Joey Lankford had what a lot of people want in life: the nice house, the nice family, and the nice salary (not to mention the nice stuff that goes along with it). But a nice life also comes with a big hunger for more. And at about the time he realized it, he discovered how drained, empty, and frustrated he felt from trying to keep up. Who knew the American dream could cost so much?
Joey exchanged a comfortable life, running the family business in the Nashville suburbs, to engage in mission halfway around the world. The Lankford’s left behind family, friends, and the familiar in search of a unique calling–economic development among South Africa’s poorest communities. Fulfilled is one family’s daring plunge into freedom, not by running away from it all, but by running directly into total surrender to God. Joey Lankford and his family found that in order gain it all, you have to be willing to lose it all;in order to really live, first you have to die.There’s still a life that’s both full and fulfilling, a life spent in wild pursuit of God.
