"Start"


I received an advance copy of Jon Acuff's new book "Start" for being a part of his Launch Team. I loved it! I ended up with pages of notes to rival the notes from "You're Made for a God Sized Dream" by Holley Gerth. I think that these books are a great companion to each other. In "Start" there are road maps and guidelines and practical advice that makes the "road to awesome" an achievable goal. 

Do you remember when you were a kid and you thought that you were awesome? What happened to that person? For me, I grew up. I started listening to others tell me lies about what I was. But you know what, that person is still there buried under layers of hurt and pain begging to come out. And she can. She is dreaming already and following a path laid out by God. But I think what made this book a great companion to Holley's book was the extra "road map" guides. There are five stages to awesome. They are learning, editing, mastering, harvesting, and guiding. But every journey starts and ends the same:  you start and when it's done you start again. Acuff explains all the steps along the way and offers sage advice along the way. This book is now available and should be on your "To Read" list for dreaming.
