Unpacking the Book –
This book encourages us to see our lives through God’s lens. And to “do the thing” He places on our hearts. Rebecca gives clear, concise ways to live this out practically, discovering what to let go of, what to explore, and how to proceed. Therefore, it is an essential book for women who want to serve God best.
Here we will learn:
- How to deal with fear and lack of clarity to venture ahead into our special projects, talents, or causes.
- Pursue our goals with grace and confidence.
- Discover our glory goals. Prioritize goals related to our calling as you move forward with gumption and grace.
- Purse the passions that stir our souls.
- See our gifts and talents from a gospel-centered perspective.
- Overcome negative thought patterns so you can brainstorm, develop, and create with the confidence of a go-getter girl!
Rebecca comes alongside us as a cherished friend and cheerleader, leading us from start to finish with personal stories and encouragement. This interactive book includes six video sessions for free via a QR code in the introduction. They are strategically placed after every two chapters in the book to encourage you along the way. These videos, prayer prompts, Scriptures for reflection, and goal planning will lead us to pray about what God reveals. Included are diagrams and charts that help us go further in discovering our gumption and grace.
In addition, at the end of each chapter is the Do the Thing Manifesto with each chapter’s manifest statement added on. There is also a note page for each video.

Some Favorite Quotes –
In “Do the Thing,” we find our Kingdom perspective, and our helper is Christ, for when we are weak, He is strong.
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.2 Corinthians 12:9-10 ESV
We discover our thing by looking at where we are naturally gifted. Our interests and passions become sacred work when we use them in adoration of the King.
“We discover our thing by looking at where we are naturally gifted. Our interests and passions become sacred work when you use them in adoration of the King. #bookreview #dothethingbook #GodscallingTweet
“Whether it’s sewing, baking, cleaning, or couponing, your interests, and passions can be considered sacred work, especially when you use your talents not to gain praise from other but to shout praises in adoration of the King.” Rebecca George P.37
“Our glory goals are never a cute little side hobby in the eyes of God.” Rebecca George P. 71
Your obedient yes now will lead you toward what He has already prepared next for you. Rebecca George P. 81
“God has wired each of us with unique gifts and a voice that He wants us to use”. Rebecca George #dothethingbook #bookreview #ourcalling
If we actively partner with God, He will empower us with His strength to serve Him and love others.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERS WITH REBECCA:
Why did you write Do the Thing?
When I think about the last decade or so of conversations I have had with women and the themes that consistently come up, the topic of our "calling" is very common. I often see women struggle in the areas of insecurity, doubt, comparison and more. I felt compelled to share my own journey and struggles in these areas and lead women toward the truth only found in God's word that will help us walk through these moments with more confidence and clarity.
Who do you think would benefit from reading the book?
Any woman who desperately desires to see her work and her calling from a gospel-centered perspective and wants to be faithful in the hard moments that we all bump up against. At the end of the day, my aim was to look at the source, ScriptureScripture itself, as our guide for the conversations we'll have inside the pages.
Would you talk about what is a glory goal and how to know that it is not a cute little side hobby?
A glory goal is my way of defining this "thing" we are searching for and hoping to be faithful in as we explore the content of the book. It's the way that your gifts and talents can be used in this season to build the Kingdom and advance the gospel. Sometimes this might feel mundane (or even really big and scary), depending on your season, but it's a way to define your calling a little differently. However, no assignment given to us by God is "little" in His eyes. So we shouldn't treat it as such either!
