For years I’ve taught, written, and coached others on the subject of discovering your life’s purpose. Whether speaking at a conference, teaching in a classroom, investing in my staff, engaging in a coaching conversation, or writing an article, the subject of life purpose has always fascinated me. The apostle Paul captured it well when he said, “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” The question people wrestle with is, “What are the specific good works God created me to do?”

Do Good Works helps you answer that question, and leaders like Sam Chand, Tony Morgan, Steve Moore, and Chris Railey have already endorsed it. In Do Good Works, you’ll learn how to:

  • Get unstuck and find direction for your life.
  • Turn over the ten pieces of the “Good Works Puzzle” and link them together to discover your purpose
  • Clarify your gifts, abilities, passions, values, calling, and more so you can pursue the good works God created you to do.
  • Craft your insights into a compelling Good Works Statement that captures God’s call for your life
  • Find a role that matches who God made you to be so that you can live out your good works every day
  • Make your slice of the world flourish as you do good works

Do Good Works presents a practical process to discover your good works and live everyday with significance. Do Good Works is for…

  • People who are asking, “How do I discover my purpose in life and truly make my life count?”
  • College students and young adults who want to pinpoint the direction for their future and find a role that’s right for them.
  • Leaders, mentors, and coaches who want to help a friend, team, or mentee play to their strengths and live on purpose.
  • Anyone at a crossroads who wants to figure out what’s next, make a job transition, or do what matters most.

4 Reasons to Buy Our New Book Today

Today is the official release of our new book, Unexpected: What to Do When Life Disrupts Your Plans. To celebrate the book’s release, we’re giving away FOUR FREE BONUSES to everyone who buys the book THIS WEEK and emails me a copy of their receipt. I’ll share all the details in a moment, but first…a bit about the book.

On October 17, 1989, my wife Karen was traumatically robbed when five men broke into her house and dragged her out of the shower at gunpoint. In that debilitating moment of pain, Karen’s peace was stolen from her, and she was forced to walk an unexpected road to recovery.

Unexpected - Book CoverOn March 16, 2014, I suddenly found myself on a road that would lead to a fight for my life. Initially the doctors thought it was Pneumonia, but after an Echocardiogram they quickly discovered my situation was much more critical. After an emergency transport by helicopter to the Heart Center, and thirty-six hours after my battle initially began, three doctors met my wife in the hospital waiting room and said, “Stephen is simultaneously experiencing congestive heart failure and pulmonary failure. He’s between a rock and a hard place.”

Everybody Encounters the Unexpected!

Whether it’s losing a job, receiving a bad report from a doctor, a late-night phone call, a relationship ending, a financial setback, or a dashed dream, “unexpected” shows up in unwelcome ways. Sometimes it feels like it’s raining rocks, and we’re doing our best to dodge a fatal blow. The question is, how do we respond when life unexpectedly disrupts our plans?

In our new book, Unexpected: What to Do When Life Disrupts Your Plans, Karen and I share our unexpected and personal stories of pain and disruption. The stories are raw, transparent, and honest. We share our fears and the roller coaster of emotions experienced when life disrupted our plans. Most importantly, we share hope, and seven takeaways that we believe will help you navigate your own unexpected disruptions including: Prayer, Trust, Perspective, Family, Community, Purpose, and Legacy.

Each takeaway is loaded with practical wisdom that you can apply to your life today. And every chapter includes honest, authentic, and emotional clips from our journey. Whether you’re navigating an unexpected disruption, or your life is going great, the insights in Unexpected will inspire hope, offer wisdom, and deepen your faith. When you purchase the book THIS WEEK, you’ll have access to FOUR FREE RESOURCES. 

“When life disrupts your plans – and it will – how will you respond? Karen and Stephen Blandino have walked through deep valleys of disruption and emerged with truth that will help you face your own times of pain and loss. Take advantage of their hard-won perspective for facing the unexpected setbacks and traumas in your own life.”Dr. Daniel Allen
Leadership Coach and author of Summoned: Stepping Up to Live and Lead with Jesus.

Karen and I are so excited about the upcoming launch of our new book, Unexpected: What to Do When Life Disrupts Your Plans, releasing Tuesday, September 16th. But we need your help…and we want to give you four gifts for helping us.

Unexpected - Book CoverWhat is Unexpected About?

Everyone encounters the Unexpected! Whether it’s losing a job, receiving a bad report from a doctor, a late-night phone call, a relationship ending, a financial setback, or a dashed dream, “unexpected” shows up in unwelcome ways. Sometimes it feels like it’s raining rocks, and we’re doing our best to dodge a fatal blow. The question is, how do we respond when life unexpectedly disrupts our plans?

In Unexpected, we share our personal stories of two traumatic disruptions. Karen shares how her peace was stolen during a robbery when five young men broke into her house, and then dragged her out of the shower at gunpoint. I share my journey of simultaneous congestive heart failure and pulmonary failure despite years of annual check-ups with good reports. From our stories of unexpected disruption, we share seven valuable takeaways that we’ve learned along the way: Prayer, Trust, Perspective, Family, Community, Purpose, and Legacy.

Each insight is extremely practical, and each chapter sheds transparent light on the ups and downs of our journey. Whether you’re navigating an unexpected disruption, or your life is going great, these practical insights will inspire hope, offer wisdom, and deepen your faith.
