The On-Purpose Person: Making Your Life Make Sense

Mission Statement, purpose, McCarthy

by Denise Fase (Grand Rapids 1998)

I recently had the opportunity to read the book The On-Purpose Person: Making Your Life Make Sense by Kevin McCarthy. During our journey in DVULI, we were able to write our personal mission statement to better understand how and why God made us. This book, written in story format, helped me reconnect and go deeper in understanding my purpose and mission and how to reconnect to it. If you are like me, on the other side of the pandemic, I have again overcommitted to life.

McCarthy describes "on-purpose people" as those who consistently live in their purpose and help others do the same. As a reminder, our purpose helps us know why we are here. Our vision helps us see where we are going. Our mission keeps us doing our purpose. Our values help us choose what is important. If you realize you need to reconnect to your purpose and mission after the chaos of the past few years, I would highly recommend reading this book! You will have the opportunity to walk through and reconnect to or edit your purpose, mission, vision, and values so you can lead well in this next chapter of life.

The book is available on Amazon or on this website.
