It’s called Work Shift: How to Create a Better Blend of Work, Life, and Family. And if you’re struggling with this balance, I think you’re going to be so thankful for the insight this book offers.
At the beginning of college I bought into the lie that as a woman I could have it all–that I could sustain a demanding career, spend time with my family, and grow a satisfying marriage without any difficulty at all.
But I’ve come to learn there are only so many hours in a day within the varying seasons of life. And I’ve discovered that while I can’t be devoted to all things simultaneously, I can find a balance among the roles that are most important to me in whatever season I am in.
Work Shift beautifully articulates this balance. It is filled with historical facts and practical examples of women who are balancing their work and family lives in a way that is innovative and gratifying. Anne describes the stories of women who have settled for the traditional status quo, but are creatively working to solve this delicate balance we all face.
The examples of these women inspire hope, that as women, enjoying our work and bonding with our family can be accomplished now more than ever, with the ease and flexibility we are all longing for.
If you’re struggling with the balance of work and family responsibilities, I highly recommend Work Shift as a resource to help you navigate and achieve the balance you’re longing for.
