be UNCOMMON book launch

Excited to be part of Carey Scott's book launch team for her new book releasing soon!! This is a book for us women, whom desire to grow strong in our faith and to be Uncommon: Pursuing a Life of Passion and Purpose. As I read through this book, Jesus's Words kept coming to mind, that as Christians we are called to to be lights in this world and Jesus said in Matthew 5:16 "let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven" and I also like these powerful words Jesus said in John 17 14 I have given them your word, and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 15 I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one. 16 They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. 18 As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. I certainly want to live by those words, but yet it is a struggle at times in this world to be a light and be who we are called to be.

It can be a struggle in this world to be a Christian to a world that seems full of hate and/or selfish, but when you are in the Word and growing a relationship with our Father God, you will see His beauty and the need to share His message. That is what this book shares. Carey tackles issues us women deal with today, using scripture and biblical stories of women from the Bible. At the end of each chapter is scrirpture to focus on and memorize, questions to study with and prayer. May we be strong in our faith to not be common like the world but uncommon because that is what we as Christians are called to be in this world, salt-seasoning. As Carey stated in her book, "72% of Americans believe our morals are in decline." She states..."The Bible is very clear about how we are to live and how we are not...the Bible is an all-inclusive blueprint for how to do life." These words stir my soul... "When you become a believer you choose to exchange these ways/worlds way for HIS ways. God doesn't expect us to do it perfectly, but HE is hoping you do it purposefully. God's spirit is the one who calls us to live better and gives us the ability to do so." I so believe that! I want to be uncommon! "HE wants us to be different in how we run our families, ministries, community groups, and companies." "Truth is as Jesus followers we won't always make sense to the world. We weren't designed to fit in here. Instead we were designed to shine Jesus into the world. Our job is to listen to what God wants us to do, even if it's not what the world thinks we should do." No wonder I feel like a black-sheep some days and maybe you do too? So if we’re going to be women with uncommon wisdom, we have to ask God for it. Because He is the only source of it.
“As an uncommon woman, you will find yourself:
1. relying on God above all else
2. full of hope in the hard places
3. standing up for what’s right
4. holding on to joy no matter what
5. able to step out of your comfort zone
6. willing to risk your reputation
7. resolved to not give up or give in
8. untangled from your past failures, fears and insecurities
9. capable of looking past your circumstances
10. understanding there is a calling on your life
11. trusting the plan and ways of God.”
