The Dream Giver of my favorite books is The Dream Giver by Bruce Wilkinson. The book is about following your God-given destiny. As the book asks, "Do you believe every person on earth was born with a dream for his or her life?" Bruce Wilkinson, The Dream Giver.

Not long ago and not far away, a Nobody named Ordinary lived in the Land of Familiar.

Every day was pretty much the same for Ordinary. In the mornings, he got up and went to his Usual Job. After work, he ate almost the same dinner he'd eaten the evening before. Then he sat in his recliner and watched the box that mesmerized most Nobodies on most nights.

Sometimes, Best Friend came over to join Ordinary in front of the box. Sometimes, Ordinary went to his Parents' and they watched together.

For the most part, not much happened in Familiar that hadn't happened before. Ordinary thought he was content. He found the routines reliable. He blended in with the crowd. And mostly, he wanted only what he had.

Until the day Ordinary noticed a small, nagging feeling that something big was missing from his life. Or maybe the feeling was that he was missing from something big. He wasn't sure.

The little feeling grew. And even though Nobodies in Familiar didn't generally expect the unexpected, Ordinary began to wish for it.

I can't read this book without crying as I dream of God using me. I was born with a purpose. God has great plans for the life of every believer.

I challenge you to dream big dreams. Live out God's purpose in your life. Buy this book. I am sure you will be glad you did.
