The 7 Laws of Life Mission

"Does everyone have a mission? Yes, if they want one. God will always use us if we want Him to."~Audrey Rindlisbacher If everyone has mission, then how do they set about discovering it? What does life mission really look like? And how do we ensure that the mission work we do will positively effect others--ourselves and our families included? Through examining the lives of dozens of influential men and women, Audrey Rindlisbacher noticed a pattern emerge: Every individual whose lasting impact...
