Description: Building Your Field of Dreams is both a compelling personal story and a practical and inspiring guide for anyone who has ever hoped for a better life.Mary Morrissey's own dreams were nearly shattered at age 16, when pregnancy forced her into a reluctant marriage that nevertheless became the crucible for remarkable lessons in faith. As she was tested by the near-death of one of her children, by life-threatening kidney disease, and by years of struggling to make ends meet, she clung to her determination to be a minister.Now, with powerful examples from many dream-builders she has known, she shows how anyone can identify their deepest desires, build a partnership with God, confront obstacles and failure, and overcome the mental blocks that keep us from our potential. It's a great message, compellingly delivered by a great teacher.

Posted by Anonymous on 3/2/1999
I am reading this book for the third time, and each time a new insight speaks to me. Following the principles set forth in the book, I have changed my life entirely. I am now living on the French Riviera, something I never knew I could do. Because of things I learned from this book, I am realizing even more dreams. Thank you Mary Morrissey!

Posted by Anonymous on 1/6/2000
Mary was able to ask five simple, but profound questions about any dream (or plan) to determine if it is was the right one. For those questions alone, this book is well worth the price. It starts out a little slow, but by the end it becomes a vital tool for living life. The guy who hated the book is so wrong. It's all about internal happiness.

Mary Manin Morrissey is tremendously gifted, and this is evident from chapter one throughout the book. Somehow she reaches into the souls of those who have lost their way, had their faith shaken, or given up hope. I would recommend this book to any lonely or forlorn individuals looking for a light at the end of the tunnel. Mary Manin Morrissey can show you the way to that light, and she can also, with her magical words, help you through what may seem like an endless struggle to reach your own field of dreams.

There are two books I turn to when I need a little pick-me-up. One is Marianne Williamson's "A Return to Love," and the other is Mary Manin Morissey's "Building Your Field Of Dreams". Both veer towards the New Agey and talk about Jesus in ways that may turn readers off. But, if you can get past that, I recommend them. I've read both several times, and each time I do I feel better about the world for a few days. Mary Morissey's story is personal and inspirational, and I find that it has helped my career in many ways. This book understands that an essential part of succeeding in life is not allowing yourself to settle for less than what you want. We all do this from time to time, but are compelled by a still voice inside us telling us we aren't happy. When we actively pursue that which we're passionate about, time disappears and we live in the moment.

I believe most people have a pursuit that makes them blissful, but making a living that way isn't always easy to conceptualize. It's easy to get mired down in a job that pays the bills, and that looks good on the resume. If you are in that place, this book may help you to move on. I turn to it when I am tempted to to settle, and I have found that its advice rings true. One step is titheing, which I never would have believed if I hadn't done it a few times. When you're down to your last money, give 10% to charity, Morissey advises, and you will attract money into your life. I've done this, and each time within three days money had appeared in my life from an unforseen source. I'm not sure why this works, but I have found that it does.

Much of this advice can be found elsewhere; it is a general "think positive" type of book. I like this one in particular, though, because Morrissey is a dynamic personality. She was a teenage bride and mother, and has built an impressive career based on the principles outlined. She writes in a simple, well organized way that is easy to digest.

I have read many books in the metaphysical and New Thought genres, but none of them ever stated things as simply as Mary does. Her words have cleared the confusion and fog from my mind, and I am finally able to understand my place in the universe! Her way of telling stories and parables, much like Jesus did, really helped to put things in perspective. I was able to relate to almost every character, and now I am working on matching their triumphs. I have had the pleasure of meeting Mary in person recently! She is truly a saint! I know my life will change for the better now that I have started to till the soil in my own "Field of Dreams". At the very least, the book has given me hope!
