Hi, my name is Frances Okoro,Â I’m the author of “10 Steps To Walking In Purpose” andÂ I believe that it will be helpful for you to know a bit of my story…
When I was 10 years old, my parents got divorcedâ¦
When I was 13 I encountered pornographic magazines for the first time and started masturbatingâ¦
When I was 14 I started calling up numbers from the newspaper and having boyfriends on the phoneâ¦
When I was 16 I spent the night with one of my online boyfriends and he slapped me around and threatened me with a belt while telling me to open my legs so he could have sex with meâ¦
When I was 17, again I met another boyfriend and started having sexâ¦
When I was 18 I became pregnantâ¦
And at 18 still, I aborted my pregnancyâ¦ twice.
At 18, I became tired of lifeâ¦ tired of my boyfriend who was psychologically abusive, but I didn’t know how to leaveâ¦
I had no joyâ¦
I thought I was nothing; mess, dirt and good for nothingâ¦
And then I found God.
Or rather, I finally ran into His outstretched handsâ¦
And then I discovered my identity in Himâ¦
I discovered that He called me perfect, beautiful and worthy of His loveâ¦
And I also discovered that He had created me for a reasonâ¦ for a purposeâ¦ and all I had gone through was all part of bringing His purpose for me to pass.
And finally, my life had meaning.
I had found Him and in so doing I found myself.
It has been 5 years since those dark years of my lifeâ¦
5 years of throwing myself into God whollyâ¦
5 years of Him blowing my mind awayâ¦

He has called me His own; a writer, a Christian blogger, a teacher, a speakerâ¦ called to dispense Christ with her words and life.
He has shown me my place in Him and also given me an assignment of raising other men and women of purpose for Him.
See, it doesn’t matter how far gone you think you are.
God can still use you for His purposes one earthâ¦ as a matter of fact, He created you to fulfill His purposes and this He planned even before you were born.
âFor everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and invisible, rank after rank after rank of angelsâeverything got started in him and finds its purpose in him. He was there before any of it came into existence and holds it all together right up to this moment. And when it comes to the church, he organizes and holds it together, like a head does a body.â
âColossians 1:16-17, MSG

There is an awakening in the hearts of men and women to the fact that we are not just aimless souls drifting through earth.
We were created by God to live in Him, for Him and through Him and this He calls us to do in the sphere He wants us to fill.
This book is part of that awakening and I pray that as you read, you also will be brought to this point where I am right now â living and walking in Godâs purpose for my life.
