Confronting the Labels That Limit Us
Where to Purchase
If you're a millennial, you've likely been called lazy, broken, entitled, lost--and many other negative things. Words are powerful. Even when they aren't true, they can begin to shape our perceptions of ourselves and the decisions we make. Yet the only labels that really matter to our generation are the ones with which God originally designated us.
What does God call us? Sons and daughters.
We are called to change the world and make a huge impact for the kingdom, but we can't do that if we allow ourselves to be limited by the labels we hear every day. As a positive voice in this generation, Arden Bevere calls us to
· know what it means to be a son or daughter of God
· see how God uses the seemingly negative things in our lives for good
· take control of our thoughts and words and replace them with God's thoughts and words
· find freedom from addiction, fear, doubts, regrets, and more
Your life is not an accident, a disappointment, or an inconvenience to God. It's time to redefine, embrace, and walk in your true identity as his beloved child who will do great things in his name.
"Oftentimes, standing between us and our destiny are lies from the enemy about who we are and what we're capable of. Redefined will help you identify those lies and replace them with the truth of who you are in Christ so that you can step fully into all he has destined you to be."--Christine Caine, bestselling author; founder, A21 and Propel Women
"God doesn't label us; he calls us. This book will help you completely redefine what you have been called to do and who you are called to be."--Jentezen Franklin, senior pastor, Free Chapel; New York Times bestselling author

"In every generation God calls new leaders to share his love, power, and truth to those around them. Arden Bevere has answered that call, and in Redefined: Confronting the Labels That Limit Us, he extends it to millennials and anyone longing to make a positive difference in our world. Using contemporary examples and the timeless truth of God's Word, Redefined strips away false assumptions and mistaken generalizations and reminds us of our true identities as God's sons and daughters."

"Arden, you have stood up and taken notice of the cry of this generation. You are giving them the keys to overcome the labels that have been placed on them to keep them small and keep them from changing their world. We truly believe that this book is a necessary tool that needs to be placed in the hands of every young person who is struggling to know why they are here and what they are meant to do. When we know our identity in Christ, the labels that are given to us have no power. Thank you for taking the time to write these words. I know that because of you, this generation can and will change the world for the better as they respond to their calling in Christ."
Pastor Henry and Alex Seeley, cofounders of The Belonging Co.
"When Arden asked me to read the first chapter of Redefined, my expectation was to hear the words of a millennial who loves God. However, I was overwhelmed with amazement by what I read. I heard a young man, who is very much in touch with the challenges of his generation but speaks to them with the wisdom of a fifty-year-old. I was inspired, encouraged, and challenged, and my faith was built to new levels. I was in awe, for I received life-transforming revelation knowledge that could only be given by the Holy Spirit.
Arden is a leader, who loves God deeply, passionately loves his family, and is tender and compassionate to all he comes in contact with. The fruit of the Spirit that stands out in his life is faithfulness.
I feel privileged to be his father, but I know he is a gift to the body of Christ at large. I know your life will be changed not only by the words of his message but also by the strength of this young man's heart."
John Bevere, bestselling author and minister; cofounder of Messenger International
"Arden has labored tirelessly over this message for years. Redefined is more than a book; it is a clarion call to a generation who knows they are destined for something more and won't be constrained by labels that suggest something less. Each chapter debunks another word that has sought to systematically undermine all that God has woven within his sons and daughters."
Lisa Bevere, New York Times bestselling author
"Arden Bevere brings a new and fresh perspective to an ancient yet still applicable truth. The world attempts to label us by our actions but God calls us according to his plans. This message is for everyone who has allowed the wrong labels to keep them from fulfilling their destiny. I believe this book has the power to change your life."
Justin Dailey, lead pastor, Action Church
