Editorial Reviews


"A very positive, encouraging book that gives insight into how the author survived the grueling training to become a Navy SEAL and the mental approach and underlying beliefs everyone needs in order to reach their goal. The training was clearly more brutal than would be expected today, but for those who survived it and became SEALs, it is a badge of honor.  It wouldn't normally be my choice of book, but it draws you in to see links between being a SEAL and a Christian, a new perspective on how he uses his faith throughout his life. Some great little anecdotes such as the reference to "stop bleeding on the deck and get back in the pool" and the reference to avoiding sappers - those who sap your energy.  I loved the story of how he met his wife but was very sad as he shared memories of the death of his son. This is a powerful story that will resonate with many readers, whatever their religious beliefs."

"There is not another person who has been through the fire quite like Larry. He really has been through just about everything . . . from BUDS/Navy Seal training to business to cancer. It really is quite the epic story." --
B. Bufton, Publisher,"It was a great read . . .tremendously inspirational! I became misty-eyed more than once while reading it."--SEAL Team Commander A. Davis

"God has given Larry a great reservoir of gentle strength and quiet fortitude that equipped him with the ability to not only exceed his own expectations but to inspire and encourage other trainees like me to succeed." --
G. Cortise, SEAL, BUD/S Class 89

"I witnessed this man who would rather drown trying than give up his dream of becoming a SEAL. Somehow, someway, he made it through that night. It became an inspiration for me and others who witnessed his fortitude and perseverance. Frankly, I thought he would surely quit or drown. Larry became a shining example of never giving up on your dream."
S. Rawding, SEAL, BUD/S Class 89

From the Author

Living life today is never easy.  In fact, it's like walking a razor-thin tightrope dangling over the Grand Canyon.  Betteryet, blindly walking through a maze of dark trap doors all leading to a daringmile deep free fall into anxiety, fear, misery, and even death.  Of course, many claims that they havesolutions that tear away the blinders and rescue you from such a freefall.  But are they true?
Every day at Basic Underwater Demolition SEAL training (BUD/S)with every evolution is a dangling masterful trap door.  Graduating BUD/S Class 89 taught me thatthere's never a single breath that should be taken for granted.  I hope
DareTo Live Greatly will take you on a journey of experiencing the pains andtrauma and its benefits of learning what it's like surviving not only BUD/S butlife itself.
No matter your burdens, conflict with family or friends,loss of a job, or how dire life can be, there's
always hope with a bursting light awaiting.  Circumstances are not nearly as important aswhat you do with them.
Running the race to win means seeing life through God'slenses and embracing fear as a blessing and failure as a launching pad.  Learn to meet storms as a day filled withsunshine and embrace defeat as an opportunity.
Thank you for the opportunity to share my story of God's infinitegrace.  With such grace, there are noproblems in life, only opportunities. Adversity truly introduces a man tohimself. 
Be flooded with light as you're wired to be. Thrive joyfullyalways. Live boldly without fear. 
Dare to live bigger than self.

Award-winning author L.C. (Larry) Fowler was born and raised in the southern United States. He gave up college to follow his dream of attending Basic Underwater Demolition SEAL (BUD/S) training and become a famed member of the Navy Special Warfare community. The only problem was, someone forgot to tell him you had to be able to swim.

Despite that seemingly insurmountable issue, Larry went on to successfully graduate from BUD/S Class 89 and was selected by his peers at Navy basic training as their “Honor Man.” Since then he has launched more than a hundred websites and built two software and marketing companies from scratch.

Following the death of his third son, Chris, Larry made the decision to write Dare to Live Greatly: The Courage To Live A Powerful Christian Life. Larry understood then that surviving as a powerful Christian in today’s world requires courage, grit, and unnerving perseverance.

Larry was an invited guest at the White House and has trained with Christian personnel across the globe, including Pakistan, Indonesia, China, and other countries at all organizational levels.

Even while living with Lymphoma cancer and recently diagnosed with Parsonage-Turner syndrome, he has learned to live each day to the max.

Larry welcomes comments at He is genuinely grateful for all book reviews.

Dare To Live Greatly Revised & Updated edition will be released March 2, 2022. More info at
