The husband and wife behind the popular Earls Family Vlogs share their inspiring love story of how an expedition to climb Mount Everest deepened their faith, strengthened their commitment, and sharpened their vision to make a difference in the world.

As a senior at West Point, Harold Earls dreamed of summiting Mount Everest after graduation and bringing awareness to the issue of PTSD in soldiers and veterans. But as a novice mountain climber and newlywed, could he really leave his wife, Rachel, on the other side of the world to pursue such a dangerous quest? After all, Rachel's dream was to be a wife and mother. She knew that her husband's audacious goal might lead to her to give up everything.

A Higher Calling takes us on a beautiful journey through the ups and downs of their relationship, from their unlikely introduction and whirlwind romance to their fairy-tale wedding and the dreams they shared. Dreams that required tremendous sacrifice and faith--in each other and in God.

As their dreams are realized, witness how Harold and Rachel used their powerful bond of love to overcome obstacles and learn that life is about doing versus having, serving versus getting, being versus wanting.

A Higher Calling shows each of us that when God's purpose and our passion meet, we can transcend any sacrifice we make on the mountains of adversity. And as we approach life with an attitude of thanksgiving, we realize that being joyful and living in love is worth it. Every time.

This book blew me away! I loved it so much! I couldn't put it down and finised it in one day. Rachel and Harold of Earls Family Vlogs are my favorite YouTubers and I have been a subscriber for years. Their book did not disappoint. I had no idea what Harold went through on Everest. I was shocked and in awe of what he and his team went through and accomplished. I loved that Rachel and Harold dreamed big and encouraged others to pursue their goals. Their faith in God throughout different times in their life was so uplifting and inspiring. I received an advanced copy of this book from Penguin Random House for pre-ordering A Higher Calling.

I received the Reader's Edition of the book in the mail yesterday, and I already finished it tonight. I am completely blown away. Having followed Rachel and Harold on YouTube for years now, I somewhat knew of their story. But not to this extent. I laughed, I smiled, and I cried. Several times. Reading from both of their perspectives was so beautiful, and I could feel the love and energy put into telling this story. I want to thank Rachel and Harold for inspiring me throughout this book. I've always had a good relationship with God and my faith but sometimes waver on my dedication. After reading, I further understand the difference between "I want God close to me" and "I want to be close to God." After reading, I feel so incredibly motivated and inspired to dream big and listen and communicate with God every day. I highly recommend this book. It will lead you on a journey of emotions. Some of the main themes of this book remind me of my favorite Bible verse: 1 Corinthians 13:13 - "And now these three remain: Faith, Hope, Love....and the greatest of these, is Love."
