You have a plan for the rest of your life. God has a plan for the rest of your life. Are they the same? Say Yes to God - formerly titled Dangerous Surrender - will help you find the answer. You have expectations for how your life will play out, and you hope those plans will become realities. But what if God's plan for your life is far different from what you had in mind? Can you accept that? Will you surrender your goals for God's? Kay Warren had a plan. Together with her husband, Rick Warren, author of the megaseller The Purpose Driven Life, she planned that after her kids were grown, she'd travel the world, teaching and encouraging couples in ministry. It was a good plan. But it wasn't what God had in mind for her. In her own startling wake-up call, Kay discovered the shocking realities of the AIDS pandemic in Africa while reading a magazine. I want to use you! she heard God say. That began the struggle - first to avoid God's call and then to surrender herself to God. She cried out to God, Why are you bothering me with this? There's nothing I can do about it. I'm just an ordinary person. What could one person do about such a gigantic problem? But God had grabbed her attention and wouldn't let go. If you've ever struggled with knowing and doing God's will, this book is for you. Additional help can be found at www.kaywarren.com.

    " While I found this book interesting, I didn't find it particularly uplifting or moving. It passed the time but didn't inspire me to do huge things for Christ. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erika Childs | 2/3/2014

    " This book will stretch you beyond measures..God is so awesome when we say yes, and surrender all to him. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deanna | 1/22/2014

    " I was seriously disturbed after reading this...so much so that it changed my worldview. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol Rich | 1/17/2014

    " Kay Warren's surrender to God's will has led her to Africa, where she is working to save and bless the lives of thousands of children and adults with AIDS to work towards AIDS prevention. Wife of Pastor Rick Warren, Kay is an inspirational writer who found that God took her to a continent and a place to serve that she would never have dreamed of going to. I feel like my work in teaching about pornography addiction and prevention is just as serendipitous and unexpected. Ironically, it was after reading the Purpose Drive Life that many opportunities for service suddenly appeared in my life. "

    " Overall a good book although I probably would have enjoyed it more if I read it with someone else who could have discussed it with me. The author has a website with several good resources that go along with the readings. "

    " Great story! Kay Warren is very transparent and will make you think! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mandy Wilkins | 11/11/2013

    " Not bad, just not much that I haven't heard before... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 10/25/2013

    " Great book! The chapter about 'the kingdom of Me' is extremely thought provoking, I now think of that chapter when I am upset to make sure it's not because of my selfishness that I'm upset in the first place... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 9/24/2013

    " Enjoyed this book but she was very repetitive towards the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 8/17/2013

    " God wants to break strongholds in our lives of fear to break out of our comfort zones. He wants us to become gloriously ruined for the kingdom. It is a painful journey but brings much peace. This book will transform your walk with God. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa Kish | 6/24/2013

    " I went to Kenya last summer and had been having thoughts of returning to Africa in the future. It is obvious that Kay has a heart for Africa and AIDS work. I strongly recommend this book. "

    " Great book, very inspirational. It helped me jump forth for a dream that God placed in my heart, for his plan for my life in one area. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 1/14/2012

    " Very good book about answering Gods call in your life. I finished this after returning from my first mission trip to Africa and was so grateful to read Kay's descriptions and feelings as they helped me process all I had just experienced. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharon Gill | 10/2/2011

    " Life changing and thought provoking. I had greater respect for Kay after I read it. This book helps you to determine whether you are living your life according to your plans or God's plans. Highly recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan Franks | 5/31/2011

    " Kay Warren recounts her decision to surrender to God (particularly for AIDS advocacy) despite her inadequacies and initial disinterest in doing so. This books challenges us to give in to God's leading even if it seems too big or illogical. I was surprised by this book--it was better than expected! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 5/9/2011

    " I was very encouraged by this book. "

    " It makes you want to throw your hands up and say, "okay Lord, I'm ready to do whatever you want me to do." "
