Format: Hardcover
How can we really know the heart of God concerning us without prayer? How can we have confidence toward God and His plan and purpose for our lives unless we develop it through prayer? And how could we ever hope to actually live out His will if we refuse to or are lazy in our praying?

The ultimate value in Katie Brazelton's Praying for Purpose is that it engages us in what is arguably one of the most critical disciplines of a Christian's life--prayer. The prayer-per-day format is convenient and provides structure for what can sometimes become an aimless and wandering effort to pray through to an answer from God on a particular topic in our lives. Each day's reading begins with an introduction; provides a modern-day example of a woman who has triumphed, or not, in that day's topic of discussion, includes a targeted question designed to spark honest thought and ends with a short vignette related to a person in the Bible. Finally, the reader is left with a scripture reference to ponder, guided through a prayer and encouraged to identify an insight or action step resulting from that day's reading.

Perhaps including more examples of single women would broaden the appeal, but the stories of contemporary and biblical people who faced the same issues we do today can comfort any woman who may feel alone in her pursuit of purpose, and the confusion and uncertainty which often accompany that pursuit. The questions and space to list action items moves us from inward reflection to outward behavior.

Added bonuses are the special format and activity for Day 60, the classification exercise in Part Two, and the concluding activity which invites each woman to solicit feedback from a trusted friend regarding her responses to all the questions for each day's reading. What a treat!

If you long to discover the way that God has uniquely designed you for His glory, Praying for Purpose is a must! During this sixty-day prayer journey, you will answer questions aimed at uncovering your life's purpose as you examine both your heart and your life experiences before the Lord. You will laugh, you will cry, and you will be amazed as God reveals to you chapter-by-chapter how He has shaped you to do extraordinary things in this world for Him. Praying for Purpose will also help you face the sin, fears, and baggage that may be keeping you from fully realizing God's plan for your life. Throughout her book, I especially appreciated the way Katie Brazelton both encouraged and challenged me to take action steps through her presentation of some fascinating biblical characters and inspiring modern-day role models.

Ever read one of those books that it seems like..."Man, how did she know that about me?"...or...."Good grief, if I highlight one more sentance the whole book will be highlighted!"

Well, that is what it is like when you read Katie's books on finding your purpose in Christ and life.

You will love the way she asks questions, shares examples, and stories of real life woman that have walked that path and are moving towards God's purpose.

The days are simple and yet challenging enough to stretch and grow you. You will love the insightful questions that teach you to reach deep inside and apply action to the daily truth!

Coolest thing is at the end, you can get an overall look of what you have learned, and need to see in regards to God's direction in your life!

Enjoy and Experience this fresh book!

Format: Hardcover
This book is truly a divinely inspired writing that serves as a guide to women who are dedicated to finding their unique, God-given purpose in life. By using the manual over a 60 day period, God was able to speak to me and open my eyes to the talents and abilities He has blessed me with and to recognize the dreams and passions He has placed in my heart to be of great service to Him. Thank you to Dr Brazelton for being a tool for God to use in this way! This is a highly recommended reading for any woman in search of her place in God's eternal plan.

This devotional is excellent! I have enjoyed the layout which offers biblical examples, as well as everyday life examples and questions for personal contemplation. Dr. Katie Brazelton writes in a way that relates to women in all seasons of life. This devotional can help you press through the distractions and clear out the clutter to see where you've been and where you are at. As you work through each day of the devotional, and seek the Lord, you will discover where you are going, and the purpose He has for you.

Format: Hardcover
Katie's God-given giftedness and creative communication shines brightly in this incredible sixty day prayer experience. In a world filled with confusion and distraction, Katie has created a guide to assist women in developing or enriching their prayer communication with our beloved Pappa God (heavenly Father).

The brief daily readings incorporate stories of ordinary women that God has used to fulfill His purposes in each individual life. Each character has experienced a "divine appointment" with their heavenly Father that has given definite purpose for their life. Once the purpose is discovered God is truly honored and glorified.

Each day recalls a biblical story filled with practical application and insights for each situation be it fear, confusion, crisis, success, road blocks, weakness or strength. We find that God's Word is ageless and always constant.

One will find oneself rushing to the next prayer experience with anticipation and excitement to read the experiences that God has allowed in many different lives. Each experience has definite purpose that the reader can relate to in her individual life.

What an exciting beginning to a discovery process of one's life purpose revealed in prayer with Pappa God.
