Embracing Your Second Calling by Dale Hanson Bourke

May 5, 2010

I read Embracing Your Second Calling for BookSneeze.

This is an excellent book for those of us that have raised our families, perhaps have retired and wondering “What is next?”

This is Dale’s summary of what she is learning in the second phase of life. “God wants us to spend the second halves of our lives worryng less about what we do and more about who we become….He (G0d) is calling us to step up to the challenge and to leave the past behind.” She continutes, “This is about heart work. God is calling you to build spiritual muscles, to develop a resume of sould work, to find peace and joy like you have never known. God wants to take you on an adventure unlike anything you have ever dreamed. ‘He will whisper to usĀ not in the mad rush and fever of our striving and our fierce determination to be somone’, writed Emilie Griffin, ‘but rather when we are content to rest in Him, to put ouselves into His keeping, into His hands.'”

If that appeals to you, please get a copy of this book!!This a time that we can draw closer to God, mentorĀ  younger women, do things that we feel passionate about but never considered them when we were younger. This can be the most successful time of our lives. Not necessary the kind of success the “world” looks to but the kind of success that pleases God.
