History shows that some men have the ability to call to others to rise, stand and be counted for something greater than self. These are the purveyors of hope, individuals that spur others on to a higher calling, a nobler purpose. These are they which inspire and cause us to believe in possibilities, to dream of more.

Such was the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. He stands in stark contrast to those that grasped at the spotlight for the sake of prominence and fame. He didn’t just push for change in the laws that governed access and opportunity; he pressed for hearts to be moved to do the right thing. He encouraged others to live their lives in pursuit of excellence.

It should not be surprising then that a grandmother in a rural community of Tennessee found Dr. King a fitting inspiration for her tribute: LISTEN TO MY DREAM.

This is Debi Pearl’s first venture into children’s literature. With her husband, Michael Pearl, as illustrator, Mrs. Pearl has managed to produce a work that continues the call of Dr. King to the next generation. The book will be available starting December 15, 2009 and was made possible with the cooperation of the Heirs of the Estate of Martin Luther King, Jr. Watch for more details here so that you can reserve your copy of LISTEN TO MY DREAM by Debi Pearl.
