Review of “You Can Be Everything God Wants You to Be”

Max Lucado has written an excellent little book entitled “You Can Be Everything God Wants You to Be” which is perfect for the high school or college graduate in your life.  It is also perfect for those of us who have never found our “sweet spot,” the zone in which you were made to dwell. 

God has created each person unique with an ingrained talent which will lead him or her to the field best suited to serve God and find joy in life.  Lucado discusses the ways in which a person can attune himself or herself into these talents and finding their sweet spot.  By asking questions and discussing the benefits of self-introspection, he tells you to stick to your S.T.O.R.Y. (Strengths, Topics, Optimal Conditions, Relationship Yes).  

Selections, taken from Lucado’s book “Cure for the Common Life,” can be used as a daily devotional or a great youth group study.  Life doesn’t have to be a drudge.  If you find what you’re good at, what your passion is and weld the two together to serve God and others, then you will live a common life in an uncommon way. 

Max Lucado is Minister of Preaching for the Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas.
