The Devoted Dreamers Podcast

Whether you have a dream in your heart or aren’t sure what God might be calling you to, The Devoted Dreamers Podcast will encourage you on the journey. This space is dedicated to sharing stories every week of women who are following Jesus and pursuing their God-given gifts in beautifully imperfect ways. You’ll hear about the fears and challenges that threaten their dreams as well as the joy, courage and confidence that comes from following Jesus even in the unexpected…especially in the unexpected.

I’m your host, Merritt Onsa, and my prayer is that this show will meet you where you are in your walk with God. I hope you will come away from the podcast each week with encouragement to begin pursuing your own dreams even when you still feel flawed, imperfect, unfinished and not ready. Because if you wait until you are perfect, you will never take the first step. Join us!

Do you ever feel like no one understands your passions? Like they just don’t get why you would pour so much of yourself into this dream? Megan Sjuts returns to the podcast this week to share what she’s learned about building community around your creative work and allowing God to push you out of your comfort zone to build and hone new skills within you.

If you’re ready to stop dreaming by yourself, this is the episode for you!

It’s always such a gift when a guest returns with an update about what God has been doing in her life and dream since she last shared on this podcast. In case you missed Megan’s debut here, you’ll want to go back and listen to episode 95 entitled Because You’ll Never Be Fully Ready to Start.

Megan talked before about not feeling qualified to teach design when she had just graduated from design school. She revisits this story and explains how the challenge of trying something she’d never considered and felt unqualified to do helped her grow.

It’s a reminder that God may use something unexpected to open your eyes to a passion you didn’t know you had or a skill you didn’t know you’d be good at. Because He’s like that, you can take it as permission to try scary things and take risks that feel out of your comfort zone just to see what God will do with it!

We end this conversation discussing the one ingredient that may be lacking in your creative work (Hint: many of you have told me this is true for you) and what you should do to rectify this immediately!
