God calls us first to himself, to know and follow him, and also to a specific life purpose, a particular reason for being. This second call or "vocation" has implications not only for our work or occupation, but also includes our giftedness, our weaknesses, our life in community and what we do day to day. In this book Gordon Smith invites you to discover your vocation by listening to God and becoming a coworker with him.

  • What is my calling?
  • How do I live it out in the midst of difficult relationships or moral challenges?
  • Will my vocation change as I enter a new stage of life?
  • With competing needs and demands, how can I craft a balanced way of living?
Smith addresses these questions and many more in the pages of this book. This new edition has been revised and updated throughout with two expanded chapters and a new chapter on four specific areas of calling. Here is rich insight for all who long for the ears to hear and the courage to follow God's call.

Review:

"Smith simplifies the process of sound vocational decision-making. . . . Smith's text is thoroughly engaging as he deals with one of life's most important issues." (Publishers Weekly)

"I wish I had this book in my hands when I was in college, and I hope many Christians use this book to evaluate what God is calling them to do in their life vocation." (Larry W. Lyon, Themelios 37.1)

"This is an encouraging read for nurses who may be weary and wondering how we can keep going. The reading is easy and the steps are light, not burdensome." (Journal of Christian Nursing, Vol. 30, No. 1)
