Our deepest longing as human beings is for significance. Author and Bible scholar Ken Castor serves as an expert guide into a life of significance.
We’re surrounded by a generation of emerging young leaders who are tired of watching, waiting for permission, and wondering when they will be called on to make a difference in this world for Jesus. Ken Castor understands their cry and provides a clear formula for daily empowerment and mobilization.
Ken continues to caringly but honestly encourage and drive people to grow deeper into what it means to follow Jesus. Make a Difference is another fantastic resource for anyone who desires a daily push to learn, grow, and live out their faith in a new way.
Too often our lives become so cluttered with selfish pursuits that we miss the opportunities right in front of our eyes to help people and change the world around us. In Make a Difference, Ken Castor reminds us every day what is good and what priority we ought to set first: to act justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with our God. – Joshua Becker, Wall Street Journal Best-selling author, Founder of Becoming Minimalist (becomingminimalist.com) and The Hope Effect (hopeeffect.com)
