Finding your Chazown: Review of the Book Chazown by Craig Groeschel

The first thing I thought and heard from others when I mentioned this book at what it was about was, " oh another purpose for your life book." Needless to say, I wasn't very excited about reading the book. That all changed once I actually began to delve into the book.
This book does for me what I wanted from the Purpose Driven Life. I don't want to down play that book in any way, but this book gave me the answers to what I really wanted to know. I wanted to know specifics. I wanted to know what my job was in life, and I was I to know I was on the right track.
The cover of the book contains this statement, " Define your vision. Pursue your passion. Live your life on purpose." This book helps you do exactly that. This book is an excellent tool and resource for anybody, whether or not you think you have your life pegged to be exactly what it should be. This book takes you step by step into how to take the commands God has given us as His creation and Christians living for him and combine those with the passions and desires He has put in us through our upbringing, personalities, and experiences. It even helps you to figure out what those are! Then it shows you how you can drive your life to life out those passions and put a Gods HUGE purpose for your life to work. What I love the most about this book is how concrete it is and the resources it provides. Its easy to understand. Its clear and concise. It does however give you homework to do. They are questions you have to answer about yourself to help you figure out exactly who you are and what your purpose is. I love the online resources as well that are FREE! There activities to help with each chapter. There is even a gifts test. Whether you think you have life right where you want it, or are struggling to figure out where you fit in the big picture I recommend this book. I'm not going to tell you it will answer all your questions, or that you will agree with it all, but I definitely think that it will get you thinking more about your life and how it fits into the big scheme of things.

I received this book free from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers for review purposes.
