Research shows that a life lived with purpose is one filled with meaning, determination and persistence. What purpose? Why determination? How persistence? According to scholar Carl Haub and his findings published in the Population Bureau, more than 100 billion people were born over the past 2,000 years. With a current population of 7.5 billion, that means over 92.5 billion people have died since then. With the certainty of life and death, many live a life of existence and not purpose. Most ask "what do I believe"? Many others wonder "where did I come from"? My research and new book to be published in the fall of 2017, discerns generational connections that provide insight to these questions, and much more. The evidence strongly suggests that in order to live a life with purpose and meaning, we must be intentional about our belief in God and where we came from. I am grateful to working with a world-class editorial team and Christian book publisher.
