The book is a reminder that there are choices in life that we all must make regarding helping others and losing your life “to find it.”
I haven’t even finished listening to the audio book of Jeff Goins’ Wrecked and I couldn’t wait to tell you that it is masterfully written and read by the author. I am literally on the edge of my chair and this isn’t even a mystery!

The book is a reminder that there are choices in life that we all must make regarding helping others and losing your life “to find it.” It also is a reminder that we all desire for our lives to have meaning and purpose and that it is important in life to commit.

Jeff recounts the story of a missions trip that he took and how he and friends ministered to a “nameless woman.” This story reminds me of the scripture in Hebrews 13:2 (AMP) that says,

"Do not forget or neglect or refuse to extend hospitality to strangers [in the brotherhood—being friendly, cordial, and gracious, sharing the comforts of your home and doing your part generously], for through it some have entertained angels without knowing it."

Jeff somehow was left with a sense of not having done enough after they parted ways with the “nameless woman.”

One of the thoughts that stays glued within the depths of my being is the thought that Jeff puts out there that when we see someone in need we very often assume that “someone will come along and do the right thing.” In other words, that someone might walk by a person in need thinking that he/she is NOT that someone to help! When in doubt, if you see a need, Jeff suggests, go ahead and be that one to meet it.

All in all, I am impressed with the style and the content of the wisdom that Jeff shares in this book. If you are ready for change, this book is for you. I appreciate Jeff’s transparency, honesty and willingness to share his feelings on a subject without making the reader (or, in my case, listener) feel guilty or in shame for not having done the right thing when the opportunity has arisen. I know, as for me and “my house, “I have helped many people but will think twice in the future before I think “I am not that someone to help.” If it’s in my power to help, I will do what I can.

Your calling is out there says Jeff – it’s your job to find it. What this really reminds me of is that recently a study was done and 4 out of 5 people hate their jobs. That speaks great volumes.

Well, please excuse me while I go to get "wrecked: and finish the last chapter!

Please note: I received a copy of this book from Cross Focused Media in exchange for my review.

The Brokenness of this world is waiting for Us to respond . Wrecked restates the call to action.
here is a wave of Christian writers emerging to usher in the next generation of those truly living to love like God loves. Jeff Goins vividly portrays this message in Wrecked: When a Broken World Slams into Your Comfortable Life.

As connected as we are, it has become to relate to the conditions of the world. I am often reminded, no matter what I am presented with Jesus, who is love, was fueled by the compassion he possessed for others. What are you fueling?

As I perused through Michael Hyatt’s website, a few months ago, he mentioned content by his friend Jeff Goins. Naturally, I clicked over to that site.

Jeff Goins is a believer of the God of the Bible, and has pursued the desires that the creator placed in his heart.


Jeff Goins offers a call to action throughout the text providing tangible accounts of being Wrecked. Be prepared for an encounter with your hearts intentions as you read this work. Those that have felt the hand of God on them while being a blessing to those in need -will continue. Others will have a new lens to embrace opportunities as they present themselves.

Jeff describes being Wrecked in the subtitle. Ultimately, we have to observe what is truly taking place beyond our backyards and set our sights around the corner, over the hill and through the woods.

Our world is broken, yet there is a remedy. The creation is waiting, anxious for us to respond to the pain of brokenness.

Jeff stated the Being Wrecked is a “Shot at living the lives we are scared to live.”

The brokenness of the world is thick. It is palpable. It is for us to alter it.

I strongly suggest you check out Jeff Goins. While you are at it, be a blessing, pass it on from the Wrecked website.

Thank you to Crossed Focused Reviews and christianaudio.com for allowing me to be a part of this movement. I have reached out to Jeff and he has responded. You can check out that conversation here. I am not only a Wrecked reviewer. I am a member of the Jeff Goins Tribe.

I am Wrecked with Safe Families, we can do more.

Are you ready to get Wrecked? Let’s do it!

Wrecked - brilliant and challenging book
We all have experiences in life where it completely turns it upside down. Whether that is an experience of going abroad and seeing the poverty and brokenness in the world or just like myself, of building an organisation and then being made redundant. This book examines these experiences and what we can do about them. Jeff has an amazing ability to tell a story in such a way that is engaging and challenging. It is one of a few books that I want to read over again, in case I have missed something or a challenge that I need to think about again. I have also been challenged that you do not really find happiness in gaining more, it is more what you can give of your life, facing new experiences and learning from them. What if you say, about your job, I am going to stick with it, work hard and do my best, no matter what. One of the biggest lessons I have learn’t is there is life to lead, life doesn’t stop with being broken, it is a new beginning and you are seeing in a completely different way that can help you move on and benefit the world around you. Thank you Jeff.
