Broken dreams happen to all of us.

It can be as simple as looking forward to a cup of tea when we get home from work, only to find you forgot to buy some milk.

It can be waking up to a letter that has been pushed through your door over night telling you that you have just 2 months to find a new house to live in, when you know there is no way you can afford to move (we’ve had that happen, more than once).

Broken dreams can be a spouse filing for divorce or losing your job through redundancy when you’ve just taken on a mortgage.

“I want you to know that no matter what you are going through, whoever you are, irrespective of what you have done, there is a Hope that can overcome all of those things.”.

Andy B

We all have dreams, and they vary from person to person, and with the different seasons of our lives.

We also, all, have dreams that have come true, and dreams that have been shattered.

The one thing we – each of us – have in common is that we know what it is to be frustrated by life; to be have to change plans we’ve made simply due to a situation we unexpectedly find ourselves in, and often which is not one of our making or choosing.

Above all is God. And it can be easy to ask God why He failed and let us down. If that is the question on your mind, then you’re in good company. A man named David had exactly those same battles, albeit a couple of thousand years ago. You can read about his particular struggles in the Book of Psalms, where he laid out his broken dreams at the feet of God, very frequently and descriptively.

What set David apart , though, was that he had a hope that did not come and go with the changing of the wind. His was a hope that was certain, even thought it was frequently tested and battered.

I have that hope too, and so can you.

And that is why Andy B wrote Broken Dreams, and Hope! In this book Andy B shares some raw dreams he has had which have been shattered. But he also shows us of ever present reality of hope. That hope has a name, and His name is Jesus.

    Andy, wanted to make sure you got to see the review I left on Amazon. I can only hope that it will inspire others to purchase their copy. Review: “I’ve gotten to know Andy Berry through his blog Berry Bunch Family. What a delight it has been to purchase and read his first book. As I read Broken Dreams and Hope, I felt as if I was sitting and having a conversation with Andy B. He is down to earth and easily relatable. He puts word and voice to the struggles of life we all face in one form or another. This book can be a one sitting read or one you read slowly. (I did both). It is for the person who is a new Christian, for one who has known Christ a long time, and for the person who doesn’t know Jesus yet. (If you are the latter Andy will introduce you.) For each reader, Andy has a word of encouragement drawn from the comfort He received from God. For this reason I give this book 5 stars and look forward to more books by Andy Berry.”

      This is really moving. Thank you: I am in tears as I read your words.

      It sums up all I hoped my little book ‘could’ be.

      Sorry for a later than usual reply – we’ve taken 4 days out as a family, for some much needed chilling out, and deliberately doing nothing!

      Andy B
