God wants to use everything about you - your past, present, hopes, dreams, hurts, and hang-ups - to achieve his ultimate purposes in your life. Filled with practical how-tos and personal stories of women whose lives have been transformed by following these proven principles, Pathway to Purpose for Women is an exciting journey for becoming the woman God created you to be!
Brazelton, who works with Rick Warren as director of women's Bible studies at Saddleback Church, has spent years helping women discover their life purpose. She pours her passion into this book, designed to help women find meaning in life. While each chapter focuses on another stepping stone in the journey to purpose, there are several overarching themes: every daily task is part of God's purpose; ultimate meaning requires obedience and complete surrender to God, and God has a vision for each woman's life. Brazelton's aim is to get every reader to find this vision, this personalized way of leading people from emptiness to surrender to significance in Christ. A vision should be big: a highly amplified life calling and focused destiny. However, Brazelton offers little biblical foundation for the idea that every woman should expected to seek the same kind of vision that Sarah, Deborah or Esther received. Thus, Brazelton may end up creating disillusionment where she hoped to resolve it. However, many readers are sure to enjoy her friendliness and vulnerability, and welcome her advice from years of experience guiding women. (Apr.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
