This book was not what I thought it would be, it was much better. I was looking for a few laughs and instead got some great lessons and motivation. Thanks Michael for sharing some great stories that we can all learn from.

A great listen!

I found this title while looking through the Audible clearance list. I recognized the author from his part in "War Room". This was a very encouraging and uplifting book...not just comedy! Very enjoyable for a road trip!

Love it! Love it! Love it!

I immediately purchased this book once I heard of the release.
This book is inspiring, funny, entertaining but above all, empowering. I am inspired and empowered to allow the gifts I was given to be used by God in serving people.
Thank you, Michael for obeying God and allowing Him to use you to be a blessing to your generation and beyond.
You are a comedian with a difference.
