Your Dream. God's Plan.: Are You Longing for Something More?
by Tiffany Smiling
Your Dream, God's Plan: Are you Longing for Something More? by Tiffany Smiling is a beautiful memoir. This book deeply spoke to me as Tiffany first experienced seizures before they determined what was wrong with her as a young teen. As she described each seizure, I relived my own journey and story of seizures. Tiffany didn't just experience seizures, but it was the beginning of her being diagnosed with cancer and then surving a procedure that left her paralyzed on one side of her body. Several years of recovery, therapy and she still did not fully recover, but have a new normal.
God had a plan for Tiffany and a bigger dream than she had dreamed for her self. She could clearly hear God telling her to help the orphans, which led to traveling and missions work. She knew that God would only be willing to use her if she was willing and obedient.
What I enjoyed most about this book was the fact that I felt that Tiffany was very transparent about her journey through the ups and downs. From dealing with cancer as a youth, to her hurts with a boyfriend in college and then listening to the call on her life from God. She has experienced so much and I think her book has the ability to impact so many lives because of her obedience. I give this book 4/5 stars. A favorable review was not required and all opinions expressed her are my own.
Though she was given just three months to live as a child, today Tiffany Smiling—writer, speaker, and entrepreneur—is changing the kingdom of God around the globe. She’s a cancer survivor, an injustice fighter and, above all else, she is a devoted follower of Christ.
She founded the With All My Heart Foundation, an organization dedicated to building the global church and caring for vulnerable children around the world. In 2016, she also founded With All Her Heart, an organization equipping woman to fulfill the calling that God has ahead of them.
In her first book, Your Dream. God's Plan., Tiffany invites her generation to trade in the broken dreams they have for their life in exchange for God's greater Plan.
