I Am Second

I am Second is a movement meant to inspire people of all kinds to live for God and for others. Actors. Athletes. Musicians. Business leaders. Drug addicts. Your next-door neighbor. People like you. The authentic stories on provide insight into dealing with typical struggles of everyday living. These are stories that give hope to the lonely and the hurting, help from destructive lifestyles, and inspiration to the unfulfilled. You’ll discover people who’ve tried to go it alone and have failed. Find the hope, peace, and fulfillment they found. Be Second.

For years, I have been moved by the videos and stories that are posted. It has allowed me to look in someone's life and be a part of his/her testimony. And, it makes me think of my own testimony and ask if I am Second or am I First? Other times, I think, "I just can't do ____________ (whatever it is at the moment)" and the still small voice tells me "But God can" and I find others who have been on my journey.

I was very excited when I found out there is a daily devotional,
LiveSecond: 365 Ways to Make Jesus First being released on 12/9/12.

I have been fortunate to be part of a the launch team and I have been reading through the book. At the first of the year, I always start looking for a devotional for the year - this one is a keeper. Each day hits a certain area to focus on - you will read scripture, possibly watch a video and read how scripture relates to your focus area.  You will be asked questions to prompt you to reflect on how to be second.

You can pick up the book at any retailer and at,,, etc.

Thank you, I Am Second, for the opportunity to be part of the launch team and for providing much appreciated support and information. And, of course, for giving me a free book to review.
