This compelling story of a top-earning NFL center and his family who walked away from it all to follow God's call to alleviate hunger as farmers, a life they knew absolutely nothing about, illustrates the sacrifice and ultimate reward of obedience to our heavenly Father, even when it may not make sense.
Jason Brown, NFL lineman, had everything he could ever want. He was the highest-paid center in the game, lived a life of luxury, and was cheered on by millions of viewers each week. Then, in 2012, Jason heard a call from God that changed it all. Jason turned his back on his lucrative career in football to pursue a new dream: ending hunger. Through third-party mismanagement and bad luck, Jason lost a majority of his savings from the NFL, the same money he'd planned to use to launch his new career. He desperately needed the miracle that soon came.
Today, Jason and his family run First Fruits Farms in Louisburg, North Carolina, a state where one in four children don't know where their next meal will come from. Since 2014, the Browns have donated over 1.6 million servings of fresh produce to their community. Their motto: Never stop giving. Never stop loving. Never stop growing.
With powerful and deeply personal insight, Centered is an inspiration to embrace the joy of following where God leads, no matter how crazy it sounds.
