Stay tuned for some sweet new things I’ve been dreaming up for Dreamfleur, with more features to motivate and support you in following your dreams…

I believe every great dream is conceived and birthed in love – that’s where it all begins…

Took the pic below yesterday after presenting & speaking with a group of teen girls about relationships and purpose – they’re always the *funniest* audience (other than kids!:) I’ll be doing a speaking series “We Dream of Love” on how to be single/date on purpose, sharing my journey of finding identity & true love, and the deeper purpose of marriage, based on the @WeDreamofLoveBook I’m launching. Next is a video interview of an inspiring couple who talk about love, marriage and purpose…more of the series to come, stay tuned and follow the We Dream of Love Movement right here at dreamfleur.com or on Twitter: http://twitter.com/wedreamoflove







If you haven’t seen the movie Selma yet, what are you waiting for?

It’s so important for us to have a voice in Hollywood by supporting films of substance and spirit. I’ve seen Selma twice *so far* and both times cried and was moved deeply! Be sure to go see it! It has deeper themes and meaning than merely being about what’s on the outward appearance, reminding us that we are spirit in a battle where good and Love always will prevail!

Below watch Oprah with the director Ava DuVernay, talk about why she decided to take on the project Selma which she says is, “For such a time as this”…


Quvenzhane Wallis as Annie Inspires the Kid In You

I saw the new “Annie” movie a few weeks back and was so inspired and was grinning from ear to ear afterwards (my older brother on the other hand was crying by the end:D, too funny). Quvenzhane Wallis was shining and her joy and positive outlook on life was contagious. I was reminded of my passion for positive, wholesome films that the whole family can watch and the lack of those there are in theaters. One of my dreams since I was a little girl has been to share stories that kids can enjoy and I’ve been working on a few that I’d like to introduce and possibly even move in the live action direction as partnerships are being built in that area. What’s your childhood dream and the opportunity standing right in front of you that you’ve been afraid to embrace? The world is waiting…

Here’s Quvenzhane Wallis singing the song “Opportunity” from the movie Annie:

Artist Who Inspires Spotlight & Music Pick: “Don’t Give Up” From Brenna Maples

I “met” Brenna Maples virtually through a program we’re both in, The Music Industry Blueprint (I highly recommend the program for anyone who has a dream of finder their artist as a singer!) I’ve featured her as an “Artist Who Inspires” and her song “Don’t Give Up” because of it’s inspiring message for anyone following their dreams. Here’s what Brenna told me about the song:

brennamaplesspotlight

This is a song for everyone who has gone through or is going through a hard time in life. No matter what, don’t give up.

“Don’t Give Up” is a song I wrote about my grandpa’s life events. He is still living and survived all of that! I also wrote it to encourage my sister to not give up through her battle of cancer. She has been cancer free for over a year, but she is still looking for a donor for a kidney transplant. I told her to not give up and to stay strong! This song is also for everyone that is going through a hard time. I want the song to encourage them to stay strong through whatever life brings and to not give up!

“You never know until you try, you’ve got to pick yourself up and don’t give up…” – Brenna Maples

Her fruit and nutrition-filled meals are always colorful and look amazing with photography that’s top notch. Not only am I inspired to eat better but Lila’s passion, dedication, creativity and consistency are great qualities for someone who is following her dreams – no wonder her following on Instagram keeps growing!

Olaf is definitely my favorite character from Frozen, and Charis Lincoln is one of my very favorites on Youtube so I loved seeing her Olaf-inspired fashion shoot, it’s too cute!

I love everything Disney and Charis always shares imaginative and creative make-up and fashion. Here are some more of her looks:

Here’s my debut starring role playing a teen girl, based on a true story (my diaries and embarrassing stories as a teen, find out never -shared before 🔐 secrets like who I was crushing on at age 15;).

The Tyler Perry-inspired “Diary of a Sad Shy Teen” (“unfortunately” Madea couldn’t be in this one, halleluyer;) is playing in schools across the country in kids who don’t have a voice. My dream is to reach teens like me and creatively give them a light of hope.

After over 20 years of severe social anxiety and stage fright I’m finally living out my dream of shining inspiration by merging my passion for acting and singing in imaginative presentations.

Here’s a flashback into my tumultuous teenhood, inspired by Josh Shipp’s Youth Speaker University – an awesome opportunity for those with a passion for empowering young people and giving them a voice.

Your Dreams Were Made to Flourish: Live Out Your Beautiful Purpose

The beautiful thing about purpose is that everyone was born with it – the question is will you choose to fully embrace and move in it?

You’ve caught glimpses of it ever since you were a child, when your hope and wonder was still fresh and you explored the world with joy and wide-eyed awe. You’ve always imagined making an impact in the unique way you were created to – so what are you waiting for? You’ve already been chosen…

Deep down you know you weren’t made for the ordinary, you may have been rejected or always felt like a mis-fit – but it’s because you are from more royal origins. You were made to live out a story greater than your wildest dreams, grander than your highest hopes, to love boldly, sowing seeds of healing and setting others free.

This beautiful purpose crafted and written for you, and those you are connected to, is more captivating than any fairy-tale, more riveting than an epic legend or film…So why do we constantly seek outward, aimless distraction, yearning for merit-less validation, entertaining meaningless excuses and powerless foes like fear that dull and pull us away from our real-life reverie?

Below listen to my inspirational pep talk for you entering the New Year, “It’s Your Time to Flourish and Shine”

This year is ours to be found and to seek, to create, dance and play on purpose with childlike belief, to cultivate, thrive and flourish, to shine and savor the love we were made for and finally live out that dream courageously. This 2015 we’re waiting in eager anticipation for you to come awake and realize the truth of who you were always meant to be…free. ‪#‎ariseandshine‬ ‪#‎beYoutothefull‬ ‪#‎liveboldlyonPurpose‬ ‪#‎youareBeautiful‬ ‪#‎alwaysbelieve‬ ‪#‎youremadeformore‬
