Your Blueprint for Life

Your Blueprint for Life: How to Align Your Passion, Gifts, and Calling with Eternity in Mind (Thomas Nelson, 2015)

It’s tough to synthesize God’s priorities for a balanced life. Trying to include every aspect of our primacies from every perspective is tough sledding. Any book that attempts it must, by necessity, skim the surface in survey rather than offer deep, abiding truths.

Your Blueprint for Life quotes liberally from God’s Word, sources, quotes, and stories to provide a general survey of how we should attempt balance—and therefore, it is suggested, satisfaction.

The strength of the book comes in its second half as Kendrick explains a biblical strategy on the “Big Five” areas of our life:

  • Spiritual
  • Relational
  • Physical
  • Financial
  • Vocational

This breakdown reminded me of Luke’s description of Jesus’ balanced life: “Jesus grew in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man” (Luke 2:52).

The book seems to be an expanded version of the author’s “innovative eight-week discipleship study course called ‘Blueprint for Life’” (p. 229-230).

If you don’t mind a very general survey on—as the subtitle promises—How to Align Your Passion, Gifts, and Calling with Eternity in Mind, then Your Blueprint for Life may help and even offer encouragement.
