Callings

Rs to help former inmates gain the skills and confidence they need to rejoin the workforce Together they demonstrate how work can be about much than just making a living that chasing dreams and finding inspiration in unexpected places can transform a vocation into a calling Their shared sense of passion honor and commitment brings deeper meaning and satisfaction to every aspect of their lives An essential contribution to the beloved StoryCorps collection Callings is an inspiring tribute to rewarding work and the American pursuit of happiness I love StoryCorps and was hoping for a uick uplifting read when I chose this one This collection is truly meant for the audiobook format since each person s story was read by the individual author which gave their words all the meaning Some of the stories were entertaining some were heartbreaking but all of them left me with food for thought and something new to consider Although I was expecting of a focus on how different people came to find their callings and what makes their chosen professions meaningful for them the diverse stories included were still valuable in their own right Overall I was left with a lot to consider and learned a few things along the way which was a decent takeaway from such a short book
