A Directional Guide for Living with Purpose and Knowing God’s Design for Your Life Using practical illustrations drawn from life, and selected biblical certainties, Barry D. Ham, Ph. D. helps the reader establish a pattern for living life to the fullest. Step by step Dr. Ham establishes foundational truths in a quest for meaning and purpose in life. He leads the reader into a life of adventure, significance, and meaning. He provides insight that replaces doubts with confidence, fulfillment, and discovery. A college professor, marriage, and family therapist, Dr. Ham is authentic. He writes with clarity and confidence. Dr. Ham asks and addresses the hard questions, foundational questions that need to be answered, questions on the meaning of life, the purpose of life, God’s will for an individual’s life, and how this impacts all of life. The book is divided into three parts: Love God with everything you have. Love your neighbor, and love yourself. I was challenged to become more intentional in my quest for direction as I enter into a new phase or season in my life journey. I am in the process of examining my focus and reestablishing my goals in areas of family, ministry, and recreational activities as I seek to know and pursue God’s purpose. A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.
