About the Book 
Backcover Blurb 

A few years back, Joël Malm had the idea to lead people on outdoor expeditions with a spiritual, God-centered focus. Following God’s lead, he created a vision map, started his organization, and made it happen.
This book is a response to the question he often gets: How do you do something like that?
Whether you want to start a business, raise a family, run a marathon, plant a church, restore a relationship, or climb a mountain, you can take practical steps to see your vision come to be.
Vision Map is not a formula for overnight success, but it is a template to start anyone on the path to envisioning a God-given dream. God often gives us a difficult problem to solve, and we just need a push in the right direction to find the answer.
Why I Choose this Book: 
Goals and vision are a very important part of my life. I believe everyone on earth is here for a reason and God wants to use us in unique ways. This book looked like it would be helpful in helping me serve God better. It wasn’t until just now that I saw Bob Goff, author of Love Does, endorsed the book. That alone would be enough to make me read it. 

What I Thought about the Book:

Yay! This book is quite easy to gulp down, 96 pages of good information, told in a easy-going, easy-to-read way. I’ve read and listened to a lot of information about setting goals and working on the dream God has given you and living a purposeful life, so not much of the information was new. The information was presented in such a way though that made it feel new. 
The book makes us feel like we’re learning along with the author as he takes us through the process of what his vision mapping looked like, and explains what he did and didn’t do and what he learned from it. 
There were a few sentences I didn’t agree with 100% of the way, but they were all minor. A cool connection: I didn’t realize it to the end of the book, but I’m pretty sure Joël and Jonathan are brothers. 
I’m happy to give Vision Map 4 stars (8 out of 10 stars) and recommend it to pretty much anyone who wants to fulfill the dreams God has given them.
