Title: Dreaming with God: A Bold Call to Step Out and Follow God’s Lead

Author: Sarah Beth Marr

Publisher: Baker Books

Publication Date: 2018

Format: Print book

Length: 195 pages


“Does God want us to have big dreams?” “Am I allowed to pursue my earthly dreams?” “What if my dreams don’t come true?”

Professional ballerina Sarah Beth Marr answers all of these questions in her book, Dreaming with God. With her unique perspective as a dancer, Marr gives encouraging, scripture-rooted truths about and insights on how she followed her dreams and how they coincided with God’s plans for her. When the world and the Bible give different answers on how to pursue dreams, Marr would shine a light on God’s path.

Marr reminds her readers that God holds everyone’s dreams in His hands. No one has to carry the pressure on his or her shoulders, for when individuals delight in serving the Lord, He provides a worthwhile calling. God places dreams on a person’s heart so the individual may pursue goals for His glory. He places talents in men and women so they may glorify Him with them. Marr also gives advice for dealing with what may seem to be failure. She offers a reminder that attaining a dream will never be as fulfilling as attaining Christ, and everything goes according to His plan.

This book is cozy, personal, and applicable to any dreamer’s life. Each chapter ends with questions for the reader, along with space for journal responses. Dreaming with God was written with the ability to equip readers with the tools and encouragement needed to pursue dreams that are invested in Christ.
