Product Description

In our modern and mobile society, the range of answers to the questions, "What am I supposed to do with my life?" and "How do I know when I've found my purpose?" can seem endless and overwhelming. Sr. Joan brings the insights of her years of teaching and contemplation to bear on these issues, providing listeners with a new way forward.

Through her examination of spiritual calling and gifts, change and discernment, she leads listeners home to the place where, finally, we know we fit, where we are the fullest version of ourselves and a gift to the world.

Publisher's Description

This book is meant to give someone in the process of making a life decision at any age—in early adulthood, at the point of middle-age change and later, when we find ourselves at the crossroads without a name—some ideas against which to pit their own minds, their own circumstances. Its purpose, as they wrestle with the process of trying to find and follow their own special call at this new stage of life, is to both provoke thinking and to clarify it. —Joan Chittister

Editorial Reviews

"Joan Chittister is a legend.  In this book she reminds us that when we connect our passions to the world's pain, everybody wins.  Joan's book is a wonderful corrective to the piles of narcissistic, fluffy "find yourself" books and self-help theology which often miss the secret to fulfillment which is -- if we want to find our lives, we've got to give them away... we are made to live for something bigger than ourselves.  Joan nails it.  She invites you to cling to Jesus, dive into the world's pain, and do something daring and beautiful with your life."
 
 -Shane Claiborne, cofounder of THE SIMPLE WAY and author of COMMON PRAYER
