Overview

A Catholic approach for life's major decisions

Every Chrstian has a Mission. What's Yours?"Is it time to change jobs?" "Should I marry?""Am I called to religious life?"Sooner or later, every thoughtful Christian asks such questions. For everyone ready to make the shift from "What do I want for my life?" to "what does God want for my life?" Fr. Gallagher offers this new book to help you make sense of your major life decisions.Drawing from the timeless methods of Ignatius Loyola and richly illustrated with examples and stories, this book offers practical wisdom for aligning your will to God's will. Fr. Gallagher takes you through each step of the process, including opening your heart to whatever God wants; making use of silence, the Eucharist, Scripture, and spiritual direction; and finding clarity (and what to do when you lack clarity).While this book focuses on the major decisions such as marriage and career and vocation choices, the insights gained here can be adapted to other significant life decisions as well. Fr. Gallagher's clear style makes this book an important resource for all who want to discover where God is leading them, as well as for spiritual directors, retreat directors, and counselors

"Fr. Tim Gallagher has quickly become one of the leading commentators on Ignatian discernment."  —George Aschenbrenner, SJ

"What I most admire is what lies behind Gallagher's book—an extraordinary patience in gathering so many opposite examples . . . in part from his own experience . . . and in part from his reading."  —Reverend Brian O'Leary, SJ, spiritual director and professor, Milltown Institute of Theology & Philosophy
