Your Best Destiny by: Wintley Phipps (Book Review)

Your Best Destiny by: Wintley Phipps (Book Review)
Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book through the publisher as part of the
 Your Best Destiny book launch team, in exchange for an honest review. This post also contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on these links. Thanks for supporting my site! 
 
Your Best Destiny is a life changing book that discusses eight different segments of life, and how to live the best life God intended us all to have.  Each book comes with an individual code that includes free online access to a personal assessment tool, and the back of the book has questions for personal use or for a small group study.  There are also reflection questions, summary of vocabulary and things described, and a prayer at the end of each chapter.   The very first endorsement in the book is by Ben Carson, and to me that speaks volumes.
 
The author opens up the book in asking what success can be defined as in our lives.  Each person has their own description of success, but the success he talks about is living the best life we can with the gifts that God has blessed us with.  Each of the eight descriptions is almost like an adult version of the fruits of the spirit, but is explained with personal stories, celebrity stories, and also not so famous people and their testimonies.  I enjoyed this because it gave me a visual and a way of applying it to life. 
 
The ironic thing about reading this book, is God also had a way of showing me exactly what the author was talking about.  I was able to see situations with a new set of eyes and even say to friends and family, "I just read this great book and there was a true story in it and it went like this..."  I was also able to apply many of the things explained in this book to my own life.
 
This is a wonderful book.  I loved that the beginning of each chapter either had a famous quote or scripture, along with a story of something very relatable that hit deep.  It is very easy and enjoyable reading, so I think anyone older than a middle school child would have no problem reading and appreciating this book.  I would stamp my highest recommendation on this book, and think many could relate to and apply these strategies to living the best life that God created for them.
 
Thanks for stopping by to read my review, and thank you to Your Best Destiny book launch team for allowing me to be a part of this.
 
Blessings,
 
Kelly
