We all long to live with more purpose, passion, and joy. Yet in the middle of our hectic lives, the God-sized dreams that have the potential to lead us into all God has planned for us are the ones that tend to get lost. With her intimate, approachable style and constant encouragement, popular blogger and author Holley Gerth invites women to rediscover the big dreams God has given them--and then dare to pursue them.

With the enthusiasm and honesty that we all want from our closest friend, Holley encourages women to overcome excuses--too busy, too late, too far out of my comfort zone--and believe that their God-sized dreams can become reality. She takes readers by the heart and says, "Yes! You can do this! Let's go!" and then guides them forward with a loving hand. A licensed counselor and certified life coach, Holley insightfully combines inspiration with practical application in this positive book.

My take on this book:
All of us have hopes and dreams, and no matter how big or small those dreams are, each one is no more important than the other because they are our God sized dreams. Sure maybe we put those dreams on the back burner or even decide to give up on them but its those dreams and desires that help propel us forward keeping us from settling from something less that God has in store for us.

"You're Made for a God-Sized Dream" by Holley Gerth, will motivate and inspire, it's really like having your own personal cheering section within the pages of a book. I found the book to be very informative, not only does it share the five lies that keep us from dreaming, but also how to help us understand what God's plan is for each of us. Written in a down to earth way, I felt like I was hearing encouragement from a dear friend. Each chapter is well thought out, and is very user friendly, I found the Go Deeper Guide found at the end of each chapter had me pausing not only to reflect on what I read, but also reflecting on where I am and  where I want to be. There is also a Dream It Do It section that encourages us to put into action what we have gleaned from the chapter. Overall I think that God is working thru Holley to encourage and motivate us to be all that God wants  us to be. A perfect gift for anyone struggling with where they are in life but also a wonderful gift for a graduate who is about to embark on their life's journey.

A complimentary copy of this book was provided in exchange for an honest review.
Available March 2013 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group."
