Item Description...
Emma Estes had a profound impact on everybody she met, from latchkey kids to senior citizens . . . everybody that is except the people she loved most---her family. But after her death, something strange occurs. Her "Living on Purpose" journal mysteriously disappears. As her grown children search for it, they discover that miracles happen and that a life lived in faith can make a difference!

Publishers Description
""When it's time for me to go, I just want to know that my life made a difference, Lord..."
"-Emma Estes's journal, January 1
During her long and rich life, Emma Estes had a powerful impact on the lives of countless people-from the neighborhood's latchkey kids to the community of elderly women who all consider themselves her "best friend." It seems the only people Emma could not reach were those in her own family.
After Emma's death, however, something strange happens: her personal "Living on Purpose" journal mysteriously disappears. As the search for it unfolds, Emma's life continues to have a dramatic, unexpected, and miraculously healing influence on those she loves most-as well as those she has never met-including her henpecked son Stuart; her tormented daughter, Judy; her emotionally fragile granddaughter, Ashley; and brokenhearted widower Ben Shoffner and his young daughter, Sunshine.
A story of hope, inspiration, and real-life encouragement, "Emma's Journal" offers comforting assurance that a life lived in faith truly "can" make a difference.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
I LOVED this book!  Jul 10, 2006
I don't know if I have ever been moved to write an author about a book before. This book - I did. I loved the story and how there is a whole lot more to the story than "just a read." If you are paying attention - it has the potential to change your life. I ordered 10 copies for our small group to read and do as a book study for the summer. Living with purpose - FINALLY someone has put what I have been attempting to live for a long time into a well written story that you can actually see yourself living out. It affirms the fact that every life has significance and that you CAN make a difference in the world around you.
Well done!
A short but very inspirational book!  Oct 12, 2005
One rule of fiction is that the main character has to undergo a change by the end of the story. Well, Emma wasn't the same person her family knew. Oh yeah, she'd lost weight. There was also a greater interest in church. But they really didn't spend much time with her. The key was in her last words, which they missed too. Read the journal! Her friends knew about that journal. Many had started keeping one too. Entries are included, though not in chronological order. Besides changing her own life, Emma had impacted her entire community. When the journal is missing, her friends lead the charge to find it. They also reach out to her family. This story is quite intriguing. Her daughter-in-law is quite a trip. She's mean and controlling. Her husband and pastor usually give in to her wishes. She flaunts her faith, but doesn't really live it. Maybe you've known someone like this. Even worse is to be that person. Emma's daughter has her own problems. Her husband left her for a man. She had a daughter out of wedlock. This girl is inspired to start her own journal. Maybe you will be too. My only beef is that the ending could have been stronger. Still, this is a page turner. I highly recommend it. We could use more Emmas. She reached out to others, regardless of age, race, or background. You will be greatly blessed.
Emma's Journal will touch your heart!  Jan 29, 2004
I like to read, but a book has to really hold my interest or I won't finish it. Maybe one in ten books I start get read cover to cover. I started reading Emma's Journal on a prop plane ride back from Greensboro NC last night and I was late for work this morning because I had to finish it. The characters are well developed and I found myself reading one chapter after another to find the conclusion. The author has a way of drawing you right into the story. Anyone that reads this book will probably re-evaluate and maybe reorder their priorities in life. Rowell gives you some new ways to look at "living on purpose" and you may find you self wanting to make some of the life changes that Emma made. Please keep writing, Ed Rowell, it just may be your purpose!!
awesome book!  Dec 25, 2003
Don't let Publisher's Weekly fool you- this book is well-written and the characters are perfectly depicted for the purpose of the book. Emma's Journal is inspiring and touching.
