Living Your Story
The Stories We Live (Eerdmans, 2017) explores vocation through eight prepositions: being called by God, to follow, as I am, from loss, for service, in suffering, through others, and within God. This approach invites readers to see how their lives can be faithful responses to God’s dynamic and changing callings over time.
