"We are grateful that Callie Daruk has responded to the divine whisper to pen this book, What Does God Want You To Do Before You Die? Her gripping personal story written skillfully in these pages, and how she was prompted to tell it, will inspire others to use their gifts to testify of God's guidance and goodness."
"With humility and grace Callie Daruk prompts us all to ask, "What does God want you to do before you die?" Daruk beautifully guides readers on an examination of the heart with Biblical truth and thought-provoking calls to action. Time well spent and a lovely place to dwell"
"I know with certainty that we were all created by God on purpose and with a purpose. This amazing work by Callie Daruk will reignite the fire within to pursue that purpose and to not waste a single God-given breath. You'll be encouraged to run with perseverance the race set before you like never before."
"With her conversational writing style, Callie Daruk makes herself transparent as she invites us into her life and challenges us to inspect our own lives. Joining her on a journey of prayer and introspection, we must answer for ourselves what God wants us to do with our lives, and then, with her guidance and encouragement, we turn those dreams and goals into reality."
"It's a subject we love to avoid, but the reality is that death comes to everyone. Perhaps we should, instead, be very intentional about living fully in God's calling. Author Callie Daruk offers both practical and spiritual guidelines for this in her new 30-day devotional "What Does God Want You to Do Before You Die?" It's an important question worth our time praying over and pondering. And this gifted storyteller prods the reader to make positive choices in difficult situations --- to be proactive in living out our unique stories. As a young person who has lived through the fragility of life, Daruk vulnerably shares her own struggles in determining how to embrace both obedience and faith in the hardest of circumstances. I suggest you savor each day slowly, and take time to work through your own answers to the application questions at the end of each devotion. The result may just be a courageous living in God's purpose and power!"
"Like a dear friend should, Callie gently nudges and directs us through scripture to help us discover what God has purposed us to do. If you are desperate to have your life transformed to be used for His glory - you need to read this book. It will not disappoint."
"I firmly believe that everything happens for a reason and that, if we're paying attention, some of the smallest moments can create the largest ripples of impact in our lives, in the lives of others, and in our world. One such moment happened in March 2019 when my friend Ben Nemtin was the guest speaker at our cityCURRENT events in Nashville, Tennessee. Author Callie Daruk, as you'll read throughout this book, was an attendee; and she not only personally took Ben's story and words to heart, but she now has reframed the context and refocused the lens to give them a different significance and level of RESPONSIBILITY. There is nothing more powerful than knowing and living out your PURPOSE. I'm blessed to see this through our cityCURRENT efforts each day, as we work with so many individuals and organizations to "power the GOOD" in our communities; but unfortunately, I also see so many who are lost and searching for meaning, a higher purpose, and stronger relationship with God. This book offers us a roadmap to find that higher purpose and take action to live it out; to create urgency and to make it a responsibility not just for ourselves, but for others; and most importantly, to draw closer to God and understand why we were given life on this earth. As a human and especially as a Christian, understanding our WHY is powerful and life-changing. So, that's why it's extremely humbling to have a role in something this BIG and why I challenge you to take this book and these words to heart, "What does God want you to do before you die?"
