Episode 16:  Spotlighting the Bridge Builder - Beth Goss Townsend
On this episode of the Building the Bridge podcase we interview Author and TV Host Beth Townsend of Life on Purpose Ministry.  Beth, a unique bridge builder brings an interesting perspective to tearing down barriers and building bridges.  From her days of property management to her new book, “Life on Purpose”, she has inspired many to seek their purpose.  Join us to hear more about what Beth is currently doing. Bio Beth Goss Townsend Married to Fred, 27 years Mother of  2 adult children Grand-mother of one On her own since 17 years old right out of high school, Beth had no choice but to go to work.  Starting as a property manager in Virginia, she climbed the corporate ladder and became a young executive working as VP of Operations for a Real Estate Company in Atlanta.  Eventually becoming a trainer for the industry, Beth was asked one question numerous times that changed the course of her life.  "How did you know your purpose?"  In her twenties, she had no clue of her purpose!  Realizing the depth of the question led her on a spiritual journey that continues today.  Since 2001, she has been interviewing "on purpose" people with the goal of learning how to share with others how to live a purpose-full life.  From her book "Life on Purpose," she gleaned 9 "Purpose Principles" that she has found can help anyone learn to be led so they can effectively lead others.  Whether at work, in ministry, or at home, we all must set parameters on our life so we can do what God has called us to do with passion, while also realizing we were never called to "do it all." The purpose is a mindset where passion lives, faith thrives, and God's will is accomplished in the life of every Believer!
