Let Your Life Speak

Our vocation does not come from willfulness, no matter how noble our intentions, but rather, comes from listening to and accepting our unique blend of gifts and limitations. “Vocation is that place where our deep gladness meets the world’s great need.  In that intersection of gladness and need, we can find a vocation that is not only fulfilling, but also sustainable.”
