Publisher's Description

Ask anyone: “Is there something about your life that you would like to change?” and the answer will most likely be a resounding “YES!” Change is something most of us want but few of us practically achieve.

In Life Change, rising voice Jordan Easley takes a spiritual approach to the topic, walking readers through the book of Mark to highlight stories of life change in the Bible. Looking at seven miracles Jesus performed throughout that text and the people who were changed by them, Jordan shows how the power of God enables us to do what we are incapable of doing ourselves.

It may feel like the odds are stacked against us, but the good news is that change is possible, and it happens when we live out this three-step process:
A NEW HOPE: Establish an authentic relationship that inspires and sustains hope in your life.
A NEW WAY OF THINKING: As a result of that relationship, you have a new way of thinking.
A NEW WAY OF LIVING: As a result of your new way of thinking, you have a new way of living.

“In a world saturated with self-help books and drowning in a sea of secular humanism comes an essential read for those in need of change. In Life Change, my friend Jordan Easley takes us on a journey through the gospel of Mark, where we interact with characters desperate for transformation. Like all great teachers, Jordan uses the Bible to illuminate our need and also provide clarity to the answer for authentic and lasting change. This book was written for all who are thirsty for change—come to the water and be filled.”
Brent Crowe, Speaker, Vice President of Student Leadership University, and author of Reimagine: What the World Would Look Like If God Got His Way
 
“In a society that is constantly looking for a quick fix or any shortcut to change a relationship, reverse a lifetime of unhealthy choices, bail out a business—in essence, a game changer—Jordan Easley provides us with Life Change. He wastes no time in getting down to business. The very fact that he uses the gospel of Mark, the bottom line action gospel, is a good indication. Hold your breath, and hang on as you come face to face with the truth of God that gives us the courage to face our realities. Don’t waste another precious second, because these truths are transformational and, more importantly, transferable. The stuff in this book still works! If I want to know about coaching, I’m interested in what Lombardi or Landry had to say. If I want to know about character under fire, I’m interested in what Churchill and Lincoln said and did. And if I want to know how to communicate with this generation and empower them to untangle the knots in their life, Jordan Easley is who I want to read.”
Dr. Jay Strack, President and Founder of Student Leadership University
 
“Only you know what’s really going on in your life. If you know there’s something you need to change, and you just don’t know how to do it, then Life Change was written just for you. Whether you need to kick a habit, or if your entire lifestyle needs an overhaul, real change is absolutely possible, and Jordan Easley will help you discover what that looks like.”
Pete Wilson, Pastor and Author of Plan B and Let Hope In
 
“Jordan Easley represents a new generation of leaders willing to challenge both the culture and the church with the life-giving truth of God’s Word. Jordan’s charismatic and creative style effectively meets people where they are today.”
Ben Young, Pastor at Second Baptist Houston and author of Why Mike’s Not a Christian
 
“Most of us are rarely satisfied with who we are and are constantly fighting for change. Jordan Easley’s Life Change will help anyone navigate the stages and steps of spiritual change and point to real people who’ve been through it.”
Matt Lawson, Student Pastor at First Baptist Church, Woodstock, GA Author of Twisdom
 
“There is no one better to write about Life Change than Jordan Easley.  He has committed his life to allow God to use him to invest in others and see Life Change take place.  You will read in this book a simple, practical approach to life change all centered around Gods Word.  Jordan shows us how we can all change and unpacks how to allow change to take place.  It is a must read book and a great book to use for discipleship groups, sermon series or even a small group study.”  
Brian Mills, Student Pastor at Long Hollow Baptist Church, Hendersonville, TN. Author of Checkpoints; A Tactical Guide to Manhood
 
Each of us knows, intuitively, that there are both small and big changes we need to make in our lives. Yet we also know that it's much easier to stay as we are, because change is hard. Jordan Easley shows that it's possible, and not as hard as you think, to make those life changes, and he gives you practical, do-able steps to get you there, starting with embracing the power of Jesus Christ to change you at your deepest level
Clayton King, Founder and President, Crossroads Ministries
 
“While reading this book, I found Jordan time and time again answering questions that I didn’t realize my heart was asking. Every human desires change but we struggle to figure how to make it happen. In this amazingly practical book, Jordan helps us realize and believe that life change is found only in the accessible presence of Christ.”
Drew Worsham, Magician/Mentalist and Campus Pastor at Resonate Church, Pullman, WA
 
“‘Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.’ These words by Leo Tolstoy remind us how easy it is to become idealistic about change without considering ourselves. In Life Change, Jordan Easley offers practical, biblical help for the person who understands the only way to change the world is to stare in the mirror. You will be encouraged, challenged, and engaged by this book.”
Alvin L. Reid, PhD, Professor at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Author of As You Go and Evangelism Handbook

    Change is hard. How many times haven't we made New Year's resolutions...and then not kept them? Jordan wants us to know true change is possible. That's because God is the change factor. He is the only one capable of changing our lives.

    He reviews what makes change so hard for us and how we got in this state. Then he gives us hope by looking in the Gospel of Mark. We must be desperate for Jesus, just as was the leper. It was his need, his hope, and his faith that brought him to Jesus. From the paralytic we learn that it makes a difference who our friends are. From the lady with the issue of blood we see that a touch from Jesus can change everything. From Jairus (and his daughter) we learn that sometimes we need an advocate to intercede for us. Sometimes we need to wait expectantly, even when it looks hopeless.

    Jordan looks at other encounters people had with Jesus as illustrations of change. He gleans many more insights from those stories, helping us understand our need for supernatural change that comes from God alone. "You don't have the ability to change yourself, but Christ has a unique and supernatural way of changing the lives of people that are desperate for Him." (139-140)

    Jordan ends his book with practical suggestions. "Life Change is hard," he writes, "and if we're going to experience it, it requires much effort and diligence on our part." (163) It is going to require work. He identifies what we need to do to place ourselves before the Life Changing God.

    If you are desperate for change, read this book. Then go to the One who makes it possible, the Life Changer Himself.

    Food for thought: "[Problems] are platforms for God to work miracles." (107)

    I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review.

    Life Change breaks down a very complicated subject into some simple stories offered in the book of Mark. Easley walks through Jesus' encounter with several individuals who were desperately in need of change in their lives. Some of them had physical needs and some of them had spiritual needs but all of them walked away healed after placing their trust in Christ. This is a great book for an individual looking to gain a basic understanding of the kind of change a life with Jesus can produce as well as a person seeking to deepen their understanding of the relationship they already have with God.
