Dream Big. Pray Harder.

Most of you don’t know but this past year has been a whirlwind of a year for our family. We’ve endured somethings that I never thought we’d have too. But no matter what came our way it wasn’t too big for God. He knew what we needed and when we needed it the most.

“Dream Big. Pray Harder” is my life motto. Since I read the Circle Maker by Mark Batterson, my prayer life has never been the same. “Bold prayers honor God, and God honors bold prayers. God isn’t offended by your biggest dreams or boldest prayers. He is offended by anything less. If your prayers aren’t impossible to you, they are insulting to God. Why? because they don’t require divine intervention.” is one of my favorite quotes from the book. God WANTS us to Dream Big but most importantly he wants us to Pray even Harder.

My Mom is one of the strongest people I know. She’s been through the ringer this year, but she never once stopped Dreaming Big or Praying Hard. When we were younger, Mom quit school and put her career on hold to be a full time mother. She was going to school to be a nurse. I still think that’s hilarious. My Mom, a nurse? HAHAHA  Never in a million years, But it all make sense now… the Lord was preparing her. Preparing her to be help others. Geenks (AKA as Mom) always dreamed of being a teacher. Her heart for helping little ones learn is like nothing I’ve ever seen. She’s traveled the World pouring into the lives of children everywhere.  View More: http://nickdrollette.pass.us/chooperchristmas In May of 2016 I am thrilled to announce that she will be graduating with her degree in Elementary eduction from Auburn University Montgomery. As a part of her work study she will be traveling to Costa Rica this summer to help develop an elementary science curriculum related to rain forest ecology. Fancy Huh? Most of you are well aware that traveling isn’t cheap and times can sometimes be tough. I wish I could fund her entire trip, but I can’t. I wanted to surprise her so I came up will a brilliant idea… I know, I’m the worlds BEST son. 2015-12-08_0004 My brilliant idea… the “Dream Big.
