The Bible is filled with examples of monumental events that effected great change in just 40 days. Learn how to establish and adhere to a routine for 40 days, thereby creating habits that will last a lifetime. Perfecting Your Purpose - 40 Days to a More Meaningful Life - In this inspiring and practical book, Dr. David Ireland teaches how to honor your God given reason for living - your purpose - and help bring it to fruition every day of your life.
