Can you imagine waking up one day, announcing you are taking a trip to a distant landmark and driving off, with no directions, no plans? What are the chances that taking any road that appeals to you would actually get you where you wanted to go?
So many of us treat our lives that way. We don't think about where we want to be in the future. We just wake up each day and do whatever appeals to us or whatever we think needs to get done in the moment. If failing to plan is equivalent to planning to fail, we shouldn't be skipping such an essential key in unlocking our purpose.
Each one of us is here for a reason. We have been given a precious gift of life and by making intentional, positive choices we can plan our best path.
It was a gift of a stone etched with the letters P U R P O S E that inspired the Legacy of the PURPOSE Stone. Gilda Runco tells a remarkable story of how a real-life tragedy led others towards a path for discovering their special purpose.
I had the lucky opportunity to witness how Gilda kept an auditorium of adolescences and adults hanging on every word she spoke.
This book does a phenomenal job of illustrating the importance of family, friends, and following your purpose in life. I think every child and adult should read this book to help them answer the age old-question "Why am I here and what is my purpose in life?" - Chad R. Vinansky, Mid Valley Secondary Center Principal
"Gilda tells an emotional and personal story from her heart. She invites you into her soul with spectacular storytelling and a real purpose. This is a must-read for any parent as inspirational advice based on pains and experiences." - Larry Holeva, Executive Editor, The Times-Tribune, Scranton
All I can say is WOW What a great self-help book. - Cathy Mazur, librarian and author of Stanley Seagull
Legacy of the PURPOSE Stone ignites a spark in oneself and should be required reading for every high school student because it gives a course to follow for a life filled with purpose. - Julia Betti, Mid Valley High School student
"If you want to know how to turn emotional pain into personal progress......how to go from living in mediocrity into living above average......and from having no direction in your life to having a clear vision and specific goals, then you will benefit from this book. Great truths coupled with Biblical principles I highly recommend that you take advantage Gilda's experience and wisdom." - Pastor Gary W. Haskell, Sr, Jackson Baptist Church, Jackson, PA
