“You Can Be Everything God Wants You to Be”—Book review

You Can Be...by Max LucadoUse your uniqueness (what you do) to make a big deal out of God (why you do it) every day of your life (where you do it).

If you’d like a personal cheerleader spurring you on in life, read this book.

Max Lucado has always had a gift for encouraging, but this tight little book packs it in extra measures. You can almost feel the hugs from God. 

You offer a gift to society that no one else brings. If you don't bring it, it won't be brought.

Typical Lucado, it’s full of meaningful scriptures and stories and snippets from either his own life or from people he’s met. So it’s an interesting, meaningful read.

And an easy one. Fast-paced and with short chapters, it’ll be over before you’re ready. 

See your desires as gifts to heed rather than longings to suppress, and you’ll feel the same joy.
…What have you always done well and loved to do?

Even though I’m a word person and am usually all about content, I did notice and enjoy how pretty this book is. It contains great visuals every 2 or 3 pages, and with ample use of white space in the layouts, you feel the space it opens up for you mentally as well as on the page.

Because it’s billed as “Perfect Gift for the Graduate,” I’ve got a recent grad in mind that I’ll give it to. My thanks to Thomas Nelson for sending me this copy; I’ll keep the gift moving. 

Success is not defined by position or pay scale but by this: doing the most what you do the best.

Max Lucado himself is a perfect example for this definition of success. He does what he does best in this little book. And all who read it will be blessed by it.
