We are all looking for significance and meaning in our lives. The world tells us that this comes from dreaming big, achieving personal success and making a big impact. But the Bible says that self-worth is found in knowing our Creator, and contentment is found in discovering his purpose for our lives.

This book reminds us that when we know Jesus, we are free from the world’s definition of success. We can listen to God’s word and direct our dreams towards the things that he says matter most, even if they are small and unimpressive in the world’s eyes.

Celebrate the dreams God has for us: serving others, investing in individuals and living faithfully. Although these things seem small, their impact will be bigger, and their rewards will be better, than anything we could dream for ourselves.

"Dream Small" is a gift. With an engaging conversational style, Lewis shares his own struggles and gently leads the reader to consider the deep questions of life. What is important? How do you know if your life is successful? What do you do when you fear your life doesn’t measure up? How do you even know what measure to use? "Dream Small" considers all of these and encourages the reader to embrace God’s design, his evaluative measure for our lives, and the ways in which we can live rich, meaningful, and satisfying lives whether they are big or small in the eyes of others. Humble, wise, insightful, and deeply personal, "Dream Small" is an excellent guide to the complex questions of life, giving sound answers grounded in the gospel.

At its heart, the Christian faith demands a transformation of our values: "Deny yourself"... "the first shall be last"... “make it your ambition to lead a quiet life.” While Christians know these things, so often we fail to live by them. This little book by Seth Lewis is a powerful reminder of their importance and a needed call to value supremely what ultimately matters to the God who made us and gives us every ounce of strength. In some ways, it is an easy read. But if we listen to what the Spirit is saying through this book, it is tough, for it demands being counter-cultural, even within the Church. Hoping this book gets a wide reading.

Dream Small, is a quiet little volume brimming with overlooked greatness that peels back for us the delights of being an underwhelming collaborator with the true Hero, who, in the field of his epic tale, has hidden for you to find, as Seth writes it, “the mustard seed kingdom that grows in the ordinary things of ordinary life.” I found his entreaty to step into this truer kind of freedom compelling and I’m sure you will too.
