If you wonder what God had in mind for you when He created you, then I suggest you read Tom Paterson's book, Living the Life You Were Meant to Live. Paterson's book is designed to be a process guide to help you gain perspective on where you have been, where you are now, and where you are to go. The goal of the book is to offer the reader a sense of direction in fulfilling God's purpose for his or her life.
Three years ago I heard about Tom Paterson's LifePlan process. Since I was in the midst of moving across the country, leaving my successful private practice as a psychologist, and getting used to being a grandmother, I knew I needed help in designing my new life season. I decided to go through the two-day LifePlan process with a trained facilitator. My experience was life-changing. When I saw my life choreographed on charts around the room, I was amazed. I gained insight about my past life experiences, both the positive and the negative ones.
One result of my time with a LifePlan facilitator was that I realized God had gifted me to use this format to help others find freedom and purpose. A few months later, I met Tom Paterson at a facilitator's training session for LifePlanners. Soon I began leading people through the two-day LifePlan process and I know it works.
When I read Tom's new book, Living the Life You Were Meant to Live, I felt like I was sitting in his workshop again, listening to him passionately explain the LifePlan process. Paterson inspires people to find their God-given inner resources in order to experience spiritual vitality in their daily life and work.

It wasn't until about 1/3 of the way through this book that the light bulb went on. I knew in an instant what the Holy Spirit had been gently knudging me about all along for so many years. This book confirmed many truths in my life. I am reading it again for a second time, NOW to put into practice the matrixs and find closure for several issues I have struggled all my life with. I am forever grateful that our Lord Jesus has inspired Tom Paterson with these teachings, giving the rest of us clear,concise guidelines to refocus our energies and establish a LifePlan the way the Lord intended. Thank You.

The single word that comes to mind that identifies Tom Paterson's new book, " Living The Life You Were Meant To Live " as truly unique and one-of-a-kind, is "perspective." Drawing upon his more than 50 years of consulting with global corporate giants; government agencies, small business enterprises, members of the clergy and church groups, his book provides a thought provoking structure that leads to spiritual self-truth. Mr. Paterson's process coupled with his enormous cognitive capacity and sensitivity to human strength and frailty, skillfully guides the reader towards an awareness of individual balance of the "five domains of life." The Paterson process evokes a focused examination of human and spiritual giftedness, resulting in a clear path for the believer to travel, that leads to faith, happiness, hope and contentment. It is evident that Mr. Paterson has lived the life that he was meant to live. Anyone who misses the opportunity to read this work, misses a legacy of "perspective" shaped by Mr. Paterson's personal faith and unique giftedness that is manifested within the printed pages. Perhaps most importantly, one would miss a journey of personal discovery of God's plan.

If you have looked for years, like I did, for an effective tool to understand your personal mission and vision for Christ, look no further. You will find it in this book! Tom Paterson has taken the strategic planning process, which he originally designed for corporations like Disney and General Motors, and he has adapted it into a process called LifePlanning. It is for kingdom-builders like you and me.
You will walk away with a clear perspective of your past and present. You will have incredible insights and be surprised by patterns, trends and life themes you never knew existed. This, I think, is the true breakthrough power of the LifePlanning process - being able to step back from the business and bustle of daily living to see truth. Don't miss Chapter 9 on "Drivers and Comfort Zones" or Chapter 10 on the "Thinking Wavelength." Both of these simple constructs are life changing. By the time you get ready to write your LifePlans for your Personal, Family, Vocation, Church/Faith, and Community Domains, they will almost write themselves because of your new understanding of who God intended you to be.
Give yourself the gift of clarity and focus today. Let the Holy Spirit flow through Tom's words into your soul, as you surrender ever so deeply and live the life you were meant to live.

From this vantage, you see God's love and hand in your life. You gain hope, face and resolve pain and confusion, and peak into the horizon of your future. Unique, loved, gifted, with old things past and new things to come, you finish this book invigorated and ready to pursue the call of God in your life. This is a journey that leads to blissful surrender and release in the into the Life You Were Meant To Live.
