  • 06:00 PM


“Every person is the way of the Church”-St. John Paul II

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, Burgis and 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.
Unrepeatable will equip you to:

• Renew your parish, school, community, or company by empowering every member to discover, embrace, and fully
live out their unique calling
• Confidently teach and mentor young people in critical skills of discernment and decision-making
• Know and be known by others in a deeply personal way through a technique that unlocks and awakens the deepest
desires of the heart
As we enter into the stories of others’ lives, we enter into the story of God’s love. There is no greater adventure. Unrepeatable
invites you to be a part of it.

This spiritually grounded, easy-to-read treatise is a solid piece of research, and yet, is still packed throughout with supporting anecdotes that the reader will recognize and appreciate. Eminently practicable Unrepeatable: Cultivating the Unique Calling of Every Person is for every Christian, especially the teacher, counselor, or spiritual director, who is truly serious about sifting through the cultural morass to find the “right” vocation, rather than just a job.Robert Barron, Bishop

From first page to last, this is a book rich in three vital ways: a keen grasp of our current culture, its challenges and what to do about them; excellent counsel on the nature and skills of mentoring; and a passion for awakening the unrepeatable vocation of every Christian soul. Beautifully written, compellingly personal, and a treasure to read.Charles Chaput, O.F.M. Cap., Archbishop of Philadelphia

Unrepeatable is a timely book that outlines a unique process to discover personal vocation based on the wisdom of the Church and encourages all of us to embark on this game-changing journey.Bob Kieth, Entrepreneur

This book is a call to all of us, personally and as a Church, to help each person uncover their call from God and radically pursue it during their unrepeatable time on earth. A must read for young and old. Saint John Paul II would be proud!Andreas Widmer, Entrepreneur
