by  Beth Marr
The world tells us that the way to make all our dreams come true is to set our own course and strive every day. 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 was a better way?

There is. God knows the desires of our hearts--he put them there. And he calls us to trust, to lean on him, and sometimes . . . to wait. Weaving together her unique perspective as a professional ballerina with profound truths drawn from Scripture and the life of faith, Sarah Beth Marr reminds us that we are not dreaming alone. If God has given us a dream, we can be sure that he will come alongside us as we work toward realizing it. Using her own story as a catalyst, Marr encourages women to surrender their plans to God, to stay in tempo with his Spirit, and to step into a deeper relationship with Christ. When they do, she says, they will be able to move confidently into the future, knowing that their dreams and God's desires are aligned in perfect harmony.

My Thoughts:
Dreaming with God is a breath of fresh air. This book had be grabbing my journal out and writing down all the thoughts that came to my mind as I was reading Sarah's words. I was praying and listening to the voice of God for His dream for my life and not my own. This book is captivating for every woman who wants to lean on their own understanding but longs to lean into their creators vision for their lives. As people who are broken because of the curse, we long for His plan and unity with Him. I love that this book helps you find purpose and meaning. This book is a source of great encouragement and will have you feeling more spiritually light. I love how Sarah weaves in advice and her own experience through dance to help the reader gently feel nudged by the spirit to the calling of God. This book is wonderful and a must read for different seasons of your life. I am keeping this one on the shelf. 
I highly recommend this book, especially to women going off to college or women in transition. It is a great source of strength and encouragement. I give this book 5/5 stars.
