Christopher R. Harper
Our motto is "Celebrate Life Dreaming Fully Awake" because for us, we truly live this way. Every day is a gift from God and we rejoice and are glad that we get to celebrate each day with friends and family. But it wasn't always like this for us. 4 Years ago Christopher R. Harper was diagnosed with a degenerative nerve condition and the best doctors in North America gave him 8-10 years before he would be immobile and incapable of walking. Christopher gave away his multi-million dollar building company in Colorado to a Godly man and moved his family to Destin without knowing how he would make an income or how God would provide, but adamant that he would see those last days with his family to the fullest. Our family was told, after the countless surgeries, that the ongoing pain would only get worse since the condition was degenerative. The most we could hope for, after a consistent regiment of pain medicine, was an ability to "cope" with life. Can I tell you that today Christopher is completely healed! After a year here in Destin, you can find Christopher on surf boards (falling more than surfing), running with his kids along the beach and fishing as though he was never affected by his condition. Having not taken a single pain pill in over a year and not even needing the surgically implanted device in his spine to help control his pain, God truly has healed Christopher. He refuses to allow a diagnosis determine his future when God is the author and finisher of his faith. As simple as it is to write down, it is actually very difficult to Dream Fully Awake and is something you must consciously work toward to accomplish. Dreaming Fully Awake is simply allowing God to be in control of your Dreams. After all, He says in Psalms 37:4 "Find delight in the Lord: and He shall give you the desires of your heart." Our story is unique because God put us on this journey when we decided to put our finances, our jobs and our goals into His hands trusting that He would be here along the journey to help us when we fell. Your story will be unique to your own hearts desires. Be limitless with your Dreams and delight in the Lord in all that you do. Pray with expectancy, knowing that you pray to the King of Kings. Our last encouragement for you is that you would allow God the opportunity to take you beyond what is ordinary and into the EXTRAordinary as you go on your own journey Dreaming Fully Awake.
