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.

This book is the blueprint that helped me make it through. I lived Holley's words throughout all the speed bumps, pitfalls, and loud voices of fear pummeling the inside of my head and the pit of my stomach. Holley's encouragement is practical, grounded in experience, and laced with grace, gospel, grit, and enough experience to convince you not to quit when the fear gets the loudest but to press on and into the God who gave you the dream in the first place. Everyone needs a guide when they're on a God-sized journey. With a sense of humor and a side of cheerleading, Holley is the one I'd recommend with two thumbs up."

If he's in my soul-planted dreams--and I think he is--then why wouldn't he also craft my life to fulfill those very same dreams?

"Reading You're Made for a God-Sized Dream isn't like reading at all; it's more like a visit with a trusted friend, the one who speaks truth and wisdom into your life and helps you to see yourself the way God sees you. I have no idea how Holley accomplishes this (does every reader feel like they've found a new best friend?), but she does! God used this dream of Holley's to help me believe in the dreams he's seeded in my soul--those urgings that won't go away, the things that hide in secret places but are clawing for escape. Sifting through Holley's insights, it's almost like I have permission to dream now; I didn't realize how much I swept those hopes to the corners of my heart."

"I used to think God-sized dreams were only for people with perfect faith, powerhouse social media platforms, or personalities that thrive in a high-stakes environment. Then I met Holley Gerth, and little by little she helped me realize that God-sized dreams are for everyone, including me. Including you. Combining her rock-solid wisdom as a certified life coach with her sincerely encouraging heart, Holley invites you to take a peek at the God-sized dreams designed specifically for you."
