In "Third Calling," Richard and Leona share their story to make the reader comfortable with the more familiar first two-thirds of life, before launching into presenting the less familiar third with a helpful development plan model plus meaningful quotes and scripture, critical questions and helpful research throughout the manuscript. The book identifies a new life stage for Baby Boomers and all future generation. The Lord's third calling is better assured by early planning achievement.

While seeking to know a heavenly Father as elusive to her as her own had been, her life becomes a tapestry of struggle, faith, courage, and, in the end, triumph. And she does not waste her cancer.
