“In Daydreams, Daniel Parkins gives a raw testimony of God’s sovereignty through intense times of pain–honestly portraying his emotional, physical and spiritual strain and giving unique insight into the life and mind of one who has experienced utter agony beyond his control. He conveys this through multiple medical diseases, family tragedy, parental divorce, and the deep feelings of being alone and angry. In Daydreams, Daniel Parkins challenges us to no longer be content with the walking nightmares we are often in, but to wake up and experience the joy and freedom it is to trust in our awesome God.”

    This review is from: Daydreams: An End to My Nightmares (Paperback)

    I was given this book as a gift from a friend of Daniel’s before it was released. I myself have been through some very difficult medical and life issues and Daniel’s ability to be sometimes brutually honest about his feelings toward God was very helpful for me. However he always turns back to hope… I have purchased this book for many of my friends and have heards nothing but good replies.

  2. 5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Writer…so honest, so humble, so Godly, so encouraging!, July 4, 2010

    We prayed for Daniel Parkins to be born before he was ever conceived and rejoiced at his birth. His precious mother gave us our baby shower, so we go a long way back knowing the tragedies that struck this young man’s life. This book is one amazing read by a man so sensitive, insightful, and Godly that it is no wonder that God chose him to endure the heartaches he has suffered. However, his test of faith through trials did not stop in 2006 when he wrote this book. His oldest brother was accidentally killed from his own gun in Sept. 2008, yet Dan’s faith never wavers. Read this book if you want to learn how to handle difficulties in your life and find healing for your own wounds.

  3. 5.0 out of 5 stars Brutally Honest, Honestly Full of Hope, March 9, 2010
    By Emma Bennett “C’est la vie” (California)
    This review is from: Daydreams: An End to My Nightmares (Paperback)

    My name is Emma Bennett. Daniel Parkins is my pastor. The night that he handed me this book that he read was a night where he told us that his body was accepting his new liver rather well and that he was in good health. Praise God. 🙂 I lent this book to my friend Corey, whom I was not sure about whether or not he was Christian, but he gave me positive feedback on what he thought of it.

    Corey let me know that some of the details were brutally specific and honest. That does happen to be Daniel Parkins. Through his ministries and his accounts, he is always very honest and open about everything. He has been through some harrowing times in his life. The joy of God’s love always radiates through it all.

    I highly recommend this read, not just because he is my pastor, but because I want you to be inspired to find the joy of God’s love no matter how much the world or anything else hurts you.

  4. I met Dan Parkins in Crowley Lake, California, when he became my daughters teacher. He got very sick that year as his second liver began to fail. We visited Dan in the hospital at Christmas time. He was dying. “Daydreams.” is only a portion of the Daniel Parkins story. Although very difficult to read at times, perhaps because we knew and loved him, the gift that God has given Dan to tell his story is a powerful one. Dan brings his reader right onto the road beside him as a companion, and then, even if you aren’t quite ready, he takes you into his skin. You feel his pain, and his joy. But more than that, Dan shows you his God who is savior and redeemer. Dan’s story will change your heart forever…
