Book Review: "Destined to Win" by Kris Vallotton

Book Description

Pastor and cofounder of the Bethel School of Ministry Kris Vallotton walks Christians through the profound process of discovering their true identity and experiencing the wonder of their kingdom purposes.
Christians are often told that they were born with a purpose that reaches beyond their human strivings, but most are not sure how to break past the daily struggles holding them back, much less how to fully step into their callings.
As a pastor and the cofounder of the Bethel School of Ministry, Kris Vallotton has been teaching Christians all over the world how to walk in wholeness and purpose for more than seventeen years. In Destined to Win, he passes on the lessons that will help readers discover who they really are, overcome destructive behaviors, and become equipped for their kingdom purposes.
Confronting the challenges that limit Christians—such as living shackled by past pain, fear, and unforgiveness—Vallotton offers practical solutions to the of­ten-complex problems that undermine their destinies and derail their pur­poses. With personal stories and biblical teaching, Destined to Win combines practical wisdom and profound revelation to unlock the latent potential present in each person.
My Review:
Thank you Book Look program for sending me this book for free in exchange for an honest review.   This book drew me in quickly as author Kris describes some of his ministry mistakes and hardships.  It is easy for people in ministry to learn a lot from others in ministry.   I really enjoyed chapter four as it was discussing making your team... a team that would stick together like him and Pastor Bill Johnson.   It was refreshing to see that it took him awhile to realize they were made to work together.   You see I am a pastors wife and have been trying really hard to do the will of God and this chapter brought new clarity for me as my husband and I need to still gather our team.   I feel like we have been for some time but as soon as we start training a leader they are relocated and God calls them elsewhere.   The book does a good job of reminding the reader to focus on their identity through Christ.   Kris also does a good job or using Biblical stories in each chapter to clarify each point he is making.  It is a big change in mindset when you read this book... you have to remember that Christ is in me, therefore I can and will win cause he is Victorious!   I know that is a hard concept to grasp and some days if doesn't feel like winning but keep on praising Him because he is good! 
Overall I have enjoyed this book and think it will help people with identity issues or those who lack self-esteem.
