This entire book was awesome a blessing, motivation, and great inspiration to my life. I never thought anyone understood me until I read this book. It’s given me peace with myself by letting me know that I can do big things and that I’m going in the right direction. I believe that this is a great book because Steve is sincere and best of all he has God who directs him.
