Discover Your Design, Live God's Purpose

God had a purpose before creating you; He wove this purpose into your design.

This design is breathtaking! You’d love it! It’s a very beautiful design. Nothing else can compare to it. No other person’s suggestive ‘designs’ can match in dexterity, quality, reach, and impact to the design God made of your life.

The only concern is that God has been patiently waiting for you to ‘consult’ Him on your designed purpose. You’ve previously consulted friends, families, colleagues, google, etc but you forgot to consult the Grand Designer, the Master Architect behind your design.

  • Why wait until a certain age before thinking about living?
  • Why relegate the essence to a distant future?
  • Why settle for mere existence when true living beckons?

Life is more than money, fame, glam, possessions, and materialism. Get a firm grasp on life and how to live by design with this divinely orchestrated book.

If clarity of purpose and purpose of living is still confusing for you, this book will demystify it.

Why is this Important?

Discover the incredible results that await you when you unlock your divine purpose and live it out. This book is a roadmap to help you navigate the complexities of life and step boldly into the destiny that awaits you.

In a world where speed, freedom, and instant success dominate the conversation, the idea of finding fulfillment, intentional living, and purposefulness can seem overwhelming—especially for today’s generations.

If you’ve ever felt lost or uncertain about your life’s purpose, this book is a beacon of hope. With profound insights and relatable analogies from architectural design, Dr. Abraham Owoseni guides you on a transformative journey to uncover your true identity and embrace your God-given calling.

Go Beyond Existing to Truly Live out God’s Purpose for Your Life

Whenever a person is living at variance to the original design, such a person is existing and not living.

Dr. Abraham Owoseni | Author

...undoubtedly one of the best books I've read around the "Purpose" subject.

Dr. Abraham’s book, “Living by Design,” can be said to be a “life manual” that everyone needs and should read as they journey through life. Aside from the simplistic nature of the writer in conveying his intents and the use of analogies to further buttress his points, this book is laced with gems and life lessons. Overall, this book addresses our purpose on earth and the essence of our existence. I think that is actually what I found exciting the most about it. If you’re lost as to the essence of your life or you’re just at a point where you’ve lost the zeal or fervor to start living instead of merely existing, this book is what you need. It’d give you the necessary jump-starts you need to making the most out of this beautiful world. It’s undoubtedly one of the best books I’ve read around the “Purpose” subject.

What Thought Leaders Are Saying

about Living by Design

My first time hearing the word, “Purpose” was from the wonderful author of this book, Dr. Abraham Owoseni. He was one of the youngest, dedicated professors in my postgraduate studies at Covenant University, Nigeria. Just by observing the passion with which he intentionally organized engagement programs centered on helping students find their purpose, planted seeds in my heart that subtly took root in the following years after my graduation and bore fruit in 2022.

As I look back, my heart is filled with gratitude for the first person to bring this word to my attention. The book “Living by Design: Go Beyond Existing to Truly Live out God’s Purpose for Your Life”, reflects the years of pruning and refining that Dr. Owoseni has gone through in his discovery and development of Gods unique design for our lives. I urge you to read this book to find your own place in God’s design.
