Publishers Description What does it mean to find and follow our personal calling? Howdo we distinguish between the "still, small voice" of our authentic vocation and all of the other competing counterfeit voices in our hearts and the needs of our world? Drawing widely on the wisdom of saints, sages, and the traditions of spiritual direction, Neafsey describes a path to living in the place, as Frederick Buechner has put it, "where our deep gladness and the world's deep hunger meet.

Looking for God Dec 17, 2007
Looking for God
Young adults who are on a God quest, can use this book to help them not only find God but to realize that our call is to serve others. It is about joy in finding fulfillment and in service to others. They will then find God without a doubt.
I have given this book to many of my nieces and nephews, and young adults, who ask for mentoring about their future lives and decisions they need to make. This should be required reading in all our Catholic High Schools and even in higher education.
A Book That Just Might Change Your Life Feb 7, 2007
There have been times when I have done something, something new and maybe a bit risky, and it just felt right. And I wish I had more moments like that. Yet, how often have we found ourselves in careers, educational programs, relationships and it has not felt right at all. So how do we really know what is really right for our lives and what is not?
John Neafsey's book is an inspiring journey towards achieving our true vocation in life. In its pages, he recounts wisdom from many traditions including Native American and Christian about how better we can listen to that voice, that sacred voice, that calls us to action, especially action that not only benefits us but also benefits our fellow human beings.
As I read the book I made a vow to spend more time with my God to realize my true vocation. An easy and inspirational read and a book I feel very blessed to have read.
