Renewing Your Mind: Dreaming the Right Dreams

Wednesday, May 27th, 2015

The popular inspirational saying “You can do anything you want to do” is well-meaning, but untrue. Too often, we chase dreams that seem at first like they’re good ideas, only to find that they aren’t the right dreams for us. So I believe that a key step toward making our dreams come true is discovering what dreams we should focus on first. That’s part of the message of my young adult novel Dream Factory, which is set in Hollywood, California during the classic “old movie” days — the 1930s.

Aspiring actors and actresses in the novel dream of making it big in the motion picture industry that was known as the world’s “dream factory.” When they struggle to see some of their dreams become reality, they find themselves in a different kind of dream factory – one in which God and his angels challenge them to transform their dreams. If you’re a young adult, or have a special young adult in your life, I hope you’ll consider Dream Factory for your reading list (or gift list) this summer!

Dreams Can Come True

Sunday, June 2nd, 2013

That’s part of the message of my new novel Dream Factory, which is now available in paperback through Amazon.com’s CreateSpace store. It’s a dream come true for me to get this novel out to readers after years of hard work on it!

Soon, Dream Factory will also be available as an ebook for Amazon.com’s Kindle. I’ll post the link for that here as soon as it’s ready.

Here’s the book’s description:

Do you dare to believe that dreams can come true?

Dream Factory raises provocative questions about the meaning of success and the nature of faith.

During the golden age of Hollywood, actresses Vivian Vogel and Constance Montgomery, actor Luke Sanders, and producer Jack Morgan each pursue their own dreams of success. They work in movie studios known as “dream factories” for producing films that shape the dreams of audiences worldwide. When they struggle to see some of their dreams become reality, they find themselves in a different kind of dream factory – one in which God and his angels challenge them to transform their dreams.

Vivian, Constance, and Luke all dream of stardom. As Christians, they dream of bringing hope and joy to audiences, yet they also struggle with less pure dreams of fame and fortune. Jack is in the business of helping others make their dreams come true, but at a cost. When he becomes obsessed with one of his own dreams and tries to force it into reality, he pays the ultimate price for it.

Will the novel’s characters cling to their own dreams, even when doing so puts them in danger? Or will they risk losing what they’d thought they had wanted so they can seek God and his dreams for them?

God sends angels into their lives as he shows them that his dreams for them are much greater than what they’ve been dreaming for themselves.

Dreams that come from God really do come true!

Thanks for checking it out.  I hope you gain lots of enjoyment and encouragement from reading Dream Factory!

Blessings,
