Optimisfits, is relatable, encouraging and thought provoking and true Thank you Ben Courson for writing about Optimisfits and how to become one So, I was privileged to be apart of a launch team for this book, and thus I was able to get a pre released e copy It has been soooo amazing There are so many things in here that will blow your mind, make you think about your mind, and make you laugh soo hard It was much like Bens other books, but much longer and even full of hope and redefining life as we know it really I encourage anyone who reads it to be prepared for some radical ideas, laughs, realizations, and I suppose I could liken it to a flash of light, just a burst of refreshing optimism Always remember though that this hope is never found anywhere but in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and it requires a lot of surrender and trust But it is the best possible thing you could do for yourself and the world WARNING This book may cause the reader to want to start dancing and or go do something out of the ordinary, go share this with someone else, transform the world, or I don t know, LOW KEY WORLD DOMINATION MWAHAHAHAHA All opinions are my own and now it s up to you to go taste and see what hope can look like May this book lead you to the source of all things good.

Ben s Courson s new book Optimisfits is much like life itself a swiftly moving river with all kinds of twists, turns, shallows, rapids, and thrilling waterfalls Life s river speeds us on towards an unknown delta and beyond Ben s book challenges us to hang on and enjoy the ride with enthusiasm, expectation, hope, and love Love of God, His creation, each other, and every experience we encounter Even in the dark times, the lonely times, the heart wrenching times, Ben shows us how to have hope and joy because we belong to the One eternally seated on His throne And just around the next bend or over the next waterfall, God has unimaginable blessings waiting for us.Ben s writing style is quirky and unique It speeds up, then slows down It takes you to a high mountaintop panoramic view, then dives down to a lengthy explanation of a specific concept or example To be honest, it took about 10 chapters for me to jump on board with his thought process And it took to the very end of the book for me to finally understand why the book is written the way it is I m not going to explain further, because SPOILERS I knew nothing about Ben before reading Optimisfits I still don t know his life story This is not a straightforward memoir, but snippets of his life experiences are sprinkled throughout Just enough to want to sit down for an afternoon with him and have an engaging conversation about God, the Bible, life, and hope Ben s intelligence, wit, and compassion are on full display in this fast compelling read I ended the book with a smile on my face and hope in my heart I hope that you will as well.I received an advance copy from the publisher and all opinions are my own. I haven t read the book yet but I m going to and I already know it s going to be 5 stars as Ben courson is awesome Optimisfits Igniting A Fierce Rebellion Against Hopelessness is a call to reach towards something that seems to be in short supply hope Author Ben Courson explains what an optimisfit is in this funny, honest read He shares stories of his Squad of very different friends and how they continue to enjoy this life to the fullest Ben also provides anecdotes from people in history that he feels embodies the spirit of an optimisfit The question then remains are you willing to become a hope dealer This book s message is something that will reach across generations With record numbers of suicide, depression and anxiety that plague our world today, Optimisfits offers a better way to face struggles honesty and vulnerability within safe circles There are also encouragements throughout the book to remain different, to stand in our own uniqueness amidst assimilation, and to seek God s will for our lives, even when they do not look like the lives we envisioned I have not read any of Ben s work before, but the idea that we can be open about where our battles lie, admit we don t have it all together and still be effective in God s community are important messages We don t have to be perfect to make a difference or to offer hope Often we think we are the only ones struggling and turn to isolation This book will encourage the reader to seek friends who can support you through tough times, as well as happy times There is also encouragement to seek, savor and enjoy the wonder that surrounds us in the world Ben writes in a very down to earth way with a maturity beyond his years He is connected to a generation that thinks outside the box, does not want to conform to the societal norms, and wants to make a true difference as a result of doing things differently I noticed throughout the book that some see optimism as an idea that isn t based on the real world, you CAN be optimistic, while at the same time, admitting life isn t always perfect It means latching onto the hope we have in Christ and pushing that hope outward, changing the culture in the process I was excited to read an early review PDF thanks to Harvest House All opinions are my own.
