Launching My Dream

Welcome to Unleashing the Champion Within

We are continuing the series on God’s Dream for Your Life. This is my newest book and it is available on my website:

Today I am sharing about when your dream launches!

I am writing this blog on a flight home from Phoenix. I am trying to capture all the highlights of my book launch week while they are still fresh in my mind. 

It all started two years ago with a passion and a nudge from God to write the story of His dreams for us. As I wrote, the burning for others to know the wonder of God and all He has planned for them became my driving motivation. After hours of writing, editing and rewrites, the book was ready to be published and released. 

I decided I wanted my friends and family to be the first to see the book, so I planned a book launch party. You know, when you have worked so hard to finish a project you want everyone to join in the celebration. We laughed, had yummy treats, I read one of my favorite parts and signed books.

I was overwhelmed by their encouragement and love cheering me on!  

(P.S. There are pictures on my Facebook and Instagram for you to enjoy.)

Designed to Dream

We will be continuing our series from my new book, God’s Dream for Your Life. My book is available on my website: 

Today I am sharing how we are designed to dream. 

“What is life but God’s daring invitation to embark
on a remarkable journey?”1
— Craig D. Lounsbrough

God is a dream giver and He is a dream fulfiller. His dreams designed for you are good and beneficial for you, for your family and your community. 

God is inviting you to join with Him in dreaming big, extravagant dreams. Together, with God,  you will discover the dreams and plans He wants to accomplish with you. 

What are some of the dreams on God’s heart? 

He dreams of you walking in your identity as a son or daughter

God’s Dream for Your Life

Welcome to Unleashing the Champion Within.

I have some exciting news to share! 

On Saturday, July 21, 2018, my new book, God’s Dream for Your Life is officially being released. And over the next few weeks, I will be sharing gems from the book. 

I have found over the many years, I have sold God short! And what I mean is I have limited God to what I can understand, what I can believe for and what I can see with my own eyes.

Through my book, I want you to discover how God is invested in your life. He wants you to know Him — personally. He wants you to live in health, to discover your passion and to go for it. 

As we journey together, you will discover — 

God makes the impossible possible!
God dreams about YOU partnering with Him!
He wants YOU to learn to bring the impossible into reality!

This is God’s dream for You — to join Him in an exciting, sometimes risky, adventurous journey! 

I have also included many stories of people, just like you who began dreaming with God and saw their dreams come alive. Better jobs, families reconciled, healing, and so much more.

This week I am sharing my Dreaming episode, because I have very exciting news!

On July 21, 2018, my new book God’s Dream for Your Life will be released. So over the next few weeks, I will be sharing a sneak peak from the book.

Let’s talk about dreaming.

Do you know dreaming is important to your success?

I am not talking about the dreams you have at night
I am talking about the dreams you have for your life!

Dreams are seeds of possibility planted in your soul, calling you to pursue a unique path to the realization of your purpose.  John Maxwell

Dreams are seeds for the future and when you dream — it prepares you for amazing opportunities in your future. Are you living the life you dream about?

Dreaming is part of the process to Unleash the Champion within you!

Entrepreneurs Arise

“Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed
by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, 
so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, 
catch the trade winds in your sails. 
Explore, Dream, Discover.” 
Mark Twain – Author. 

The time is here — turn your dream into a business!

Let me tell you about my friend Aylssa and her dream. She is an artist. She began looking for a way to express her creativity, while providing her independence and financial security. She discovered a canvas which surprised her — fingernails! Her designs are individually crafted for the person for day-to-day wear, as well as, special occasion. Aylssa’s business is three years old and is so successful, that you have to know someone to get an appointment!

Do you have a dream and skill like Alyssa? Would you like to turn your dream and your skill into an income producer? There are many doors of opportunity available to begin your business. We will look at a couple of tools in preparing to turn your dream into a moneymaking business.

This morning we are going to talk about imagination.  I have talked about this before.  But, the Lord has been talking to me about it again over the last 90 days. Usually I ponder on stuff for a while, and think about it. But, last week God said, “I want you to start releasing this,” and I said okay. It is funny, because we know when we get something and we don’t have the fullness of that revelation yet.

As we begin to share it more fullness comes because somebody else will get a piece of it, and as we release it there is really like a corporate anointing that joins in it to bring it more forward. I think it is going to challenge us a little bit. Because I know it challenges me, and it will also stretch us a little bit. You know that God likes to stretch us and if we allow it we will be activated in a different way. And I want to be activated in the fullness that God has for me and that is what I want for us.

I want to pray for our minds to be centered on what God wants us to know. Lord we thank you for Your Word. Your Word is active and alive and as we press into Your Word we really want to cooperate with You Lord. We reason together, as Your Word states in Isaiah 1:18 – “Come and let us reason together.” We want to press into this Word and You will help us to unfold it in our own lives. In Jesus name, Amen. I know I preached on imagination a couple of years ago in April 2015. This message is on the archives on our website,, so you can go back and look at it.

People of Influence

Welcome to Unleashing the Champion within. Today, I am sharing a message called People of Influence, which I gave at a Women on the Frontline Conference. 

I felt like the topic was so important, I had it transcribed for both my Podcast and Blog. I know this word will help you realize how much influence you really have! 

I’m very, very excited. I cannot wait to share this with you. And I wanted to mention, you know Patricia talked about our names last night and how important the meaning of our names are to us. 

When I was married, I dropped my last name and I just kept my middle name, because my last name had a lot of pain attached to it. So I just got rid of it and I just thought I’m going to go Cynthia Diane Stewart.

About 20+ years ago, God said you need to take your last name back, because you’re missing the anointing that it carries.
