Wonder women?

Kate Fowler Harris, executive director of the Washington Institute for Faith, Vocation, and Culture, has recently released a new book in Barna’s “Frames” series about modern women trying to balance faith, career, and family:

“You can be anything you want, child.” It’s a message of empowerment and it’s beautiful. But, as many of those young girls grew up, a message that was once meant to convey opportunity has begun to feel like a pressure cooker. What once was “You can have it all” has now become “You need to have it all.” You need to have the perfect job, the perfect husband, the perfect house, the perfect kids, the perfect play dates and craft nights and date nights and DIY Pinterest projects and #nofilter Instagrams.

What does it mean to be a woman in a world like that? Where does vocation fit into all this? What does a holistic idea of self mean? 

You can read more about it here, and listen to Kate talk about why she wrote the book below.

About Patheos Faith and Work Channel

The Patheos Faith and Work Channel is a place where conversation happens about work and faith. We talk about all sorts of things: daily life in the workplace, what the Bible says about work and vocation, economic systems and their relationship to Christian beliefs, how to know if God is calling you to a specific job, and how the local church can better equip workers. We draw on content from many other websites pondering these issues to find stories, testimonies, tips, biblical wisdom, and challenges for individuals, businesses, pastors, and civic leaders as we work to create a society where God's economy brings human flourishing for all.
You can listen to the vision as expressed by our leadership and content partners here, and we also invite you to check out some of the great blogs on issues of faithfulness in daily life hosted by our friends at the Patheos Evangelical Channel.
