Do you long for more passion in your life? How do you define passion?

Many people associate passion with intense romance, adventure, creativity, vocation, or calling. If you ask a pastor or priest to define passion, he or she would likely link the word to the passion of Christ, to the events of Holy Week.

The definition of passion has evolved over the years. Originally the word came from the Latin passio, which means "to suffer."

Woman Overboard invites you to join an adventure of discovering
• how to find out what you were born for
• how to live out your particular calling in the context of your Christian faith
• how to make sense of a broken world in light of the passion of Christ

The passionate life isn't easy, Kadlecek says. Suffering can come when we pursue our passions. We have to take risks; we have to jump overboard. We have to recognize that jumping overboard could be hard, scary, and dangerous. But consider how dangerous it would be to stay put.

When our identity is anchored in the passion of Christ, it frees us to jump. It frees us to take the risks that we've always wanted to take, to pursue the things we've always wanted to pursue.

So what are you waiting for? Dive into the journey of waking up to the passion and gifts around you!
