Can you really help change the world?
This retreat offers readers techniques to renew their personal relationship with God. In Dream Bigger: A 21-Day Journey to Unlock God’s Dream for Your Life, motivational speaker Dan DeMatte incorporates:
· Day-by-day focus questions to guide prayer journaling
· Stories from the saints and history

Bishop David Ricken, Diocese of Green Bay wrote, "In this book Dan DeMatte provides a twenty one day pathway which will help you take this journey of discovery for the outpouring of the Glory of God."
Relevant prayers are included to help you learn to be, in silent friendship with the Father, before doing, and working for His glory. As readers pray and discern what God is inspiring them to do, they will grow in humility and live with faith like a child.
Also included is a practical 5-Step plan on how to put God’s dream for you into action. Tips on how to network with others in accomplishing your dream are provided as well.
Readers are also guided through a rigorous, transformational examen. They will learn how to grow in forgiveness and heal old wounds so they can be “all in” for the Kingdom.
I found this book edifying to receive God’s affirmation, while making specific goals to help change the world. Listen to more about the book on the Son Rise Morning Show.
Experience Divine intimacy and healing as you work to attain your dream. Live in expectant faith and see miracles happen – both individually and as a Church.
Bishop Kevin Rhoades, Diocese of Fort Wayne South Bend, reflected, "Dan DeMatte’s zeal and love for the Church have touched many souls at Damascus Catholic Mission Camp. He now brings that same energy to this new book, which invites Catholics to respond with greater hope and vigor to God’s plan for themselves and for the world."
Charles Chaput, Archbishop Emeritus of Philadelphia, enthused, "Dan DeMatte has dreamed big dreams and his new book invites you and me to do the same. Get this book and you will be inspired."
The expected release date is April 26. Pre-orders may be placed at: Dream Bigger: A 21-Day Journey to Unlock God’s Dream for Your Life.
