Five Minute Fridays

Today is my first time joining Five minute Friday. Kate Motaung (encourages writers to write for five minutes on a specific topic. Today the word is Dream, so hear goes.....

I dream of a day when we can be more authentic with each other especially in the Christian community.

I dream of a day when moms can honestly say they are overwhelmed by the pressures that come with being a wife and mother.

I dream of the day when we can honestly compliment another woman without being jealous.

I dream of a day when we can all "BE REAL."


  1. Hi, Delora! I'm so glad you joined our little "Five Minute Friday" crew. We are better for having you. :)

    Your words about women giving and receiving compliments without jealousy are so good. We are far too competitive with each other. We need to remember that Jesus made us all different - and He likes it that way!

  2. Welcome Delora,

    I'm your neighbour at the FMF linkup. Welcome :) I appreciate your first point--a call for authenticity in the Christian community. This is hard, but I'm working on this for myself.

    Blessings to you as you continue dreaming and keeping things real.

  3. So, glad I was able to read your first FMF post. I loved it. There is definitely a need for us to be real. I think we like to put on a show because we fear what others may think of us. We want to look like we've got it all together when really we don't. And you know....we need to learn that not having it all together is ok.

  4. First I want to say, Welcome! It is so true, there is such a need for "real". Your post made me wonder if perhaps it doesn't start with each one of us. Maybe as we each are brave & live with authenticity, we can encourage others to do so. Life is hard, no matter what stage we are in, and we so need one another. Glad you joined in! Blessings!

  5. WELCOME to FMF! Amen to all of these dreams! We are in so much need of authenticity... I think when we risk being real and vulnerable, we see how much we are not alone! Loved this! So glad you joined in!

  6. Hi, I wanted to extend a warm welcome too. I love your dream for authenticity as Christian women. I am guilty as charged. I play the comparison game and wonder why I am not further along in my writing dreams. I hope we as Christian bloggers and writers will be encouraging to one another and not competitive. Thanks for sharing your dreams with us.

  7. Welcome to our Five Minute Friday community. It is a great way to get to know other bloggers and to share from our heart. You will find a welcoming group who loves authenticity. I know that others feel the same way you do about motherhood.
