The Dream Giver by Bruce Wilkinson


I AM pleased to announce that my book club selection for May 2012 is a book that I, Shawna Marie, have never read. As many books as I’ve read, buy and read regularly, surprisingly, this book is new to me. It was recommended to me by Reverend Bobby a couple of  times. When I went online yesterday to check it out and order it for myself, I decided to go ahead and make it the book club selection for this month. It looks to be a really great book!

Here’s the description so you have some background on the book:

“Bestselling author Bruce Wilkinson shows how to identify and overcome the obstacles that keep millions from living the life they were created for. He begins with a compelling modern-day parable about Ordinary, who dares to leave the Land of Familiar to pursue his Big Dream. With the help of the Dream Giver, Ordinary begins the hardest and most rewarding journey of his life. Wilkinson gives readers practical, biblical keys to fulfilling their own dream, revealing that there’s no limit to what God can accomplish when we choose to pursue the dreams He gives us for His honor.”

Now, even though I no longer reference God as “He” and find doing so a throw back to patriachal belief systems, I’m going to overlook the clearly stated perspective in the description which does reference God as “He” for the greater good of exploring the jewels of wisdom which surely are contained in this book. I mean, Reverend Bobby has not actually recommended any books before that I haven’t already read so, I’m gonna trust this is a good one.

Do check it out for yourself and let me know if you’re gonna read along with me this month. Feel free to comment below or contact me directly. My email is

    Shawna this is a really good book. I have read this book several times also at Universal Truth Center they used this book along with the bible to teach us to never give up on your dreams and always dream big.

      Hi BE~LOVED Ramona! Yes, I’m loving this book. I started it yesterday and… wow! This time we’re going to have an online chat about this month’s book. Since you’ve read it several times I’m sure you’ll have plenty to add to the conversation. I’ll keep you posted about exactly where, when and how. Thanks for posting up on the blog! 🙂
