Joy Linn Mackey is an author, educator and expert motivator for adults. Her latest book is “The Purpose Experiment: 6 Simple Steps to Jumpstart Your Purpose “( WestBowPress, $11.99, or $3.99 Kindle). The “Purpose Experiment” workbook style helps the reader discover, confirm and activate their true life's purpose.
“The subject of purpose is usually explored from one of two perspectives: general or specific,” said Mackey. “Many books presented from a Christian standpoint only support a general view of purpose — abilities and functions we all share. And many secular books about the topic focus on a specific view that supports uniqueness of purpose, yet without emphasis on God. Unlike many popular books on purpose, 'The Purpose Experiment' brings a unified third alternative to the discussion, where God and Christian perspective support specific purpose.”
Mackey is founder of Audacity Dare, a ground-breaking company that dares people to discover their purpose and live a great life. She activates her purpose every day and now teaches others to do the same. "I write and teach in order to dare people to live a great life," said Mackey.
Mackey will be one of the featured authors at the Philly Winter Urban Book Festival on Dec. 8 from Noon to 4 p.m. at the African American Museum in Philadelphia, 701 Arch St.
