We have all been put on this earth for one reason or another. Some of us figure out our gifts and purposes long before others while some of us take years to discover them. It is all part of a plan larger than us.
The now available book Now That I’m Called: A Guide for Women Discerning a Call to Ministry gives us women a good understanding of being called by the Lord. Not only does the book give a how-to-guide on the steps to follow when you are called but it also doubles as a study guide as the first four chapters dive into studying all the scripture that pertains to being called especially as a female. For someone learning about scripture or even wanting a refresher this is a great read.
For many persons who are undecided about entering seminary and who have even questioned if a theological education is necessary in order to lead. This question and many others are answered in the book. Trust me if you weren’t thinking about seminary before, you would be after reading her book. I know I am.
Thank you Kristen Padilla for such an amazing book.
PS: I received an Advance Reader Copy of this book. These are my honest reviews.
