Palmer, Parker J. Let Your Life Speak: Listening for the Voice of Vocation. Jossey-Bass. San Francisco. 2000.

A short read to help reflect on life and living. Palmer's work uses some religious references as metaphor alongside stories from his own life.

Questions to ponder:

  • What is my unique, authentic way and gift?
  • Where does my authentic self meet the worlds deep needs?
  • Am I living in a way that contradicts some deep truth about me?
  • What do I need to do to embrace my own wholeness (weaknesses, too)?
  • How can I address my fears?
  • How can I best live in my community and create abundance for it?

Practices suggested:

  • Writing in a journal
  • Reading reflectively
  • Meditating
  • Connecting with your spirituality
