Joni Parsley Daydream Believer
Tuesday, March 04, 2014
It’s finally here! The book is being released nationwide today! It doesn’t seem real yet! This has been a life-long dream and God has been so good and so faithful to allow me this privilege. I have you to thank because without this blog, there would be no book and without wonderful people like you reading, there would be no blog. A writer has to have a reader! Thank you, thank you, and thank you! I pray that you share in any blessing this book may bring others.
I was reading some quotes that I had written in the front pages of the remarkable book, “A Prayer Journal”, by my one of my favorite authors, the brilliant Flannery O’Connor. I suppose if I could write like anyone, it would be her. She has an impeccable gift that captures my heart on page one! This particular book provokes tears every time I read it because it reflects so many of my deepest feelings. There are a few quotes that are appropriate for this moment in my life. “Don’t let me ever think, dear God, that I was anything but the instrument for Your story.” Likewise, this is my prayer.
The next quote is a gentle reminder which I’ll use often. “When a book leaves your hands, it belongs to God. He may use it to save a few souls or try a few others, but I think that for the writer to worry is to take over God’s business.” This book may have my name on it but it clearly belongs to God who so graciously guided my thoughts through the whole process. To Him be all the glory and honor! I pray that these pages may be used by Him as He so chooses. I’m simply humbled to be used of Him in any capacity and I’m honored beyond that.
My dear Journal family, I hope you will get a copy! To get one - go to or a bookstore near you! May I also ask that you help us get the word out through social media? Feel free to comment on Facebook and/or the Journal page, tweet or retweet on Twitter, text friends or use any other form available! I know we can count on you as we have these last six years!
I’d love some feedback so let me know what you think of the book - my prayer is that it blesses you in all the ways it needs to!
Thank you for sharing this special day with me! All praise belongs to my precious, loving Father God!

Thanking God for blessings too many to list. He is my all and my always-the glory and the lifter of my head... He never fails.

Why the Name

"For a child, it’s as easy as blowing out candles on a cake, or wishing upon a star. But as for one of those 'grown-ups,' 'No dream comes true until you wake up and go to work.' " ...
