Embracing Your Second Calling by Dale Hanson Bourke provides opportunities for readers to consider what they want the second half of their lives to look like. It provides many opportunities for reflection. It encourages the readers to ask the questions "Who have I been, "Who am I now," and "Who do I want to become."
I determined that some of the exercises will have to wait until I don't have a child in high school, while even more will have to wait until I don't have a teaching job that forces me to go to work each day. But, it did give me many things to think about and to consider doing now.
This is a great read for spiritual groups or women's book clubs. It would be important for the people within the groups to know each other, because I'm not sure participants would feel comfortable doing some of the exercises with people they don't know very well.
Overall, it's a keeper and one I will refer to again and again. Special thank you to Thomas Nelson for providing me with a complimentary copy of this book.
