Five Minute Friday: Imagine

Five Minute Friday with Lisa-Jo Baker and hundreds of others. We write for five minutes. All on the same prompt. No extreme editing. No worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation. Unscripted. Unedited. Real.

This week’s prompt: Imagine

Imagine all the people...

All the people. All the woman. All the moms.

My thoughts are consumed with one thing these last few weeks.


Dreams I have. Dreams Brad and I have. Dreams my bench girls and I have.

If only there were a way to hold your hand through every step of your journey. I want to do that. I want to hold your hand as you take this giant leap and follow God's calling for your family. I want to be your personal cheerleader.

Imagine if we can do this together. Without believing the lies. Without doubts. Having someone to call every day to lean on. We are the keystone to our family and He is our keystone. Together we can build this community to encourage each other and stop tearing ourselves down.

Soon enough my sweet friends. I will be holding some hands in real life and some virtually. These bench girls and I are going to make this happen because God keeps giving us more of this dream He has for us!

Andi and Brad have been married since 2002. They have five squishers who keep them on their toes. She is a second generation home educator. In her spare time Andi creates and sells handmade goodies in her shop, Andi Gould Designs.

    I'm so happy to sit on this bench with you girls. Someday soon, at one time, we'll all virtually scoot down and make room for others to sit with us. We'll share God's encouragement and pass notes that say "not alone".
    We SO need a couch in a field. Just sayin'
