DANNY’S BOOK NOW AVAILABLE!
“Magnificent Mark: Unlock your awesomeness and make your teenage years remarkable” is a book written to challenge teenagers. Danny Ray, a world-class magician and seasoned communicator, shares heart-warming, humorous and relatable stories from his own youth that will help students engage the concepts of this book. Most of all, however, he teaches a life-changing biblical truth that a teenager’s awesomeness isn’t found in trying to be like someone else, but rather, in fully embracing the person that God made them to be. Once they discover their God-designed greatness, they will be ready to leave a MARK in the world around them and LIVE REMARKABLY!
My favorite Bible verse in John 10:10, where Jesus tells us that he came
“that they may have life, and have it to the full.” That fullness of
life–what I long for–is a life available to teenagers. Jesus didn’t
come to give us a life of drudgery or rules or religious performance.
Magnificent Mark points readers to that full life, a life of purpose
and passion, adventure and meaning.

It’s amazing what this professional magician and Youth Pastor has managed to pull out of his hat in this short, funny and sometimes very heavy book designed for young people. He reaches in and pulls out an easy to read roadmap for guidance through life, a life jacket of hope to keep one’s head above the dark waters that sometimes engulf us, a lifetime supply of spiritual energy drinks, blocks of delicious wisdom and a massive heart of compassion and understanding.
Rick Bundschuh – Author Soul Surfer, Deep Like Me, illustrator and veteran Youth Pastor.
