"If an honest and capable portrait painter depicted you, what would the world see? Integrity, courage, and conviction? Or dishonesty, fear, and doubt?"

Dr. Charles Stanley asks this question as he encourages us to probe the depths of our hearts and to take stock of who we really are. Many people are content to live below their real potential and to settle for less than God intends?just the status quo. He wants us to live victorious lives.

In Living the Extraordinary Life, Dr. Stanley gives us time-tested truths that God reveals through Scripture?nine simple but effective life principles that can help us live truly triumphant lives. Learn how:

  • surrendering your life to God leads to peace, contentment, and joy
  • obedience always brings blessing
  • only by patience can we know God's will
  • we can win out battles if we fight them on our knees

Whether we are longtime Christians struggling with the temptations and stresses of today's world, or new believers reaching out for the first time to Christ to transform our lives, this book can point us to the secrets for living happier, more meaningful  lives.

"Becoming the masterpiece God created you to be is a lifelong process in which He is continually shaping you into a unique reflection of His Son," Dr. Stanley says. "It is my prayer that you will embrace each one of these principles fully, and in doing so, discover the extraordinary life God has planned for you."
