In Made for Amazing, Mark Nation tells the story of Joshua Lynk, a troubled young man with an extraordinary musical talent. Josh’s father deserts him at an early age, leaving his grandfather to serve as his primary mentor and source of wisdom. Choosing fame and fortune over his grandfather’s advice, Josh neglects the deeper, spiritual part of himself. In the excitement of playing to crowds and seeking to imitate others, Josh forgets his true music. A rise to success that ends in sorrow leaves Josh in a crisis of self-doubt and pity. Recalling his grandfather’s advice to “Head for Ap Jack,” Josh returns to his grandfather’s cabin on the mountain and transforms his life, leading him to a deeper sense of purpose, joy, and professional fulfillment.

Made for Amazing serves as your guide on the journey to create a legacy of success and a life of significance. Filled with convincing portrayals of a musician’s life and relationships, this inspiring self-help parable will empower you to seek your own deeper meaning in life and reach your fullest potential. Josh’s story and the thought-provoking Questions for Reflection and Discussion will help you to unlock your giftedness, embrace your passion, and discover your authentic leadership purpose.
