Women now have professional opportunities beyond what previous generations ever imagined. But as our roles in public life have grown, the church's vision for women's work and calling has not grown with us, leaving us feeling isolated and under-resourced. Christian women face multiple tensions between home and work, navigating complex gender dynamics in the workplace and social pressure to hold together picture-perfect lives.
Joanna Meyer addresses a critical gap in Christian women's discipleship by speaking to the roles we play in public and professional life. Acknowledging the brokenness of workplaces and industries, she provides a theological framework for women's work and influence and offers resources for the challenges of working life. This book will help you:
- Ignite your vocational imagination, with a biblical framework for work and calling.
- Build strength from within, with emotional and spiritual health to support your work.
- Navigate common workplace challenges, with practical tools to help your influence grow.
- Pursue purposeful relationships, collaborating and building strong relationships with others.
Learn from the lived experience of godly female leaders and discover how women can have a redemptive impact through our work.
"Women, Work, and Calling should be on the bookshelf of any female leader seeking to utilize her gifts and ambitions in ways that serve colleagues and honor God. The inspirational stories and practical advice will help women fulfill the unique work God calls them to with a sense of joy and confidence."
