Purpose

Do you have a purpose in life? If you’re like many of us your life is so demanding you barely have time to catch your breath let alone contemplate what your purpose might be or if you even have one. With this all too common dilemma in mind Dr. Victor Stretcher has written a book, “On Purpose“, about the importance of having a transcendent goal for our overall well-being (physical, emotional, spiritual). It’s written in a graphic-novel format that can be read in about an hour. There are also 25 pages of scientific information at the back of the book.
