A Letter to a God-Sized Dreamer in my Life

Father and Baby Connection

Dear Derek,

I know you don’t often think of yourself as a God-sized dreamer. I know you struggle with fear of inadequacy.

But remember the definition of a God-sized dream is: desiring more of what God has for you.

Derek, God has so much for you. A job. Three beautiful children. Not to mention a ridiculously quirky wife.

And he’s gifted you with a unique skill set. Hands that like fine work. A mind that “speaks geek”. A heart that loves to pray. And he’s made you a protective landing place for the 4 under your care.

Here’s what I want you to hear most: I will follow you in your dreams and I am blessed to call you mine.

So, sweet husband of mine, solider forward in the full Armor of God. I’ll be right behind you both shielded by your strength and encouraging you to keep at it (because He’s worth it).

Love you more than bacon loves ice cream,


(I couldn’t think of a better person to write to when Holley’s prompt was to write a letter to another dreamer in my life.)
