Overview

What happens when idealism and reality crash into each other . . . and you?

If you have ever passionately invested yourself in living your faith, championing a cause, or representing some noble ideal, you have probably experienced a face-off between idealism and reality.

When we're trying to change the world, we meet tension almost daily-between dreams and disappointment, wholeness and dysfunction, past and future. This can lead to disillusionment, frustration, and exhaustion. It brings the temptation to abandon the dreams we were chasing after, to give up on ourselves and the world.

Don't give in! This book is your survival guide. You can champion your cause and your faith, even in a broken world. Stay in the race and take this guide along as a source of fuel, rest, and encouragement along the way.

Change is hard. Keep going. Read this book and you will be encouraged to pursue and balance your dream of changing the world. We all need this.
Jeff Shinabarger, author of More or Less, founder of Plywood People

Cunningham agains reminds me that I am not a rock star and neither are you. What a relief! Rather, we are more than enough. Together we are God's hands and feet placed exactly where He wants us for His purposes in our generation. Would-be world changers get a fresh idea of what this looks like in an ordinary yet intentional life.
Shayne Moore, activist, author of Refuse to Do Nothing and Global Soccer Mom

No one believes in your potential to change the world more than Sarah Cunningham. She's one of the most faith-filled and compassionate thought-leaders to come along in years. Yet her insights are grounded and her ideas will disrupt your long-standing beliefs. This is a must-read for anyone who dares to dream.
Ben Arment, creator of STORY and Dream Year
