What Members Thought

"The Search for Significance" is a study about what we usually do to try to feel significant versus the truths in God's Word about where to find our true significance.

I had to read this book for a Seminary class. However, I found it very helpful. The book hits upon various issues a saint will face in his walk with God and spiritual struggles.

If you have never read this book --get a copy fast! This book explains that God loves you even when others think you are not up to par. It made me realize that my productivity levels and work performance are not what I am all about--my self-worth is based on who GOD sees me as, and not what MAN says or does to me.

If you ever needed a self-help book---this is a great place to start!

This is one of my ultimate favorite books!!!

"Self-worth=performance + others' opinions" p. 27
