I can't wait for you to hear 6 year-old Connie Talbot singing Somewhere Over the Rainbow.

Yes, you'll hear the lyrics the dreams that you ‘dare to dream' really do come true, but more importantly, this darling little girl reminds us that we are Rachel.

For those of you not familiar with the biblical story of Rachel and Leah, Rachel is the younger and more beautiful sister who vies for and wins the heart of Jacob. However, because ancient custom required the elder sister marry first, Jacob pays the price of marrying Leah (who also loves Jacob) in order to marry Rachel.

While most young girls would align themselves with Rachel, believing their dreams will come true, most women have come to believe they are Leah, adopting an attitude of acquiescence, taking what is handed to us.

But here's the rub.

To achieve our dreams, Leah's got to leave the building so that Rachel can move in.

Who better to help us remember we are Rachel, both generous of spirit AND capable, than the young girls in our lives?
