René Kirstein is a Christian Life Coach in the Western Cape, South Africa. Her passion for coaching God’s people to live lives of excellence was borne out of her own frustrations in trying to live a life pleasing to God in the midst of generalized Christian jargon which is seldom explained in practical terms.
In a desperate desire to connect with the Living God, she found herself falling prey to New Age teachings and practices, together with the ‘positive thinking’ movement and the rest of the plethora of self help materials available at book stores. Though experiencing a measure of success in her work life, she found herself disconnected from the God she was seeking, and bound by a life of frantic busyness.
While on this journey, René began to search the Scriptures, looking to find God’s teaching on the ‘how’ of effective living. As God started to open His Word to her, René encountered the Living God and began to experience the freedom and rest that is described in the Bible.
The Lord showed her that He has given His people all they need to live the life He has called them to, but His people allow themselves to become disempowered as they take hold of the teachings, traditions, practices, and wisdom of the world.
Only through the teaching of God’s Word can God’s people truly find the rest He has purchased for them; only as we walk in full obedience to His Word, can we live the life of excellence and power that defines a life truly surrendered to Christ.
My desire is to share the things I have come to learn so that the Bride of Christ may rouse herself and get herself ready for her Groom Who is on His way to fetch her.

This is an awesome read...it demystified the concept of "purpose" for me in such a simple way. I no longer need to run and search for my purpose as if it's some evasive concept which I might miss. The author captures the true essence of the purpose of God for my life through concise and relevant scripture and personal experiences. Thanks - look forward to the next one!
