Dream Small: The Secret Power of the Ordinary Christian Life by Seth Lewis

The Good Book



Find your self-worth and contentment in Christ and live out his plan for your life.

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.

"This book took hold of me in chapter one and tightened its grip until, by the end, I was compelled to take up the challenge to ‘Dream Small’. I invite you to join me."

Jen Oshman, Author, Enough About Me, Cultural Counterfeits, and Welcome
"Seth Lewis re-centers us, reminding us that the great life is the faithful life. Reading this book was like spending an afternoon with a kind friend who brings you back to what’s good, beautiful, and true."

"Fresh, invigorating, and liberating. May it be a blessing to all of us ensnared in idolatry of the big."
