A Life Beyond Amazing
A Study of the Fruit of the Spirit
At two o’clock on Sunday afternoon, January 8, 2017, a giant fell to the earth, causing the ground to tremble like a palsied hand. One of the best-known giant sequoias, the Pioneer Cabin Tree, collapsed amid California storms. Pioneer Cabin, so named because its hollowed interior was big enough for a home, had pointed upward a thousand years. She was majestic to behold. But her core was gone, her limbs were brittle, her roots were shallow, and only a few branches still clung to life. When lashed by wind and water, the big tree tottered and tumbled and shattered on impact. Her millennium was over.
Many of us are also teetering and tottering, never knowing when the next storm will come. We want to be rooted and solid—a testimony to our Creator. But often we feel hollow, shallow rooted, with no strong core.
What if I told you that you can change all this, that you can weather the storms of life with an inner strength and confidence you’ve imagined but never felt? What if I told you that you can experience the kind of joy that will change the world around you, and the kind of peace that brings serenity and calmness sweeter than any you’ve known?
And what if I told you the cost for achieving all of this is free, available to all, and that this special offer will never expire?
In this book I share with you how to achieve all that I have described and more. In these pages I show you the path to a life beyond amazing.
No matter who you are, how old, how rich or poor, how tired, disappointed, lonely, or hopeless—you can follow this path. No matter what difficulty and pain life has dealt you, or what riches and opportunities you feel it hasn’t, this path is for you.
This book is about character. It’s about how we develop the character that Christ wants for us, that God makes us capable of achieving, and that the Holy Spirit is always, always ready to guide us to. I want to help you develop character qualities beyond the norm. I want to show you how to build a life beyond amazing, and, in so doing, make an impact beyond imagination.
