The Promised Land Of Vocation:
Knowing if You're Called To Marriage, Religious Life, or the Priesthood

By Natalie Smith


Natalie Smith and the staff at www.vocationsplacement.org have observed the vocations discernment process of 1000s of individuals since 2001. Jesus said, "I come that you may have life and have it to the full" (John 10:10). Natalie wishes to share this valuable "life" saving information with you such as:

  1. The 3 sure signs that you're marrying the right person or joining the right community or diocese.
  2. The 5 most common steps in vocational discernment.
  3. How to identify what you truly want.
  4. 4 quick ways to destroy your vocation once you are there (what NOT to do).
  5. The 4 most important words you will ever use in your vocation. Natalie answers other difficult questions like what if you have debt, unsupportive friends and relatives, or what if you are in the wrong vocation? She also offers an extremely clarifying section on sexuality.

Natalie compares the vocational discernment process to the Israelites leaving Egypt and crossing the desert to the Promised Land. In "The Promised Land Of Vocation" you will bring the Kingdom of God to earth. Oh what happiness! Oh what joy! With Natalie's help in this well defined encouraging DVD you will make it across the desert of discernment. You have a lot to look forward to! Don't settle for anything but true love that lasts. And don't give up! It is never too late to co-create your vocation with God.

By Br. Gerlac O'Loughlin, OCSO

NEW! The Experience of being Called by Br. Gerlac O'Loughlin OCSO. This is an invaluable resource: an in-depth step by step guide to knowing if you have a religious vocation. Because of the great detail in which the author handles this intriguing topic it is a fairly large book at 306 pages in size. The book is in four parts:
  • 1. The book begins with "The Human Experience of Being Called," In other words, what does it mean or feel like to "be called" to "any" course or action. There is so much to pick from.
  • 2. Then the author moves on to, what does it mean to "be called" to follow a specific religion or to a specific form of religious values.
  • 3. Then we advance to what does it mean to be called to be a Christian. How do I know I am called to be a Christian? And how do I stay on the path?
  • 4. Finally we conclude with, what does it mean to be called and to grow as a monk, nun, sister, or priest?

The book includes, very detailed information on the dynamics and value of making everything prayer.

Coral Springs, FL 33067

This book is 110 pages of poetry that wonderfully and artfully expresses almost every dynamic of what it means to be human. Is the flesh really that bad? After all, God gave us our bodies as the only vessel we have to get home to Him. We say, "The Flesh is The Hinge of Salvation." The book starts off with a lively introduction to the seven deadly sins and then on to the mysticism of prayerfulness. Then finally the book swings back in forth with poetry that embraces and gives meaning to everything that could happen to us as humans. In the book you will be intrigued by the many different characters applying to God's love from saints to murderers and prostitutes and everything in between.
