I received a copy of Your Blueprint for Life in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are mine.
Subtitle: How to Align Your Passion, Gifts and Calling With Eternity in Mind
Thomas Nelson (2015)
Religion/Christian Life/Personal Growth
Summary: Your Blueprint for Life is a guide to a Christ-centered life that is full of joy in all areas of your life: spiritually, financially, relationally, physically and professionally. It includes practical advice for discovering your passions, gifts and callings. Find out what your purpose is.
This is the book you want to read if you don’t know your purpose in life, or you feel like you are running in circles and not making any real progress in your life.
Michael Kendrick goes through the different facets of your life and gives you guidance on how to improve that area. The areas are spiritual, relational, physical, financial and career. Even before that though he walks you through the thought that God brought you into this world for a reason and if you can just figure out what it is and follow it, you will live a joy filled life.
“Do you remember that I talked about the “hole in your soul” in the first chapter? That’s the longing that sometimes makes you feel incomplete and as if God made a mistake when He knit you together in your mother’s womb. God strategically placed this hole inside you as a gift, because He wants to fill it when you have an intimate relationship with Him and you glorify Him. Developing your Blueprint for Life will help fill this hole.” – pg 26
All throughout the book there are bits of scripture that is related to the topic at hand. These bits are labeled Eternal Perspective Scripture. The inclusion of this scripture helped remind me that this advice isn’t just from Michael but from God.
If you are feeling lost, this book will help you find meaning.
