New devotional workbook helps people discover their unique calling

Shakopee, Minnesota – September 15, 2011 – Pastor Jay Perry has recently published the Personal Vision Workbook, along with a student edition, to help people discover God’s unique calling and mission for their lives.

In the summer of 2010, Perry took a temporary leave of absence from pastoral work to care for his mother, who is dying of cancer. He helped his mother move across the country so she could be closer to her children and grandchildren. He currently works from home so that he can be available when she needs him.

“I decided to publish the Personal Vision Workbook because I’ve been going through a lot of life transitions and stress recently.  I returned to this process to help me understand where I’m supposed to be headed,” said Perry.  “I figured a lot of others might be in the same position, with current economic uncertainties.  It’s a good time to reinvent yourself – or let God reinvent you.”

Perry originally introduced the Personal Vision Workbook to his congregation at the Cornerstone Adventist Church in Wichita, Kansas.  Over the past five years, he has led several groups through the personal vision discovery process.

The student edition of the Personal Vision Workbook addresses the unique needs of high school and college students who are trying to figure out what plans God has for their future.

These books are appropriate for personal devotionals, a church-wide discipleship program, Sabbath school class, small group, community workshop, youth group, week of prayer, academy or college religion class.

The Personal Vision Workbook (ISBN 1466301473) and Personal Vision Workbook – Student Edition (ISBN 1466319534) retail for $6.99 and are available to order through your local Adventist Book Center or at
