Once again God has been sending me the same message over and over. He knows sometimes I am too dense (or preoccupied) to hear him the first time. Often I start with “Hmmm, that’s interesting,” but by the time I’ve heard the message the third or fourth time from diverse channels, I’m listening and saying, “God might want me to actually act on this.”
Chazown, the subject of the last blog post, was about living out the vision God has for you. So I knew I was receiving a message from God when I received a free copy of The Me Project by Kathi Lipp after agreeing to participate in a blog tour. Kathi’s subtitle—21 Days to Living the Life You’ve Always Wanted—sums up the book nicely. Kathi gives 21 projects that will help you move forward in fulfilling one of God’s dreams for you. It makes a great followup to Chazown, which helped you identify the dreams and some first steps.
Kathi has a fun, encouraging writing style that makes you feel like you actually can do this. You can make progress on the dreams God has given you. I was most challenged by her call to find accountability partners, mentors, and even a “board of directors.” I know this is an area lacking in my life, but I don’t really know how to find those people for my ministry. So I am praying for God to bring them to me.
Kathi has provided an article with three first steps for you to get started on your dreams. You can enjoy it here:

Hey Carol – So glad my book could be one of the little nudges that God uses! Blessings on your blog friend!
Carol, it's so interesting that you have been writing blog posts on this topic – my husband has really been challenging me to think about what my dreams are because he wants to help and encourage me to walk them out. Although some days my dream is simply to get a full night's sleep 😉 – I know that God has put a longing in my heart to minister to women through speaking and writing . . . to share with others the journey that I'm on. One small step I can take towards seeing the dream become a reality is to do more journaling and/or blogging, just beginning to put down on paper the things stirring on my heart.
Lisa, I love when God uses posts like this. Seriously consider this book. And I will be looking for your blog posts! Post your blog address so others can follow you.
