The Echo Within
Finding Your True Calling
The Echo Within by Robert Benson is a delightful little book. The first half had me nearly in tears as Mr. Benson encourages the reader to search within for the clues for the answer to "What do you want to be when you grow up?" He instructs us to listen to the words that people speak into our lives because sometimes it's God speaking through them. He shows us how little things can be what makes the lightbulb go off when we finally get it right.
The second half of the book more or less tells how Robert came into his own calling as a writer. It wasn't as inspiring as the beginning of the book but was still interesting.
This book can help you figure out what your calling is, especially if you've ever tossed around the idea of being a writer. You'll learn that whatever it is that you find your hearts desire in and IF you do it then you'll be a something, just like the author.
I think I'll pass this one on to my teenager. Maybe saving him from years of wondering what to do with his life.
