Product Description

Who hasn't heard a lot about juggling, balancing, and surviving? Navigating parenthood and professional life is all those things. But amidst the struggle, a life of kids, careers, and busy-craziness can be a privilege-and a tremendous reward. Drawing upon her background as a college professor, writer, mom, and wife, Jordan-Lake helps couples and families navigate life together for joy and purpose. She believes you can sail through the oceans of demands with confidence because you can change the world-not in spite of your children, but because of them.

Publisher's Weekly

After penning three books and having three children, Jordan-Lake writes of juggling the demands of two holy callings-hers as a writer, her husband's as a pastor-with raising kids. What distinguishes this book from the other Christian family-balancing guides that crowd the shelves is its emphasis on the fundamental equality of husband and wife, even while it recognizes that women often bear a greater psychological burden than men when they try to follow their bliss careerwise. The book is also refreshing for its social conscience; Jordan-Lake, who has worked with the urban poor and is an advocate for micro-enterprise loans, is all too aware that merely asking these questions about family and work is a luxury that few women in the world will ever afford. Writing with sharp humor and snappy prose, she draws heavily on her own experiences as well as interviews with other women about how they manage the competing expectations of career and family. Although the book's repeated sailboat metaphors grow tiresome, this stands out as one of the more thoughtful guides to Christian family life for the 21st century.
