"Do you have it in you to take the uncommon road?"

says Susie ^Larson as she challenges you to fight against the ordinary and move toward the extraordinary. ^Guiding you through scenarios in which victory is found in the difficult task of ^responding in faith, Susie walks with you as a friend. Her experiences have shown ^her that to fight the current of that which is ordinary, you must look to the Lord, ^who stoops to make the common great.

Susie explains the distinction between ^a common and uncommon woman is often tied to their reactions to circumstances. The ^common person reacts with pat answers; she casually dismisses others in their moments ^of weakness; she stays on the low road to build her case.

But the uncommon ^woman responds to God's love. She covers another's weakness, she chooses her battles ^wisely, she seeks the high road. She knows that Jesus is alive and active and willing ^to change her life. And where she walks, then, becomes holy ground.

Perhaps ^you don't think you can be extraordinary. Maybe you do not believe you can be a ^godly influence on all those around you. The Uncommon Woman will show you how to ^be uncommon in your circumstance, regardless of the situation. Each chapter includes ^biblical teaching, personal illustrations, and a "what about you?" section to give ^you a chance to reflect on what you've read.

Take a chance. Dare to be uncommon.
