My Review

Heart-Dreamer Presents Many Opportunities for Readers. While the author's writing style is very light and easy to understand, she packs in many more profound messages and thoughts within the pages of this book. I loved Peace Dreamer--but had a little more difficulty settling into the flow of Heart- Dreamer. I wasn't sure what I was to gain from the book. I was about a third of the way into the book when I had my own moment of self-discovery: I was resisting the messages of the book because following my heart and finding my passion are still areas of my life where I struggle to find my path! I stopped and re-read the first third of the book with this realization in mind. The author uses short chapters and highlights "life wisdom" that she hopes readers will take away from the chapter. I didn't take away to-do lists or "do this, and you will find XYZ." Still, I did find many opportunities for personal reflection and inspirational, motivational, and relatable personal stories, quotes, and journal entries.


Heart-Dreamer May Help Readers Consider (and Reconsider) Life Paths. As a society, we too often focus on money, success, titles--and pleasing others or living up to the expectations of others. As a parent of adult and nearly adult children--I am watching my daughters enter college, trying to find their paths and choose their dreams. I am also watching them struggle between the directions their hearts pull them and their desires to please their parents and meet society's expectations. Heart-Dreamer is a book that I am sharing with them. Heart-Dreamer shares a lot of practical, thought-provoking life wisdom from the author and her community members--both physical and online. 


Would I Recommend Heart-Dreamer by Cheryl Melody Baskin? As with Peace Dreamer, Heart -Dreamer isn't a super-structured "do this in this order" kind of self-help book. This book highlights the value and importance of following dreams and finding personal passions and projects of the heart to lead more fulfilling lives. I struggled to settle into the book's messages at first--so be sure to read with an open mind (and re-read if necessary). The messages are a little deeper than face value. From renaming yourself to realizing the value of the true you to the world--there are pieces to gain from every page of the book. I would recommend this book to those seeking some thought-provoking insights into following your heart and creating your own path in life.
