We all want to matter
Deep inside each of us is a longing, a yearning--for greatness. We want to know the world is different because we have lived. We want to make our mark. We want to be remembered for something beyond average, something great.
But how do we get there?
In this practical and inspiring book, Nelson Searcy encourages you to take the next step on your journey toward a full, abundant life. As Searcy explains, if you're not serving, you're not growing. He provides the tools you need to get connected--to others, to God, and to your greater purpose--through service.
