Wrestling from a place of rest in our pursuit of God
Simcha Natan surprised me with the release of her latest album, Dreaming, the high quality of her songs and the musical arrangements. Worship at its best. Her music leads you into the presence of God, is never distracting and comes with a perfect blend of both harmony and style.I had never heard of Simcha before, so I was eager to visit her website and was touched by this versatile artist who not only produces heavenly music but also makes beautiful paintings.Her music is, as her paintings, a cry for beauty and peace in a world that is torn apart by strife and worldliness. This world knows enough destruction, so let’s show them a little bit of heaven. Simcha succeeds in this mission.I understand her music is the first of three extended-play compilations in a project consisting of a book, music, devotionals and watercolour artwork that explore a common theme; “being willing to wrestle with God for more from a position of rest.”What more could we want? Simcha gives us the whole deal in Dreaming.

Your CD is amazing! I love it so much, not the ordinary worship album! ‘Magical’ vibes, so fresh and light - great job with this! I love it!
..this slim volume seeks to help the believer realise that our dreams have been put there on purpose by God and that they aren’t supposed to be suppressed or ignored. The dreams Natan refers to here are life goals as opposed to the ones that occur when we’re asleep and, as a result, this book is full of handy thoughts and tips on how to make the most of life through what God has placed on our hearts...Natan’s writing style is friendly and accessible and this, along with the spiritual depth and practical advice contained within its 71 pages, makes this book a useful tool for anyone seeking a closer walk with God.

I ‘nibble’ on the richness of your book every morning Daily God prepares a MEAL for me from a small nibble I take a small portion, because I want to savor each element Beautifully written, and POWERFUL— Sharona - Israel
What you are about to read is like a good movie with various characters, vantage points and visceral moments that are all connected by a common theme - one of great risk and great reward. I think there is something in all of us that wants to believe for great things. Dare to Ask, explores that belief by reintroducing a cast of biblical characters whose experiences and decisions clearly correlate with life’s challenges and circumstances today. Like a master archeologist, Simcha skillfully brushes away the dust and debris that has covered over dormant dreams so that divine destiny can be rediscovered once again - not just the destination, but the process. The revelation in the title chapter alone is well worth the price of admission, but the waves of wisdom, insight, honesty and personal application continue to roll until the very last page.Dare to Ask challenges the resigned mindset that we are merely silent spectators in this life and beautifully reminds us that dreams are possible, miracles are real and hope is attainable if you just dare to ask.

‘Dare To Ask’ has a beautiful tapestry of practicality and spirituality woven throughout the pages. It challenges readers to dream our God-given dreams, use our God-given gifts, and remove clutter from our hearts so that we can experience the fullness of what God has for us. Through her testimony and scriptural insights, Simcha demonstrates how to be grateful in all things - including trials and desert places. If you need encouragement, restoration, or a fresh stirring of hope in your heart, you will find it here! Prepare to go deeper...Michael & Sara Thorsby - Burn 24-7 New Bern, NC Directors (USA)
As I returned home this evening, there was a package awaiting me from Amazon. With great excitement it was your book. I had not planned on beginning reading it this evening. I had planned to just read the forward & preface. Well... lady that’s all it took. I was captivated and couldn’t stop reading. However, almost didn’t get through the first chapter, I was crying so hard I had to continually stop to wipe the tears just to see the pages.You wrote my heart on those pages as though you had somehow taken a glimpse into my soul. As if the first chapter wasn’t humbling and powerful enough; then came the second & third. All I can say is THANK YOU FOR WRITING THIS BOOK. IT IS GOING TO TOUCH SO MANY LIVES. If you never receive many praises or comments on your writing. I want you to know that the Holy Spirit has spoken so many revelations to me that I’ve been waiting and yearning to hear for so long. May The LORD Bless You and ALL that you do for HIS Glory.— Dana - USA
To the reader of Dare to Ask, I would say that when you reach the end of the book, you will conclude that this has been a kairos moment. It is a serendipity, a surprise discovery. Instead of it focusing on aspects of worship from a gifted worship leader, you will be taken on a moving personal journey that deepens your love for the Messiah. It leaves a lot of questions unanswered, but in its place you are left with the deep assurance that the Lord is in control . We are simply left to keep on asking and keep on trusting. This is a beautiful devotional book written from the heart.Dr David ElmsICEJ UK Director
