About the Book, Discovering and Embracing Your Life Purpose

This book has been my dream to write. It truly is my life’s purpose illustrated in words. It begins by taking you on a personal journey by peering into a man by the name of Tim and his life. We do not come by knowing our purpose when we first entered this world. There are no instructions or clear guidelines given to us, but there are clues. Many of us never even find our purpose and thus never live the life we were created for. My attempt in this book is to provide the clues or “Puzzle pieces” that I believe were not only put within us to find but are also discovered outside of us through life choices (good and bad). Tim’s story illustrates how in his life and mistakes he made he was able to discover some of those clues and be able to take Pain and turn it into triumph and purpose. For us to understand our purpose and reason for our very existence it entails that we start asking some questions and start searching for answers. Although finding one’s purpose is not necessarily easy it is worth the search as once you find your purpose you find fulfillment, joy, love, and a sense of meaning. Each chapter is another puzzle piece to help you discover what your purpose may be. Personally, I discovered mine after much pain and a lot of mistakes. Ultimately, I found it in my relationship with God. As you read you will begin to find and discover the clues to your purpose and my hope is it will keep you motivated to keep searching. As you venture through the book you will begin to discover your strengths, talents, gifts, passions, temperament, Love Language, Personality style, and Personality type. Various assessments, and tests have been provided as well as web sites to assist to identify each of these areas to help you better understand what you purpose is. My hope is that as you better understand yourself and what makes you who you are your Purpose will be revealed. Once you do then I believe your life will unfold with a greater sense of meaning and purpose with a desire to live out your purpose in service to others. I end with these 2 quotes. “There is no greater calling than to serve your fellow men, there is no greater contribution than to help the weak, there is no greater satisfaction than to have done it well” Walter Reuther. “Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many” Mathew 20:28.

Read a snippet of the screenplay:

ON A BLACK SCREEN, QUOTES APPEAR as the sounds of INNOCENT CHILDREN playing and shrieking in delight fills the background:
“Your beliefs become your thoughts, Your thoughts become your words, Your words become your actions, Your actions become your habits, Your habits become your values, Your values become your destiny.”  - Gandhi

 “Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many.” - Mathew 20:28.

A YOUNG MALE NARRATOR recounts a story in VOICEOVER, the story of a boy he knew growing up, at the same time that WE SEE THE STORY UNFOLD IN FLASHBACK. In a sweltering and fairly rundown house, a very PREGNANT WOMAN struggles to fold clothes and pick up after her five children. Nearby her HUSBAND sits on a couch, deep into his third beer, threateningly shooing the kids off to bed, who hush up and leave.  The two adults watch the disturbing evening news on their small TV: VIDEO of American soldiers exchanging gunfire in Vietnam and wounded soldiers removed from helicopters; Martin Luther King Jr. speaking about God’s love and giving his “I have a dream” speech; Martin Luther King Jr. shot on a balcony; buildings burning and violent race riots in the streets of Detroit. BACK ON THE COUCH, the pregnant woman groans and clutches at her abdomen, just as her husband cracks open another beer. He takes a hard chug and helps her to her feet. In a hospital room, the woman pants and screams as she pushes out a crying BABY BOY, who is placed in her arms. AS THE FLASHBACK ENDS, we finally see the person telling this story, TIM, and we sense that he may actually be telling a story about his own family, not a friend’s. He is in a bar, fairly drunk, while a tipsy YOUNG WOMAN drinks and listens. He ends the story with a joke mocking the child and his family, and the two laugh hard. She asks if he wants to go back to his place.
