The Purpose Driven Life #Christian #BookClub

Why am I here?  What should I do with my life?  What was I put on this earth to do?  What happens to me when I die?  This can’t be all there is to life, can it?

If you are anything like me, you’ve asked these questions to a friend, yourself and/or God.  I’ve also asked almost every smart person I know.  And lots of people at bars.

I’ve gotten a variety of responses.

Lately, I’ve decided to ask the smartest EVER- God.  In seeking my life’s purpose, I’m positioning myself to hear Him through His Word.

“Just tell me what to do”, I’ve said to The Lord.  “I get it.  I can’t find what I am looking for outside of you.  Please help me to do your Your will.”

Well… when you ask God what He wants you to do with your life- be prepared that it might not be the things for which you would have hoped.  It hasn’t been for me.  I am struggling with this on the daily.

In that vein, my video production peer and pal, Monika Rydzewski and I are hosting a walk through of The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren.  Included in this book is a 40-day challenge.  There are associated exercises and daily videos.  If you want to go “all in” on this like I do- it’s a decent chunk of time.  You are making a pretty good commitment for at least 40 days.

But aren’t you worth it?  Weren’t you created by The Maker of Heaven and earth?  Didn’t He bless you with wonderful gifts?

That’s what I thought.

So…  Please join us!  You have a couple of options for participation.

  • Every Wednesday night at 7PM/CT, I will host a Google Hangout for anyone who wants to discuss what they have experienced as a result of the challenge.
  • Monika and I will share our experiences daily in her Connect-Inspire-Grow Facebook group and you are invited to join in the discussion there, and well as the comments below.
  • Signing up for my newsletter, will keep you in the loop via email.

If you know that you were made for more, but don’t know where to start, make a decision to ask God with us.

I’m pretty sure He knows the answer.

The Purpose Driven Life is not only The #1 New York Times Bestseller, it is the most read book in the world outside of the Bible.  It’s good stuff.  You can buy the book on Amazon (affiliate link) for $7.99, check it out from a library or borrow from a friend.

Okay, let’s get started.  Let me know you are joining the challenge (or cheering) in the comments below!
