Your Best Destiny: Becoming the person you were created to be by Wintley Phipps was an inspirational and encouraging reminder that God has amazing things in store for me. It emphasized that I have every ability of becoming the person that I desire to be, that others would be proud off and that would give me joy and fulfillment.
Phipps, who has excellent stories, examples and experiences breaks down how to fulfill the longing we all have to become better, more joyful, more fulfilled individuals through eight key steps: 1) Belief 2) Virtue 3) Wisdom 4) Self-Control 5) Perseverance 6) Sacredness 7) Kindness 8) Love.
Although these 8 keys do not seem like anything new, we all know we need to love more and practice self-control, but what Phipps does is help us make these things not just words that we know we ought to practice and live by but helps us recognize ways to live them out and the difference that’ll make once we start practicing them.
Whether you are satisfied with the way you are living and who you are right now or not I highly recommend you read this book. You will see how much more you can learn from Phipps about being the best you can be not just meeting human standards and expectations but also knowing you have God’s blessings pouring out on you and on those that come in contact with you.
Thank you to Tyndale for blessing me with a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
