Caesar was a farm dog on a homestead in Montana in the 1930's.
He herded the cows and helped around the farm with the family and six children, later growing to ten.
My father had told me about how, when Dad was small, Caesar had saved his life three times!
I have written and illustrated these stories for you in my book Caesar.
When Mary turned 28 years old, she was not at all sure about what she believed or how God might work in her life. She was a person who dreamed a lot, so she decided to ask her dreams to show her what she believed. To do this, she journaled all her dreams when she woke in the mornings. She did this for fourteen years and witnessed amazing happenings through her dreams. The Mary she first saw in the dreams was very different than who she thought she was and could do things she never knew she could do. Slowly over the years her inner self and her outer self began to come together. DREAMING INSIDE OUT is an uncensored story of her working progress. As she worked on her journaling, a voice said to her,"You will write a book about dreams when you are much older." It didn't occur to Mary that she wasd already working on that book back then.
