"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
"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, Church.org
"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
"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."- Nonfiction Authors Association Book Awards Program

Read it, live it and gift it! No superlatives just how it was and how it is. Larry Fowler spells out what it takes to succeed as an individual and as a team throughout multiple phases of life and its inevitable challenges.
You'll be entertained by the stories (you’ll laugh and wince), as well as, be enriched by his wisdom. If you take it to heart, I’m certain your life will be enhanced in numerous ways. I’m also certain that futures readers will echo my praises for “Dare to Live Greatly” for many years to come.
One of my favorite lines from the book, " confidence is also learned, not a gift". The author connected his stories of joy and suffering, to his faith.
Read this book if you want to have a stronger mindset and power in your faith.
The content far exceeds and overcomes the annoyance. This is a super correlation between Navy SEAL training and living the Christian Life. Living Christian is hard and those who do it well do it well because they want to please God and be obedient to Christ. God gives us the ultimate training, and that is on the job training that we get in a nasty, dark world. Fowler gives you an amazing, clear vision of how to tackle living Christian.
The content is very good, very uplifting and encouraging. He not only tackles common challenges and opportunities that Christians face daily, but he also shows how to overcome them and capitalize on them. That is often times rare in these types of books. The examples are excellent, the quotes are very apropos, and the SEAL steps for dealing with anything in life are way beyond good. I can definitely tell that God was the guiding hand in this endeavor. A joy to read, study, hide in my heart. Fowler's biblical knowledge is a pleasure to read because the insight is clearly Holy Spirit led and God taught, not man-taught. Another rare thing in this type of book.
The rat sandwich and the Tijuana sludge bath were a bit hard to take. I have an excellent, overcharged imagination and I could taste that spoiled rat, and I could smell and feel that sludge. That is excellent writing. However, it is also stomach churning. My professional self is applauding and saying great job, but my personal self was gagging. It was a bit hard for me to stay focused, especially when he mentioned them while making another point or two in the narrative. I definitely appreciated the descriptions of events and places... I could feel the cold and the heat, and generally used most of my senses while reading. Excellent.
Fowler made living the Christian life come alive with purpose. This is a keeper.
