      It’s a nice book, a story about defying all odds and reaching your goals, or as author puts it- sacred dreams.

    • Joelene Swearingen says:

      This was one of the best self-help books I have read in a while in that the author does an excellent job giving you practical instructions on how to search your inner self and awaken your dreams. I enjoyed how she mixed in her personal experiences with her suggestions. I never felt like she was preaching or talking down to her audience. I would recommend this book to anyone struggling with "what they want to be when they grow up."

      This nonfiction book seems wonderful for a book club. I find so many thoughts to rethink. I've never thought much about dreams and their meaning. Not of those dreams which come while sleeping or those dreams which might cause me to climb a higher mountain for the sake of others and myself. The author, Tererai Trent, shows how to get in touch with our greatest desires. The question we must ask blew my socks off, "What breaks our heart?" I haven't answered that question yet. I will ponder it befor [...]

      I really liked the stories in this book. Overall it was a great message. The writing was too preachy.

    • Stacey says:

      I didn't agree with everything. Though there were a few nuggets of information that encouraged and inspired me. Chapter 8 on friendships and sisterhood is awesome.
