Imagine looking back on the sum total of your earthly years . . . and realizing that your reasons to rejoice are far greater than your regrets. Living Backward is your invitation to discover the powerful gift of future-oriented hindsight and reap the incredible rewards it offers. As we grapple with today’s fleeting problem or tomorrow’s important choice, the ability to “live backward” provides us with not only a new perspective on our lives but also a powerful tool for creating true joy by fulfilling God’s plan for us. We desire to matter, and God knocks on our hearts, beckoning us to open the door to a life of eternal significance.
By way of word pictures, analogies, and personal anecdotes, Living Backward facilitates head-to-heart understanding, helping us internalize key biblical principles so we can truly experience their life-changing power. Only then can we achieve genuine success, weave enduring significance into our lives, and make the most of the precious time we’ve been allotted.

Why I Wrote This Book
I remember what it was like many years ago to read book after book—some biblically sound and some not so much—in my earnest attempt to live a life pleasing to God. I could never seem to figure out how all the advice and directives in the books fit together. After reading hundreds of books on all aspects of the Christian life, I was finally able to gain a solid biblical understanding of God’s eternal purpose for me and how to live what I learned.
Many years later, I discovered that many sincere followers of Christ have the same struggle I once had. Namely, how do I practically walk out God’s plan for my life? What does a Christ-exalting life look like? How do I grow from who I am into the person God created me to be?
That’s when God birthed the desire to write this book: a discipleship tool that condenses into one volume those major topics and key principles a person needs to know and understand in order to fulfill God’s purpose for creating us. In short, a book that contains the essentials that I desperately needed to know those many years ago. Drawing on God’s Word, my spiritual journey and experience, as well as the wisdom and knowledge gleaned from my extensive reading, I wanted to help others connect the dots in their own lives without having to pore through so many books.
So…I’m very excited that you’re here! I invite you to read Living Backward and move forward into building a life of true significance.
Deep down you desire no less.
