Your journey to discover God’s calling for your life…starts today!

The expression of your gift is an act of worship to God.” —Krista Dunk

You've probably heard that God has a special plan for your life, right? However, you may not have any idea what that plan is or how to discover it. Or maybe you've  discovered a Sunday morning calling, but Monday to Saturday feels dry and unsatisfying. Unfortunately, that is a familiar story for too many of us - God’s people.

Step Out and Take Your Place gives you the practical, how-to information you need to find out what gifts God has equipped you with and what they're for. Action steps, assessment tools, advice, biblical references, compelling real-life stories, how to seek God for His plan, and much more is included—all designed to help you Step Out and Take Your Place.

It's time to step out. Are you ready?

Have you searched for a "how-to," practical resource that can help you discover your God-given gifts and calling? You have come to the right place!

Readers will discover how God has uniquely designed them with important gifts and will learn about Krista’s personal journey from being a frustrated, timid woman of God to a passionate servant who found her place and stepped into it. Step Out and Take Your Place also features candid, personal stories from other pastors, business people, leaders and people of God who share pieces of their own calling discovery journeys, including Jack Canfield, Os Hillman, Marnie Swedberg and Dondi Scumaci.

“Ask Yourself” questions, prayers and affirmations are included at the conclusion of each chapter. View a sample chapter.
