I was excited about Your Beautiful Purpose: Discovering and Enjoying What God Can Do Through You by Susie Larson as soon as I saw that Ann Voskamp (One Thousand Gifts) had written the Foreward. This book was written specifically for women, with a DVD Study Companion for Bible Study Groups. Each chapter begins with a scripture and a quotation, and ends with Study Questions and Discussion Starters.
Your Beautiful Purpose was very encouraging to me. Susie has a comforting way of writing, and always brings her reader back around to scripture. This book really spoke to many of my personal struggles, aches, and desires. I read this book shortly after giving birth to my third child, and was especially reassured by the chapter about the season of “Rest.” Susie seemed to read my mind and heart from page 1 to page 233. Her honesty and vulnerability were refreshing. Instead of feeling judged, I felt understood. This is a book I will be returning to again and again.
