This is just fairly stated in a broad conclusion of what dreams are about, but then again how does it compare to your life's mission and even passion? For me as a person I always relied on my dreams. This is how I believe it is God's way to talk to you without any disturbance from Satan. What does the Bible say about dreams? Hebrews 1:1-2 indicates that the principal way in which God communicates with people today is through Christ via the written Word that God inspired, not through visions or dreams.

I also believe in my life's mission and I also believe that this walks hand in hand with each other. Through this your passion is born. So what am I trying to say or where am I going with this? Little Minka's Boutique was created and born when I had my daughter Minka. With this I started dream about a online website which all became true during the second year. Then my life's mission started to interfere which is I want to help people.

A bit more on this. I always pray to God that He must guide me and show me how to help others. That I can not like my husband stop in the middle of no where and help someone or even open the door to someone as I am a woman. We as women do not get it so easy now a days as men do. They are fearless and do not care what will happen. So God already made me a Sunday School teacher for 3 years which I enjoyed and end of 2016 I decided my work is done. I need some more challenges in my life and I never knew what God had planned for me!!

So in December of 2016 my husband decided hey lets sell my car!! I was pissed at him for doing it without me knowing about it. Then I told him I would love the camera I have always dreamed about! We then went and bought my very first DSLR! I was ecstatic! I always wanted to be a photographer and now is my chance. Then I enrolled in Shaw Academy to learn more about photography and photoshop. And as each month went by I could start to see the progress I have made. But I had another passion besides just the normal genres and the boutique.

I love boudoir photography! I want to incorporate the photography with boutique and maybe start a in house one stop kind of thing, but where does boudoir fit in? I struggled with this question for months now and I still am. I want to help women to realize no matter what they are still beautiful. Even after having children and getting all the tiger scars. I then realized it will somewhat clash with my normal genres and the boutique setup. But God had other plans He want me to do ALL 3!!! And I am like WHATTTT!!! NOOOOO!!! Then I get the answer anything is possible through HIM! Now I rely on my instincts and go with what God told me. I have to incorporate all 3 and I know I will make it work.

Ladies and gents I want to introduce to you our in house photography service and boutique under one roof!! Here I will create magical things for every child and every women! Stay posted and see how my dreams and passion starts to unfold!

LOVE Irene
