From the Back Cover

Hello, you . . .
The one looking for more purpose and listening for God's plan.
Here's what that restlessness is really all about: there's a God-sized dream knocking on the door of your heart.
Before you think that sounds too big, let me assure you, God-sized dreams aren't really about size at all. They're about the desires God places within you that perfectly fit your heart.
God-sized dreams are an essential part of who you're created to be and what you're called to do. They lead to more meaning, joy, and connection with the One who gave them to you.
In the busyness of life, it's easy to ignore them or let fear shut them out.
But this is your moment.
Now is your time.
The "more" your heart is longing for has been there all along.
Let's open the door to all God has for you together.


With this life-changing message, Holley Gerth invites you to discover the dreams God has given you--and then dare to pursue them. She takes you by the heart and says, "Yes! You can do this!" and guides you forward with a loving hand. Along the way, she provides insightful questions and offers action plans that will help you take the next steps toward making the deepest desires of your heart a reality.


"Holley held my hand as I helped launch one of the biggest, scariest, most beautiful God-sized dreams I've ever been a part of. This book is the blueprint that helped me make it through."--Lisa-Jo Baker, social media manager for DaySpring, community manager for the website (in)courage, and visionary for the (in)RL conference

"I can't remember the last time I turned the pages of a book so eagerly. Holley's words have revolutionized my way of thinking with such a simple concept: that my dreams can't be bigger than God."--Tsh Oxenreider, author of Organized Simplicity, blogger behind SimpleMom.net, and creative director of SimpleLivingMedia.com

Holley Gerth is a bestselling writer, certified life coach, and speaker. She loves connecting with the hearts of women through her popular blog and books like You're Already Amazing. She's also cofounder of (in)courage and a partner with DaySpring. Holley lives with her husband, Mark, in the South. Hang out with her at www.holleygerth.com.

We all long to live with more purpose, passion, and joy. Yet in the middle of our hectic lives, the God-sized dreams that have the potential to lead us into all God has planned for us are the ones that tend to get lost. With her intimate, approachable style and constant encouragement, popular blogger and author Holley Gerth invites women to rediscover the big dreams God has given them--and then dare to pursue them.

With the enthusiasm and honesty that we all want from our closest friend, Holley encourages women to overcome excuses--too busy, too late, too far out of my comfort zone--and believe that their God-sized dreams can become reality. She takes readers by the heart and says, "Yes! You can do this! Let's go!" and then guides them forward with a loving hand. A licensed counselor and certified life coach, Holley insightfully combines inspiration with practical application in this positive book.

You’re allowed to be happy.
There’s nothing wrong with your dream.
You are a blessing.

If these are words you need to hear, then YOU’RE MADE FOR A GOD-SIZED DREAM is a book you’ll need to read. Positive and encouraging, Ms. Gerth takes you by the hand and pulls you along – almost the way I saw a younger woman ‘guide’ an older one today. A bit faster than prepared, but still safely and lovingly.

This book will take you through chapters such as:

 The “More” You’re Made For
 You Might Have a God-Sized Dream If…
 The Heart of a Dreamer
 What Comes Next for You?
 A Guide to Overcoming Your Fear…
 And much more

If you have a dream and you aren’t daring to dream it, then YOU’RE MADE FOR A GOD-SIZED DREAM is a book you need to read. Recommended.

I received this book free from the publisher so I could review it. I was not required to write a positive review - these are my own thoughts and opinions.

First of all, this is the third book I've read of Holley Gerth's. I enjoy her personable, warm style of writing - like you are sitting down with a cup of coffee with a friend. It invites you in. I also like that Holley does not act like she has all the answers or has it all together.

To be honest, I was a little concerned that, with the title, this book might be about God giving you what you want or something like that, but Holley makes it clear that God's plans for us are sometimes very different than the ones we have for ourselves.

The book is not only very encouraging, but it is practical as well. I particularly liked the chapter on fears. Being a fearful person, it was refreshing to not just read, "don't be afraid - trust God," but also how to recognize the type of fear and practical steps to overcoming it.

My favorite quote from the book was, "God is not committed to your safety. He is committed to his kingdom and your ultimate good. He promises you security, yes, but not a free-from-fear life."

If you are looking for a book that will help you take that first step toward your own dream or a book that will encourage you to continue on the path you've already started down, this book is for you!

Last year, I had the opportunity to review a previous title from Holley Gerth - You're Already Amazing - which I absolutely adored. So when I got offered You're Made for a God-Sized Dream, I expected to be swept off the ground with what I read. Not so. Don't take me wrong, I am sure the book could be fabulous for someone wondering what they can do in life. But for me at this point in time where I believe that I am doing what I was called to do - homeschooling my kids and being involved in a healing ministry - the book is a little bit redundant.

The author is helping people to discover their strengths and will guide the reader in discovering what they are passionate about. You will find places to jolt down answers to questions and reflections in order to help you find the God-Sized Dream of yours. You will be encourage to fulfill this dream and go deeper in a special guide that you can download from her website.

As I was reading the first chapter, I had trouble with a specific section in it.

The people in your life may not always like that you're following your dream. They may even whine about it from time to time. But not pleasing people isn't the same as being selfish. You don't have to make everyone in your life happy - the only thing you must do is be obedient.

My problem with these lines is that the author doesn't cover the situation of marriage. What if following your dream cause a stain in your relationship with the man you are married? To the point that it can cause separation or divorce... Sometimes your spouse might not be at the same level as you for this kind of things - especially i f it's a huge dream of yours. I would say that you need to talk about it with your spouse and decide together how to go ahead with it.

I have had the privilege of talking with Holley Gerth, the author of "You're Made for a God-Sized Dream." We sat on a couch and shared our hearts and in those few moments, captured in the midst of a very busy, very loud conference, one thing became very clear: Holley Gerth is a true encourager. The words she spoke, the way she listened ... it was all just as real and honest as the words she writes on her blog and in her books.

"You're Made for a God-Sized Dream" is like having your own conversation with Holley. She's a cheerleader for all of us who wonder if we should even try. This book is a practical guide for all of us dreamers who long for a little bit of direction and someone to say, "Go for it! I believe in you." From identifying the dream in your heart to developing a plan for reaching it, "God-Sized Dream" offers step-by-step guidance and insight. Filled with meaningful self-evaluation questions and written in a gracious and loving tone, "You're Made for a God-Sized Dream" is the perfect book for anyone who has a dream ... and as a gift for the dreamers in your life. I foresee this will become the graduation gift of choice for all the female college graduates in my life.
