Publisher's Summary

“I believe in you. You have a great destiny. You are meant for great things. And it’s possible to live a wonderful, extraordinary life.” That is the promise offered by best-selling author and illustrator James A. Owen in this remarkable and inspirational meditation.
In Drawing Out the Dragons, James shares personal stories and the deep truths he learned while navigating past obstacles and adversity toward a life of lasting belief and joy. We all have a grand destiny, but sometimes we feel we lack the power to achieve it. But we always have the power to choose. “Every drawing, every life, is nothing but a series of choices and actions. Make your lines. Make your choices. . . . What you create from there is entirely up to you.” Drawing Out the Dragons has the power to uplift, inspire, and change your life. Motivational and inspirational, this book is ideal for graduates, dreamers, or anyone making life’s most important choices.


What the Critics Say

"James inspires and motivates both the young and young-at-heart with personal stories that share an important belief: that you can choose to lead an extraordinary life if you will just persevere, stay focused on your goals, and believe in yourself." (LeVar Burton, educator, actor, entrepreneur)

inspiring and strengthening.

It's great to hear such inspirational words from some who was in the mud, but didn't have the training and experience that most self help authors have. You are a guy who figured it out the hard way not a train psychologist that has real life experience to draw from. You make me believe anyone can do it. Thanx for this and all you other work too.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I didn't listen to it in one sitting...but nearly so.

Any additional comments?

Drawing out the Dragons is an inspirational story - I like how if you put your head down you can find a way to make anything work. It's a great message, and I'm glad that James Owen shares his stories to kids at a time when it'll do them the most good. Well worth a read or listen.
