Stepping out of the ordinary and living an uncommon life

UncommonGod’s Word provides many examples of women who chose to step out of the ordinary and live extraordinary, uncommon lives even when it meant making tough decisions and living in the midst of trying circumstances.  Women like Esther, Hannah, Huldah, Noah’s wife and others lived lives of uncommon faith, prayer, courage, gratitude.  These are the role models we should follow and pass their examples on to our daughters.

It’s hard to live an uncommon life, but Carey Scott, author of “Un-Common”, provides personal examples and biblical models of how we can do it because it has been done in the past.  If we want to make a difference for the Kingdom of God, we need to start living uncommon lives.  Yes, it’s hard, but God didn’t say our lives on earth would be easy.

Scott’s personality and wisdom is woven throughout “Un-Common”.  Her insight into the lives of the biblical examples she gives is inspiring.  I enjoyed reading about women I’ve read about in the Bible all my life especially those who are sometimes skimmed over because they seemed to just move the story along.  But none of these women did just that.  Just like we have a purpose, so did ALL of the women who came before us.  Thank you, Carey, for helping us visualize our purpose through the lives of those who have walked the tough roads ahead of us.
