Living the Dream

"Professional Photo Shoot Dream Realized: Woman moved to Redding two years ago and started following the blog of a leading photographer. Her dream was to have a photo shoot with the photographer but the cost was way outside her ability. Two years later she received a random PERSONAL phone call FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHER saying “We were looking back on who has commented the most on our blog and you have, by far, been the most encouraging. We would like to thank you by giving you a free photo-shoot.” Deborah K, Redding, CA"

Living the Dream

"Forgiveness Releases CASH: Business owner at Heaven in Business workshop heard Blake Schellenberg talk about Heaven getting released through forgiveness.

"I felt the need to write down names of people and things in our lives to pray about. One was of a man that owed one of our businesses $30,000 and in 5 minutes my husband's phone rang while we were on break at the meeting…He said he didn't want to answer it because it was the man that owed us and he was tired of listening to his excuses for not paying us. I told my husband he had to answer because I just prayed for him...he answered it and the man said that his investors were granting him the $30,000 to pay us, praise God! Did I mention that we were questioning even coming to the meeting because we only had $800 in our company bank account? Well we are more than glad that we came!

"The testimony only grew as we came home. When we went to the office there were $75,000 in checks waiting for us on top of the promissory $30,000! I can't express to everyone how good God is when we put everything in his hands. My husband left a family multi-million dollar business 3 years ago because God laid it on his heart that there was another plan for us... God has given us 3 new businesses in the last 3 hears since leaving the family business.

See, we were relying on and putting our faith in the money that the family business had provided for us instead of relying on the One True God. And since we chose His path, He has been more than good to us. I want you all to know that God restored the temple of Solomon, and when he restores it is always restored to a place greater than the first! He is for you and not against you. All my hope is in Him!" via Shannon Hall Lynn"

Living the Dream

"Local youth leader had a dream to own a jet boat for his family to ski and wake board. Six months ago they found a boat they wanted. They decided they would take a look with the mind to attempt to purchase it for around $10,000. When they went to look over the boat and confirm the purchase, the owner (whom they did not know prior to this visit) stood in the boat with youth leader and said “my wife and I have decided that we want to give you this boat.” The youth leader was shocked and didn’t know what to do. The funniest response was when he was driving home –he glanced in his rearview mirror and was startled to see the boat now attached and following him!"

Living the Dream

"Pharmacist has woman walk in and hears God say pray for her husband. (He had earlier heard the husband was unwell but didn’t know details). Pharmacist was wrestling with whether he can do that legally etc etc so says I will ask husband’s name and go from there. Asks name of husband and she bursts into tears! Other pharmacists come over so all start to pray for him. He had just gone into ER with meningitis on critical life support.

Next day he is fully discharged!

Next, the Pharmacist’s boss comes to him saying “You have my permission to pray for anyone who wants it.” Word got around the hospital that you go to the pharmacy if you want prayer! Dr Tim, Redding, CA"
