I’ve set a personal goal to read fifty-two books in this year of 2012. As of today, February 5 I have finished nine books. Of those books my favorites so far are “Killing Lincoln” by Bill O’Reilly, “The Circle Maker” by Mark Batterson, “Change: Count on it” by Bill McDonald and “Weird” by Craig Groeschel.
I have also read some books that I didn’t care for but I live by the mantra “if you can’t say something good, don’t say anything at all”.
My favorite book so far this year is the book “Soul Print” by Mark Batterson. First of all this book is a little smaller “trim size” and 183 pages so it’s not a long book. It’s also very easy reading. No hard plowing here.
This book helped me with me more than any other book I’ve read in a long time (except of course the Bible).
The theme of the book is your uniqueness. God made you and he made you unique. As the back cover says “There never has been and never will be anyone like you. But that isn’t a testament to you. It’s a testament to the God who created you.” This book set me free in one important area, “the need to please people”. As a pastor I have found myself over the years driving myself into the ground trying to be all things to all people so that they would be please with me. I know now that I really have only two to please, God and Felicia.
I encourage everyone to read this book. Find out what your soul print is. GET YOUR COPY OF SOUL PRINT AT THIS LINK.
