"Wrecked" by Jeff Goins Releases August 1st...

I have been given the pleasure of reading a preview copy of Jeff Goins new book, "Wrecked." The book will release on August 1st. Just mere days from today. 

Wrecked by Jeff Goins

Jeff Goins has one of the few blogs that I read each and every day. I have done his Writing Challenge and am currently participating in his 12 week blogging course. His work challenges me to grow. His soon to be released book, "Wrecked" is proving to give the same results of challenging me to grow. Jeff's writing is easy to read and engaging. On August 1st, when you can get extra goodies go and buy this book. 

Here is a little about the book:

Goins defines wrecked as, "having a transformation that goes beyond mere word---to be introduced to another way of life, to follow in the footsteps of a teacher who is calling you through the eye of a needle." Those who are familiar with Scripture will know Goins is referring to Jesus. 

Through examples of other people's lives, Goins not only defines wrecked through this timely book; he further gives examples from his own life and others of what being wrecked looks like. 

As I mentioned above, time and preparations for the She Speaks conference and my own writing have kept me from my goal of finishing "Wrecked." However, I am excited to continue the journey of "Wrecked." 

The "Wrecked" website says it best:

Wrecked is a book about the life we’re afraid to live—one full of radical sacrifice and selfless service. It’s a look at how we discover fulfillment in the least likely of places.
This is a guide to growing up and learning to live in the tension between the next adventure and our daily commitments.

We all need to be wrecked, to allow the pain of a broken world to slam into our comfortable lives—and let it change us. But that’s just the beginning.
Wrecked is a journey of unbecoming, covering the stories of people whose lives have been turned upside-down in the best way possible—and what they decided to do afterwards.
Jeff Goins leads the charge, sharing the experiences of missionaries, storytellers, and entrepreneurs whose lives have been beautifully ruined by a larger purpose.
Will you be brave enough to join them?
