Embracing Your Second Calling

Embracing Your Second Calling By Dale Hanson Bourke

This is a Christian book about embarking on the second part of your life as a woman. There are a lot of scriptures and references to other books in it. Also it's full of little Acts and Reflections for the reader to do.

The book was well written and it was an easy read. It just wasn't for me though. Maybe it's because I'm only in my mid 30's. Normally I can read a book of that size in 2 hours. This took me a few days just because I couldn't get into it. Like I said, it was well written, just not for me. I'm passing it along to my mother whom I know will thoroughly enjoy it and appreciate it more.

The main thing I got out of the book was to not hold onto your past. You don't want to spend the rest of your life as a bitter person. The was a lot of good reflection topics and scriptures to ponder. She spoke a lot about Naomi and reference to her a lot.

The book was inspiring and I would recommend it to woman who are in their midlife.
