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.

Surprise

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.

Uplifting

I laughed(out loud) I cried( like a baby ) in my car while listening. so if you saw me while I was driving I'm ok. I loved listening to his life and how everything comes together ❤️ thank you for writing this book Michael Jr! I'm incredibly sad from losing both my parents this year and this was just what I needed to hear to know there is hope and good days ahead.

Michael Jr. knocked it way out of the park with this book! I've had the pleasure and privilege to see Michael Jr. before, so I know of his incredible heart for using his gifts & talents to help others. This book does an amazing job of sharing Michael Jr.'s incredible journey in a way that is inspiring and motivating, and one that encourages all of us to focus on living a life committed to using our gifts to serve others.
