I Dare You

By Joyce Meyer
Authors:
Joyce Meyer
I Dare You is The Purpose-Driven Life, Joyce Meyer style!Joyce Meyer explains that a life without purpose is a life not worth living. We all need a reason to get up every day. We all need a reason to reach for something beyond ourselves. Over the centuries, millions of people have asked, 'What am I here for? What is my purpose?' The more important question is 'How can I live today?'Taking responsibility for how we live takes courage. To accept life as it is comes to us and to be determined to make the most we can out of it is a big challenge. Joyce challenges her readers to make sure they live their lives with purpose and passion.
