This unique visual tool, written from a biblical perspective, uses visual maps to help you explore the truth that God created you for a purpose and helps you invite Him into the process of reviewing your past, assessing your present and continuing to walk with Him into the future. Using ancient Christian spiritual practices and coaching questions, the authors help you reflect on your inner desires and find the hand of God in daily life. This guide is prayerful, biblical and designed to draw the user toward God through exploring key questions about purpose.

You'll map out key life purpose indicators like your peak experiences, desires and longings, and the life rhythms that energize you and give you life, all in a fun and easy-to-understand visual format. A Facilitator's Guide is also available for leading a group discovery process using this workbook. If you'd like to buy in bulk, call for special group pricing.
