Answering Your Call

  • Jun 19, 2010
When we think of a calling, we tend to think about people like Mother Theresa. A person endowed with a special gift who dedicated their entire life to a single cause. Someone who was chosen by God to make the world a better place.

Because of these preconceived notions, we often don't recognize our own callings. We may feel the pull of something at the edges of our consciousness but be afraid to label it a calling because it seems mundane compared to Mother Theresa. We feel unworthy or worry what others might say so we simply ignore the call or calls.

I've never read a book like Answering Your Call. This enlightening book takes the reader through the process of figuring out if they do indeed have a calling, or callings. Then, the book provides insight into the harsh realities of callings: coping with self doubts, staying motivated, completely mundane tasks, the balancing act between life and the calling, and dealing with saboteurs.

Doing what is in your heart is not always as simply and easy as it might seem. Sometimes, it's downright difficult. After reading Answering Your Call, you will realize that all callings, no matter how insignificant, are important. Yes, there are pitfalls along the way but there is also a great deal of joy.
