Called Out is a deeply personal book from Paula Faris, the beloved on-air reporter for ABC News and former co-host of The View. She shares her journey through conquering fears that nearly kept her from the high-profile, high-stakes world of broadcast journalism, and then the dangers when that world threatened to consume her. She burned out and faced public humiliation, physical breakdowns, and family struggles. But along the way, she heard God gently calling her out of that dangerous place. As she struggled to find who she was outside of what she did, she discovered her true purpose and true calling. Today, she is the host of ABC's popular podcast Journeys of Faith.
Written with passion and conviction, this book reflects on what it truly means to be called, how to move past the fear holding you back, and how to walk in God's path for you.

I have always enjoyed watching Faris, I could never understand why she took a seat on The View. She had no place on that awful show. I love when she is on Good Morning America. So getting to read about her vocational calling and how (she admits this) she was a workaholic. Hearing about her journey was like sitting with a close friend and hearing them tell YOU their story.
I felt a connection to Faris. I have so much respect for her after reading this.
This is a very inspiring read, full of hope and encouraging advice and so honest.
I gave this book 4 stars. I HIGHLY recommend it.
