"A remarkable story where family, deep self-reflection, and an unshakable belief in a path predestined by God triumph over fortune and comfort."John Harbaugh, head coach of the Baltimore Ravens
NFL lineman Jason Brown had everything in the world. He was the highest-paid center in the game. He lived in luxury. Millions of people saw and admired him every week. Then in 2012, Jason heard a call from God that changed everything.
Leaving behind an incredibly successful football career that paid millions, Jason turned toward a life he knew nothing about: farming. It was only the beginning of his journey. Through third-party mismanagement and a run of bad luck, Jason lost most of the money hed saved from his NFL daysthe same money hed planned to use to start his new career and donate fresh produce to hungry kids. Only a miracle could save Jasons new dream.
And thats exactly what happened.
Centered is an inspiring riches-to-rags-to-true-riches story of one man willing to risk it all for the sake of his family. For the sake of loving others. For the sake of seeking Gods dreams firstand reminding each of us to do the same.
This riveting story of a top-earning NFL center and his family who walked away from it all to follow God's call to alleviate hunger as farmers--a life they knew absolutely nothing about--illustrates the sacrifice and ultimate reward of obedience to our heavenly Father even when it doesn't make earthly sense.
NFL lineman Jason Brown had everything he could ever want. He was the highest-paid center in the game, lived a life of luxury, and was cheered on by millions of people every week. Then, in 2012, Jason heard a call from God that changed everything. Jason turned his back on an incredibly successful career in football to pursue a new dream: ending hunger. But through third-party mismanagement and bad luck, Jason lost most of his savings from the NFL--the same money he'd planned to use to start his new career. He desperately needed the miracle that soon came.
Today, Jason and his family run First Fruits Farms in Louisburg, North Carolina, a state where one in four children don't know where their next meal will come from. Since 2014, the Browns have donated more than 1.6 million servings of fresh produce to their community. Their motto: Never stop giving. Never stop loving. Never stop growing.
With powerful and deeply personal insight, Centered is an inspiration to embrace the joy of following where God leads--no matter how crazy it sounds.
"Jason Browns inspiring journey is a powerful self-reflection of a life filled with pride, humility, and a series of twists and turns that ultimately drove him and his family to give it all up, only to gain it all back and more, through his dramatic decision to walk by faith and follow Gods confusing and, at times, questionable calling. "Chip Paillex, president and founder of Americas Grow-a-Row
"This story chronicles the sacrifices, trials, and ultimately the provision, protection, purpose, and blessings that Jason and Tay Brown found as they left wealth and riches to follow Gods call to serve in His kingdom. Their lives offer inspiration to everyone, and this book gives pause and a chance for self-reflection of ones own choices and priorities."John Mahshie, executive director of Veterans Healing Farm
"Jason tells a very personal storyfrom being bullied as a child in a racially segregated community to becoming the highest paid center in the NFL, then retiring at the height of his career to follow Gods calling for him. His joy and fulfillment from helping others, while overcoming his own despair when his farm was on the verge of bankruptcy, is motivating. This is an excellent read from an inspiring person."Bubba Cunningham, director of athletics at the University of North Carolina
"Jason Browns journey through faith and obedience is cut straight from the Old Testament. Examples of Job, Joseph, and Daniel all come to mind as Jason rises above worldly success and acts obediently to share Christ with the hurting."Edward Graham, Samaritans Purse
"Jason Browns story is a remarkable testament to living a life that exemplifies the true qualities most of us desire but too often fall short of attaining. At age twenty-seven, at the height of his NFL career filled with prestige, fame, and worldly fortune, he walked away from it all. Jasons rock-solid faith led him to farming and a new life, of abundance and blessings for his family and neighbors in need, well beyond anything he could have imagined."Joe Lampl, Emmy Awardwinning creator and executive producer of Growing a Greener World and founder of Joe Gardener
