As a man who is still processing the abrupt departure of my wife from our marriage of almost 17 years, it’s been a struggle for me to regain my bearings, to put myself back together and to try making some sense out of what happened to me … and to us. Through it all, there have been family members, friends, members of the mosque that I attend and co-workers who would tell me: “You’ll be alright,” “It’s her loss,” “You’re best days are ahead,” “God has a plan for you,” … and so forth. I sincerely ...more

I started highlighting from the very first page of this book. I believe this book was written from a place of surrender to the Holy Spirit because only He could have given her the words to cause such major disruption and transformation at the same time in my life.
Every page breathes new life and speaks to and awakens the woman inside of me. I dont think I have read any book that has spoken to me so loudly and awakened me to my calling like believe bigger has.

You don’t want to put this book down, because you can literally feel your beliefs and future changing. Marshawn breaks purpose all the way down in a way that is easy to digest and finally get. This book is anointed.

Believe Bigger for me is the prized possession of eternity, placed in a time capsule and sent into existence for an on schedule arrival. The voice of God is so evident in the pages of this book. When the stories and experiences of someone else make you say thank you as you read them, it’s clear that Marshawn Evans-Daniels truly got it right. When you can connect the suffering of someone else to the season of your own birthing, you realize that your life’s purpose is necessary. Your season of tur ...more

“Get out of my own way.” “Live intentionally.” These phrases are finally given some practical and spiritual gravitasse in “Believe Bigger: Discover the Path to Your Life Purpose.”

The book could have been titled “The Purpose Map” because it’s primary focus is not so much the path to your purpose - but your actual purpose. And it hinges on 5 development stages - outlined as a map - to get you from an existence of doing to being in a way that feels concrete.

The author, Marshawn Evans-Daniels, is a

It took me a while to finish, but when I started it, it was everything I needed. And now that I finished it, especially before the new year, it's more than everything I needed. This book has everything. Is everything. I don't even know how to put it all in words. Just read it lol

There’s really only one word that I can use to describe this book: rich. I’d consider myself an avid reader, particularly of the Christian/Self-Help genre. Of all the books I’ve read, this book is by far the most engaging, relevant, and with the most substance. Not only do your turn each page inspired, but you’re also given actionable steps and points of reflection for your life.

I immediately connected with Marshawn within the first few pages. I won’t be a spoiler, but many of the things that sh

“Disappointment does not disqualify us, it anoints us. Doubt is what disqualifies us.”

Believe Bigger is line after line wisdom filled (just like the title of this review). I found myself highlighting, underlining, screenshotting, and shouting throughout the book. It was one of those reads that I found myself sneaking to find extra time to read just one more word.

The book spoke to me in ways that I would never have imagined. It was real, relatable, and raw. I appreciated that even when Marshawn

I am blown away! I felt as though I was literally reading parts of my life etched on the page. The only difference is that the insight she provides into her story and struggle and faith is strong and beyond words. I literally could not stop turning the page. I’m highlighting. I’m clutching my chest in agreement. I’m holding my breath wondering what happens next. I am just in awe of how Marshawn has been able to capture BELIEVE BIGGER from wilderness to winning and beyond.

Believer Bigger is a book that will provoke you to take a look at your journey through life with new eyes. It will cause you to view what you thought as a setback as a setup. Believe Bigger caused me to do some self introspection. I appreciate Marshawn’s heart. I appreciate her honesty and transparency. I appreciate her rawness. It’s very apparent that Marshawn has allowed God to use her in a mighty way through this book. I can appreciate my life’s journey because of wisdom that comes forth in t ...more

I was able to read Believe Bigger for free from Netgalley, the publisher and the author for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
The book came at the right moment for me. Everything Marshawn Evans Daniels was right on. It was very honest, revealing and helpful. Love the book and will continue to read her books.

I love to read books - specifically self-help books. But this is not your typical self-help book! It’s a fresh ELEVATED perspective on the journey we face as women and how our experiences both chaotic and soul stirring are meant to take us from our comfort zone to our glory zone. Believe Bigger is written by a woman who is leading an extraordinary life and operating an extraordinary business. She has graciously and lavishly poured her heart and KNOWLEDGE into every chapter.

I am writing this review to inform you of the importance of this book. It’s not the words in this book that are important to me. It’s the mere fact she made me question everything. The way that I view others, the way that I feel about my own story, and the way I view advice in general. The review below was my initial feelings after reading around four chapters of this book.

