Imagination=Dreams=Creativity

cloudsThe imagination is a terrible thing to waste!! When you tap into the colors of your imagination, you'll find so many wonderful dreams and endeavors. I have come to understand that my imagination is precious. At one point, I believe I lost a part of my imagination. As a child, I was forced to see and experience things that no child should have to experience. Innocence was taken away from me. Unfortunately, this happens far too often with children. They're stripped of their child-like innocence. Reality sets in and they forget how to dream. Thank God, He created Loopiethotamus for me in 2006. Who ever thought a Chihuahua and a Hippopotamus would ever cross paths??? Then in 2009, God created my son Elijah. Elijah's imagination intertwines with mine. With these two wonderful entities, I am able to feed my imagination each day.

I love thinking outside of the box and coming up with ideas for my books. I love to see the smiles on children's faces when they hear a Loopiethotamus story. They laugh at some of the "out of this world" stuff I've come up with and it just makes my heart swell up with love. The questions they ask are something else too! Creativity is an awesome thing! It allows you to explore the innermost parts of your being!!

We need to teach our children that it's okay to dream. It's okay to imagine beyond the stars! And it's okay to create something from nothing!!! When our stamp is on something that no one else has thought about, it shows uniqueness. We are all fearfully and wonderfully made of God. He has given to each of us a level of creativity and imagination.

Imagination=Dreams=Creativity!! Dare to Be Hipp-O!!!

Believe in Yourself or At Least Start with Just Believing

Dare to Dream 1Loopiethotamus' character allows you to believe even when others put you down and try to convince you otherwise. It takes courage and strength to keep on moving when others try to make it impossible. With children, it's so important to instill confidence in them. It's so important to encourage them to be the best they can be. Sometimes it can be very difficult to believe in yourself. If you have been told time and time again that you’re nothing, you begin to believe that you’re nothing. But for God.

But for God, that He allows people to come into your life that truly only see the goodness in you. These people help you to see the greatness in yourself too. It may take a push, a knock, and even years, but when God has something for you, He has it, and His promises never are broken. God has a season and right time for everything. He has a plan and a purpose for our lives. God loves the children; they are His blessings. Never allow someone to make you feel less than what God says you are, His child. You were created by Him for greatness! Reach for the stars and always remember that the sky is the limit! Take heart and know- Matthew 19:26- "With God, all things are possible."
