A Special Announcement

I am excited to share with you about a special project that I am honored to be a part of. . .  I was accepted as part of the launch team for a very, very precious book that I truly believe will transform the lives of women all over the world.  Just what is the special book?  It is “Dreaming with God: A Bold Call to Step Out and Follow God’s Lead” by Sarah Beth Marr.

While I am not quite ready to write a review for this book just yet (because I just began reading a few days ago) in  the meantime I would love to share with you a few of my favorite quotes, some basic information about the book, and the lovely book trailer that will definitely convince you to read pre-order this gem so that you can start “Dreaming with God”, too! 

Just a few of my highlighted quotes from my advance copy of the book include:

God’s got you. God’s got me. God’s got plans for your life. He knows every detail. He knows what is best. He’s at work behind the scenes. I like to think He’s most actively at work on your behalf particularly on the days you feel as though your prayer requests may have gone unnoticed. His love for you is deep, personal, and ever-pursuing. He’s passionate about you, and He has surprises up His sleeve and just around the corner. The challenge is not to rush Him but to trust that His timing is best. It will be worth the wait. He will answer, and then your heart will dance with joy as you look back and see how He worked for your good. But in the meantime, He invites you to start dancing now and live as though He’s going to bring the dreams He has planned for you to fruition.


Our dreaming journeys with God begin when we see that the way He made us actually points to His dreams for us.


Lord, make me a dreamer, because dreaming draws me closer to You. Help me listen to the desires of my heart, but at the same time, let me take each one to You. Help me decipher which desires are Your desires for my life and which are my own. Help me be willing to let You shape and mold the desires of my heart into the dreams You have for my life.


God’s got you. God’s got me. God’s got plans for your life. He knows every detail. He knows what is best. He’s at work behind the scenes. I like to think He’s most actively at work on your behalf particularly on the days you feel as though your prayer requests may have gone unnoticed. His love for you is deep, personal, and ever-pursuing. He’s passionate about you, and He has surprises up His sleeve and just around the corner.

He will answer, and then your heart will dance with joy as you look back and see how He worked for your good. But in the meantime, He invites you to start dancing now and live as though He’s going to bring the dreams He has planned for you to fruition.

I could go on and on (my ebook has pages and pages of notes that I’ve highlighted and saved!), but I hope these few quotes can help you see just how special this book truly is.  Honestly, this feels like a book I’ve been waiting a long, long time for.  If you feel the same, don’t hesitate to pre-order this precious book by Sarah Beth Marr, and let your friends and family know about it too. . .

From the back cover:

The world tells us that the way to make all our dreams come true is to set our own course and work hard every day to achieve our goals. But when it’s all on us, we end up feeling exhausted, frustrated, and disappointed when things don’t turn out as we’d hoped.

Have you ever wondered if there’s a better way?

There is. God knows the desires of our hearts–He put them there. And He calls us to trust Him, to lean on Him, and sometimes . . . to wait. Weaving together her unique perspective as a professional ballerina with profound truths drawn from Scripture and a life of faith, Sarah Beth Marr reminds us that we are not dreaming alone. We can surrender our plans to God, stay in tempo with His Spirit, and step into a deeper relationship with Christ.

If God has given you a dream, you can be sure that He will be with you every step of the way.
