Publisher's Summary

If God can take David - the invisible eighth son of a forgotten family - and turn him into a king, just imagine what magnificent plans he has for redeeming your life.
David was born a number eight - a hidden gem, often overlooked and undervalued by everyone except for God. For David, being a number eight seemed like a curse until the day God transformed him from the unknown eighth son of Jesse into the much-honored king of Israel.
When God sends out an invitation to greatness, his directions don't always make sense to us. You may feel like the most invisible, broken number eight out there, but God sees your hidden value and is growing you for better things. David didn't know it, but his time as a simple shepherd with a dull future did not go unnoticed by God. In David's darkest moments, he was cultivating the kind of gifts, wisdom, and leadership he would need to become a king. Even when you're an underdog in the eyes of the world, God is working behind the scenes to develop you into a king or queen.

Answers to many questions

This was such a profound book for me because it answered questions that I had resolved to just trust God with the answers. I have such a better understanding of how much my childhood was a blessing for me. Why I have this heart that I have, why I have had to travel this, sometimes, treacherous journey. The regrets are much less; in fact, my entire perspective changed: 8 is great!
