Life is made of moments. What are you doing to make the most of them? In Moment Maker, Carlos Whittaker shows you how to make each moment count, so those moments add up to a life rich with meaning, deeply satisfying, and full of purpose.

Every day we have an opportunity to make our lives meaningful, to make them matter. Yet, for so many of us, we let too much of life happen without taking notice.

For author, speaker, and podcaster Carlos Whittaker, living deliberately has become a way of life. Making moments that are significant, memorable, or impactful are a part of how he navigates each day, and it has forever changed the landscape of his story.

In Moment Maker, Carlos shares powerful stories and examples from ordinary life, as well as insights from Scripture, that have formed his practical and meaningful game plan for living on purpose and with purpose. In these pages, he will guide you to:

  • Increase awareness of your surroundings, the people you encounter, and the needs of others
  • Recognize opportunities that present themselves and be encouraged to seize them
  • Discover how to create, receive, and rescue key moments in everyday life
  • And, ultimately, unlock the satisfaction of living to the full depth of your life's potential

The beauty of having a moment-making life is that it does not require a big investment in time, energy, or money. It simply requires a commitment to pay attention. All around you there are opportunities to meet a need, shift your focus, and begin healing. It is time to become a Moment Maker.
