Any opportunity that I get to share a moment with friend, and influencer, Sherry Schie, I truly can expect to get an upgrade in my spirit. She has an amazing story, an open heart, and a drive to encourage others to dream big as she has done and continues to do in her own life.
She was lead to create an evening of dreaming, brainstorming, and encouragement. She opened her beautiful restaurant, Shy Cellars (a dream realized), and spoke from her heart about giving yourself permission to dream and steps on how to move forward.
She worked joyfully to set the environment for us to let go, laugh, and dream big as only Sherry can do. She spoke with authority because she has been there, she's walked this journey, and she walks it again and again because God is always giving us seeds of His big ideas as He desires for us to co-labor for His purposes on this side of heaven.
Shy Cellars was all set with a space for each guest, complete with our own art journal and all the creative supplies we needed to give us inspiration as we move forward to create the beginnings of vision boards.
I'm so excited for the next one!!! Yes, there is another one being planned for February 3rd with an amazing speaker that you won't want to miss!! Go to Shy Cellars on FB and Instagram and the www.shycellars.com and get on the mailing list so you don't miss the announcement for registration.
I was so honored to be able to have her invitation to share my heart as she gave me the opportunity to speak on battling opposition as you dream. (I'll be posting about that in the coming days)
What a privilege and the moment was not lost on me that I got to stand in the space with a group doing the same thing I'm doing. Knowing there is more...knowing we have purpose...knowing that God's vision and plans are way bigger than what we can see..
and knowing it's important because the impact of our walking in our calling is greater than we can see. It's eternal.
The first thing we encounter when we have a desire to move into new territory and walk in that Dream/Vision/Calling is opposition. It's just something we can expect, but don't be discouraged....we have effective weapons for battle.
I'll be discussing my thoughts on battling opposition and new territory in an upcoming post. I'm excited to share with you what the Father is teaching me about this subject that often kills a dream at the moment of inspiration.
Blessings to you
