Holley Gerth has been able to achieve her God-sized dream, and she wants to help other women take the first steps in reaching out for their own dreams. In easy-to-read daily devotions, Opening the Door to Your God-Sized Dream shares stories and provides Biblical insight into the promises God has made to us, and the truths we know about Him. Holley helps readers to determine whether they’re on the right path, and provides advice on how to tell whether a dream is truly from God, and how to know wh ...more

Holley has such a gift of encouragement. I love her concept of "God Sized Dreams" -- that there are dreams in our hearts that we cannot carry out by human strength and willpower alone. These dreams unfold gracefully through union with God. She often illustrates this process as "a journey to our Promised Land". It's a winding road with ups and downs, obstacles and victories, and a whole lot of love. This topic is close to my heart.
I read this devotional with one of my closest friends this summer.

First, I have to say that I didn't follow the book completely. This book was designed to be a 40 day progressive journey and as I received this book as a First Read I felt compelled to read it through so that I could give it a review.

In each chapter (day) of this book, the author poses a situation and then goes on to share some personal relevant event in her life. She then offers advice on how to overcome or move through the event and provides you with biblical passages that support her suggesti

Just What I Needed

I've read several books lately that gave the indication either by title or description that they would help with our God-sized dream; however, they were not up to the task. So I didn't have much in the way of expectations for this book BUT it surpassed them and more! I'm so pleased God put this book in my hands at this time in my life. I really needed each and every message. I will be reading it again and again. Thank you, Holley, for following your own God-size dream and writi

Like most devotionals, this got a bit cheesy in parts but also had some really good nuggets. Feeling joyful, encouraged, and inspired.
