Dreaming in the Desert…book review




We all have them. Looking back on my life, I have made almost every dream that I’ve had (that was in my control) come true. I’m not saying that to brag…in fact, most of the time I’ve made a dream a reality, it turned out to be a disaster.

When I picked up this latest book from my pastor, I had mixed thoughts. On one hand, I was not looking forward to reading another “dreamer” book, but I’ve loved his other books, so I thought “why not.” I was pleasantly surprised that this wasn’t just another “do this and your dreams will come true” book. This was an honest look at pursuing your dreams while staying grounded. How to keep pursuing them in the face of disappointment and the unknown.

In my life, I’ve seen many seasons of desert life while walking toward what I believe God has for me. I’ve also seen how by being open to opportunities as they’ve presented themselves, I’ve been able to see dreams come to life that I had long ago surrendered. Our dreams are funny things that take a crazy amount of faith and persistence.
