Here are five things I personally loved about this book.
1. It is written by an actor who uses acting terminology. Each chapter is titled using a phrase from the industry. Isn’t that clever. For example: “The Aside”, “The Stage Mom”, “Love Scene”
2. It is loaded with truths from God’s word. The author quotes her mom’s sage advice to heed the wisdom of the Bible before making any major decisions. Then when doubt or questions surface you can always return to God’s word which does not change. This gives her words authority. The amount of scripture referenced is insanely awesome.
3. It’s relatable. Every chapter shares a story about her life and how God uses her experiences to make Him famous. I’m not a performer by any means but I can relate to her down to earth examples and see how I too, can mirror God in my life.
4. I want to make him famous. The book did it’s job. I would describe myself as an introvert with extroverted dreams. I typically thrive in one on one conversations. Stick a microphone in my hand and if I’m passionate enough about my topic, I can hold my own but it’s not really a natural setting for me. There’s a meme that says something along the lines of. Me in writing: Pulitzer worthy. Me in person: lacking in social skills. And yet…I dream of big things. Published works, book tours, paid to do this thing I love so much: writing. And maybe one day these dreams will be a reality. I’ll be exhausted. Because…introvert. Regardless of the largeness or more realistic smallness of my reader audience, I am called to chase God’s fame. To proclaim the goodness of Him. My eyes welled up with tears more than once as I faced the mirror and found myself center stage and God the supporting role.
While Lisa uses clever acting terms to grab attention, you don't need to be an actor in order to relate. My copy is saturated in highlighter so clearly I related to her vulnerable and personal writing style.
This book is a "must read" for anyone who struggles with identity and purpose, for anyone who thinks their sin is too great for God to forgive, and for anyone who needs encouragement to pursue Him with passion.
