Discovering our calling requires that we listen to God’s voice, receive feedback from others, and take note of the patterns in our lives. For Amy, her calling is to care for church leaders who lead children in the church.

Does He really love me? Will this pain ever end? Why did He give me a “broken” child? Continue reading
