Dream Big Pray Big

My husband and I have had the same tug-o-war conversation ever since we started dating our freshmen year in college. 

He would ask, "Where do you want to eat?"

I would reply, "I don't care, you pick".

He would then come back and say, "Just pick". 

This conversation would go back and forth until we would get frustrated with each other because we wanted the other one to just make a decision. 

So I have learned to be precise and concise with my request for a meal instead of just saying "I'm hungry". I tell my husband exactly what I want to eat now and it happens. 

Why would I not tell my husband, actually boyfriend when these eating conversations first began, where I really want to eat? First, I didn't want to ask too big because it might cost too much. Or what if that was not where he really wanted to eat. I wanted to eat where he wanted to go and then I would just find something when I got there. 

But what my husband really wanted was to know exactly what I was wanting to eat or "dreaming of".

It's the same with God. . . what am I hungry for. . . what do I desire. . . what am I dreaming of. . . 

For the longest I would dream too big because I didn't want to seem selfish in my desires. Who am I to dream dreams that big? Why am I worthy of having a life of abundance? 

But what I have learned is that God, just like my husband, wants me to have whatever I desire. My husband knows what I like to eat, but he continues to ask just to make sure that is what I still desire. 

God can not take me to my "restaurant of desires" if I do not specifically ask Him for the directions and the menu. He wants to take me there, but He is waiting to see where I want to go. God knows my heart and desires, but He also wants me to have a relationship with Him. He tells us in scripture to ASK! 

So I ask and then pray, but then I assume or get sidetracked with life, just like I do with my husband, and forget to ask or I let doubt enter that I am worthy of that "expensive meal" of dreams. 

I'm dreaming big, but sometimes I let doubt get into my head and that mean ugly devil tries to convince me that my dream is impossible for me to accomplish. . . who am I to dream dreams that big??? I'm not equipped or strong enough to walk the journey that is ahead of me to make that dream come true. . . ugly thoughts whisper in my head. 

These are times that I have to step back from all the overwhelming feelings and remind myself that I am a child of God. . . I am a Princess. . . I am a daughter of the One True King!!! I am beautifully and wonderfully made perfect.

How dare I let the devil in my head when God has brought me through so much! I get mad at myself when I forget just how big my God really is and that He can accomplish what I can not. In my weakest moments I have learned full well of His strength. 

“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; 
your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” -Psalm 139:14

I believe God wants us to DREAM BIG! 

Do you dare dream big dreams? 

Faith is believing that God has big plans for you. . . He dreams big dreams for you, bigger than we can dream for ourselves, and He has the power to make those dreams come true!

God gave us the ability to be creative and an imagination to dream the impossible. 

With faith, dreams are not impossible! 

If you want big dreams to come true, you first have to pray big. Pray for those impossible dreams. . . dreams that only God can fulfill. When you dare ask for that dream, you are showing God that you have faith that He can do it. 

Believe that nothing is too big for God!

“Now glory be to God, by his mighty power at work within us is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of — infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes.” Ephesians 3:20 

Too many times we sit back and just dream of the life we want, but we do not pray about and let God turn the impossible into the possible. 

I find myself praying, but then I get caught up in the process of trying to accomplish the dream that I forget to hand it completely over to God. I have to keep my eyes and mind on God's ability and not my ability separate from His. I can not accomplish my dream without God; therefore, I must continuously pray big while I am taking action towards the dream. 

Action without prayer is an idle dream. . . a dream that lacks faith. . . a dream that lacks direction from our Creator that gave us the ability to dream. 

It is hard for us to fulfill a dream alone, but with God nothing is too hard. 

Jeremiah 32:27, “I am the LORD, the God of all the peoples of the world. Is anything too hard for me?” 

God tells us to call upon Him and to let Him go to the ends of the earth for us. It says in Psalm 2:8 that God wants to give us an inheritance and the ends of the earth our possession. . . Do you truly believe this? If so, ASK FOR IT!

I am asking and then I am going to ask some more. God wants me to ask!!! He wants you to ask! 

“Ask me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession.” Psalm 2:8

See, when I changed the dialogue with my husband when it came time to choose a restaurant, our conversations and dinner were a lot more peaceful. It allowed our relationship to grow. I learned to trust that my husband would tell me that the restaurant was too expensive or not what he wanted at that time. 

This is true for my relationship with God. I have learned to ask for my heart's desires and dreams and trust that He will lead me where He ultimately wants me for my own good.

White Chocolate Raspberry Fat Bomb

These fat bombs remind of a sweet tart with a little crunch. These are great to have on hand for a quick snack. The fat bombs help suppress my appetite and give me energy without the calories and carbs. . . this makes me happy!  And they are quick and easy!!! 


