Dream Small By: Josh Wilson
[Verse 1]
It's a momma singing songs about the Lord
It's a daddy spending family time that the world said he cannot afford
These simple moments change the world
It's a pastor at a tiny little Church
Forty years of loving for the broken and the hurt
These simple moments change the world

[Chorus 1]
Dream small
Don't buy the lie you've gotta do it all
Just let Jesus use you where you are
One day at a time
Live well
Loving God and others as yourself
Find little ways where only you can help
With His great love
A tiny rock can make a giant fall

Or dancing on a Friday with your friend with special needs
These simple moments change the world
Of course there's nothing wrong with bigger dreams
Just don't miss the minutes on your way, your bigger things
'Cause these simple moments change the world


[Chorus 1]
But dream small
Don't buy the lie you've gotta do i…

Even when I was younger, I would go for a walk down the street when upset.Sometimes I would push my luck and take a step farther each time.I know my mom hated it, but I do not remember her saying anything about me taking off and walking until I was older.
I got out of the car slamming the door and proceeded to stomp down the sidewalk. I tried to process why I was agitated and if there was really a reason for it. Maybe I was overreacting, which would not be the first time and also might mean that I could be wrong.
As I walked I decide to pray.Even though I did not…

I have always been interested in Yugoslavia, reading books on the country and admired the breathtaking pictures.I even wrote a report on it when I was in the 6th grade. I am not sure that my teacher was expecting me to write about it, but I did, and got an “A.”
In elementary school, I had made a list of all the places that I wanted to visit. Yugoslavia was at the top, followed by London, Scotland, Ireland, Italy, France, California, Spain and the list continues to grow. Even today, I would love to visit every place on my list.
I have been a fan of Christina Oxenberg since 1997. She is a wonderful writer and she can make me laugh. So when I heard about a new book that is coming out, I hinted heavily to my husband. Learning that she was going to write a book on her ancestors, I was so excited. Even though I know a book can take time to write, but I still could not wait to read it.
Finally, the book came out in 2015. Woo hoo! But...there was a …
