DREAMER’S INK BOOK INTRODUCTION
Take a journey with Joseph through His Book, DREAMERS INK, and Discover & Pursue Your Life/God-Given Dream!
Those who are pursuing their dreams search through all kinds of information that can help them in their quest. It can become an exciting adventure to discover the hidden things inside of us. Sometimes truth is hidden in various places and it takes a lot of searching to find it. In our search we throw out that which won’t work for us, or place on a shelf for later review that which we’re not sure about. I believe that while this book is written from a Christian perspective, there is a lot of information in it for everyone to glean something that might help them in their journey. Joseph James

CHAPTER 1 – WHAT IS DREAMER’S INK?
DREAMERS INK is more than just a book, gift set, project, or concept. It is an actual journey, or even a way of life if you will. It’s a path not only of defining and realizing our hopes and dreams, but helping others along the way to theirs. When we understand that the fulfillment of our dreams is
dependent on the help and the interaction with others down our path, then we will have a different focus on how we all connect to help bring fulfillment to others dreams as well as our own. We are interconnected and not simply islands in this sea of humanity. So…
CHAPTER 2 – WHAT ARE DREAMS?
Merriam-Webster defines dream as, “a strongly desired goal or purpose.”
Everything starts with a dream. Dreams give us a focal point as to the direction we want or need to take in our life. They are like planning a trip from Los Angeles to New York. We can start out in a general direction heading towards the northeast and then refine it along the way, course correcting
as necessary. God started with a dream/vision and when it was completed, He proclaimed, “It is good. It is finished.”
CHAPTER 3 – DREAMERS
In considering the dreams of many world and generation changers, Joseph’s dream comes to mind. His story is found starting in Genesis 37. It is a typical story of a dreamer. Dreamers are sometimes full of pride, hated, but almost always mocked, diminished, and in some way tormented for dreaming something impossible to accomplish.
What about our book though? How do we access it? How can we know Father’s plan for our life? Is it a good plan? How much does He really care for us? What price will we have to pay with our lives? Well, let’s just look at a few things briefly and perhaps we can get a better idea.
CHAPTER 4 – THE ENEMIES OF DREAMS
Joseph had a dream at the age of 17. He dreamed that his family and others would one day bow down to him. Little did he know what all he would go through to get to that place, but he ended up saving many lives because he never gave up no matter how bad it got and it got really bad. He
got thrown into a pit by his own jealous brothers and sold into slavery. Then, as he was getting his life back together, he was falsely accused of sexual advances by his owner’s wife and was thrown into prison, a dungeon. Ironically, when he was about as far down as he could get, it was his interpreting of dreams that released him into his destiny. Let’s take a journey together and see what all might lurk in the shadows up ahead!
CHAPTER 5 – DEFINING THE DREAM
How does one define their dream? Well, most of what I’ve talked about, the illustrations I’ve shared, and the amount of brainstorming you’ve done so far is a good start. A lot of what the Lord has planned for us is already in us. We just need some help in discovering it. Most of the things we don’t know is the timing, the actual journey, and who are those who will be a part of our life.
CHAPTER 6 – WHEN A TO BE IS NOT A STRAIGHT LINE
Sometimes we might have to walk a path that seems to be going in the wrong direction only to find that there is a connection along the way who can help us get to our destiny much faster. It would be like driving a car from Los Angeles to New York City. We get to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma only to find the path heading south to Dallas, Texas. We can balk at the change in direction as it appears to be going in the wrong direction and a huge waste of precious time. When we finally get to Dallas though, we meet someone who has a plane ticket for us to New York City, thus saving us a lot of time and driving.
CHAPTER 7 – REAL DREAMS ARE NOT SELFISH
Real dreams are never just about us. When I was in sales, I learned that each individual personally knows at least 200 people and has some influence in their lives. When we do the math on that one, it is staggering just how much our actions and our lives cause a ripple effect across our generation. If my dream…
CHAPTER 8 – DREAMERS CHANGE GENERATIONS
Dreamers change their generation and sometimes, many generations that follow. I’m going to use a few examples of some and give my thoughts on them.
CHAPTER 9 – KINGDOM PERSPECTIVE
Society and the world system tries to dictate to us what we can and can’t do. It tries to place us in its mold. A system is something that controls. It doesn’t allow much for creative thinking outside of the box. It crushes the dreams of a dreamer until the dream is proven true. The system doesn’t have room for newbies until they end up forcing a new way through.
CHAPTER 10 – ON TO YOUR ADVENTURE
Sometimes the adventure begins when we let loose, spread our wings, and just fly. Granted, there are still things we must do everyday, but this adventure takes place in our thoughts and imagination. It is in our imagination where we can go and discover things about ourselves. Imagine this! Imagine that! Perhaps some things won’t work, but that’s not what we’re looking for here. We are on a path of discovery, to brainstorm for a while, to try this and that, and to see what might work. There are no wrongs in this process of discovery, except in things illegal which we want to stay away from doing anyway.

Dreamers Ink Project
The Dreamers Ink Project was birthed out of Joseph’s discussions with many people across the USA and Alaska. So many folks feel all alone and isolated, yet we are able to communicate with each other in a greater way than ever before. Why is this? Why is the suicide rate so high and depression as well? So many have given up hope and especially on their dreams. How do we turn the tide? How do we get Americans to dream again in the Land of Dreams? Has America lost it’s way?
