Dit boek is heel bemoedigend! Het geeft je praktische inzichten in wat je kan doen en hoe God jouw leven gebruikt tot zijn eer. Het is prachtig om gewezen te worden op verschillende gebieden in je leven waar je verandering kan aanbrengen om nog meer in de bestemming die Hij voor je heeft te komen.
Ik heb dit boek al twee keer gelezen en zelfs voor een vriendin gekocht. Er wordt wijsheid gesproken met bevestiging vanuit het Woord van God. Ik moet eerlijk zeggen dat je niet meteen jouw persoonlijke "purpose" ontdekt, maar dat je wel een globaal beeld krijgt van waarom wij gecreëerd zijn.
