Publisher's Description

Do you have a dream? Do you have a creative idea stirring within you to do something different or start something new? If so, you're not alone. Many people have God-given dreams but don’t know how to discern what they are and develop them into something real. Most of these dreamers aren't business people or experienced entrepreneurs. They're just sincere Christ-followers who need a spiritual and practical guide to help them realize their dream—whether it be to start a new ministry, non-profit or business, or even the vision to begin a new lifestyle. Drawing from her personal experience and the stories of fifteen others, spiritual director Beth Booram has written this companion guide for those who wonder if they have a God-given idea but don’t know what to do with it. Interviews from people like Chris Smith, Phileena Heuertz and Randy Reese who have courageously embraced a God-prompted idea are included with each chapter to add further vision and insight. Carefully designed exercises at the end of each chapter will guide and provide practical support for those who are on the spiritual journey of identifying and acting on a God-given dream. By the end, you will know that one of the privileged tasks of life is to discern, shape, birth and sustain something new.

Editorial Reviews

"Most dreams go unnoticed or ignored and quietly die. Others are noticed but not adequately nurtured, meeting the same end. Yet the God of superabundance continues to knock at the door of our intellect, desire and imagination, inviting us to participate in the restoration of all things. So what a remarkable gift to have such a wise woman, steeped in the realities of dream-birthing, provide us with reliable ways of noticing, nurturing and birthing the very life of God into this world! Beth Booram has given us a healthy incubator, and I light up when I think about the unaccountable good that many thousands will receive from the dreams that are made incarnate through this book!"
"Booram weaves in the stories of her directees and a number of other people she interviewed. These stories, not only of success but also of the challenges during the different stages of birthing of a large leading, are helpful and instructive, especially when considered alongside the suggested journaling exercises at the end of each chapter."
"If you ever have felt as if a new idea or dream was stirring inside of you, but you couldn't tell whether it was yours or God's, Starting Something New may be exactly what you need. . . . This book would be perfect for youth pastors/leaders who are feeling as if God is calling them to do something new within their ministries. Warning: You are going to want a lot of time to process this book and may benefit from having the involvement of a spiritual guide or mentor."
"A thoughtful aid for the discernment of one's call, this book will be especially helpful for those considering a new dream. It will give you some guidance as well as courage to take a risk on the dream of God that is coming forth from you."

"Read this slowly and reflectively. The stages of discernment and growth Booram describes can spread out over many years. Let this be one of many companions in discernment throughout the long and joyful journey of starting something new."
