One Big Thing by Phil Cooke- Book Review

Okay, I’ve had this book sitting on my shelf for a while now!!! I honestly thought I was going to be bored to death while reading it. However, this book is not a “self-help or a how-to” type of book like I originally thought it was going to be. After all it is a book about how to do that “One Big Thing” I was born to do. However, as I have mentioned over and over lately, I’ve been at a crossroads trying like hang to figure out what God wants me to do with my life and how I can best use my talents for our family.

This book definitely helped me go through my journey of figuring out what my One Big Thing in life that I’m suppose to be doing. It also gave me the encouragement to pursue my passions in life. My passion has ALWAYS been writing and helping others (with using my experiences in life as a means of helping them.) In the past four-five months I have really dug into this blog with a gusto, and it has jumped leaps and bounds (thanks to all of you wonderful readers!!!) I have so many neat products to share with you all over the next couple of weeks, but I’ll save those as surprises for you thanks to the fact that you all have been loyal readers.

This book is a great tool to help a person see what they should be doing with their own life and how to be “happy” doing it. It doesn’t matter what your status in life is, if your doing something you love then you’re not working. You are truly living out what you were born to do. I may never be rich, but I’m rich because of the fact that I’m surrounded by those I love daily. I have made decent money and been miserable as all get out because I wasn’t happy doing what I was doing anymore. (I was until my upper management changed, and I was hitting brick headed stubbornness. I desperately wanted to make things work out. However, God had another plan for me.)

I'm Crystal. I'm married to Dale, and mother to Johnny.Some might say that my life is perfect because I get to do all the cliché wife things like cooking, cleaning, and decorating - but there's more! I also have many hobbies including needlework (crochet), sewing, and reading. My son's education is important, so we homeschool him together.
