Motherhood in the Balance: Children, Career, Me, and God
Juggling the daily demands of career and motherhood is challenging for many of today’s working women. When the question of spirituality is raised they may feel as if they’ve dropped the ball. In Motherhood in the Balance, Catherine Wallace recounts her ordinary, and often hilarious, endeavors to stay sane as she learns to balance the demands of her career with the needs of her family, while adeptly describing the struggles of her relationship with God. Wallace examines her own encounters with a witty and persistent God who thinks that the real problem is not career-vs-kids, but call. This stand-off begins to crumble when a truce is called and the author realizes that nothing can separate us from the love of God.