  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 2 ounces cacao butter
  • 1/2 cup freeze-dried raspberries
  • 1/4 cup powdered erythritol sweetener (like Swerve)
  • 1/2 pack of Raspberry Lemonade Ketones 

First, melt the cacao butter and coconut oil together. Less coconut oil and more cacao butter makes the fat bombs easier to transport without melting. 

Then, pulverize the freeze-dried berries. You can use a food processor or a blender. 

Add the pulverized berries, ketones  and sweetener to the pot and stir it around until the sweetener dissolves.

Pour into an ice tray or muffin pan lined with cupcake papers. 

After an hour or so in the fridge they’ll look like this. The raspberry powder will sink to the bottom creating a layered effect.

Putting on my Oxygen Mask

Moving forward with my dreams and faith . . .

Tomorrow is the day that my mom passed away 4 years ago, and the day that I dug deep to find the mark I would leave on the world or really just in my small space with my boys . . . 

Listening to people tell stories and speak about how my mom impacted them made me think about the way I was living my life. That's when I went back to school to get my teaching certificate updated and certified to teach English dual enrollment (on top of all the years that I went school to get my Marketing degree, masters in education, and reading specialist certification). I think I have spent my whole life learning how to teach and present lessons to others that I forgot to teach myself how to "fuel" my journey so I would have the strength for others. 

I learned four years later after my mom passing away and returning to the classroom chasing my mission field of teaching, where I felt was the best place for me to impact lives the same way my mom did, that teaching is an amazing mission field and one you MUST be strong for and have the "mind, body, and spirit oxygen mask" setting set on the highest level at all times in order to successfully impact lives!!! 

My breast cancer journey taught me that I had to put on my "oxygen mask" FIRST before I could help anyone else put on theirs. 

As you know from my transparent Facebook posts, I have been choosing joy to LIVE ABUNDANTLY. . . through those transparent and real posts, I have had people privately reach out to me for help with putting on their own "oxygen mask". I have grown from the darkness and struggles that come through being in the pit of grief and illness and financial peace. I don't ask "why me" anymore. I now ask "why not me". 

The last day of my radiation treatment I walked out the door of the cancer center and sat in my car with the ugly cry because I was afraid and scared that I would fail at the next journey because I didn't know if I was prepared and there wasn't a textbook to teach me how to do my next job. I didn't want to drive away as the same person I was before the day I walked into the cancer center for the first time. Entering that cancer center for 35 days straight, with exception of Saturday and Sunday, transformed me, and I NEVER want to be the same as I was before frequenting that place. 

I have been searching for the path for how I am to make an impact and for my journeys not to be meaningless. . . I decided it started with my own family. Team Robinson is different and changed for my 35 day of choosing joy!!! I have seen the transformation we have made as a family, and I am excited for the Team Robinson generations to come. 

Daniel and I are raising the leaders of three more Team Robinsons. The impact has to start with my boys, and I figured out I had to be full of "oxygen" in the areas of MIND, BODY, and SPiRIT. . . this will be ongoing for myself. The beginning of this new journey included letting go of a passion that excites me but wears me down mentally and physically at the same time. A passion that allowed me to give all I had to others with none left for my family. My family (and myself) got the left over "oxygen". My family and myself deserve the first "oxygen mask" that I have available in order to impact the future generations. 

Instead of complaining about the darkness that continues to overshadow our communities, it's time to do something instead of just complain and blame others. . . I'm not trying to impact huge entities and laws, but I want to begin with my family and trickle out into other families. One family at a time will change a community, one community at a time will change a city, one city at a time will change . . . Ok I know you get my point I'll stop right there. 

I want to come back down this mountain I have been climbing for years and help others put on their "oxygen mask" to take the climb back up with me. So I let go of a career I have been preparing for my whole life, a passion for impacting students to be the best version of their self and teaching them how to open the door to freedom to be who they want to be through education and perseverance. 

I am continuing to put on my own "oxygen mask" and moving forward with my entrepreneurial dream that life has been preparing me for. Yesterday I moved the last box out of my classroom and opened the door to LIVE ABUNDANTLY. 

Live Abundantly is an umbrella of three areas: mind, body, and spirit. I have several projects I am working on to hopefully help and inspire others. . . 

The first project is the 10 Day Ketone Challenge through my Keto Fuel Zone leg of Live Abundantly . . . 

I have a passion for educating and helping others be the best version of their self. You have to have the right mindset, a whole lot of Jesus, and a strong healthy body to go "do something". Instead of complaining and blaming, let's go "do something" . . . Let's transform people's minds, bodies, and spirit so we can live in a BETTER community. Let's make our lives meaningful by being the light in the world as God's hands and feet!!! 

But we MUST first put on our "oxygen mask" and I can help you do that!!!
