Let’s discover today his self-help book, Ultimate Life Change Handbook (2016).


The Ultimate Life Change Handbook – (71,000 words) This book will change your life. If you let it. It will also change your relationships. Marriage, parenting, small group, the local church, and other community contexts where you are connecting with people.

These thirty-one chapters were written practically. At the end of each chapter is a call to action (CTA) opportunity that will challenge you to do something with what you digested.

This book is best read with someone with whom you can talk to about the content. If you’re married, then your spouse is the perfect candidate. Perhaps your small group is looking for solid, practical, sanctification content. You have found it. Share this book with them.

The thirty-one chapters are divided into ten categories:

1. Discipleship worldview – Chapters 1-5
2. Theology of suffering – Chapters 6-7
3. Heart motivations – Chapters 8-10
4. Change process – Chapters 11-12
5. Three universal problems – Chapters 13-15
6. True repentance – Chapters 16-19
7. Communication – Chapters 20-22
8. Relationships – Chapters 23-25
9. Marriage – Chapters 26-30
10. The challenge – Chapters 31

Perhaps you’re looking for something on communication. You can skip the first six categories and read the three chapters on communication. Maybe you want to get into the heart of your marriage struggles. Great. You can start with section nine. There are five chapters for you to read.

The most effective way to read this handbook is to understand the whole process of change, thus, starting with a Discipleship Worldview is the best place to begin. The categories are set up logically, one building upon the next one.

Regardless of where you jump into this book, the key to your transformation will be how often you use the book. Reading it once and moving on to the next thing is not how this book was constructed. It will take you years to master this material.

Let me restate that: It will take years for you to be mastered by this material. Read it often. Grab a nugget. Let that be your meditation for the day. Share that thought with a friend. Talk about it. Practice what you read daily. Teach someone what you learned.

The teacher always learns more than the student. If you can teach others what you are actively practicing in your relationships, then you will be the master of and mastered by the content.

Let this life-transforming journey begin today.
