I am Second . . . a Review . . . A Reflection

One of my New Year's Resolution is to try to live a more faith-driven life. We are a fairly faithful family, but I do not often consider God's will. The phrase, "Let Go and Let God" is something I want to live more by in the new year.

I feel this book, "Live Second" came into my life so that I can reach that goal. The book gives 365 ways (perfect for each day of the year) to be closer to God. The idea is that you become second to Jesus.

I LOVE that they include Bible readings in the book as a part of the journey to live second. There is also a hashtag you can use, and the book instructs you on how to tweet about the different journeys (with the general hashtag being #IAS). I like that a community has been built to discuss and help me along my journey.

Although the tips may be things we know or already think about, the book serves as a daily reminder and give daily tasks you can complete to put Jesus first. I strongly recommend (as does the book) that you find other people to start your journey with you, so that you are able to discuss the book as you read it.

Each reading is short, to the point, but filled with wonderful affirmations and guidance.
From reading reviews of the book, I feel it is important to add that I have not read any previous I am Second books or materials, and this is my first point of contact with the "movement."
