My three biggest dreams are to get married, to become a youth leader, and music.
Getting married, well, that's every little girl's dream, isn't it? =)
Becoming a youth leader is really a big dream of mine... The past year we haven't had a female youth leader in my youth group (thankfully that is going to change) and it was a disaster. I really think that teenage girls need older women to mentor them and just to talk to (actually, I believe that about guys as well).
Titus 2: 1-5 says,
You must teach what is in accord with sound doctrine. Teach the older men to be temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled, and sound in faith, in love and endurance.
Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teachw hat is good. Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children,to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.
We girls are emotional. We need to talk or else we explode (it's a little known proven fact). When girls don't have someone older and more experienced to talk to, it's even worse. Everyone needs a friend. And everyone needs someone to look up to.
I want to be that person. I feel such a strong connection to teenage girls. I want to be able to help them and help them get closer to God.
So there you go.
Music is another dream. I don't know what I want to do with music. Not teach. I just want to get better at it until I'm really super good.
And there are my long term dreams. You sure are learning about me aren't you? It's kind of awkward. What are YOUR long term dreams?
Live long and prosper.
