Book Review Your Beautiful Purpose

Your Beautiful Purpose: Discovering and Enjoying What God Can Do Through YouYour Beautiful Purpose: Discovering and Enjoying What God Can Do Through You by Susie Larson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Description of book:
"Listeners to Susie Larson's radio show and women she meets at events across the country tell her the same thing: I want to do something meaningful for God, but I don't know what to do, or how.

Drawing on her own hard-earned experiences, Larson shows readers how to overcome insecurities, busyness, and other obstacles in order to focus their gifts and passions on their unique God-assignment. With biblical insights and inspiring stories from a variety of women, this action-oriented guide will speak to every woman who has felt a nudge from God--from the visionary who wants to end poverty to the empty-nest mom who feels called to help the young single mother next door."

I really really loved this book. I plan on using it as the next Bible Study for our ladies group this summer. Each chapter ends with study questions as well as discussion starters. The bullet points on the back cover of this book describe it perfectly. 1 Discern the best use of your time and gifts. 2. Confidently pursue God's unique desires for you and 3. Stretch your faith and deepen your impact. Lay down lesser commitments and lay hold of God's beautiful purpose for your life.

I see that there is an accompanying teaching DVD that goes along with this book and I also plan on purchasing that for our group.

It was perfectly timed for the season of my life. I don't believe I am alone as a woman in her 40s still searching for my purpose! This book really does feel like an encouraging note from a friend, inspiring me to be all I was meant to be in Christ Jesus.
