The Purpose Driven Life is a wonderful book. I read the book last year along with my entire church of about 2,000 people. There is also a journal that you can purchase for under $10. This journal is perfect for writing the thoughts for the day. I also used a highlighter to highlight the scriptures in my bible. This was a wonderful book for everyone and it can be read twice. Our church will be reading it again soon.

A think the lord actually used this book as a "sign" to guide me. I ordered it today. Me and H have had a real spiritual journey in past week, with a lot of why questions.
I was going through turmoil trying to decide between two jobs on top of that. I was hearing about this book, from my mom and sister. I kept it in the back of my mind.
I had kept both jobs and was trying to decide. I worked at one last week, and the week before juggled the two.
Well: Last week, the job I was going to, I saw so much sin. People were all going home after work to just get drunk, because they were mad. I felt a certain element there, that I did not fit in with.
The week before: I was at the other job and I felt real peace about it, and Love when I went in to be with management. (It is a christian affiliated facility) This morning, I talked to the boss on the phone, and out of casual conversation, she told me that she only works part time because her full time work with H is evangalism. I told her Awesome. She said the purpose driven life really has been helping her. I told her I was ordering it anyhow, and about some of my background. She says once I am into it more, feel free to call so we can really discuss it if I want.
I made my decision about the jobs. I was well informed in more than just that, but I think that God led the way, and I am getting a big raise out of it.

Blended,

That is a great praise report. We all need to here the "rewards" that come from walking a Christian life. Thank you for the encouragement that takes us farther on our journey with the Lord. No man is an island, and we must lift each other up!!!!

God Bless

I FINISHED THE BOOK, in 40 DAYS. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="images/icons/grin.gif" />

First commitment I have kept in a LONG time! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="images/icons/frown.gif" />

I called my pastor and left him a message, that I wanted to give back to the church, for thier prayers and support, by leading a 40-week gathering on this book. I will call him later today to discuss with him.

Today, this evening, I start the "Power of a Praying Husband".

My fellow Purposefuls,
I would still like to have our weekly phone call to support eachother in our faith and fellowship and lives. Let me know if you want to continue these?
Also, S&C, Hurting..., Hopeful, and otehrs, let me know if you would like to gather on a 30 minute+ telecall to support eachother.

God's Blessings,
