Overview

Today, Christian women are expected to be gifted leaders, faithful and compassionate Christians, competent workers, supportive spouses, nurturing mothers, and efficient homemakers. With all of these various and important roles, it’s easy to see why many women struggle with how to balance the competing demands for their time and attention.

When Andrea Minor first embarked on a career in vocational ministry, she thought she had everything perfectly balanced, but eventually she realized that her relationship with her husband was suffering from her overcommitted schedule. Use this study to help you address the tough balance between home and ministry demands.
