Publisher's summary

Benedictine Sister Joan Chittister brings to bear the insights of her years of teaching and contemplation to provide us with a way forward as we search for meaning and purpose in our lives. She offers a much-needed message in a crowded modern world that can seem overwhelming and confusing. Through her examination of spiritual calling, gifts, change, and discernment, Sister Joan leads us to the place where - finally - we know we fit; where we are our fullest selves and can be a gift to the world.

Critic 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, co-founder of The Simple Way and author of Common Prayer)
