Dream: Discovering God’s Purpose for Your Life by Dutch Sheets

Since reading a Sharon Jaynes book on dreams ( The 5 Dreams of Every Woman ) as part of a women’s book study at church this spring, I have been reflecting more and more on my own dreams in life–which ones have come true, which ones haven’t yet, and even which ones I have given up on completely.
Because of my recent focus in this area, I was immediately drawn to the new book from Bethany House by Dutch Sheets, entitled Dream: Discovering God’s Purpose for Your Life , and was so glad to have the opportunity to read it for a review.
Sheets focuses our attention on the origin of dreams right from the introduction, where he shares how our dreams are a gift from God:
Your Designer dreamed dreams for you before you were even born, then skillfully wove them into your DNA as you were created, along with the ability to find and fulfill them. His destiny for you will be the sum of those dreams. The journey of life, then, is meant to be a dream quest; finding what your Maker has dreamed for you brings life’s ultimate satisfaction and should be life’s ultimate pursuit.
