In our modern and mobile society, the range of answers to the questions “What am I supposed to do with my life?” and “How do I know when I’ve found my purpose?” can seem endless and overwhelming. Following the Path by Joan Chittister brings the insights of her years of teaching and contemplation to bear on this issue, providing readers with a new way forward. Through her examination of spiritual calling and gifts, change and discernment, she leads readers home to the place where, finally, we know we fit, where we are the fullest of ourselves and a gift to the world, a timely and much needed message that many will be happy to hear.

Sister Joan addresses these questions and more:
What does enjoyment have to do with happiness?
What does it mean “to have a purpose”?
How do I know I’m doing what I’m meant to do?
Is it ever too late to start over?
