Product Description

Do you long to know your unique purpose? Do you feel you have a calling but wonder how to fulfill it?

As we pursue a sense of purpose and scramble to be the ones chosen for internships, graduate schools, marriages, careers, or some special honor, we often tie our identity to people, places, and clear plans that leave us frustrated and unfulfilled. We feel like we're missing the life we're supposed to live and we somehow veered off course. We ask questions like, "Is this God's plan for me? How do I know? What is His plan, anyway?" What if Scripture not only answered these questions but also taught us an entirely new way of living? Instead of waiting for the perfect person, place, or plan, what if we lived, above all else, as chosen for Christ?

Chosen for Christ invites you to step into the life you've been missing. You were chosen for a Person, not a plan. Now it's time to live out your calling to:

  • worship Jesus
  • live as His treasured possession
  • belong to a new household
  • become like Jesus
  • display God's power
  • complete the good works He designed for you
  • live differently from the rest of the world

In a world fixated on personal purpose and impact, Chosen for Christ presents a new way to think about calling. Each chapter includes discussion questions that will help women embrace their identity as chosen ones and step into a new way of living each new day.

Chosen for Christ completes Heather Holleman's vivid verbs trilogy, which also includes Seated with Christ and Guarded by Christ. It works wonderfully as a stand-alone book or as a powerful companion to her previous works. It also provides an expansion of ideas that appear briefly in Holleman's devotional Included in Christ.

Too often we gauge our worth by our career success, relationship status, or number of "likes" on our social media posts. We desperately need a different measuring stick, and Chosen for Christ offers just that. With humility, vulnerability, and a serious study of Scripture, Heather Holleman shows us that God chooses us—not for some distant future greatness—but here and now. Chosen for Christ unfolds glorious potential for our ordinary days, transforming them into an extraordinary journey. This book is a resounding YES for anyone questioning if they are called or chosen by God.

Our media-soaked world inundates millennials 24/7 with compelling promises of where to find their identity, purpose, and value. Problem—they are all empty, chaotic promises. There's only one place they will find contentment—in Christ. Chosen for Christ is a brilliant work that challenges all of us in our personal journey, as well as in our commitment to mentor next-generation leaders.
