9781630477493: Who Are the Joneses Anyway?: Stop Living Someone Else's Life and Start Becoming who You are Meant to Be (Morgan James Faith)

At one time or another, most of us have heard the expression "keeping up with the Joneses", referring to a legendary family that has the world trying to keep up with them. They are mentioned in tweets, movies, newscasts, articles, blogs, books, and more. They are mysterious. They seem to be everywhere, but no one appears to have actually met them. Why is that?

You have likely heard of them too, but have you met the Joneses? We have, and we would like to introduce them to you. We think you'll be just as surprised as we were by who they are.

Too often we measure success by our accomplishments or the stuff we have accumulated. But life should be about so much more, like discovering who you are, why you are here, and the legacy you create.

Think of the possibilities if you started living your life more intentionally, doing more of the things that matter most-and less of everything else. Could life be less hectic? What if you spent more time doing things today that could lead to a better tomorrow, instead of just trying to survive each day? What if you could live more simply, yet more fully?

In "Who Are the Joneses Anyway?", we lead you on your own "Joneses Journey", ask you relevant questions and encourage to be brave enough to seek the answers. The practical approach and resources will help you get from where you are to where you really want your life to be as you to think less about your "what" and begin thinking more about your "who."

From the Author:

We discovered that helping others began with sharing our life stories. Personal life stories are powerful, and ours brought us to a realization that there had to be more to life. We are just like many of you--ordinary, hardworking people who discovered ourselves trapped in a race we didn't even realize we were in.

The more we shared our stories and what we learned, the more we realized we were not alone as others, in turn, shared their own personal journeys with us. Many life stories later, we have heard how overspending, gambling, materialism, approval addiction, and many other things have been railroading individuals and families away from the lives they were meant to lead.

We've witnessed how low self-esteem and poor self-identity have trapped people into thinking they are not a good enough mom or dad, husband or wife, son or daughter--unless they could provide those special shoes, live in the right zip code, drive a certain car, or maintain a prestigious enough title. We've listened to story after story of fractured lives, struggling marriages, and hijacked dreams.

Many people have told us they are stressed and working too much, and their families hardly know them. They are never home, their marriages are difficult, and they are barely hanging on. Their lives are like running a marathon on a treadmill--they put in all the work but don't get anywhere.

Others tell us they have it "all"--everything life has to offer. Yet, deep down, they know they were created for more and want their lives to count for something more meaningful and have greater impact than just a collection of titles and possessions.

Still others don't have a clue who they are. They struggle each day searching for significance and acceptance. They try everything they can think of--social media, shopping, alcohol, drugs, new fashions, and more. No matter what they do, they can't seem to find contentment in any of it.

Some have passionately shared that they "hate" their life. They might have everything we think we're supposed to want: the home, the job, the cars, and all the toys. But they find themselves worn out from spending all of their time maintaining their possessions.

They have yet to learn that God is better than stuff.

This is exactly what God had shown us in our own lives--there was something better out there.

This is the same hope we want to help others discover. Not everybody hates their lives, but how many of us are really happy? How many of us are enjoying our lives and spending more time loving, giving, and experiencing freedom, rather than the opposite? How many of us are really content? Is true contentment even possible?

It's time to live our lives with a new perspective. Join us on what we call a "Joneses Journey" and you will learn how to discover who you are and why you are here so you can live the intentional, authentic life you were created for.

From the Inside Flap:

We know of them, yet have not met them.
We've heard of them, but haven't seen them.
We chase them, and never catch them.
Who are they?

The Joneses! Who are the Joneses and why do so many of us try to keep up with them? In Who Are the Joneses Anyway? you will discover answers to these and other questions that just might change your life forever.

Let's go on this journey of discovery together.
