I do not consider myself an athlete. In fact, I really don’t like exercising at all. I am an active person, don’t get me wrong, but the thought of “working out” makes me want to take a nap. I also don’t watch sports on television. But, I love the Olympics. They are a totally different ballgame to me. It’s not all about which team beats who or how much money the players make. It’s about young people with big dreams pushing themselves to do their best, good sportsmanship, and the honor of representing your country to the world.
As we piled up on the couch to watch the games this last week, I couldn’t help but smile. Even just making it to the Olympics is a dream come true for most of them. My dream may not be as grand as becoming an Olympian, but it has been just as important to me. And I am so thankful and feel so blessed that God has let it come to pass this past fall.
Callum’s Compass is my first book baby. I have dreamed about being a published novelist since I was about seven or eight. I always kind of thought I would be “old” before it happened (my kids think I am old now), but it is so fun to have it happen in my 30s and know I can now have a chance at making this my lifelong career. Someone asked me at an event over the weekend if this was who I was now, just an author writing books. He smiled and waited for my answer. I said, “You know, I sure hope so.”
God is so good to me. My second book, Camp Hope, will be releasing this summer and hopefully book number three, Rarity Mountain, in early 2019. After much prayer, I already have ideas for books four through six. It’s just amazing to me. I really hope that you will find the courage to pursue your dreams too. They may seem scary at the outset, but I have no doubt that if you trust Him, He can bring you to them.

What is your dream career?  Are you taking steps to get there?  GIVEAWAY: Answer the questions above in the comments to enter Sara's giveaway. Don't forget to leave your email address with your comment!

 KAT WILLIAMS’S brother died in a gruesome accident in the mountains of East Tennessee. She blames herself.
RYAN JENKINS’S fiancée was murdered. He couldn’t protect her.
With the death of her brother, Kat believes she is unworthy of love from anyone—even God. When a good friend elicits a promise that she will stop living in the past and then leaves her clues to a real-life treasure hunt, Kat embarks on an adventure chock-full of danger. To find the treasure, Kat will have to survive wild animals—and even wilder men. Can she rely on Ryan, the handsome wildlife officer assigned to protect her . . . without falling in love?
Ryan swore off love when his fiancée was murdered, but feelings long-buried rise to the surface around Kat. He volunteers to help with her treasure hunt, vowing to keep her safe. Together they venture deep into caves and tunnels . . . and even deeper into the depths of their unplumbed hearts.

  1. I taught school and I enjoyed it very much. Now, I am living my dream by being able to visit my grands whenever I want. It is so nice for my time to be my own for the most part. mauback55 at gmail dot com

    1. That's awesome! My aunt was a kindergarten teacher for many, many years. Such an important job!

  2. I feel like I've already had my dream realized because I retired as a public librarian after working 22 1/2 years. I was a farmwife who was hired as a part-time worker and it turned into a full-time position. Books are still a very important part of my life!
    I enjoyed this post and I appreciate the chance to win your book.
    Debbie, I follow you.

    1. My first job when I was fourteen was a part-time after school help at a library. I LOVE that book smell. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Congratulations on your first book 'baby'! I don't have a dream career anymore, as I now consider myself However, I do have a dream to get a knitting machine so I can produce things at a faster rate and thus be able to donate to charities.
    My daughter aspires to be a writer and participated in the November novel in a month challenge. She is now editing that story.
