Fly High Into Your Dreams: Conversation with Founders of Queen Girls Turning Stories of Real Women Into Fairy Tales


Do you have a creative dream you’d love to grow this year? Come hangout with me and the founders of Queen Girls to be inspired to Dream BIG! Anything is possible if you work strategically and put an engine on your vision…

If you’re like me and have a deep passion for empowering our kids and youth then you’ll love this project created by these inspiring ladies. Queen Girls is a series of children’s books that turn stories of real women into fairy tales to encourage them to live out their dreams.

When I first saw this amazing project I was immediately drawn in like YES! This is what our girls need to see, that their dreams are possible and that they shouldn’t be afraid to dream BIG – and the same for you and I! Stay tuned for more from our conversation where we talk about how we can empower kids together and what kids teach us about living more fully and vibrantly.

The first book in the Queen Girls series shares the story of the first African American woman pilot Bessie Coleman and the illustrations are so vibrant, enchanting and engaging. You can help bring this project to life by donating to the IndieGogo campaign and pre-ordering your copy to help bring these books to children in need of inspiration and connect with them on social media and their website: www.queengirlspublications.com

Inspiration from Walt Disney On Reviving Hope and Reclaiming Your Imagination and STORY

The promo video for STORY in Chicago (for more on the event visit storygathering.com) caught my attention and was like God drawing me in to see what He’s been speaking to my heart over the past few years, about reigniting our creativity to dream like children again:

What if we can reclaim the places where imagination has been lost and find the whisper that beckons us to look past the ordinary…what would we discover?

This is your Invitation to Another World…

“That’s what we storytellers do. We restore order with imagination and instill hope again, and again, and again.” – Walt Disney
These words from STORY are a call for creatives to step into their calling:

“While all is chaos and grief and anger and confusion – we are called to instill hope again…We each need to be reminded of the power we have as storytellers.

“You’ve heard, “look for the helpers,” which is part of a quote from childhood icon Fred Rogers about where to find inspiration following a crisis. I say, look for the storytellers. You and I have a tremendous opportunity to re-write the narratives society plays out day after day.
Because you can tell a story well, you have influence. More than you know…” – via the STORY blog

You’re Made to Dream Uniquely Ever Since the Beginning…

We create & dream because our Father dreams – you are Love’s dream, part of His great story…When we create we are reflecting the Creator and who He uniquely, beautifully created us to be since the beginning…

Dare to be and dream differently – express who God created you to be through everything you do! He made you fearfully and wonderfully in Love💖, with ideas, quirks and a combination of talents no one else has! You weren’t made to be “normal,” for comparison or to fit in – it’s embracing your uniqueness and daring to break out of the box and break some rules that makes you stand out.

You are a gift💝 but you weren’t made to be boxed it🎁 – color outside the lines to pioneer a new path that no one has seen…People like Walt Disney🐭 and Oprah Winfrey🎬 inspire me (I might have been their wild child😜) because they paved new paths, defined their own success and innovated unique dreams that did not exist before and didn’t wait for anyone’s validation.

For the longest time I felt pressured to do what others expected me to or to fit a mold so others can like me but that’s no way to live! Dare to be you to the full and live your dreams differently the way God gives it to you, not how society says you have to – we don’t have to conform to that pattern but we’re made to bring a whole new way of living to Earth.

Sometimes your “weakness,” flaws and the things you don’t know can become your greatest strengths! Embrace your weird and be quirky, silly😼, funny, creative and most of all you because no one else can be beautifully YOU and live your dreams like only you can👈🏽, how He intended you to since the beginning…

Hannah’s Story

I grew up in the small town of Columbia City, Indiana. My childhood memories consists of catching frogs on warm summer nights at my grandparents lake house and, in the winter time, pretending to be a professional snow boarder down the hill in my backyard. I’ve loved growing up in a flyover state where Jesus is frequently the center of it all…
