I am excited and humbled by the early response to my book.
Here are a few of those testimonials from leaders who have read the unedited version of Fear Not Dream Big & Execute
For every book I have read that inspired... yet left me motionless, I have read another that directed... yet found me emotionless. In Fear Not Dream Big & Execute, Jeff Meyer successfully stokes a raging God-fire of mission from the cooling embers of calling, especially for those suffering the winds of Sunday-to-Sunday survival. Street-level practicality walks hand in hand with rare-air creativity in every lesson, challenging the reader to be more, not just do more. I can easily see this book being a go-to leadership resource on my bedside table for years of ministry to come.

I am thrilled to have a Christian resource that challenges believers to throw off fear and to courageously dream and live as our Creator intended. It is both inspiring and practical. It is a tool I intend to use for myself and to share.-
--Anneke Hudson, author, Bevilacqua: Christian meditations for young women
From the outside a walk with the Lord can look like God has us in a grand field where his sheep play and feed in the fresh green grass and drink by cool waters. Reality is, there are some days where that pasture is a wet, soggy, hill side where the shepherd can’t help but get his boots so stuck in the slop as he walks, that they literally can get pulled right off of his feet. I love that this book is meant to help shepherds/pastors/lay people see our walk with God for what it is. Ministry is not clean, a walk on God’s path is not easy and there are days when it feels like you’re stuck in the mud.
I read this book and looked at it as a little help for me on those days when I am stuck. The lessons, images, and exercises are meant to take hold of individually on the days when you need to be picked up and moved to dry ground. That is what I found in this book. It is a book of hope and inspiration to give me a push, or a nudge to get going again as my wheels are spinning in the mud.
-Pastor Anthony Kobak, The Hanover Lutheran Church
