Living out our calling is not for the faint of heart. Living a life of significance may require us to take a path that family and friends do not completely understand. The Holy Spirit enables us to live the life God created uniquely for us. God will show us what it means to live a life of significance.
This book is designed to educate readers on one’s vocation and what that means in terms of living out our life in our various and overlapping vocational arenas – family, professional, community, and congregational. Throughout the book, what the true meaning of “success” is for a Christian is examined to help the reader discover and live out the life that God uniquely created for them.
