Almost anyone you asked would say that they want to do work that matters. Yet just one third of Christians feel "called" to the work they currently do. Others may feel a sense of calling but lack either the courage or the supportive community to carry it out. But if God created each of us "on" purpose, "for" a purpose, we should be ordering our lives "around" that purpose.
Jonathan D. Golden, founder of Land of a Thousand Hills coffee company, has discovered and is living out his unique calling to promote social, spiritual, and economic justice while providing a living wage to 2,500 farmers in Rwanda and Haiti. Now he reveals to readers how to identify their calling, dispels the myths and misunderstandings we often have about what constitutes a calling, and challenges them to pursue that calling with a courage that can surmount the many obstacles that may lie in their path. He also shows readers how to cultivate a community of support that will help them fulfill their calling.
For anyone who is dissatisfied with the work they are doing, especially young Christians just entering the workforce, this book shows how to embrace the meaningful life they were meant to live.
Be You. Do Good: Having the Guts to Pursue What Makes You Come Alive is an inspiring and motivational book. Jonathan David Golden shares from his personal experiences of working in his Land of a Thousand Hills coffee company to speak about purpose and calling. With this combination of interesting stories and practical lessons, Be You. Do Good. is an engaging, relevant, and quick read that I quite enjoyed. I recommend it.
