Welcome to Dreams of Hope, LLC

 Home of the Pew pal dolls!

 Try out our new shop!

Pew Pals are traditional soft-sculpture rag dolls that come with a pillow and inspirational book.

In 1988 Dreams of Hope founder Ron Burnett had an idea as he was painting a house. He immediately got down off the ladder he was on, went home, and started designing a doll that girls could take to church with them and pray with. His idea was the Pew Pal. Read more about Ron's journey to fulfill his dream.


After many years and many false starts Pew Pals are finally here! Please call us at 757-349-6585 to order your Pew Pals doll or take a look at our online shop.

Pew Pals are 21" soft-sculptured dolls each with a pillow/carrying case. They have waist-length hair. The doll can be slipped out of its pillow and can sit on it next to your child in church to be your child's Pew Pal. The pillow has a poem on the back:

I would like to go to church with you

And sit on my pillow upon your pew.

When you are at home and your prayers are said

I will share my pillow with your sleepy head.



The doll also comes with a short children's book A Friend for Emma Kate inspired by a real Emma Kate who was born with a rare congenital deformity.

Dolls are available unsigned, signed by Ron Burnett, or signed and numbered (both the doll and the book) and included in our exclusive Pew Pals Registry.
