Publisher's Summary

Your greatest regret at the end of your life will be the lions you didn't chase. You will look back longingly on risks not taken, opportunities not seized, and dreams not pursued. Stop running away from what scares you most and start chasing the God-ordained opportunities that cross your path.

In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day is inspired by one of the most obscure yet courageous acts recorded in Scripture, a blessed and audacious act that left no regrets: "Benaiah chased a lion down into a pit. Then, despite the snow and slippery ground, he caught the lion and killed it" (2 Samuel 23:20 -21). Unleash the lion chaser within!

    "Game Changer"

    This book is a great book if you think balance is over rated. It has given me the faith to do things that I would have blown off as extreme. To give an encouraging word to someone I don't know. It's a great book for comfortable people who are tried of being comfortable.

    "Mind Blowing. Insightful"

    I am pursuing my dream and it has been a very scary yet rewarding venture. Besides my husband, I don't have a lot of people around me who have broken out and taken risks, so at my lowest moments of insecurity and anxiety, I have cried out to God to send me a teacher to encourage me. Then one day, I stumble on this book and it literally speaks to my soul and puts a lot in perspective for me. Will read over

    "Compelling and Challenging"

    Loved the challenge to Christian to be bold and not only face their lions but chase them. Are you a lion chaser?

    "LOVED this book!!!"

    Oh my goodness!! This book is AMAZING! It gave me, what I like to call, Holy Spirit chills multiple times. I LOVE hearing how God has worked miracles in people's lives - past and present day. It was a great reminder to not just use my God-given gifts and abilities, but to not wait until the timing is "just right". When the Holy Spirit speaks, listen and act.

    "Wow - game changer!"

    Take a moment and pray for what God is about to reveal to you in this "little" book.

    The mind switch in how we look at our challenges and our willingness to embrace what is messy as an opportunity to glorify God is presented in a manner of hope.

    I will never look at a challenge in the same way.
