family comes first, and hope.  Create a folder on your notebook or ipad with photos of your dreams... all shapes and sizes of dreams, all-over-the-world kinds of dreams!  God has created a beautiful world and He wants us to enjoy His creation!     

2.  Voice your dream.  Whatever it is, write it down and speak the vision into your life… literally out loud with your voice!  Believe it in your heart.  Mine goes something like this: 

I am able to do so much more than what I've done so far and so much more than what I am dreaming about right now.  God has plans in mind for me that have not even entered my mind or heart.  He is able to do abundantly beyond what I ask or think, or what I write, as is written in His Word.  Beginning today, I give myself permission to dream those God-sized dreams.   My dreams are to have a beautiful home with a view of the ocean for my future grandchildren, to have meaningful and deep relationships with family and friends, to help others grow in their walk and faith in God, and to inspire and encourage others through my music. 

3.  Venture out with action!   Do something every day, even if it seems simple and insignificant, toward your dreams.  Read a few pages of a book about someone doing what you want to do.  Watch a documentary about that person.  Have coffee with someone in that profession or doing what you’d like to do and just talk to them for awhile.   Little steps add up to big steps toward your goals and ambitions.  Never underestimate the power of little becoming big!  Have mustard seed faith and act on it!



You are the composer, the director, and the singer of your dreams! 

Voice your God-given dream melody, visualize it,
venture out with action, make it an adventure
and surrender it all over to Him.

Most important in achieving  your dreams....

believe in what God has placed in your heart and never give up 


"You are the melody of your dreams."

And I will give you treasures hidden in the darkness—secret riches.

I will do this so you may know that I am the Lord, the God of Israel, the one who calls you by name.

Isaiah 45:3 (NLT)
