Dear brave DREAMers,
What’s NEW with YOU? I hope you are continuing to DARE to DREAM!!! DREAMing is contagious, so I pray that you are not only seeing the effects in your own life, but also in the lives of those around you. There have been amazing changes happening on this side of the page. Some changes are fancy and some are just strategic, but they are all exciting to me! Here are some highlights of what God is doing with DREAM.
Dreamsmith Communications, LLC: We have officially graduated from being just “Kristi Smith”, the lone widow writer, to “Dreamsmith Communications, LLC”! This redesign helps to separate out my personal life from the business and allows us to DREAM even bigger!
DREAM Book Promotion Video: We are proud to introduce this professionally made video that briefly, (less than 3 minutes) yet powerfully, describes the DREAM book. Take a look HERE! And PLEASE SHARE THIS ON YOUR FB PAGES AND OTHER MEDIA…we never know who needs to hear this life-giving message. SHARE it…and ask your friends to SHARE it, too!!! There are so many more people than you can imagine that desperately need to hear this video.
Speaking of DREAM: This video also shows me speaking before a live audience. One of our DREAMs is to be able to impact greater numbers of people and larger audiences. “Something powerful happens when I get to speak directly into the hearts of people and transfer this message of hope and healing.” Speaking Life, Cultivating Courage, Sparking Laughter, Awakening Dreams. For more information on how to schedule me to SPEAK LIFE at your next event, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Facebook Page: “Dreamsmith Books” is a great medium for posts, photos, blogs, and more. Abbi Joy Wensyel, my oldest daughter, will be using some of my quotes with her amazing photography to create an original line of powerful visuals. Be sure to “like” these and share them on your page. Please visit and like our Facebook Page!
DREAM Team: You may wonder why I keep referring to “we” when you are used to only “me”. We are creating a DREAM Team. More accurately, God is assembling this collection of fabulous DREAMers. The DREAM Team currently includes:
*Kristi Smith – author & speaker
*Abbi Joy Wensyel – photographer
*Faith Smith – hair & makeup artist
*Lisa McClurg – business assistant
*Jamie Kenny, Kenny Consulting Group – marketing
*Happy Kamper Films – video production
*Cheryl Bender – personal assistant
*Rhondi Mullins – artist/painter
DREAM Guide: We have created a study guide to complement the book “DREAM…a guide to grieving gracefully.” This document is FREE and you can download it from our website at www.dreamsmithbooks.com. The DREAM Guide offers insightful questions either for your own personal reflection time or it can easily be used for group discussion.
National Grief and Hope Convention: The highlight so far this year was the first ever National Grief & Hope Convention. It was in April in Indianapolis. Cheryl Bender, Jamie Kenny, and I were there as exhibitors to promote and sell the book. We are looking forward to being involved at the 2nd annual event in April next year! There was a very impressive lineup of national level speakers including these and others…
*Dr. Bernice King – daughter of Dr. Martin Luther King
*Tanya Brown – sister of Nicole Brown Simpson, speaking against domestic violence
*Todd Burpo – Bestselling NY Times author of “Heaven is for Real” (now a major motion picture)
*Dr. Ken Druck, Ph.D – national pioneer in personal transformation
Lower Shipping Prices: We are tweaking the website to make it even more user friendly. One of the changes that you will be happy with is that we have re-worked the shipping costs. Now when you place a book order (for one or more books) you will find new shipping prices that are substantially lower than previous charges. It is one way we can help you. We recommend that you have extra books on hand for when you need them.
So there you have it…DREAMS do come true!!! Keep on DREAMing, keep on believing, and keep on trusting God to deliver you through whatever challenges you are facing. When things don’t happen the way that you want…or in the time that you wish they would…hold on to God’s promises. He will help you dare to DREAM again and again and again. Never stop DREAMing!!!
Dare to DREAM,
Kristi Smith and the DREAM Team
