JYoung5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent! Much needed!June 19, 2018JYoungQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book is so needed! It gives live. It gives hope. It encourages, guides and counsels. The author speaks from her personal experience and refers to scripture in everything. She begins with stories of Old Testament greats: Moses, Joshua, David and Jeremiah. She proves that God is the one who calls them and carries them through the calling. Just like these men our callings are from the Lord and they are big God sized callings that we need his help to accomplish. The author is so gracious and exhorts with love. At the end of each chapter you will find reflection questions, discussion questions, personal exercises and ministry spotlights. These things are designed to help the reader evaluate their own life and be encouraged by the testimonies of others. The calling of women in the old and new testaments is covered as well as spiritual gifts and the need for seminary/bible school. There is also a section on mentoring and other ways of gaining experience. And the book ends with a section asking the question is God calling you? This book is excellent. Youll want to read it slow and allow yourself the time to journal the questions provided. Spend time in prayer and listening to the Lord for guidance.
I received a copy of this book as a member of the authors launch team. I was under no compulsion to write a review. All opinions stated here are my own.
Patti Rosell5 Stars Out Of 5Helpful Read on CallingJune 15, 2018Patti RosellQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a needed and welcomed book for anyone sorting through service to the Church!

Her discussion questions at the end of each chaper allow for deeper engagement in the material. Your own story can be discovered and clarified through reading this. This is a great book to walk through with a mentor or group of trusted people in your journey. It is one that can be read today and continue to be useful throughout your ministry life.

DeJama5 Stars Out Of 5Absolutely encouraging readJune 13, 2018DeJamaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The author did an amazing job with this book. Not only does the book give a how-to-guide on the steps to follow when you are called but it also doubles as a study guide as the first four chapters dive into studying all the scripture that pertains to being called especially as a female. For someone learning about scripture or even wanting a refresher this is a great read. Thank you Kristen Padilla for such an amazing book.
