Ever feel like your best days are behind you? As he rapidly approached “senior citizen” status, renowned speaker Ken Davis sure did. He was overweight, comfortable with his career, established in life and bored to death. One small event, however, would ultimately change his life forever, triggering a passionate desire to thrive rather then just survive.

If you desire to live Fully Alive, this book is a treasure map that leads from monotony to adventure, from the suffocating mundane to the breathtaking risk of real living. Fully Alive is the spark that will reignite your desire to live the life you were created to live. It will demonstrate how to:

  • Discover the adventure hiding in the middle of the mundane.
  • Get unstuck and take the first step toward a new body, mind, and spirit.
  • Kick guilt to the curb and experience real freedom.
  • Tap into a power that will protect you whether you’re crawling through the valley or standing on the mountaintop.
  • Exchange the pain of unmet expectations for the joy of living with expectancy.
  • Drive a stake into the heart of your everyday fears and live again.

If you’re ready to start living, and enjoy Ken Davis’ signature wit along the way, Fully Alive will take you there. Stop waiting on life. The reality is…life is waiting on you. You can start live meaningfully, purposefully—fully one step at a time.

“I am convinced more than ever that each human life is meant to be lived out completely—fully alive. And I can think of no one on this planet who has tackled this theme more powerfully or with more heart than Ken Davis. Fully Alive is a must-read for anyone and most especially those tempted to believe that their best days have already been lived.” – Bill Gaither
