Product Description

Kay Warren had a plan. Together with her husband Rick Warren, author of the megaseller The Purpose Driven Life, she planned that after her kids were grown, she'd travel the world, teaching and encouraging couples in ministry. It was a good plan. But it wasn't what God had in mind for her.

Say Yes to God--formerly titled Dangerous Surrender--takes readers alongside Kay as she travels the globe and takes a closer look at her own community, coming face to face with the bruised, broken and hurting. Just as Kay is compelled to shrug off her complacency about the suffering in this world, she compels readers to recognize and answer God's call to serve. Kay's message reveals the beauty--and heartache--of a surrendered life, and demonstrates the astounding rewards of such surrender. Her example will challenge, inspire and equip readers to experience the same. They will discover an intimacy with their Father experienced only by those who lay down their lives on behalf of the things that move his heart, those who are willing to "say yes to God."

Publisher's Description

You have a plan for the rest of your life. God has a plan for the rest of your life. Are they the same? Say Yes to God—formerly titled Dangerous Surrender—will help you find the answer. You have expectations for how your life will play out, and you hope those plans will become realities. But what if God’s plan for your life is far different from what you had in mind? Can you accept that? Will you surrender your goals for God’s? Kay Warren had a plan. Together with her husband, Rick Warren, author of the megaseller The Purpose Driven Life, she planned that after her kids were grown, she’d travel the world, teaching and encouraging couples in ministry. It was a good plan. But it wasn’t what God had in mind for her. In her own startling wake-up call, Kay discovered the shocking realities of the AIDS pandemic in Africa while reading a magazine. “I want to use you!” she heard God say. That began the struggle—first to avoid God’s call and then to surrender herself to God. She cried out to God, “Why are you bothering me with this? There’s nothing I can do about it. I’m just an ordinary person. What could one person do about such a gigantic problem?” But God had grabbed her attention and wouldn’t let go. If you’ve ever struggled with knowing and doing God’s will, this book is for you. With raw honesty, Kay goes straight to the heart of the matter: the bottom line is surrender. Will you say yes to God? Along the way she’ll introduce you to others—people like you—who have said yes to God and have made a difference in the world. Using their skills, energy, faith, and a willingness to take risks, they became powerful instruments of change and tools in God’s hands. Giving in to God isn’t easy. It’s not for cowards. It’s the boldest, riskiest step you’ll ever take. This dangerous surrender can bring both joy and pain, both heartache and ecstasy, but it enables you to know God in a far deeper way than ever before. “I had to make a conscious decision. Would I retreat to my comfortable life and to my settled plans? Or would I surrender to God’s call and let my heart engage with the cause to which he called me, one that I was pretty sure would include buckets of pain and sorrow? I felt like I was standing on the edge of a giant precipice; I couldn’t go back, and yet the way forward looked like stepping into a void.” Kay Warren took that step, choosing to say yes to God. That decision transformed her life and reshaped her future. She invites you to do the same. You’ll benefit most by discussing this book with others. A Readers’ Group Discussion Guide is provided in the back of the book. Additional help can be found at www.kaywarren.com.

    This is one of the best books I've read to challenge us to become the hands and feet of Jesus...to desire more than just to be blessed in and of ourselves, and how to get from 'here' to 'there'.