Disruption and destiny go together hand-in-hand. Purpose, however, is not supposed to be a mystery. God desires that we attain mastery.
I am a book reader (now also an audiobook listener too). I rarely come across books that give me the sister girl truth but still feels like love from a grandma's hug. Well, Believe Bigger is that book for me. I have been a fan of Marshawn Evans for several years now and although she has shared her journey over the years through videos, speaking engagements, and w

It is very difficult to put into words how this book has contributed to my spiritual journey. First, let me just say that I have an extensive list of books that I already wanted to read; however, this book came to me through God. Long story short, I was at a place where I normally wouldn’t be and I just so happened to relocate my seat from where I was previously sitting and waiting. Although I brought a book to read with me, there were magazines covering the table in front of me, in no particula ...more

My goodness I did not know Believe Bigger would be such a blessing to my life! I was totally in a place where I knew God was calling me to new heights, but did not know where to start. I came across Believe Bigger: Discover the Path to Your Life Purpose. From the time I picked up this book, my world has not been the same! The moment I began reading I knew this book was different from others I have read in the past. The message will have you screaming PREACH as you read every word!

This book has revolutionized my life! I received an early release copy of this book, and I promise you that my life is not the same. It’s so good that I have purchased 11 altogether to give to friends!! This book does not boast of some magic formula. It is not a prosperity gospel message.It is not your typical self-help book. This book teaches you to overcome fear by facing the disruptions in your life.

This book is a story about Marshawn's hardest moment -- finding out that she was no longer getting married to the man of her dreams and how she worked hard to find out what's God called for her. I enjoyed many aspects of things she had written down in her book but I also felt like there were some red flags that kept popping up. Yes, you can have a vision for your life and pray that God will be done but not everyone has been called to have millions of dollars. (Wealth and money are not what is al ...more

Sometimes it can be uncomfortable knowing that God has called you to a purpose BIGGER than you feel you're worthy of, and maybe one that you haven't even fully tapped into just know it's something BIGGER than yourself.

As soon as I opened Believe Bigger I could feel the passion and authenticity from every page...from every word! Marshawn has poured her complete heart into this amazing book, creating an transformational experience for any who gets their hands on it. Her transparency abo

BLESSED is exactly the feeling you will have after reading this book. Each page inspires you to do just what the title says, believe bigger. It motivates you to reflect on your life’s journey and gives you that push to discover the path to your purpose in life. It is genuinely written from Marshawn’s heart. You can just feel it!

In this book, Marshawn is as transparent as anyone can be in sharing her own personal journey which is important to me in being able to relate or feel a connection. Belie

This is a spiritual guide for 2018 and beyond for every Believer! This book teaches you how to apply the principles of the Bible and to position yourself to receive the promises of GOD through purpose. This is not another book about the generic tactics to find your purpose. This is the exact path we are destined to take to truly reach God’s ultimate plan and path for our life.

I’ve been waiting a LONG TIME for Believe Bigger! I’ve followed Marshawn Evans Daniels since 2012, and been inspired by her journey every step of the way. Believe Bigger tells the story of a woman who overcame herself and everything life threw at her to become the blessed, PURPOSE-full woman she is today. And the lessons and “split-rock moments” she had along the way are now paving the path for other women.

Believer Bigger is exactly what the title suggests. It contains life-giving words of truth and power that will encourage you to BELIEVE BIGGER and help you discover the path to your life purpose. As you read her words, it truly feels as if Marshawn is personally guiding you to awaken, align, and activate the God-given purpose for your life. In fact, she literally provides you with a “Purpose Map” with the intention to, as she says, “…walk beside you and help you gain greater clarity as to what y ...more

Wow! What a great book! This book caught my attention at the library and I really did not know what to expect, but I felt like I needed to read it. I’m so glad I did and I was sad to take it back today.

The author, Marshawn, gives some excellent advice on figuring out your talents and gifts. Her own story is told throughout the book so the reader can see how she stumbled upon her life mission. Not only will Believe Bigger help you realize your talents that you’ve forgotten, ignored, or never cons

"God qualifies the called, He doesn't call the qualified"


I could rave all day about this book.

The quote I posted is just one of many that have influenced the way I have looked at purpose. We are all called for a specific reason, and Marshawn has been given a gift to highlight the way the Lord looks at purpose.

I think what I loved most about this book is it is hands on. Marshawn includes places for you to actually think and answer deep thoughtful questions! Sh

If you want Bigger in your life; if you know you need to walk your purpose out to breath and if you were meant to write history Believe Bigger is for you!  Believe Bigger may suggest trying something new, outside of your comfort zone, so that God has a chance to show up in a new way.

​Marshawn Evans Daniels’ new book #BelieveBigger will help show you how to discover the path to your life purpose. I’ve made it through the first part of the book and I already have a list of quotes from what’s resonated with me.

One of the quotes that resonated with me is when Marshawn said, “And others need what God has exclusively placed within you.” But she didn’t stop there. She reminds the reader that, “... and no one can carry your calling but you.” If the book ended there, I’d feel like

There aren’t that many good books for people who have been banged up in life. This book spoke to me and makes me believe that I am still on a path to destiny and significance. “Embrace what happened to you, knowing that it really happened for you. It may have been devastating and downright evil, but God has a message about your magnificence hidden within.”

When I read “Believe Bigger”, I found myself stopping all the time to just engross myself in new dreams, ideas, and prayers. “Believe Bigge
