When Elleni’s youth group makes plans to embark on a road trip to Grace Place Camp, one state away, she thinks it the perfect place for Julian to find the answers he’s been looking for.

I'm D.S. Fisichella
Author, homemaker, dreamer and a friend to many; seeking to help others towards hope and truth. When I first moved to the town of Pinellas Park, Florida from Costa Rica, I didn't know how to speak English. Call it luck or call it skill, by the fourth grade I could speak fluently and was able to write my first poem, for the first time discovering my love for writing. Ever since, I've used this outlet to cope, to express, and to create. It is my belief that God gave me writing as a gift. It seems only fitting that I would use it to honor and glorify Him! I first set out on my journey to write Dreamer when I was pregnant, jobless, and (quite frankly) sick of watching Netflix. One afternoon I was watching an especially cheesy Christian movie when I thought to myself, 'Even I could write a better story than this!' At which time I felt the Holy Spirit challenge, 'Then do it!' That for me marked the beginning of a long, at times seemingly hopeless, but overall amazing and rewarding experience!
