*UPDATED* Congratulations to Cheryl! (Her dream is to "Relax" -she must be a Mom!) I corrected the bad link to Mela's site, please make sure you visit, enjoy her music and follow your dream!
What is your dream?
I think everyone has one. Some are pursued with vigor and confidence, some hidden deep within, while others are buried under the ashes of regret and disappointment.
But everyone has one. A dream.
Lean in close and I'll whisper mine in your ear: I want to author a book. I've faced a lot, A LOT of rejections, but it's still there. My dream.
Well. I want to introduce you to someone who made their dream come true: Mela Kamin.
I'll let her tell you in her own words:
"This is my debut CD. I co-wrote all the songs, recorded in Nashville with some
amazing musicians, after just a year of making the decision to step out in faith
and use my gifts in this way. I didn't grow up going to church or singing in choirs.
I never sang a song in front of an audience (besides at my grandparents' funerals)
until last year. All this happened because I overcame fear, watched God open
BIG doors and I walked boldly through, trusting Him to lead the way.
I now travel and share my stories and songs about how big God's plans are for us.
My husband, Greg & I started 4:10 Ministries based on 1 Peter 4:10: "Each one
should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering
God's grace in its various forms." We work to encourage people to discover, accept,
use and celebrate their unique gifts."
Mela sent me a copy of her CD to listen to and a couple of her cute t-shirts.
And do you know how I felt after I listened to it? Inspired.
I'm not about to give up on my dream. Neither should you.
Would you like to win a copy of Mela's new CD and a cute shirt for you and your child ($55 value)? Visit her site, come back here and whisper your dream if you dare (or just leave a comment) and that will be your entry!
This giveaway ends on Saturday.
