Julia Child

Audio / Produced by The High Calling


In a book review, Lorna Williams quotes Julia Child. "I fell in love with French food—the tastes, the processes, the history, the endless variations, the rigorous discipline, the creativity, the wonderful people, the equipment, the rituals. I could hardly bear to be away from the kitchen. What fun! What a revelation! How magnificent to find my life's calling!"

Julia Child, colorful and loquacious, found delight and passion in her work. She embraced it.

This is Howard Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge. When was the last time you thought of your work as magnificent or fun? Julia Child turned her personal joy into a vocation. We should pay attention to our enthusiasms, our delights, and our passion . . . in the high calling of our daily work.

Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.

(Rom. 12:11)
