An encouraging and inspiring book, though I found the title a tad misleading. I feel that 'God-given' would be a better word than 'God-sized'. The idea is that we all have dreams that come from God, whether large or small in the scheme of things.

The author unpacks many related topics - how to know if a dream if from God, how to avoid blockages, how to deal with resistance... and much more. Questions at the back of each chapter for further reflection, with the option of downloading a printable work book.

I found some of it a bit too Americanised for my tastes, but overall I thought it an excellent book with much to think about. Aimed at women, but there's no reason why men shouldn't also read it.

This is an amazing book full of insight into the true meaning of introversion. We're not awkward and shy, we just need more time and space to process what's going on because we process at a much deeper level. I love the scientific backup for how introverts operate and why our quiet skills are very much a needed part of society.
If YOU are an introvert, you need to read this book. If someone you KNOW is, you still need to read it. I was able to put words to my thoughts and feelings with this book so that I could explain to my husband what's going on. I understand myself better now too.… (mere)

I would give this six stars if I could. An excellent, thought-provoking and ultimately very encouraging book about the positive side of introversion. It begins with some science, explaining how brains are differently wired, leading to the different reactions to social activities and being busy in the outer world.

What a relief to feel so validated, and encouraged to move forward with positive introverted activities rather than worrying that one 'should' be more outgoing or busy with groups or action in society.

The book has a Christian focus but those of no faith could skim those sections. Well worth reading with checklists, diagrams, and some very clear writing that I'm sure I will want to read regularly.

A person can't help but feel a smile spread across their face the minute they pick up this little book. Perfectly sized to slip in your purse - it is like a cup of encouragement on those rainy days when your heart is heavy.

Women wear many hats and are under tremendous pressure - this is not to say that men do not face the pressures of todays world - but simply that women feel the emotional pain of this pressure. There is always something to live up to, some disappointment to overcome, some task yet unfulfilled, some dream left unlived, some pain to get past, some hurt to forgive, and the list goes on and on.

52 to devotionals, 52 weeks of the year, 52 subjects that are close to women's hearts around the world. Finally, 52 invitations to meet the Father, experience His love, know His peace and hear His voice. 52 moments alone, 52 times in prayer. 52 weeks to contemplate and put to heart the devotion for the week.

Holly Gerth is known for her compassionate heart and encouraging words - here it is on best display. Easily carried in a purse or in the glove box, or stashed on your night stand - this is a book that you do not want to miss out on.

I will be purchasing these little jewels as gifts for the women in my life - a cup of joy in their deserts.

Thanks to the publisher Revell for this complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.
