Item description for Direction: Discernment for the Decisions of Your Life by Cheri Cowell...

Overview
Trying to determine what direction to take in life is not always easy. As Christians, we pray and read scripture, seeking God's guidance for the choices we make. But sometimes, trying to guess God's will can feel a little bit like being a game show contestant-hoping we've picked the right showcase door. With so many to choose from, discerning which door of opportunity is the best can be difficult. Is there a way to really know which door to choose? Author Cheri Cowell believes that God offers us many doors to choose from as we transition through life. And she understands how confusing it can be to decide which door is best. She explains that the key to making confident decisions is to avoid trying to guess God's "will" and focus instead on discerning God's "way". In Direction, Cowell presents six questions to ask when it comes to decision-making. She examines each question and shares examples of how others-from Bible times to present day-used these questions to find God's way in the story of their lives. Through observation and exploration, Cowell shows how determining your own answers to these important questions will guide you in the discernment process. From career options to medical decisions to relationship questions, you'll learn how to know for sure what door to choose. Direction includes reflection questions for individual or group study. It will provide you with The wisdom to make confident decisions, the understanding to enrich your prayer life, the eagerness to know God better, and the willingness to take more risks in life's most important decisions.

Reviews - What do customers think about Direction: Discernment for the Decisions of Your Life?

Clear Direction  May 27, 2008
I needed this book! As one who is constantly second-guessing myself as to God's good, pleasing, and perfect will, I found direction within its pages. Instead of simply telling me what to do, Cheri Cowell leads me in the steps to drawing closer to God and knowing Him more intimately--which then allow me to hear His voice. The chapter on "Obstacles to Hearing from God" was especially helpful by pointing out the stumbling blocks in my own life that prevent me from discerning His will. I look forward seeing results as I continue to apply the prinicples within this book!
 
Helpful Book  Mar 9, 2008
This was a very interesting book on how have discernment in making decisions for your life. It was different than most books on God's will and the process the author reveals is very thought provoking and it made a lot of sense to me. I have some decision coming up and while I'm not ready to make those decisions yet, this book is helping me with the process.

I'm going to keep this one in my library so I can refresh memory as more important life choices come my way! I highly recommend it.
 
Direction, what a perfect title  Feb 9, 2008
"This is one of, if not, the best inspirational book I have ever read, it puts into perspective, how God intends for us to communine with Him.
How He desires for us to return to the creatures He created us to be, before the fall of Adam and Eve.
I have had the influence of the Nazarene Doctrine, in my life since birth, and never have I heard the areas covered in this book, described so easy to understand.
If you read this and apply any of it to your own life, you will certainly become closer to being one with Him."

Jon Parsons, Lake Anna, VA
