Nonfiction Book Award Status: Gold
When Larry Fowler became a Navy SEAL BUD/S trainee, he could barely swim. Nevertheless, he somehow survived “Hell Week” and graduated Basic Underwater Demolition SEAL training Class 89.
Larry says it takes the same grit, courage, and tough-as-nails perseverance as a Navy SEAL in training to live the life of a true Christian. If he can survive Hell Week, you can survive and thrive where you’re at right now. In his inspirational book, Dare to Live Greatly, he reveals how faith is continuous, action-packed, and an adventure.
L.C. (Larry) Fowler was born and raised in the southern United States. He gave up college to follow his dream of attending Basic Underwater Demolition SEAL (BUD/S) training and become a famed member of the Navy Special Warfare community. The only problem was, someone forgot to tell him you had to be able to swim.
Despite that seemingly insurmountable issue, Larry went on to successfully graduate from BUD/S Class 89 and was selected by his peers at Navy basic training as their “Honor Man.” Since then he has launched more than a hundred websites and built two software and marketing companies from scratch.
