Praise for Life's great dare

Cannot recommend Life’s Great Dare highly enough.
— Ann Voskamp, New York Times Bestselling Author, One Thousand Gifts
You know that thing you’ve been wanting to do for a long time now, but you just keep putting off? Yes, that’s the one. That thing that just popped into your mind—the conversation, the trip, the move, the job. We all have something, but there are obstacles, invisible or otherwise, getting in our way. In this book, Christa will dare you, with grace and firmness and wisdom, to be brave and finally do it. After all, what are you waiting for, anyway?
— Allison Fallon, Author, Speaker,
When faced with pain, uncertainty or fear, we can become paralyzed, afraid to take the next step. But in this book, through her compelling reflections and moving personal story, Christa Hesselink points us to the real path toward the transformed life God calls us to: taking risks, moving forward, reaching out and opening up. Then we’ll find freedom and the courage to persevere, no matter what life brings. So, don’t play it safe. Follow Christa’s example. Go. Jump. Dare!
— Michael Messenger, President, World Vision Canada
Some mountains are virtually impossible to climb without a trusted guide. Inner personal transformation is one of these mountains. Christa is one of these guides. Her compelling story, seasoned wisdom, and artful style will turn what may at first feel like a daunting task into a truly inspiring journey. I invite you to take “life’s great dare”, open your heart and join her on this upward path. The view that lies ahead is incredible!
— Tim Day, Author & Leader of
Life’s Great Dare unveils how God is willing to change us when we are willing to let him. Christa weaves her own powerful story of ongoing transformation together with immensely practical ways of finding radical freedom through risking our lives to God!
— Bruxy Cavey, Author & Teaching Pastor @ The Meeting House
‘New life that leads to freedom and love’ - that says it all. That makes diving deep and soaking in Christa’s book an awakening experience.
— John McAuley, President & CEO of Muskoka Woods
Life’s Great Dare is for anyone who has a little voice inside asking them to live a bigger, bolder, more adventurous life. Through story-telling and inspired words, this book equips you to pursue a path of personal transformation, and leaves you wanting to say YES to life’s great dare (and maybe even a few double dares)!
— Zoë Neuman, The Lovelocks Band
A helpful guide for anyone on the look out for the deeper waters of life. While we know that it may take a leap of faith, Christa reminds us that when in doubt, it’s always better to jump afraid than to never jump at all.
— Ali Raney, The Lovelocks Band
The future belongs to those who have nothing to lose. This is truth Christa Hesselink captures in this wonderfully written and personal book, Life’s Great Dare. Each page points toward the possibility of a life lived vulnerably, passionately and deeply with God. Christa’s personal journey is the mirror held up for all of us to see how life might be more adventure and less antiseptic. If you have ever wanted to live the faithful life with abandon, this is the book to read!
— Gary V. Nelson, Author & President of Tyndale University College & Seminary
Christa’s reflections on God’s movement in her life help us recognize God’s movement in ours. Pondering challenges, perplexities, and losses that she’s experienced, she invites us all to be more fully embraced by God’s love. Her blend of wit and wisdom, honesty and hopefulness, not to mention her wonderful way with words, will hearten you as it did me.
— Arthur Boers, author of The Way is Made by Walking: A Pilgrimage Along the Camino de Santiago and Living into Focus: Choosing What Matters in an Age of Distractions
Christa has the wonderful ability to encourage and convict us in the same sentence. She beautifully uses Biblical texts and personal stories, convincing us to submit and be transformed by a loving God and to take part in what she calls the ultimate double-dare. Whether bungee jumping in South Africa or walking the El Camino, her life is a true testament of what it means to follow Jesus wholeheartedly and with great conviction.
— Melinda Estabrooks, International Speaker, TV & Radio Host
Jump in! Life’s Great Dare is challenge to a fully engaged life. Christa is a persuasive friend along the journey of life inviting us to live a more full life. My hope is people far and wide are impacted by the message of this book!
— Rich Birch,
Life’s Great Dare will take you on a transformational journey! If you’re simply looking for information, this isn’t your book. But if you desire to experience freedom in encountering God’s love and following Jesus, you will want to read, and soak, in these compelling truths.
— Dr. Craig Sider, President, New York City Leadership Centre
Christa has given us a deeply personal and gut-twistingly vulnerable work… in her words a “self-hope, not a self-help book”. And yet as she shows us over and over, it is not about the self at all. She takes us to the culturally unpopular places of sacrifice, suffering and surrender. Rich with stories from childhood, from the Gospel, and from last week, Christa reminds us powerfully of the joy available when we live with hands open and upturned, “ready to receive instead of living life with fists tightly clenched around things that give me the illusion of control.
— Rick Cober Bauman, Executive Director, Mennonite Central Committee Ontario
