My friend Heather wrote a book.
A few months ago, she asked me to read it, give my opinion on my blog, and then give away a free copy. I thought that sounded like a good idea, and then…I moved.
Now that all the boxes are unpacked, and I’ve settled down to read Heather’s book, I find the timing ironic. Her book is called Dreaming Big, and I’m reading it at exactly the time in my life when I’ve been having a dream make-over. In the last month, my life has changed dramatically, and it’s been a time of re-examining what we’re doing here, what we want, what we feel God is calling us to, and what we’re going to do about it.
I find that slightly uncomfortable.
There are parts of Heather’s book that make me feel slightly uncomfortable. In a good way, if you know what I mean. I don’t think following our dreams could ever come under the topic of “comfortable”, anyway.
Although the book has a bit of a youth focus, there is fantastic stuff in there for anyone. Besides the fact that the topic is hugely important, I also love it that Heather is all over the Bible in this book. I really appreciate her insights into Scripture, and love it that this isn’t just a book about succeeding and accomplishing our dreams for our own advancement. It’s about God’s dreams for us, and how we can get on board with what He’s been doing all along.
You should read it! And you could win it.
Here’s how we’re going to do this whole giveaway:
In order to enter the contest for a copy of Heather’s book, all you need to do is leave a comment on my blog, anytime this week.

To start off, I must ask…Anyone else out there who’s also struggling with clarifying some life dreams? Do you ever find it difficult to determine whether it’s God’s dream or yours?
