    Thank you for sharing this book with us. Being a Christian woman, it is sometimes difficult to be taken seriously as a leader. I will definitely look into this book. Thanks, Jessica! 🙂

      Agreed. It was very different from any book I’ve read by a female Christian author.

    Often I find women especially christian women defensive when it comes to working! Working outside the home, not working outside the home, being a woman leader or not leading at all, let’s be who God has called us to be, judging not those God has called to a different station than our own. Stand tall as Christian woman embracing all seasons of life! As you wrote Jessica, “These authors teach women to respect any choice or circumstance they see others in while they thrive in their own.” To thriving in all seasons…
    Looking forward to this read…

      Exactly, Lisa. These women were no strangers to mom guilt and the shaming that occurs among women about the choices of others. It was really refreshing to read something that embraces the choices of individual women so long as they are being faithful to who God created them to be.

      I think you will especially enjoy the first section on the history of work in relation to women. That was my favorite part.

      Also, when they started to discuss the Proverbs 31 woman in their theology of work section, they said something along the lines of “the first thing you need to know about her is that she’s not real.” Ha!
