Cure for the Common Life

Published by Thomas Nelson

Loved it.
Another quick reading book with major impact from author Max Lucado.  Easy to comprehend style.  Witty and entertaining while conveying basic Biblical truths with common sense.

In Cure For The Common Life Lucado discusses how each person can find the unique talents God placed within them when He created them, and then use these unique talents throughout life to ultimately bring glory to God alone.  Lucado calls this “finding your sweet spot.”  Using the letters of the word story, Lucado presents five questions to answer in helping a person find their sweet spot.

Calling this the “S.T.OR.Y.” method, the questions include:
1. What are your strengths? (S)
2.What is your topic? (T)
3. What are your optimal conditions? (O)
4. What about relationships? (R)
5. Yes! (or when do you feel God’s pleasure?) (Y)

Lucado eloquently develops each question so the reader has examples and ample understanding in how to uses the “S.T.OR.Y.” method to help in finding their God-given talents and use them as God intended. Lucado also includes a “Sweet Spot Discovery Guide” at the end of the book that continues to aid the process of finding your sweet spot.
