My rating: 5 of 5 stars
“Life can be frantic, fleeting and full of challenges. It can also be a wonderful discovery, packed with adventure. Whatever your experience, there’s no doubt that it doesn’t come equipped with a step-by-step manual or an instant answer to each daily question. That’s where this book comes in. Having faced some of life’s most daunting issues at an early age, Dave Bell reflects on his path so far and shares some practical insights that will help you plot your own course as you navigate your own uncharged territory. Focusing on the simple truth of God’s word. This real, honest life-story invites us to take a deep breath, look ahead and begin to live every day to the full.”
This book is an amazing story of a life. Specifically the life of Dave Bell… who at a young age was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cancer. This book chronicles the story of that journey as the author reflects on it ten years later.
From receiving the unthinkable diagnosis, through the surgery, to facing the facts about his future – if there is to be one – all the way through amazing miracles to where he is today, this story truly blessed me over and over.
In addition, we also receive the Life Out Loud Guide at the end of each chapter that encourages the read to: Think, Read, Pray and Live Out Loud and encourages the reader to make the most of the rest of their life and work thorough this book to turn up the volume of your life.
I especially enjoyed the manner in which Mr. Bell interacts with the reader. He has an easy style in his writing… at times, it is raw and honest… at other times… it is funny to the point that I am giggling. To be able to tackle such a difficult subject and yet to be able to bless the reader at the same time is a real gift that Mr. Bell possesses. Thank you for sharing your story with us… we are the better for receiving it.
