This Workbook provides coaching clients with an introduction to life purpose discovery, plus over 60 reflection exercises for finding your destiny. The reader walks through a four-part model of life purpose (Design, Passion, Preparation and Calling), identifies the destiny clues in each area, and then combines them into life mission, life purpose and life vision statements. Covering everything from personality type to value statements to life messages, this book is a wonderful resource for the life coaching process. You can even use it to offer life purpose courses or workshops in your church with our life purpose course outlines.

"Thank you for your investment, not only in coaching, but in the Kingdom. As you have written to train coaches, you have corrected theological errors, and given hope to those who have had significant strongholds within their minds. I am one who has learned and had my eyes opened through your writing." G.B, Senior Pastor
