Some Living-the-Dream Reading
This idea of living the dream is stirring up some conversation amongst us. I have enough e-mails and one-on-ones coming in and coming up that I’m falling a little behind. But I love hearing what God is putting on your hearts! It might be that some of you are interested in doing a little more reading/pondering on this topic. If so here are three books that you might find beneficial.
1) Chazown by Craig Groeschel. The word chazown means vision. Craig leads the reader through a process of looking at core values, spiritual gifts and past experiences to determine your vision for life.
2) Get a Life by Reggie McNeal. This book is meant to be a very practical conversational guide to discovering the life God has planned for us.
3) The Cure for a Common Life by Max Lucado. Written in Max Lucado’s typical story-rich, conversational style, this book is filled with practical insights in the journey of discovering your sweet spot in life.
None of these books try to give you a “discover-your-dream-in-three-easy-steps” approach. But each one has great practical insights and good probing questions. Any of the three would be a good beginning read on living the dream. In fact I have 5 copies of Get a Life that I will give away to 5 people who…
#1) WILL READ IT
#2) ARE INVESTED/PASSIONATE ABOUT FIGURING OUT GOD’S DREAM FOR THEIR LIFE.

I have been trying to unwrap God’s dream for my life for years. I am stuck in the common life and am eager to get out. Sometimes I think I am looking for a magic path and need to just put one foot in front of the other. I am interested in what Max L. has to say. Thanks for all you do and are in Christ Jesus. You lead us on.

I would love to read “Get a Life” and if you still have a copy remaining when we meet, I’d be grateful for one.
I definitely feel that I’m someone who needs some help figuring out God’s dream for my life. If you still have a copy, I’d love to read “Get a Life”. thanks
I am so very glad that I came across this blog Dan…thank you so much for making reference to these 3 books.
