About the Book

Peace, Purpose, and Potential began as a ministry tool for inmates in the state prison system, particularly the ones locked down in the cell blocks. These are guys that Reed desires to disciple but might only see once. It is a collection of things that he wants to share with them from the Bible and things he has learned through his own struggles and God’s faithfulness. For us to improve our life and realize our potential, we must learn to make better decisions. In other words, we must be transformed by the renewing of our mind. As Reed began writing, he realized that a maturing Christian in the prison system is not that different from a maturing Christian outside the prison system, so the focus is not only on inmates but maturing Christians in general of all ages. Chapters 1–4 address biblical principles; then the focus changes from principles to life application of those principles in chapters 5–15. The goal of Peace, Purpose, and Potential is to inspire maturing Christians to pursue peace, purpose, and their God-given potential in all aspects of their life!
