Out Live Your Life by Max Lucado {Book Review}

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 :


From the moment I saw the cover of this book I knew I wanted to read it. As you can see the cover shows a little boy with a towel wrapped around his neck like a cape. It looks as if he can take on the world. It reminded me of my son who does the same thing and then rides his bike around the block pretending he is a super hero. I used to be like that as a child and I long to be like that today. A super hero of sorts who can solve world problems while cooking dinner and cleaning the house at the same time.

I knew I was “made to make a difference” and this book was going to help to show me how.

This book is separated into chapters. Each chapter gives you a life lesson to help you make the differences you so long to do. At the end of each chapter you will find a prayer. Not just any prayer but a prayer to set your heart right with God to fulfill your dreams. Also, you will find a scripture to go along with your prayer.

At the end of the book you will find discussion questions and an action plan separated out by chapter.

Such action plans are …

“Pray for five friends, relatives, or acquaintances whom you think may be far from God. (If you simply do not know whether God is most important in a person’s life, then he or she could be on this list.) For each five names, think of the next time you are likely to see that person. Make a personal commitment to pray daily for your “Five For God” list.”

The action plans are things that you can do today. You do not need extra funds. You just need a willing heart.

I love this book and highly recommend it for people like me who want to make a difference in this world.

Prepare your heart, give it to God, and see all the differences you can make.
