There’s a feeling deep within you. It’s the feeling that you’re not living up to your full potential. That somewhere out there you’re missing out. That you are meant for more in this life and simply don’t know where to turn to achieve it.

At the same time, you’re aware that you live in a sad, broken world, filled with crime, pain, division, and so much more. How can you really see the more that you are meant to be living in such a world as that?

Using real-life vignettes Rev. John Nunes is here to help. He’s here to let you know that you’re filling your life with things that don’t matter. Things that aren’t pulling your closer to God and are perhaps pulling you away from Him. Instead, find your ability to fill your life with more of what matters.

God is calling you to more and is giving you all the equipment for it. He is coming to you through the ordinary—ordinary water, wine, hands, and bread—to turn you into someone extraordinary with the ability to do more than you ever believed possible.

Are you ready to discover your more?

Praise for Meant for More

“Instead of stumbling through another legalistic, self-improvement 'how to' manual, join John Nunes’ newness journey through a refreshing 'where-to' book in which pithy propositions from prepositions like 'in', 'with', and 'under' cultivate a catechetical contemplation of 'more' as 'more' is liberated from greedy godlessness and robustly reclaimed for invigorated and surprisingly satisfying service. Brimming with quotes from Scripture and Martin Luther while peppered with vivid personal vignettes, Nunes the poet-prophet-preacher proclaims the Means of the Spirit so that the devotional reassessment of our ordinary circumstances accessibly manifests the more motivating faithfulness of Christ Jesus in the here and now.”
—Dien Ashley Taylor, Pastor, Redeemer Evangelical Lutheran Church, Bronx, New York; First Vice-President, LCMS Atlantic District
