Shawn Feddern has a big dream… and here it is in his own words:
“While listening to the radio this morning, I heard Mitch Matthews talk about Big Dream Gathering.
I was very encouraged to know such a group existed and to know that I could share my big dream with others and hopefully recieve and give encouragement to others.
My biggest dream is to use my love of motorcycling to help others see the love of Christ in themselves. While some of the minor goals to get to this overall goal are a bit selfish in my opinion that is the biggest overall goal of my big dream. Idealistically i would love to become a builder of bikes and have products that demonstrate love and craftsmanship and beauty through design for the common buyer.
Since my biggest goal is to use my love of motorcycling to help others see the love of Christ, I have started my own blog in order to try to be a witness to others. It seems easy for some people to say Christ this and Christ that, but I try to do it in a way that Christ is revealed in a non threatening way.
For my selfish dream, I am trying to save up money so that I can learn how to build bikes through a course in Minnesota or Illinios called Chopper College, I may have the name wrong, but I wrote a bit about it in one of my blogs. I’d also maybe like to take some classes in motorcycle or engine maintanence so I would know how to repair whatever it is i wish to build or make, as I have also toyed with the idea of having my own repairshop/ or buisness.
The biggest thing I need for this dream to become a reality is encouragement. I know my dream will take time and money, and of course God’s help along the way. When I try to look at the big picture it’s easy to become frightened. Depending on who you share things with, it’s easy to become discouraged due to their own understanding and faith. While this is good in some ways, it’s also very easy to think oh I can never reach my big dream, so why even bother.
In closing, I’d just like to thank you for being an encouragement to me and others in sharing and trying to live their big dreams out. I’m sure you’ve seen all kinds of dreams, and it has been interesting to read the dreams of others on your website. I have included a link to my blog so that you can see that as well. http://onewildridescfedd.blogspot.com/
