Living Your Purpose with Passion

live with purpose and passion

If you’ve ever struggled to find purpose and meaning in life you know how defeating that can feel. Even as Christians sometimes, we can get so buried under the stress and pressure of life that we feel stuck, burned out and frustrated. Maybe you have a past that you can’t seem to shake, thoughts that limit your courage, or relationships that hold you back from living the full and free life God has for you. 

I struggle sometimes with limiting thoughts and a lack of courage. Here’s my prayer for both of us.

God, what is holding us back? What lie about ourselves are we believing? Are we discounting Your power and presence? Are we limiting ourselves by thinking we have to get there all on our own? Please help us have more faith in You. Let Your wind fill our sails. Let Your voice break through the mental chatter that hinders our courage. Severe the ties we have with the past and negative words spoken over us. Let Your glorious strength fill the deep caverns carved in our hearts by doubt and fear. Amen

I’m a part of an upcoming interview series, Learn to Dream Again: Let Go of Your Past and Live Your Purpose with Passion. I talk about how I learned to live my own God given passions and purpose. Hear the inspiring stories of over 25 Christian experts (including me) on their journey to living a life of purpose. I’m so eager to learn from the experiences of the other speakers!

No matter where you have been you will be inspired to live the beautiful life God has for you. You can sign up here to join me –  Learn to Dream Again.

Speaking of living your purpose, I’m pressing ahead with my next book, Hope for Your Marriage: 31 War Room Prayers. Here’s the cover.  I hope you love it as much as I do.

I’ve completed the writing of the book. While it is being edited, several authors and experts are reading and sharing their endorsements. I’m so grateful to God for the encouraging feedback they are sending me. Below are a few of their comments.

Jennifer’s words will draw you close to the heart of God and your husband.  It’s an awesome resource for every wife! –Jolene Engle, author of Wives of the Bible

Sometimes it can be difficult for women to know what to pray and exactly how to pray in an effective, productive way. Jennifer makes intimate, meaningful prayer with the Lord a bit easier by providing 31 model prayers about essential spiritual topics for wives. The book is packed with scripture to back up each prayer which gives even more power to prayer as women absorb the truth of the Word of God into their hearts and minds. This is the kind of book that I believe women will want to go through over and over again as they learn to pray more effectively. I would highly recommend this book to any believing Christian wife. – April Cassidy, author of The Peaceful Wife: Living in Submission to Christ as Lord

Please continue to pray for me as I wrap up the details and learn now to self-publish the book.
