Have you ever wondered what the purpose of your life is? The secret to living a life that has meaning? The path you should take to achieve your purpose? Do you even believe you have a purpose? How about an intended destiny? Most, if not all, of us have asked (or will ask) ourselves these types of questions at some point in our lives–even if it is only at the end.
In his deeply personal memoir, Steve Darter asks himself the question: What is the purpose of my life? Using entertaining storytelling, Steve takes you on a journey of emotion, reflection, and insight that encourages you to think about how to live with more meaning, purpose, and success at any age–young, old, or in between.
Steve Darter has a distinguished career as a consultant, author, educator, and speaker. For more than forty years, he has counseled people, ranging from troubled teenagers to CEOs of Fortune 500 corporations, on work, career, and life issues. He uses his vast experience and wisdom to benefit all.

This book is a challenging book in that it asks you the hard questions in an effort to help you develop into the person that God designed you to be. All the while though the questions he asks come out of his own experience so the reader can be assured that what Darter asks he has asked of himself before as well which also gives you an insight into Darter and his life story whilst learning about yourself.
The way this book is organised, Darter has a story to illustrate the topic of the chapter, usually from his own experience, within which he includes questions to get you thinking. Then at the end of the book of each chapter he has questions for reflection and discussion.
I found this a really enjoyable yet challenging (in a constructive way) book. It really lends itself to being studied either privately or in groups. The chapters aren’t abnormally long so they would be good to use for weekly study groups and the reflection/discussion questions at the end of each chapter helps to cement your reading of the chapter. This isn’t a book which can be rushed in its reading as there is a lot of learning to be gained from it that it really needs to be given the time for it to work. I can certainly see myself going back to this book in the future. A worthwhile self-help book to add to your collection.
