Finally, a book that challenges us to move from focusing on our inadequacies to now achieving impossibilities. Dwayne Pickett has given the kingdom a masterpiece that is transparent and practical. This is a must read for every leader and I assure you that it will transform your thinking and reignite your passion for the assignment God has given you.

If you’re headed into a new adventure it’s vital to talk to someone who has been there before. Dwayne Pickett has been there…he’s been to hell and back – faced adversity and death and disappointment – and won the victory. In “Living With Life’s Limps” he gives us the pathway to freedom, success and fulfillment. I thank God for a man like Dr. Pickett who will be real, not give us a cute little formula, but the real stuff of life, and how to live strong. Never learn from a man who walks without a limp…the man who limps – he’s the true champion.

One of the great joys of my life is to know and work with Dwayne Pickett. He is a leader. He is an innovator. He is a family man. And he is a man of God. Even more, he has an incredible story, a story that will inspire, motivate, and change your life. But his book, Living with Life’s Limps, is not just his story; it is our story as well. Read it. Apply it. And live it.

Founder/Sr. Pastor Word of Faith Family Worship Cathedral Atlanta, GA

“Living With Life’s Limps is a book saturated in authenticity and transparency. Its honesty is encouraging. My friend, Dwayne Pickett, teaches an inspiring lesson. He helps unpack the conundrum of the duplicitous Jacob/Israel nature that lies within humanity. You’ll be encouraged to know that God still uses flawed people, despite your imperfections
