Don't Miss Out on Your True Calling

Too often we lean into the wrong things and burn out. We buy society's lie that our worth is our work, our value is our vocation, our calling is our career. Confusing what we do with who we are wreaks havoc on our bodies, our souls, and our relationships. 

In Called Out, Paula Faris shares her journey through conquering fears that nearly kept her from the high-profile, high-stakes world of broadcast journalism, and then the dangers when that world threatened to consume her. She burned out and faced public humiliation, physical breakdowns, and family struggles. But as she struggled to find who she was outside of what she did, she discovered her true purpose and true calling.

Beyond Paula's own story, Called Out provides step-by-step guidance to help you think through your own calling and purpose. Written with passion and conviction, this book reflects on what it truly means to be called, how to move past the fear holding you back, and how to walk in God's path for you.

"I highly recommend Called Out! It is a heartfelt, funny, vulnerable guide to overcoming the pressure to 'win' at all costs, and instead live the life you were made for."--MICHAEL STRAHAN
