Book Review – “You Can Be Everything God Wants You To Be”

I’ve just finished reading Max Lucado’s “You Can Be Everything God Wants You To Be”. It’s actually a very quick read of 127 pages and seems to be a condensed version of Max’s “Cure for the Common Life”. This would make a great gift book for a college student or young adult, but is also a great read for anyone trying to determine who God wants them to be. Much like “Cure for the Common Life” this book talks about finding your sweet spot, studying your S.T.O.R.Y., and taking great risks for God.

One of the best parts of the book for me was the chapter on finding your sweet spot. Max puts it this way: “Use your uniqueness (what you do) to make a big deal out of God (why you do it) every day of your life (where you do it). At the convergence of all three, you’ll find the cure for the common life: your sweet spot. So, if you are tired of your common life, let me encourage you to pick a copy of “You Can Be Everything God Wants You To Be”. It may just change your life.
