Mom, the Minister

Mom, the Minister

Women in leadership delight God by using their gifts at work and at home.
Single Session Bible Study

Overview

She sits in her church office, staring at her business card: Associate Pastor of Women's Ministries. The M.Div. she worked so hard for somehow feels tarnished. She's having trouble balancing her Mommy title with the idea of ministry. Although her degree involved study and perseverance over nine years, and motherhood blossomed in only nine months, she finds herself more connected to her child than to the ministry.

How can she find a workable balance between full-time motherhood and part-time ministry? Can she use her gifts of leadership to lead her children? Will she have to struggle with guilt until her daughter is 18? Who really comes first, God or family?
