Chasing Famous – Living the Life you’ve Always Auditioned For By: Lisa Lloyd
Reviewed by Richard R. Blake
Using the Stage as a Platform to Proclaim the Prominence God for His Glory
In her book “Chasing Famous – Living the Life you’ve Always Auditioned For,” Lisa shifts the focus from self-seeking affirmation to pointing people to God as the one to be honored. The theme of exchanging auditioning for approval from the crowds and seeking world renown challenges the reader to change the focus and to seek to proclaim the excellences of God.
Chapters are filled with Scripture truths and an invitation to:
- Embrace yourself as unique
- Find God’s unique purpose for you
- Break free of the bondage of shame and guilt
- Boldly step out to accomplish your mission of proclaiming the redemptive message of Christ.
Lisa’s writing is articulate, relevant, profoundly thought provoking, and rich in illustrative metaphor. Lisa is openly transparent; and shares an account of an incident from her life when she was young, vulnerable, and felt alone and trapped. She also tells of events in her career where God orchestrated unexpected blessing after a period of testing.
The ‘Questions to Consider’ feature at the end of each chapter can be easily adapted for use as a Reading Guide for book clubs or a discussion guide for small group Bible studies.
Destined to become a spokesperson for a new generation of Christian women, Lisa Lloyd is a successful actress and writer and is a popular speaker at women’s retreats, conferences, and other events, nationally. “Chasing Famous – Living the Life you’ve Always Auditioned For” is highly endorsed by her peers, and by well-known Christian leaders.
