Athletes and actors, models and musicians, pastors and politicians - many have stepped forward and proclaimed, "I am second." But most of the people in the I Am Second movement are not celebrities. They are ordinary people who have come to the simple realization that when God comes first in their lives, everything makes sense.
That's not to say that living second is easy. It takes grit and humility, submission to God's will, a willingness to listen and serve and an openness to God's healing and call. Live Second: 365 Ways to Make Jesus First, the follow-up to author Doug Bender's bestselling book I am Second, is a daily guide to help you. With 365 readings, prayers, actions steps and an invitation to join other Christ-followers online, it is a tool built with truth, Scripture and a sure path to put Jesus first every day.
Live Second is exactly the resource you need as you become the new, inspired, God-honoring creation He made you to be.

- a great introductory devotional by uncurable bookworm on 12/28/2012
Live Second is a great introductory devotional for someone new to the faith or who is seeking. It also make a good take along devotional for veterans of the faith who want something quick to read to take with them to work or in their car. From the writers of I Am Second, this devotional includes links to some of the website's testimony videos. Each day's reading begins with a verse of Scripure and continues with a brief reading that will give you something to think & pray about as you go through your day.
- Living Second Changes Everything by I am Brandy and I AM Second on 12/11/2012
As I sit with a blank paper in front of me and I think of the words that I should write to most encourage someone reading this to buy the book, I can think of so many reasons, I will try and give you an insight on how this book and iamsecond has changed me. I have never written a review before, nor am I a bible scholar, I am just me, an ordinary person that has a new outlook on life; so with these words I share may you also be inspired and I pray that anyone that might come across this have an open heart and an open mind and buy Live Second by Doug Bender; you will be so grateful for embarking on the journey of this book and sharing it with others. The amazing way this book allows God to speak to you and to hear his words are beyond anything that I can understand (I have tried to move around in the book a bit to try and really give my best opinion): let me explain why: On page 26 titled Day 6: Is He First? - The bible reading for this day is Genesis 22:1-19, this is a story about Abraham's faith being tested. On the particular day that I read this entry, it was God's way of speaking to me. It in one page was telling me all that I had thought about that day. As I closed my eyes after reading, I had a smile on my face and I knew that God was speaking to me and letting me know, I am second and I should follow the path he is paving for me. You see that's just it, as a Christian life doesn't become worry free and without trials, but as a Christian you have tools to work through the worry and trials and that my friend is something money cannot buy. Becoming second in life has brought comfort, forgiveness, joy, happiness, hope, love, and humbleness in our home, to see the changes in my husband and I; what a blessing. My husband first bought me an iamsecond bracelet, and then we found the website, and then bought the Audio version for the first I am Second book, then I found iamsecond on Facebook, and then the blessing of being part of the volunteer based launch team for the new book, and then I am discovering hopes and dreams and so my story will continue on day after day following God's call for my life. What can I say to sum this all up?
If you have a prayer, pray it
If you have a dream, dream it
If you have a goal, set it
That is what I believe Doug Bender and the entire I am Second Team has and I think you can have that too, that is what iamsecond has inspired me to do! Live Second is perfect, Live Second starts each day with a scripture and has you read a bible passage, then it has what I call a "think about" section, then the Talk with God section, and you pray and then the section of Live it and Tell it and then Live Second challenges you!
Live it, Love it, Rock it, and Share It.
Thank you for taking the time to read this review may God Bless you on your journey!
