The world is groaning and our nation is in chaos. Recent events serve as reminders of life’s fragility and uncertainty as mentioned often in scripture. Most Christians long to make a difference with their lives but often procrastinate. Many don’t know what to do or how to do it.

In her new devotional book, local author Callie Daruk opens our eyes to the urgency and importance of fulfilling our God-given calling. Her 30-day devotion book is designed to help readers discover at least one thing God wants them to do before they die and launch them toward accomplishing it.

“Death will come certainly, but maybe suddenly.” Matthew Henry

What are we put on this earth to accomplish? Have we asked what we’re supposed to be doing? What are the gifts and callings God has placed on our lives and are we using them? With transparency about her own painful struggle to find purpose, Callie urges readers to examine their hearts in light of life’s frailty.

“Life is not getting any easier and hearts are not getting any softer. How many hearts could be waiting to be softened by your calling?” Daruk asks.

Daruk is an award-winning author and speaker who encourages others to seek Christ with their whole heart. Her writing has appeared in Guideposts, The Upper Room, Focus on the Family, Kids Clubhouse, Charisma, Just 18 Summers, and Nashville Christian Voice magazines.

Rarely missing a sunrise just north of Nashville, Tenn., Callie is a smitten wife, a hands-on mother of three spirited boys, and a recovering pharisee. Despite a 32-year profession of Christianity, she was exposed for the hypocrite she was at the premature birth of her twin sons. After nearly a year-long stay in the NICU with one of her twins, her rose-colored glasses shattered.

Daruk is dedicated to reaching out to the countless women and men who profess Christianity but like she did, draw near to God with their mouths only while their hearts are far from him.

Daruk grew up in Adairville. She and her husband, Frank have three boys, Isaiah 13 and 11-year-old twins Elijah and Joshua.
