The Ludy’s wrote When Dreams Come True to offer their own example of a God-written love story, providing the vision for that “something better” that so many young people have never seen.

**5 stars**

Wow. I don't even know what to say. When Dreams Come True: A Love Story Only God Could Write was intensely beautiful. I cried. And cried again. I giggled a lot. I felt wonder touch my soul. And hope grow in my heart. And joy filled me. Reading this amazing love story, I kept getting glimpses of how great God's love for me, personally, is ... and that brings so much joy! Makes my soul sigh with longing to know Him more.

Such an incredible book. Interesting, humorous, poignant, gentle, deep, adventurous ... It was easy to read and keep me turning pages. I got so into it!

The beginning part is about not-so-good high school years; and a lot of it was quite disturbing and made my heart sorrowful to hear that such immorality was happening. (I was homeschooled, so I didn't experience a lot of those kind of things). So a bit of a warning there. It can feel depressing and such. But, Eric and Leslie do not use graphic language or explicit scenes, or anything.

So, ultimately, it's this amazing tale from beginning to end. I was surprised how much it encouraged me! Ladies, you must read this book! I know your heart is filled with dreams of prince charming and "happily ever afters", but God is longing to whisper to you, I have a dream for you that is so much more beautiful than you can imagine. At certain parts of this book, I felt I like I could be a princess. God's beloved princess.
     I think this book could really benefit men too! Specifically, guys who want to get married. So, people, just pick up this book! I don't think you will regret it. ^_^

This is Eric and Leslie Ludy's story. And it is truly a love story only God could write.


  1. So glad that you got a chance to read this, Shantelle! The Ludys have been such a wonderful, encouraging influence in my life -- I love listening to Eric's sermons on, too. :-)
