Own Your Life by Sally Clarkson

I wanted to read this book with you.  Let's read it along together.  I've read a little bit of Sally Clarkson's blog and books over the years and I really like what she has to say.  Come along and read it with me. I'll go a chapter at a time.  Post your feedback in the comment section as we go along.  :-)

Own Your Life by Sally Clarkson

In the Foreward of the book, 3 of Sally's heartfelt friends share the concept of what "own your life" has meant to them.  Sally answers the questions of "What has God called me to do?  How do I raise kids to love God and others well?  What difference can I make in this world?"  She wants us to have the satisfaction of owning our own life.

Love the quotes from her friends in the foreward:
"Our lives matter because God has a story for us to live for His Kingdom.  And to live it, we must be willing to own our lives."  -Sarah Mae

Don't just sit back and let life happen to you:  Engage it, embrace it, and live it out with intention, purpose, and trust in our Lord.  Live a life of faith; don't be afraid to take risks and love those God has places in your life."  -Angela Perritt

With wisdom, encouragement, and vision, she helped me see what I needed to change, what I needed to let go of, and what I needed to grab hold of in God's calling on my life."  -Ruth Schwenk

I'm diving in to Chapter 1 tomorrow.  Won't you join me?
