About Chazown

Chazown (pronounced khaw-ZONE) from the Hebrew, meaning a dream, revelation, or vision.
You were born with your own Chazown. Do you know what it is?
You’re invited on a most unusual odyssey—to find, name, and live out your personal Chazown. It’s a journey you’ll never forget because it’s impossible to return unchanged.
Practical, fresh, and biblically sound, Chazown is a one-of-a-kind life planning experience. Perhaps for the first time, you’ll clearly understand what you’ve always suspected:
I have been created and put on earth for a unique and important purpose.
And God intends for me to know it and live it with passion and fulfillment for His glory.
Craig Groeschel will help you get under the surface of your life to discover your life purpose in three often overlooked areas: your core values, your spiritual gifts, and your past experiences. He’ll help you turn it into a highly motivating credo—complete with short-term goals, action steps, and a supportive network to make your big dream a reality.
And then Craig will show you how to apply your own chazown to five critical areas of your life: your relationship with God, your relationships with people, your finances, your health and fitness, and your work.
Are you living someone else’s dream for your life, or no dream at all? Get ready for Chazown.

Praise for Chazown

“It is depressing to consider how many people will go to bed tonight never having thought of how God wanted them to spend the day. As Craig points out, this is a deadly cycle that quickly culminates in a wasted life. Chazown reminds us of the brilliance of our God who carefully created us and empowered us for a life of purpose. I pray it rescues many from an eternity of regret and leads them toward the satisfying and meaningful life God intended.”
—Francis Chan, best-selling author of Crazy Love

“Craig Groeschel dreams God-sized dreams. But he’s also one of the most down-to-earth people I know. You can’t get close to him without getting a vision infection. And his church, Life Church, is like a church on steroids. Creativity oozes out of every pore, leaving a trail for churches to follow if they want to impact culture. If you need a dose of vision, pop the Chazown pill.”
—Mark Batterson, lead pastor of National Community Church, Washington DC, and best-selling author of In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day, Wild Goose Chase, and Primal

“Craig Groeschel is a leading voice among the new generation of communicators. He knows how to articulate people’s deeply felt needs, and—even better—to help them identify and pursue their God-given dream with passion and purpose.”
—John Maxwell, author, speaker, and founder of INJOY Stewardship Services and EQUIP

If you feel as if you are just spinning your wheels...not living, but only surviving, then you may have lost your "chazown".  The book title was enough to intrigue me, but the substance was enough to keep me interested from cover to cover.  Finding your vision sounds a lot like psychological fluff, but Craig Groeschel grounds his writing in scripture and sincere pursuit of God's design.  We are often guilty of just hoping that God will just...

"Chazown" is admittedly a weird title for a book. We used it as a church, and found that everyone from the person up front announcing it to the class participants felt sheepish even trying to say it. That aside, the content is incredible. One of the major driving points of the book is that you can learn who you are by paying attention to your life. It utilizes all the usual methods you might expect, from a spiritual gift test to inventories...

There is a part of me that does not like the idea of a step by step process to find out what God wants us to do. We need to take time to listen to God. The End! â?º However, we are all so wrapped up in our busy, crazy lives, that very few of us really take time to settle our minds and hearts to truly hear from God. With that in mind, Craig Groeschel does a great job here. As always, he has a great way of communicating clearly and...
