Overview

Everyone wants their life to count. We all wish we could make a difference in a hurting world. The good news is that we can. Despite our own brokenness (and, in fact, because of it) each of us can be Jesus's hands and feet on Earth, reaching out to others in real and profound ways.

With powerful true stories, illustrations from the life of Christ, and specific activities for readers to engage, DO Something! is a hopeful and practical book that shows how to live out faith in a way that improves people's lives. With transparency and humility, Miles McPherson shares his own shortcomings as a young pastor trying to connect with people in need. Stressing the importance of hurting with people before you can do something for them, McPherson takes readers through the 5 P's of making their lives count: preparation, purpose, pain, power, and passion. By putting into practice the principles found in this book, readers will experience spiritual fulfillment as they see that they can make a real difference in the lives of those around them.

Meet the Author

Miles McPherson is senior pastor of the Rock Church in San Diego, one of the fastest growing churches in the country, and president of Miles Ahead Ministries. In 1982 McPherson was the first student from the University of New Haven to be named All American and be drafted into the NFL. But two years into his pro career with the San Diego Chargers, McPherson was battling a drug problem and living an immoral lifestyle. In a dramatic turn McPherson gave his life to Christ on April 12, 1984, and stopped using drugs instantly. He has appeared on many national television shows, including Larry King Live, Good Morning America, The O'Reilly Factor, and Fox & Friends. He and his wife have three children and live in San Diego, California.
Miles McPherson is a former All-American and NFL football player and founder of Miles Ahead Ministries, through which more than 45,000 young people have given their lives to Christ. He is also the founder of Rock Church in San Diego, a predominantly young, urban congregation that has grown to an average of 12,000 with more than 60 volunteer-led community ministries. McPherson has appeared on Larry King Live, Good Morning America, The O'Reilly Factor, and Fox & Friends. He and his wife have three children and live in San Diego, California.

    Great Book! Great Message!

    If you are going to buy this book, I suggest that you buy two. This isn't one of those books that you read and then pass along to your mother or your best friend. You will want to read this book again and again. It is the type of book that reminds you that you can do one of two things, either you can live life or you can let life live you but you can't do both.

    I also recommend "When God Stopped Keeping Score," which you will think is just about forgiveness, but has proven to be so much more. From the story of the mother and the daughter to the story of Donna, you will be pleasantly surprise by what the author is willing to teach you. That too is one of those books you really should buy two of. You will want to talk about it with someone that you love.
