More Than

Discovering How Your Story Reveals God's Beautiful Truth About You

by Garrett Nudd

Most people consider themselves to be less than, but God says you are meant for so much more—more than you could ever imagine. With a thoughtful blend of poignancy and humor, Garrett weaves stories together from his own life and the Bible to illustrate how God shows up and shows off—oftentimes in the most ordinary every-day experiences—to prove that we are More Than. Garrett uses his own life experiences as a father, husband, professional photographer, healthcare worker, community builder, and general observer of life to challenge readers to identify their own More Than experiences and pass their legacy on to others.
Most people view themselves as less than—less than they are, less than others see them, and less than God designed them to be. Countless times in our own lives and throughout the Bible, God shows us that we are More Than. Garrett shows readers how to notice instances in their own lives when God reveals that they are More Than. He challenges readers with the ideology that when God gives us More Than, he expects us to share it with others so they can experience More Than too. From the author: "More Than" is for parents because parenting is the hardest job in the world. I can't tell you how many times I've felt unworthy to be a parent and unworthy to raise children. "More Than" is for teens because being a teenager today is filled with so many challenges and pressures. I want you to know how much you are loved and valued. "More Than" is for creatives. I'm a creative and in the deepest depths of my soul, I have this passion to create and a constant desire for the approval of others. "More Than" is for people who feel stuck in their job. You spend so much time at work, and many people feel stuck in their job punching a clock and collecting a paycheck. It's easy to feel like there's more to life. There is! "More Than" is for people who feel like they aren't worthy. I don't know your story—maybe it's a failed marriage, a lost job, trauma from your parents or someone, a series of bad decisions, a challenging financial situation, or a betrayal from someone you thought was a friend. You are more than. You are worthy. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. You are bought with a price. My encouragement to you is to set aside intentional time each day to reflect on your own story and look at how God has shown up and shown off in your life. Write, journal, make notes, and channel those discoveries to help shape your perspective from a mindset of less than to a mindset of more than. After completing this book, you will: • Recognize God's promise for More Than in your life. • Have the tools to overcome long-standing feelings of less than. • Be inspired to look for your own More Than experiences and share them with others. • Become intentional about embracing the concept of More Than and engaging in its impact in your life.
