Uncommon : Pursuing a Life of Passion and Purpose
Author: Carey Scott
Uncommon is a battle cry for women to step out of the ordinary and live differently.
It's a blueprint for a life full of passion and purpose. And it has the power to change everything.
Carey Scott, author, speaker, and certified Biblical Life Coach, invites you to journey alongside her as she introduces you to women from the Word who chose to live uncommon lives even in the toughest circumstances. From stepping into scandalous situations to breaking cultural norms to risking the departure of a comfortable life, you will discover hope and motivation to live God’s way in a world that screams, “Tuck your faith away! Just be normal like everyone else!”
Now more than ever, it's time to step into something new. . .something life-changing and life-giving. God is asking you to shine Him into a world that needs to know there is a better way to live. And when you say yes to becoming uncommon, it's a radical act of obedience to the One who created you to be extraordinary. Uncommon offers personal stories, insights, life lessons, questions for further reflection, and biblical support written especially for women.
With authenticity, vulnerability, humor, refreshing boldness and anchored in the Beatitudes, Uncommon will empower you to rise up. . .to reject the common. . .to embrace your calling. . . and to live in a way that points others to God. Buckle up, friend. It's time to be uncommon.
“In a day and time when the world pushes us to bow to culture, I’m grateful for this message to be uncommon for Jesus. Thank you, Carey, for your transparency in the pages, and for reminding us of the way of joy and holy release.”

“In a world that seems to be in a race to the lowest common denominator, Scott calls us higher with Uncommon. She surrounds us with a crowd of exemplary women from scripture, equips us with verses to cling to and prayers to pray, and pushes us forward with the voice of a friend and coach. Uncommon is the book that's needed for women of our day.”

“If you're comfortable with mediocrity, don't bother opening this book. But if you've been longing to escape the mundane? . . . Throughout these pages, you'll hear the voice of the best kind of friend: one who's been there, who gets where you're at, and who wants to see you grow far beyond the status quo. Carey equips you to step boldly into the intentional, countercultural, uncommon life God created you for and calls you to live.”
