This book is about taking that thing you’ve always wanted to do and turning it into reality. Kathi has 21 days of projects in the book that will help you to look at your life purpose and figure out the practical steps to fulfilling it.
The book includes room for readers to write their responses to questions related to each daily project as well as room in the back for tracking all 21 days. Kathi shares anecdotes from her own life throughout the book which makes it personal and helps the reader feel she has an ally. She also emphasizes the need to find an accountability partner and each chapter ends with a few reports from others who have completed the daily project.
I enjoyed the tone of the book and I think it’s a great tool for taking a life inventory and seeking God for new direction. Many readers will enjoy the idea of Kathi’s 50/50 journal. She keeps a journal of 50 things she’d like to do in the next 50 years, sort of like a bucket list, but with specific steps for achieving each thing. Using the 21-day “Me Project”, a reader can take one item from that list and work through the steps to implementation.
Kathi has a warm writing voice and a style that has broad appeal. She’s real about her flaws and mistakes and doesn’t pretend to have it all together. That goes a long way with readers who have their own flaws and struggles.
