An Inside Look
Who am I? How am I called to live in God's world? Those are fundamental questions every Catholic teen must face. Through the voices of other Christians who have walked the journey of faith, our Vocations Series helps young people reflect prayerfully upon God's calling for them. The series includes a leader's guide and five books that give inside looks from the perspective of a married couple, a priest, a sister, a brother, and a single person.
This series will help your teens make life decisions by reflecting on the wisdom of others' experiences.
