  • I’ve known Wintley Phipps for many years, and his is a story of small beginnings. He was born and raised on the island of Trinidad with nothing but a dream and a prayer. Yet God has used him to impact the lives of millions of people around the world, including kings, queens, and presidents… If you feel like your life is floundering or you are in a “rut” with no way out, then this book is for you. Wintley beautifully and methodically outlines the major principles set forth in Scripture to help you to realize your best destiny.

  • “Both visionary and immensely practical, it is one of the clearest, most insightful, and most engaging books on the steps to spiritual growth. Full of wisdom, optimism, and grace, it is a wake-up call from business-as-usual for contemporary Christians…It is a must-read for anyone and everyone who wants to delve beneath the superficial and truly discover—with tested tools—what it takes to live a life that makes a lasting difference in the world.

  • Your Best Destiny is an inspiring yet practical guide to seeing yourself as God sees you and discovering with confidence the unique path He’s called you to walk. As Wintley writes, “The best version of ourselves that we can be . . . is not about what we do . . . but about who we are at the core.”

    MATT CROUCH, President of Trinity Broadcasting Network
  • Your Best Destiny is a must-read for all who seek to excel and achieve in life. Wintley illustrates that goals and achievements in life are important; but without empathy in the fullest sense of the word, we all fall short. Insightful and creative, Your Best Destiny will challenge you to protect the greatest piece of real estate you own—the six inches between your ears.

This book awakens in the reader an understanding of the source of grace and abounding joy!
