Ordinary Lives Extraordinary Mission Book

These are difficult times for the Catholic Church and the United States of America. There is only one solution to the problems we face… saints! Becoming a saint is a choice, and we must begin choosing the saint within each of us. The biggest crisis of our time is not economic, health care, or vocations, but is an identity crisis. We have forgotten our mission to become saints and forgotten our story as Catholics. We must rediscover that mission and hold each other accountable to accepting responsibility for that mission. Business as usual is not going to cut it. We need heroic Catholicism. We must stop talking, and start walking… stop crying, and start sweating… stop defining ourselves by our sins, and start realizing we are saints in the making! Everything we need to accomplish our mission is in the Church… but the Catholic Church is a sleeping giant. It is time we wake the sleeping giant!

This book is a five step guide to choosing the saint within you. The world doesn’t need another John Paul II or Mother Teresa. The world needs you. Your ordinary life has an extraordinary purpose.

Outstanding Read September 25, 2015
Reviewer: Mark from New York  
This was an excellent book.  John has a very easy to read writing style and a passion about his faith that comes through loud and clear as you read.  By his own admission, he doesn't say anything new, but has packaged his message into a very compelling book.

Ordinary Lives Extraordinary Mission November 18, 2013
Reviewer: Kevin Chaffee from Batesville, IN  
After reading this book, I sent an email to everyone on my church email list:

"Sometimes I think we all need to stop and ask, how's life? For me, it's been pretty tough lately. I was recently cheated out of payment on a project I worked 2 years on.  

Immediately after that, another project I had been working on for 6 or 7 years was put out to bid. Right before the bid we were notified that our company would have to bid equipment almost twice the size of what our competitor was supplying. We were priced out of the project and lost the work.

At the height of my despair, I happened to pick up a book someone sent to me. It was this book. It literally picked me up off the floor and recharged my evangelistic batteries.

I plan to get copies for my wife and kids and pray that the Holy Spirit will entice them to read it!"

Become a Saint! May 20, 2013
Reviewer: Jason from Mississippi  
Dr. Wood lays out a road map for becoming a saint.  He mixes in a good blend of personal anecdotes, humor, and knowledge to drive his points home.

As a man in my mid 30's with many the same life experiences as the author, this book was an inspiration.   If you've read Matthew Kelly's books, the message will seem familiar, but it's nice to hear a different take on the same message.
