My two books Never Complete and How To Feel Empowered When You Are Overwhelmed have been in the works for a long time. These books are about my life; where I’ve been and who I’m becoming. It’s a book about being vulnerable, overcoming obstacles, and learning how to embrace the journey with excitement even when everything does not turn out the way you envisioned. I’ve spent time with thousands of college students over the past six years, and I’ve realized most college students have a life plan of “Get a degree, get a good job, get married, buy a house, travel, have kids, the end”. However, as most of us know, life doesn’t always go as planned. Even when it does we are often left still yearning for more. Why do we always want more? And why aren’t we satisfied with where we are for very long?
Our destiny was never a destination. Life isn’t about achieving something but rather it is about becoming someone. Who we are becoming is way more important than what we are doing. Too many people become stagnant and wonder what they are doing or are going to do. We all want a life of purpose and want to be loved along the way. How do we find these things?
What I’ve discovered is that when we are open and willing God infuses our lives with purpose. He uses imperfect people to do the impossible; He always has and always will. In my book I walk through my life’s journey and what I’ve learned along the way. I tell stories I’ve never told before and I peel back all of the layers of my past. Never Complete is a book where I talk about how imperfect I am, my flaws and failures. Despite all these things we can all feel empowered still. There is hope. My wish is that this book encourages you to take the next steps along your journey to greater joy and purpose. It’s a journey of next steps. My hope for you is to not just focus on the outcome, but on the process. To read the introduction of Never Complete please click here.
