The Storytellers – Episode 011: Dr Joshua Miller

What if we were able to gain profound insight into the unique design, creative drive, and potential destiny of the people in our lives? The bold promise of this book is that we can.

This ability carries an awesome responsibility: We must all be mentors and midwives to the personal vocations of others.

Unrepeatable is about the urgent need for each of us to cultivate the vocations of others and the steps we should take to do it well.

By smartly weaving evocative stories of those who have radically lived out their callings with practical tools for discernment and mentorship, Luke Burgis and Joshua Miller—who have a combined twenty-five years of experience helping people and organizations discover their purpose—turn staid perceptions of vocation on their head.

The Storytellers – Episode 010: Abby Johnson

She was a director at a Planned Parenthood facility in Texas until she witnessed an abortion. Now, Abby Johnson is a pro-life advocate and author of the book, Unplanned which has been made into a movie that will be released March 28th nationwide.

Unplanned is a heart-stopping personal drama of life-and-death encounters, a courtroom battle, and spiritual transformation that speaks hope and compassion into the political controversy that surrounds this issue. Telling Abby’s story from both sides of the abortion clinic property line, this book is a must-read for anyone who cares about the life versus rights debate and helping women who face crisis pregnancies. Now updated with a new chapter covering the latest events in Abby’s journey, in the news, and in changing legislation . . . and revealing the impact Abby’s story has had in the most surprising places.
