Many of us stumbled into Jesus and discovered the one we'd been searching for all our lives, whether we knew it or not. He told us everything was going to be alright. He was a best friend who whispered that he loved us to the exact extent his father loved him. He saw everything we did yet refused to condemn us ever. He was an incredibly powerful and supernatural God who could actually change the outcome of our horror into beauty.
Then enter shame, time, failure, disappointment, and bad teaching. We learned to see him as disgusted that we haven't shaped up by now. We now have a hard time reading the words of Jesus without feeling he's telling us we're not enough and we should be better, after all he's done for us. And we pull back, not as easily daring to trust him with us, less willing to trust his plans, life and destiny for us.
What if that voice didn't exist for us? What if we could read his voice, hear his voice, without an artificial, religious filter? And what if we discovered he has been caring about us, speaking to us, wooing us, entering into our daily events, from the very start, long before we took even a hint of interest in him?
On My Worst Day allows us to listen to one person's journey to rediscovering that voice of Jesus. We are allowed to imagine what Jesus might be saying to us in our best and worst, our horrid disasters and funniest moments. We will cry, laugh, and find ourselves in every story. And we will walk away changed; drenched with hope, and the best friend we found at the start.

Giving away this book by the handful to those it may help!
Thanks for writing it John L!
Great listen, fast, adventure, tears and the real McCoy...how life is and being aware of your journey with God, even when you are unaware that He is right there all the time.
There was not one but many...to laugh to cry, it is worth it. The only thing i missed was all of the "stop and think points" i need then in writing
Johns humor and story telling
I have read or listen to all of the 3 Amigo writings
Thank you John for sharing your life stories and adventure with God
I listen to this boo in one sitting...well while driving...
If you have not listened to Bo's Cafe...get it
On My Worst Day is God's transformational truth of the good news of Grace spoken into the life of a master story teller. The format is autobiographical with meditations on the heart of God throughout the life of John Lynch. And it's read by John Lynch! Lynch is not only a master story-teller, but a humble, graceful, and beautiful narrator in this wonderful work. You can listen to it in one long setting and be blessed. You can take each story at the beginning or end of your day and be blessed. I meet with a group of men and we listen to one very short story, and discuss the truths after. John doesn't hold back the agony and beauty of his redeemed life.
This book is one of the most life-changing, grace-filled, and faith-igniting stories I have every read! If you feel alone in your faith, if you feel like God is far away, or if you just feel like you have failed Him too many times, this book is for you! John tells his own story of his life struggling to find, and then to please, a God who already adored him and pursued him since before the creation of the world. I could relate to him throughout his story, and I'm confident that most people will, as well. Do not miss this one!!
Three years ago at the age of 22, I gave my life to Christ while reading Truefaced. I was completely overwhelmed by the reality of God's unwavering love for me. I was amazed by his subtle intervention during my darkest days that brought about absolute joy in my life. For several years after I gave my life to Jesus, I enjoyed Him and knew that he enjoyed me. Slowly I started to forget - forget that God loves me and how sweet time with Him is. Listening to this audiobook has reminded me what can be. That I can go to work, hate the day, and that Jesus will be waiting for me with a joke to lighten the mood. That I can cry while He hugs me. That he is here. He is with me. He loves me and I love Him. Thank you, John Lynch!
I wouldn't because I'm already familiar with the concepts he's sharing. While I'm a fan of honest sharing I wasn't a huge fan of the writing style.
The most interesting parts were his childhood to late twenties because those offered the rawest and freshest perspectives. The least interesting parts were after his change of heart because the story became standard and somewhat repetitive.
Overall it was worth it.
Very honest writing about a man's lack of relationship and then growing relationship with God. My only quip was the writing which I felt was lacking after reading similar books from other author's and towards the end the anecdotes became somewhat random and less interesting. I do appreciate him sharing this story and did connect with the first half of his life.
