Women crave a sense of purpose. They yearn to know that their efforts will impact other people's lives. Experts urge them to say "no" to the things that drain or distract them-yet, even as women struggle to maintain a sense of control, they long to discover the calling to which their hearts must joyously respond: "Yes!" That longing, explains author Jan Johnson, can be satisfied only when a woman discovers-and lives out-her God-given purpose. God's call on a woman's life isn't meant to remain a mystery. More than a role, a spiritual gift, or a job she loves, finding her purpose is about knowing who she is: God's woman in this world. Within these pages readers will discover what purpose in life is, why they need it, and how they can find it. Best of all, each woman will simplify her life by focusing on the things that matter most to her and God, as she becomes the woman he desires her to be.

About the Author:

Jan Johnson is the author of several books, including Enjoying the Presence of God, Creating a Safe Place, and Listening to God. She has published nearly a thousand magazine articles in a variety of magazines, including Woman’s Day, Parenting, Discipleship Journal, Christianity Today, Focus on the Family, WorldVision, and Weavings. Jan, who lives in Southern California, is also a frequent retreat and conference speaker.

From Publishers Weekly:

Believing that purpose comes from what he sees as our primary reason for living?to know and love God?Johnson asks the reader to look beyond social roles and career choices, and that we should acknowledge our passions and gifts as responses to God's designs for us. Johnson notes, "What makes a job the 'Lord's work' is the purpose and heart of the person doing it, not the task itself." Discovering our purpose is a part of our spiritual journey and not simply a task to be fulfilled, and it is a lifelong process, the author says. "As God leads us into a life of greater trust, integrity, and selflessness, doors will open and we'll be equipped for tasks that once scared us." We gain courage to search for God's will and desires as we learn that our purposes and His will are united. According to Johnson, a strong prayer life, deep Bible reading and participation in a close religious community are the tools that help us realize our purpose in life. Johnson closes each chapter with a section of questions to contemplate, an experiment in listening prayer and some Bible passages to ponder. While this is an excellent book for study groups, individuals will also benefit from its valuable lessons.
