No Dream Is Too Small--or Too Big--for God

Do you have dreams you long to fulfill yet feel you just can't? Wai Jia felt that way.

Having met abandoned girls in Nepal who were traumatically evicted repeatedly, she longed to do more. Inspired by their audacious hope, she dared to dream brave--and, at the age of 18, raised $100,000 to build them a home, changing their lives forever. Since then, her life has been a series of radical yeses to God's call to faith.

Today, as a multi-award-winning, international humanitarian, physician, and nonprofit founder, Tam addresses the self-doubt and fear we all have. Through powerful stories, biblical insights, and practical principles, she invites readers to embrace risk and push past setbacks.

If you've ever felt too small to pursue your dreams, now is your time to step out in faith--and watch God do something far greater than you imagined. Dream brave.

"Wai Jia Tam's story of faith and perseverance has been a great blessing to witness. Love God, dream His dreams, and pursue them without fear."--HEIDI G. BAKER, PhD, co-founder and executive chairman of the board, Iris Global

"An inspiring and delightful book about having bold, brave dreams for God and seeing how He brings them to reality."--J. JOHN, REVEREND CANON

"Wai Jia truly lives out the axiom that God did not call us to be safe, but He called us to be brave."--PASTOR BENNY HO, senior pastor, Faith Community Church, Perth


"Wai Jia's stories are told with such color that they're going to pull you in. You're going to be right there with her, gazing at the faces, hearing the voices, feeling the emotions, and looking up at the towering impossibilities. When you see how God turned her impossibilities into possibilities, your heart will fill with confidence that God will do the same for you."

Bob Sorge, author of Secrets of the Secret Place

"This is an inspiring and delightful book about having bold, brave dreams for God and seeing how He brings them to reality. Don't read this if you aren't open to being challenged and hearing God's

J. John (Reverend Canon)

"If you've ever wondered whether the wild stories of Acts--featuring a God who answers fledgling faith--could be true today, read Dream Brave. From the very first story of being in a Malaysian
Buddhist temple and tentatively asking God if He was real, Dr. Tam invites us to listen and learn as she weaves together real stories, probing questions, scriptural insight, and powerful testimony of the God who still invites us to ask anything in His name."

Bronwyn Lea, pastor and author of Beyond Awkward Side Hugs

"If there is anyone who is qualified to write about dreaming brave, it is Wai Jia. She is a dreamer of dreams. But she does not just dream, she has the DNA of an 'Indiana Jones' who has seen many of those dreams come to pass. She is, in my estimation, one of the most colourful and adventurous people I know. She continues to amaze me with her stories of exploits with God, and I am certain there will be a part two to this book, because the adventure continues. I wholeheartedly recommend you read this book and dare to dream."

Reverend Yang Tuck Yoong, senior pastor, Cornerstone Community Church, Singapore; chairman, The Alliance of Pentecostal and Charismatic Churches in Singapore

"We are all created to dream big, and Dr. Wai Jia Tam in her book Dream Brave will greatly inspire you to pursue your God-given dreams. Not only will you be inspired, but each chapter ends with reflection, activation, and prayer to empower you in your unique journey to dreaming big and dreaming bravely. This is a needed book in this hour."

Steve Backlund, Igniting Hope Ministries

"Dr. Wai Jia Tam has written a book worth reading, not just because it is packed full of truth, but because it is also an authentic expression of who she is. Every chapter records an encounter with
God and a deep spiritual lesson learned about faith. Throughout the time I've had the privilege of knowing Wai Jia, she has been the personification of such courageous faith. She truly lives out
the axiom that God did not call us to be safe, but He called us to be brave."

Pastor Benny Ho, senior pastor, Faith Community Church, Perth
