[Book] A Greater Story: My Rescue, Your Purpose, and Our Place in God’s Plan by Sam Collier
Speaker, Pastor and National TV/Podcast Host Sam Collier Releases A GREATER STORY, Revealing His Journey From Poverty to Purpose Collier Reunited with Birth Family On “Steve Harvey Show”, Launching His Gripping Story of Hope Despite Adversity. Sam Collier didn’t have an easy start in life. When he and his twin sister were born, their biological mother gave them over to foster care, leaving them mistreated and rejected as infants. After being adopted by a loving family at an early age, Collier still felt that crucial pieces of his life were missing until he learned to lean on his faith. In 2014, with the help of The Steve Harvey Show, Sam and his twin sister were reunited with not only their birth mother, but also their three other siblings, confirming to Collier that God is the best author of our lives. Despite the splashy family reunion on a national television show, however, there is plenty more story to tell, revealed in Collier’s book in a winsome and warm way. In his deeply personal and universally relatable upcoming book, A Greater Story: My Rescue, Your Purpose, and Our Place in God’s Plan (August 2020, Baker Publishing Group), Collier tells the inspiring journey of his experiences of abandonment, sacrifice, rescue and gratitude that led him to discover his purpose and place in God’s plan. In the book, Collier shares that your purpose is wherever your passion, giftings and God’s provision intersect. “I’ve made my living telling people that despite what they believed their story was about abandonment, addiction, graduating from high school, getting a promotion, finding true love, being adopted, reconciling with a loved one, or getting fit in the gym—I believe it’s all a part of God’s plan,” writes Collier. “And that by deciding to connect with Him intentionally, meaningfully, and enthusiastically, they will find true purpose.” A Greater Story is full of reminders that God has a better plan for every single one of us. Collier intertwines Scripture and his personal experiences in a way that relates to each reader’s journey of finding their purpose. Whether in hard seasons or times of great triumph, readers can use the lessons in Collier’s new book to see how God is working in their lives. “I look back now and see that through every loss—my music ambitions, my ministry experiences, my nonprofit—God was there to spur me on, always prompting me to keep his main thing my main thing, instead of letting my will, my way, take control.” Collier’s perception of his success and failures has led him to recognize the greater story that can only be written by God. A Greater Story encourages readers to consider that while God’s plan may look different than we’d like at times, His story is always greater than the story we could write for ourselves.
