About the book:

Your roadmap to a life of eternal impact

Too many of us settle for a listless life of mundane routine. We long to discover a greater purpose for our lives, but we don't know how. Dr. Robert Jeffress has an encouraging message for those looking for something more: God not only wants us to enjoy an extraordinary life but has provided a roadmap for doing so.

In this inspiring and motivating book, Dr. Jeffress reveals seven secrets from Elijah that result in a life marked by significance, satisfaction, and success, including

· discovering your unique purpose in life
· waiting on God's timing
· learning how to handle bad days
· and more

For the overworked parent feeling trapped at home, the businessperson feeling unfulfilled in a stagnant career, the Christian worker ministering in obscurity--for anyone who wonders if there's more to life--God's Word reveals seven secrets for experiencing a truly extraordinary life.

My review:

This was a very interesting book with a lot of wisdom.  I thought the chapter about discovering your purpose was eye-opening, especially that what you desire to do might be what God wants you to do; if you're in a growing and personal relationship with God your desires are being conformed to His.  The chapter about waiting on God's timing explained different reasons God may have for us to wait and really made me think and reminded me there is a purpose to it all.  It was also encouraging to read about how to handle bad days, some ways we make them worse and how to combat those actions or attitudes.  It was fascinating learning more about Elijah and I loved the personal stories he told from his own life and the lives of others.  I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to make a difference and live a life of purpose!

I received this book from Baker Books.  I was not compensated for this review.  All opinions are my own.
