Introducing a memorable vocabulary and an easy-to-use practical framework, More equips readers to not only embark on a journey of discovering their unique personal calling but to take real, meaningful action to fulfill it.
More meets Christians where they’re at, acknowledging the roots of their discontent and demonstrating how to move from inspiration and desire into action. Church strategist and ministry activator Todd Wilson shows how all believers can live more abundant lives around the uniqueness of how they were made and what they are called to do.
More enables readers to answer three of the most important and profound questions we all naturally ask:
· Who am I created to be?
· What am I created to do?
· Where am I to be best positioned to do it?
The integrated answers to these key questions—the BE-DO-GO of a person’s life—represent the core dimensions of personal calling. Inspiring and challenging, More gives readers permission and encouragement to engage in the journey God has solely for them.
From the Author:
In The Purpose Driven Life, Rick Warren tapped into the deep desire people have to live lives of significance. The book was inspirational in stirring the discontent of the heart.The overwhelming success of the book proved that people are not afraid of spiritual conversations, especially when the topic hits close to home.
In The Call: Finding and Fulfilling the Central Purpose of Your Life,Os Guinness provided a solid theological and historical foundation for calling and reminded us that God's calling was never intended to have a sacred /secular divide where only certain people were called to do His work and where only parts of life are sacred.
In The Master Plan of Evangelism, Dr. Robert Coleman reminds us that Jesus' mandate for making disciples is the core mission of the church and that disciple making is to be a lifestyle for those who follow Jesus. The book shows us the simplicity of Jesus' method of discipleship.
In Halftime: Moving from Success to Significance, Bob Buford taps into the restless discontent experienced by so many people. The book provides a compelling narrative and vocabulary for people seeking to move from success to significance.
All four of these men have served as mentors and / or friends who've spoken into and shaped the writing of my book More. In spite of my cynicism about writing (I never wanted to be an author), I felt a strong call from God to write this book on calling. Its not a project I would have chosen on my own to do. The journey of writing took over five years.
Early in the writing process Os Guinness (author of The Call: Finding and Fulfilling the Central Purpose of Your Life) challenged me with the question, "Are you just going to write another self help book?" He noted that so much that is written on calling is simply "self-help" to fuel our self-centerdness and need for personal fulfillment. His question slowed me down and forced a more disciplined approach and research on the topic.
Also early in the process, Bob Buford (author of Halftime: Moving from Success to Significance) challenged me with the idea of living in my sweet spot. As an engineer, the idea of a person having a sweet spot was intriguing. It turns out there are 1,000s of sweet spots in nature. God has designed them everywhere in nature. So why not people? I'm convinced the restless discontent most people experience is a direct consequence of not living in God's sweet spot of their design.
This book More: Find Your Personal Calling and Live Life to the Fullest Measure is intended to help people turn their discontent and questions regarding purpose and significance into meaningful action through a practical framework of calling.
People are hungry for significance. Beyond their desire for career success or family, they want to make a lasting impact for good. An exploration of calling resonates deeply with most people, but most miss the idea that its for them. Instead, they mistakenly believe that calling is for vocational ministry and have never intentionally pursued the fullness of their identity. As a result, most are not living within the uniqueness of their calling. They live continually with a tension, sensing that God has something more for them than what their journey currently offers.
"I want my life to be significant and meaningful. I know there is so much more than accumulating more treasures here on earth." "I know I have a purpose with unique good works and a capacity for so much more." "I need help in moving forward from inspiration to action." "I need more than what the inspirational books and conferences have to offer. I need a practical framework and tools to help me discover and engage my unique personal calling"
My goal in writing More is to help people acknowledge the roots of their discontent and move from inspiration and desire into action. They can live more abundant lives around the uniqueness of how they were made and what they were called to do. More provides a memorable vocabulary and a practical framework that are easy for any person to use in embarking on a journey of discovering their unique personal calling and making progress in answering the nagging questions of purpose that we all face. At the heart of this BE-DO-GO framework are the questions: Who am I created to BE? What am I made to DO? Where am I to do it (GO)?
