Have you ever considered your life as an audition?
Regardless of who or where we are, we are constantly, often unconsciously, auditioning for a part. Loving wife. Amazing employee. Crafting queen. Socialite. All we really want is to be loved, affirmed, and accepted. What if we could learn to live the life we have always been auditioning for without all the stress?
Chasing Famous is a redemptive book that teaches us how to take the focus off ourselves and shift it back on to the glory of God. Written by a professional actress who readily admits that she is the most self-centered person she knows, Chasing Famous provides practical and sometimes humorous examples of scriptural truth that will help you master the natural self-centered tendencies of life. Once you've mastered these issues, and you can, your story will turn the spotlight on God where, you'll soon discover, what it means to truly live.

"Chasing Famous" is Lisa sharing her heart of getting back on track with chasing God and living life with God as the focus instead of herself. Every day we are each trying to improve ourselves for a certain role, be the model wife, be the mom who has the perfect home and the perfect kids, be the woman who can juggle all the hats she has to wear. However, it is not the life that God intended for each of us to live. Each chapter Lisa shares her story and her heart in, then a Biblical account was shared, drawing from various individuals from the Bible and their examples of living lives for Christ. Lisa then ends each chapter with questions to reflect on and answer. I really liked the layout of the chapters as it was easy to relate to Lisa as she was so open with her heart and life. Also, the Biblical accounts were familiar, yet there was some new insight I gained as well. Finally, it was easy to really take this book and relate it to my own life with the questions with each chapter. This is a great, easy read that will have you thinking about your own life.
