Recognize who you are, claim the capabilities you already have, and learn to stand up to the challenges that sometimes overwhelm you—even when you yourself are the challenge!
Our most important battles are not always with the “giants out there”—those external challenges which we all face. The greatest battles are sometimes within ourselves. Too often, we diminish our own potential in ministry, business, and in life. Learn to battle the giants in your life, in a series of lessons based on the story of David and Goliath. Includes a personal training manual to help you practice what you’ve learned. Shane Stanford and R. Brad Martin frame their powerful book on one of the most well-known and well-loved stories in history: David and Goliath. We all feel like the seemingly powerless, scrawny boy David sometimes. And we all must face “giants”—those challenges that threaten to overwhelm us in ministry, work-life, and in our personal lives. Five Stones is a series of clear and compelling lessons. Each lesson arms the reader with practical and powerful tools of self-discovery, so that the reader’s own liabilities, opportunities, convictions, and capabilities are revealed. Like modern-day Davids, readers will leave this book empowered to conquer challenges, in ministry and in life, with clear-eyed confidence and well-grounded hope.
