I'm not at all saying these are bad or wrong answers.

This book reminded me that God really does fulfill your dreams even if it isn't in the way that I expected them to be fulfilled.

Rarely do I ever read a book like this that speaks to me and pulls me in like this one did. I like to read books written by women for women; books that deal with real-life issues both good and bad. The 5 Dreams of Every Woman is one of the most useful and spiritually rich books I have read in a long time. There were so many moments that I felt Sharon wrote just for me. I am sure that just about any woman who reads this book will have a similar experience. Sharon gives us a lot of personal stories from her life and from the lives of those close to her and she applies Biblical truth to show that God is with us no matter what.

I want to keep this review short because there is very little I can say that will do this book justice. Each woman reading it will have her own experience and will be able to reach a new level in her relationship to God. I've always known that God loves me and wants the best for me, but Sharon has highlighted scripture that really drives it home in a new way for me. I absolutely loved this book. I had such a difficult time putting it down because I did not want to let go of that feeling of peace this book gave me. The 5 Dreams of Every Woman is fantastic and a very pleasant surprise in my Christian walk.

This book was provided for review by Harvest House. I was under no obligation to write a positive review. This review is my honest opinion.

Five dreams of every woman? What are the common dreams that connect us? What are my own dreams? Have I ever stopped to examine them? Have I achieved those dreams? If I haven't, where do I start? What is God's plan for me?

This book helps us understand our inner-most longings and how we can come to terms with them through God's faithful love. 4 stars****

I thought this was really a good book for those who have gone through the pain of having their dreams shattered and are struggling to build their lives over again from the ground up. The author helps us to get in touch with our dreams and desires, discern whether they are dreams worth pursuing, and the hope that God can turn our lives into something wonderful. Peppered with stories from the past and present, this book will inspire you to put the past behind and start walking into your future.

Format: Paperback
I found this book so utterly disappointing that I stopped reading about halfway through and just quickly skimmed the rest to make sure my disappointment was not premature or unfounded. Usually I don't give books bad reviews, but since I wasted $18 of my hard-earned money on this, I felt that I should, if only to save one person from making the same mistake if they had the same expectations as me from this book. I'm sure the author's heart was in the right place. But I found the cover information to be very misleading. What I was expecting was a book that would guide me through examples from the Bible that would help encourage me to not give up on my dreams, believe in myself and have faith that God wants to prosper all His believers. Instead what I got from this was essentially a bunch of sentimental drivel overloaded with disappointing metaphors, unanswered questions, and many unexplained (and loosely related) sidebars from people interviewed for the book. For example, have no friends? God is your friend. Have no husband? God can be your husband. Have no children? Take care of someone else's children. I'm not at all saying these are bad or wrong answers. But for someone like me who is looking for practical encouragement that the best is yet to come and God does indeed want to help fulfill our dreams, sorry but you're not going to find that information here. Instead the overall theme for the book seems to be, "Be happy with not achieving your dreams! God knows what's best for you and if major parts of your life remained unfulfilled, then that's God's will and you should accept it." Maybe this philosophy works for some people, but for me it's a weak, watery excuse for failure.Read more ›

Everyone has dreams. Not just the bigger house, nicer car dreams, or fancier clothes dreams, but deep desires, placed within the heart by God Himself. While both men and women go through life never realizing their dreams, author Sharon Jaynes speaks specifically to women in her book, THE 5 DREAMS OF EVERY WOMAN...AND HOW GOD WANTS TO FULFILL THEM. Jaynes, an international inspirational speaker and Bible teacher for ladies' conferences and events, speaks to women about realizing and fulfilling our deepest longings and desires. Based on lots of research and personal testimony, Jaynes has come up with the top five dreams of most women. They are:

*To have a daddy who loves me
*To be a bride
*To be a mommy
*To be beautiful
*To have a best friend
The first section covers those childhood dreams listed above. As little girls, most of us deeply longed for these things. We twirled our dresses for our daddies. We played "house" and were "mommy" to our baby dolls. We spent hours in front of the mirror experimenting with makeup and hairstyles. We hopped from friend to friend, trying to find that one girl we could bond with, who totally "got" us.

And years later, as women, most of us can name at least two dreams on that list we still long for today. Some women may find themselves getting defensive about one of these "common" dreams. Perhaps there are women who have never dreamed about becoming a mother. Of course, as with everything, there are going to be exceptions, but these are the five most common dreams of women around the world.

Section two reminds us of three women from the Bible who had dreams.
