    • You Can Share the Faith: Reaching Out One Person at a Time

      Many Catholics are baffled about how to share the faith, but the good news is it s not complicated. Jesus didn t have a twitter account, followers on Facebook, or a livestream app, though he would have made good use of those. He started with one person, then another, then a handful and his mission grew. Karen Edmisten s own journey from atheism to Catholicism followed a similar low-key, one-on-one model and frames her lively advice. As she moves from an initial impression Catholics are weird to her conversion, friends along the way listen, support, answer her questions and give her the space she needs. In You Can Share the Faith: Reaching Out One Person at a Time Edmisten draws out practical pointers from her own story and the stories of others to help you share your faith confidently and with compassion.

    • Unrepeatable: Cultivating the Unique Calling of Every Person

      "Beautifully written, compellingly personal, and a treasure to read." —Most Rev. Charles J. Chaput, OFM, Cap., Archbishop of Philadelphia "This spiritually grounded, easy-to-read treatise is a solid piece of research, and yet is still packed throughout with supporting anecdotes that the reader will recognize and appreciate. Eminently practicable, Unrepeatable is for every Christian, especially the teacher, counselor, or spiritual director, who is truly serious about sifting through the cultural morass to find the ‘right’ vocation, rather than just a job." —Bishop Robert Barron, Auxiliary Bishop, Archdiocese of Los Angeles   What if we were able to gain profound insight into the unique design, creative drive, and potential destiny of the people in our lives? The bold promise of this book is that we can. This ability carries an awesome responsibility: We must all be mentors and midwives to the personal vocations of others. Unrepeatable is about the urgent need for each of us to cultivate the vocations of others and the steps we should take to do it well. By smartly weaving evocative stories of those who have radically lived out their callings with practical tools for discernment and mentorship, Luke Burgis and Joshua Miller—who have a combined twenty-five years of experience helping people and organizations discover their purpose—turn staid perceptions of vocation on their head. Unrepeatable will equip you to:

      • Renew your church, school, community, or company by empowering every member to discover, embrace, and fully live out their unique calling
      • Confidently teach and mentor young people in critical skills of discernment and decision-making
      • Know and be known by others in a deeply personal way through a technique that unlocks and awakens the deepest desires of the heart
      As we enter into the stories of others' lives, we enter into the story of God's love. There is no greater adventure. Unrepeatable invites you to be a part of it. (learn more)
