SIMPSONVILLE, S.C. –
(PRWEB) October 23, 2012 -- Sometimes life throws people a curve, whether it’s missing a flight or receiving a cancer diagnosis. How someone deals with unexpected twists and turns in life will depend on their mental, emotional and spiritual life center – what the author of this new book calls a “backpack.” Just like a real backpack with limited space, our spirit has a limited capacity for killer emotions and poor choices, he writes, and ignoring God’s instructions for life will fill that backpack, weighing you down. He warns that people who are overloaded with unresolved negative experiences become vulnerable to making 7 frequent mistakes that “can steal God’s best for your life”.
In “What’s In Your Backpack? Overcoming 7 Mistakes that Can Steal God’s Best for Your Life,” a pastor provides detailed examples of mistakes that keep people from living as God intended. Mistakes he explores range from wasting potential and repeating bad choices to neglecting worship and avoiding commitment. Russ Shinpoch offers more than a pointing finger, dwelling on mistakes. He provides choices to avoid or eliminate sinful experiences – effectively “emptying” the backpack – by building integrity, disciplining thoughts, using options and relocating immediately. Juxtaposing real-life examples of people with their own burdens, Jesus’ life and scripture, Shinpoch presents a clear roadmap for taking off a backpack of burdens and living a God-designed life.
Author Russ Shinpoch, who has a master’s degree and doctorate from seminary, has served as pastor of Destiny Church in Greenville, S.C., since 2011. This adventurer has led churches of all sizes, from 60 to 7,000 members, to work through big changes and grow. Shinpoch’s own backpack is full, thanks to real-life escapades such as facing a wounded leopard in Ethiopia, starting a magazine, being run over by a London taxi, surviving an elephant stampede in Zimbabwe and nearly dying from a mysterious illness in a remote Indian village. He and his wife, Carol, live in Simpsonville, S.C.
