Synopsis: “More than anything, I wanted my life to matter ...” When Shane Stanford discovered he was HIV positive twenty years ago, he knew he had a choice: he could feel sorry for himself, or he could live as faith-fully and boldly as possible. In A Positive Life, Shane offers nine basic yet powerful lessons for living well, all found within the life and ministry of Jesus. As Shane has discovered, even a difficult road offers glimpses of grace. Choosing how to live out that grace is the key to making life matter―and to being more alive than ever before. “The positive life is not about achieving but about becoming. To understand this is to understand the whole journey.” At the age of sixteen, Shane Stanford contracted HIV from procedures used to treat hemophilia. But through the grace of God, he turned a positive diagnosis into an opportunity for positive living. In this powerful mosaic of story, biblical insight, and spiritual reflections, Shane invites you to a simpler, more contented life as you live, laugh, and love in community as Jesus did―with an appreciation for God’s incredible adventure no matter the circumstances. After all, the key to living with purpose is found not in some distant revelation but in our own story and in the stories of those around us. The daily routine that seems mundane might just hold the answers to greater joy. As Shane writes, “What we are looking for has been within our grasp all along.” So discover how to treasure each day through this hope-filled account of faith, courage, and character. Shane’s hard-won words and unique perspective teach all of us about the simplicity of life’s most beautiful and enduring gifts.

From the Back Cover: What causes some people—in spite of incredible challenges—to be more alive and content than others? When Shane Stanford discovered he was HIV positive at the age of sixteen, he knew he had a choice: he could feel sorry for himself, or he could live as passionately and boldly as possible. Now, more than twenty years later, Stanford speaks nationwide about what it means to turn a positive diagnosis—or any difficult circumstance—into an opportunity for positive living. Written for those who want to appreciate life to the fullest, A Positive Life reveals nine basic yet powerful lessons for living well. What does it mean to be satisfied with never being satisfied? Why is simplicity a key to finding joy? Most importantly, what does it look like to live, laugh, and love in community as Jesus did—with dirty hands and feet and a love of adventure? Stanford reminds readers that even struggles offer glimpses of grace. Choosing how to live out that grace is the key to making life matter—and to being more alive than ever before.
