Listen to My LifeMaps for Recognizing andResponding to God in My StoryBy Sibyl Towner and Sharon Swing (5 stars)Buy this book if you:• Want a great tool for finding God inyour life story• Are coaching visual learners in lifepurpose discovery• Want to do a fun life purposediscovery class or workshopThis self-guided workbook fills an important void in the tools coaches use for lifepurpose discovery—and it is pretty cool, too. The book contains a series of eight large(11” x 17”) graphical “maps” (some more than one page) done in watercolor. The mapsallow people to visualize their life stories and how the different pieces interconnect.While coaches commonly help people talk about their story or write down pieces of it,this tool lets clients see their journey. For visual learners or coachees who are „S‟s on theMyers Briggs (and don‟t naturally see the larger patterns), being able to look at a pictureof one‟s life journey is invaluable.The maps focus on two things: paying attention to how God has been at workthrough the story of your life, and learning to listen more effectively to what he has to sayabout who you are every day. In other words, you are mapping the journey toward God‟scall more than the final destination. The maps examine what your life looks like now,peak experiences, valley experiences, your life story, desires and longings, and more.You can coach others through them separately or do the entire journey. A Facilitator‟sGuide is also available for leading a group experience with this material, which I thinkwould be a fun and meaningful experience.One of the authors is a spiritual director, and that influence is obvious in the book.Each map includes prayer and listening exercises, significant quotes to meditate on andjournaling exercises. Many of the exercises are adapted from ancient Christian spiritualpractices like Lectio Divina (a pattern for meditating on scripture) or the Examen (a wayto find God in one‟s daily life).One thing I love about this product is that the life purpose questions are asked in away that pushes you God-ward instead focusing on self. Unlike many other Christian lifepurpose books, this volume has as its primary goal that you know God. Purpose is avehicle to that larger destination, instead of an end in itself.
