Listen To My Dream, A Book by Debi Pearl

March 1st, 2010 by wys


A few men in history arise and call to others to be numbered among the ones that serve a greater cause. These men encourage others to hope and pursue a higher calling. These are they which inspire and cause us to believe in possibilities, to dream of more.

This was the way Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. spent his life. His life is in contrast with others that loved fame and sought to be well-known. 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 prodded people to pursue excellence.

What changed King from being an average preacher to an international figure calling for change? It started when Martin Luther King met Coretta Scott. Coretta and Martin Luther both loved opera. That was what brought them together for their first date. The following spring, King proposed to Scott and she accepted while agreeing to support his calling as a preacher. After the incident where Rosa Parks was arrested in 1955 for not giving up her bus seat to a white man, King was called and with Coretta’s permission, accepted the position of leading the boycott against the bus system that propelled him to a more prominent stage in life. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. went on to inspire change amongst his followers by taking action to gain certain civil rights such as the right to vote, the right to gather to talk and the right to march.

Not surprisingly, Dr. King’s life has served as inspiration for a tribute written by a grandmother from Tennessee entitled, Listen To My Dream.

This volume is the first children’s book written by Debi Pearl. 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 is available now and was made possible with the cooperation of the Heirs of the Estate of Martin Luther King, Jr.
