I am Second


Back Cover

Countless Stories.  One Incredible Ending.

A major league baseball player.  A Tennessee pastor.  A reality TV star.  A single mom.  A multi-platinum rocker.

What do these people have in common?

They’ve all hit bottom.

And none of them stayed there.

Famous or unfamiliar, these are the stories of real people who reached the end of their strength, the end of their control, and found the most surprising truths.

It taught them not to rely on self or substance but to lean on the only completely reliable source of love, hope, and freedom:  the God who created them.  Shocking in their honesty, inspiring in their courage, these testimonies are critical reminders that no one is too far from God to find him.

Join these and thousands more who have discovered the life-changing power in putting God first and proclaiming, “I am Second.”

Review

I am Second is a powerful book.  Jam-packed with emotional testimonies of people who got to a point in their lives where they hit bottom and declared themselves “second” and God first, you cannot help but be awestruck at the power of God in how he transformed their lives.

Today’s culture is all about “me, myself, and I”.  As humans, we live to serve ourselves, our wants and desires.  But we were created to serve our Creator.  We were created for His great purpose, to glorify and praise Him.  Seeking a life of pleasure will not bring full satisfaction in your life.  True peace only comes when embracing the grace, mercy, forgiveness, and love God extends to us and leaning on the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus.  It does not mean that your life will get better, that it will be smooth sailing, but that there will be a Captain at the helm Who will guide you through the rough waters. 

I am Second is a great and moving read.
