Dick Lyles

TOPIC:   Answer YOUR Call: Reclaim God's Purpose for Faith, Family and Work.

Each person has a unique set of natural gifts meant to be used in concert with God's supernatural graces.  But what does that mean for you right here, right now? How can you discern your calling in the New Evangelization, as it applies to your current circumstances, your family, faith and work?   

Authors Dick Lyles and his wife Martha, published a book of the same name (Servant Books, 2013) that offers a guide for discerning your unique call. Culling from Scripture, the Catechism, the writings and teachings of Saint Maximilian Kolbe, and from Dick's background in leadership and corporate organization, and Martha's background as religious educator and development director at their parish, they prayerfully wrote the book together and now have led several retreats on the topic as well.  The book has only been out less that three months and is already flying off the publisher shelves; both retreat attendees and book readers are responding with rave reviews.  Find out more, and learn how to discern God's unique call for YOU, when Dick talks about how You can answer your call, and why it is so important to do so.
