HOUSTON (PRWEB) May 29, 2014
When author and minister A. Todd Jackson sat down with a 65-year-old woman to discuss her life, she told him that after all these years, she still was unclear of her purpose on Earth.
Jackson too had struggled with this feeling of not knowing his true self or purpose. His new book, “Intended Design: A Journey To Self Awareness” (published by Lulu), co-authored by Adrianna Gardner, is the result of his inner search to discover what makes life worth living.
The purpose of “Intended Design” is to assist other readers on this same journey of self-discovery. Jackson guides readers through a series of exercises and meditations that will help readers begin an open and honest discussion with themselves.
Jackson approaches the topic of faith, spirituality and God from a perspective outside of organized religion. Though he incorporates biblical teachings into his practices, Jackson also looks to history and culture to enrich lives and lead readers towards new understandings of themselves.
“The most powerful tool on this globe that anyone can ever have is knowledge of self and their purpose,” writes Jackson. “May you be awakened, inspired and spiritually liberated, as I have been, by this guided journey to self-awareness.”
