CHAZOWN by Craig Groeschel

OVERVIEW: Define Your Vision. Pursue Your Passion. Live Your Life on Purpose. You were born with your own Chazown (pronounced Khaw-ZONE). Do you know what it is? In this book you are invited on a most unusual odyssey---to find, name, and live out your personal chazown. It's a journey you'll never forget because it's impossible to return unchanged. Practical, fresh, and biblically sound, Chazown is a one-of-kind life-planning experience. Craig Groeschel will help you get under the surface of your life to discover your life purpose in three often overlooked areas: your core values, your spiritual gifts, and your past experiences.

AUTHOR: Craig Groeschel is the founding and senior pastor of, recently ranked the nation's second largest church. currently hosts more than eighty weekend worship experiences at fourteen campuses. Craig and his wife, Amy share a passion to lead people to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. They live with their children near Edmond, Oklahoma.

MY REVIEW: This is a powerful book that will change your life. The title of the book is extremely difficult to pronounce but the book is easy to understand. Easy to understand, but not so easy to obey. And yet Craig Groeschel communicates his God-sized dreams in such a down-to-earth way that it gives you hope, courage, power and faith. You, too,­ begin to dream big dreams. Author and speaker, John Maxwell said, "Craig Groeschel is a leading voice among the new generation of communicators. He knows how to articulate people's deeply felt needs, and−even better−to help them identify and pursue their God-given dream with passion and purpose." Chazown is from the Hebrew, meaning a dream, revelation, or vision. I honestly believe that when you read this book you will not only believe that you were born with your own chazown−but you will also know what it is. That's one of the most important things in your life. This book will change your life. Get a copy and read it soon. As Robert Cupp, teaching pastor of Fellowship Bible Church in Arkansas said, it will give you "a clear vision for life's journey.

I have to say Pastor Craig has an amazing way to communicate. He is a man who is very humble and before he asks his congregation to do something let me just tell you he asks it of himself that much more!
When he shares his stories about being called into the Ministry and all the people who told him he was just too far out there LOL, it amazes me because truly he has found his purpose and boy oh boy is he anointed!

Thanks for such a wonderful review!
