Is there a gap between you and your dream?
A few years back, Joël Malm had the idea to lead people on outdoor expeditions with a spiritual, God-centered focus. Following God's lead, he created a vision map, started his organization, and made it happen.
This book is a response to the question he often gets: How do you do something like that?
Whether you want to start a business, raise a family, run a marathon, plant a church, restore a relationship, or climb a mountain, you can take practical steps to see your vision come to be.
Vision Mapis not a formula for overnight success, but it is a template to start anyone on the path to envisioning a God-given dream. God often gives us a difficult problem to solve, and we just need a push in the right direction to find the answer.
Joël and I met at the bottom of the highest mountain on a continent. He didn't get me to the top by just hoping I'd get there, he walked with me and told me what I might find out about myself on the way. He's done the same thing with this book. It's a book about courage and resolve and taking the next steps to live into the big life God made you for. This book is a cool cup of water on a long hike and is a story told by one of the most humble, loving guys I know. Buckle up. You're going to love the adventure.

Joël is a man of great character and passion for Jesus. The thing I love most about him is the way he was willing to think outside the box to implement God's unique calling on his life. The results have been nothing short of amazing!

James Scott Bell, author and bestselling writing coach
I'm a dreamer. Always have been and always will be, but the greatest source of frustration in my life is bridging the gap between my dreams and reality. I've been waiting for someone to write a book like this that helps every dreamer see the next step before them. I am grateful the book finally exists, and if you are a dreamer you will be too.
