On a scale of one to ten, how would you rate your life?

If you didn’t answer “ten,” you’re missing out. Missing out on the beautiful and exceptional life God has set aside just for you.

In his new book Live Ten: Jump Start the Best Version of Your Life, Pastor Terry A. Smith powerfully challenges readers to pursue a life that’s extraordinary.

We don’t have to settle for less.

We don’t have to accept average.

There is much more to life than playing it safe.

A prominent opinion piece once said that most of our problems result from wanting too much. Smith says he couldn’t agree less. He claims that people should want more.

“Not more stuff,” he writes. “More life. And not just for ourselves but also for others. “

Newark, New Jersey Mayor Cory Booker said, “If you are as passionate as I am about creating a better world, than this book will instruct and inspire you. Terry’s ideas have motivated and helped me.”

Live Ten speaks powerfully to the “area of destiny,” meaning individuals can achieve seemingly impossible things, but only within God’s plan for their lives. It’s a concept that readers will find both empowering and freeing.

Former General Electric CEO Jack Welch and his wife Suzy, former editor of the Harvard Business Review and best–selling author of

10-10-10, speak highly of this concept.

“Terry Smith’s Live Ten introduces the concept of ‘Area of Destiny’ – one of the best tools for career and life planning I’ve ever encountered,” said Suzy Welch. “This robust, practical book can change your life!”

Throughout the pages of Live Ten, Terry will encourage you to go after the “more and better” that God wants for your life.

“I may even try to provoke you a little, if you’ll let me,” he writes. “This world needs people who want more than nice little lives. This world needs people who care. People who want something great. People who are willing to go after it.”

God has an audacious adventure waiting for you.

Don’t miss it!
