Your Beautiful Purpose by Susie Larson - Book Review

Cover Art

This book is subtitled "Discovering and Enjoying What God Can Do Through You."

From back cover copy: "Let God Breathe a Fresh Purpose Into Your Soul." We so want each day to matter-to serve God in big and small ways. But how, especially when everyday responsibilities, work, fears, and other obstacles get in the way? Like a trusted friend, Susie Larson shares practical, scriptural ways to overcome whatever keeps us from living fully in God's will. Susie will help you learn to:
  • Discern the best use of your time and gifts
  • Confidently pursue God's unique desires for you
  • Stretch your faith and deepen your impact
Respond today to that nudge in your spirit-that desire to use your gifts and passions more fully in God's work. Lay down lesser commitments and lay hold of God's beautiful purpose for your life.

My review: This is what I would call a 'pondering' book. It is a book to be read slowly and thoughtfully. Full of Scripture and scriptural principles, this book takes us straight to the heart of God. Susie also shares her personal experiences openly and honestly.

The book is divided into six sections:
  • Embrace Your Purpose
  • Trust God's Timing
  • Hear God's Voice
  • Believe God's Word
  • Walk by Faith
  • Take New Territory
Each section includes questions for study and discussion. A DVD study companion is also available.
I found this book confirmed things that I have been pondering. It is a book which I will turn to again and again, and pass around for friends to read. Beautifully written, I can't recommend this book highly enough.
