Created To Relate – Insights Into Our Design and Purpose
- Why am I here?
- Why did God make me?
- What is the meaning of life?
You are invited to embark on a journey of discovery into God’s creative intention for your life. Created to Relate unlocks the mystery behind “what” we are as a being, “who” we are as a person, and “why” we exist.
Created to Relate describes the essence of human life and answers how and why we were created. It brings clarity and new insight into the design of the human body, soul, and spirit. This book illustrates how each part of our being function in unison to form “who” we are and become. Its description of the human heart is groundbreaking.
Our body and spirit are a composite of both the natural and spiritual realms. They enable our interaction and communication with both realities. We help you understand the real difference between our soul and spirit.
While no one can fully know or understand God, we learn of Him as we receive the insightful guidance He provides. Our interaction with the presence of God transforms us into better reflections and resemblances of our heavenly Father’s heart. Created to Relate shines fresh light on the “image and likeness” of God.
We can live with a greater sense of value and profound satisfaction! Delve into Created to Relate, an easy-to-understand description of how we are designed to function on this earth as natural and spiritual beings.
How we are designed to function and relate to God become clear, concise, and illuminating. This book will be extremely helpful to all who want to walk in deeper intimacy with our Creator.” Catherine Zoller

Research has shown that our retention is greatly increased when insights are discussed. Friendly conversation helps enlarge everyone’s understanding and can ease the application of new insights into our daily lives.
Each time we pursue learning within the context of probing discussions, amazing things happen: A unique depth of understanding develops and personal accountability is encouraged as we “spur one another on toward love and good deeds” (Hebrews 10:24). Life is truly meant to be lived together!

One reviewer commented: “…provides several opportunities to “ponder it through” in each chapter and often on every page. He opens up not only scripture, but deeper understanding of the processes that we manage each and every day…This book is a sheer delight and I highly recommend it be read over and over.” Sandi Querin, MBA, JD., ThD, Pastor, The Revival Center
