Chasing Famous: Living the Life You've Always Auditioned for by Lisa Lloyd + Giveaway

Chasing Famous
Chasing Famous (New Hope, April 2017)
Have you ever considered your life as an audition? 
Regardless of who or where we are, we are constantly, often unconsciously, auditioning for a part. Loving wife. Amazing employee. Crafting queen. Socialite. All we really want is to be loved, affirmed, and accepted. What if we could learn to live the life we have always been auditioning for without all the stress?
Chasing Famous is a redemptive book that teaches us how to take the focus off ourselves and shift it back on to the glory of God. Written by a professional actress who readily admits that she is the most self-centered person she knows, Chasing Famous provides practical and sometimes humorous examples of scriptural truth that will help you master the natural self-centered tendencies of life. Once you’ve mastered these issues, and you can, your story will turn the spotlight on God where, you’ll soon discover, what it means to truly live.
My Thoughts:
How do we make God famous? Who makes him famous after all? A question I've never really thought about and one that this author brings up. The answer lies within the question. Can we really make God famous? I think this answer lies within the person seeking to find out who they are, what brings him fame and how the world of theater attempts to make an individual fame, when we can bring glory to God. This book is beautiful in the way that it weaves  the theater world into the world of failure, truth, talent and fame. Ultimately, the author makes it clear, that in order to make His name great, we must trust Him and Him alone. The only way to find real purpose in life, is through Him and we must trust Him for everything. This book was a good read and I felt that I connected with the author. Overall, I give this book a 5/5 stars rating. A postiive review not required. Thank you to the publishers for providing a copy.
