When you were young, did you dream of being ordinary—of living an average life? Of course not. You didn’t settle for ordinary or average then . . . refuse to do so now. You were born to be extraordinary.
In Living Beyond Ordinary: Discovering Authentic Significance and Purpose, leadership and nonprofit management expert, pastor, and speaker Scott George unpacks in inspiring detail the principles and practices of those who live beyond ordinary lives. “This generation is hungry for significance and real purpose. This timely message will resonate with people of all ages who desire to live out their purpose in life.”
Energized by a compelling combination of the enthralling story and vision behind Orlando’s Community Food and Outreach Center (CFOC), and heartwarming, inspiring, real-life accounts of those given a hand up through the center, these pages will embolden and equip readers to live out their dreams, achieve success in life, and find joy. “Readers will be inspired and motivated to make their life count by giving it away in serving others,” writes George.
