Reviews - What do customers think about Living Life on Purpose?
Lacking - but may have potential with revisions! Apr 2, 2003
I believe the author has good intentions and the seven main principles do look good on paper. However, I found that trying to work this plan into my life simply created one more headache. (I'm sure some might hint that the downfall was my own inadequacy rather than that of the principles!)
I also have difficulty with the amount of time this author spends, whether in books or in a conference settings, on telling her own personal tales. Autobiographies have their place, but should be labeled as such.
This particular book might be used along with other resources, to obtain the results it hopes to lead to: organizational skills, defining life purpose, etc., but is not adequate in and of itself at this point.
A Wonderful Study Guide! Feb 5, 2002
Do you plan your vacation just so things go smoothly? Have you ever thought of applying this type of planning to your everyday life? Better yet, how about applying God's plan to your life?
The author leads you through developing a life plan step-by-step and through prayer. Hopefully, using prayers and analysis you can discover within yourself what God has mapped out for you, and perhaps get your life just a little more organized. There are sections for you to think on where your foundation lies, your purpose (don't we all wonder that from time-to-time), your mission, ministry, etc. She poses questions for you to ponder as you work through each section, and then suggests you note your responses in a journal (There is one available for this book, or you can use your own notebook).
Don't believe for a second that this is a dry, analytical type of book. This author weaves her very own personality, life and humor into this book for discovering a life plan, and of course there are plenty of Biblical references to guide you to developing your plan. There are even appendices and examples to assist you. Perhaps you are a person who works better in a group or with a partner to help keep yourselves on track. If that is the case, there is even a group Bible study format in the back.
This wonderful little book is going to find itself read until its covers fall off here at my house. I just know I missed something the first time around, or something will read a little different the next time I open this book.
