Whatever the Cost: Facing Your Fears, Dying to Your Dreams, and Living Powerfully – David and Jason Benham
This book follows the story of highly motivated and entrepreneurial twin brothers, David and Jason Benham, from their formative years to their rise as owners of a multi-million dollar business empire and securing an HGTV reality series. It's a journey where the brothers learned how they must die to their dreams as their TV series was stripped away from them just before airing when the network succumbed to media pressures surrounding their faith. These experiences only helped them realize that the key to powerful living is found when you die to your dreams, face your fears, and choose to live powerfully through it all.

He's already revealed his plan for our lives: to love him with our whole hearts, to obey His Word, and after that, to do what we like.
