    Calling

    Product Description
    Discover God's calling for your life ...

    Few spiritual concepts have fascinated and confused people more than understanding God's calling for their life. Is it primarily about a job or a role? It is precise or general? Is a calling only reserved for those who work in professional ministry?

    The truth is actually amazingly profound: What we are supposed to do is what we most want to do.

    This is a guide for discovering God's design and destiny for your life. Drawing from over 20 years of experience in ministry, Gary Barkalow shares how you can:

    Live alert and oriented to the voice and choreography of God.
    Discover and interpret the voice of your own story.
    Discern the strategic assault against your calling.
    Recognize God's intentional training in your life's journey.

    Most of all, you'll be inspired to let the glory of your life touch the world around you.



    over 20 years study on the part of the author. He calls you into the study with the likes of C.S. Lewis, George MacDonald, Oswald Chambers, Dallas Willard and many others. But don't come in expecting to "get it all" in 10 minutes. Come in with your journal in hand, a cup of your favorite beverage, and the understanding that you are going to be here awhile. Because you have been invited to join in a conversation that has been going on since creation. A conversation about life, and living. And that conversation requires commitment; but the rewards will be worth the investment.

    Inspirational guide to finding your life's purpose

    It's Your Call by Gary Barkalow is the perfect antidote to every personality test and guide you've ever read. Barkalow writes about his personal quest to determine his calling from God and in the course of this book helps reader to shed the traditional views of a calling. I was thoroughly stunned by this incredibly thoughtful and thought-provoking guide to help readers figure out their purpose in life. I kept a pen and notebook by my side while reading this book. It's filled with so many motivational and inspiring quotes by famous theologians like C.S. Lewis and Victor Frankl, as well as ideas from the author as well. Barkalow disavows the idea that our calling can be our career, role as spouse or parent, or job within the church. He wants readers to dig much deeper and figure out what it is that brings them the most joy and brings glory to God. It's not an easy subject, but Barkalow takes a completely new look at this oft-discussed topic. I enjoyed his intelligent writing and as inspired by his leading. It's a great book!
