Jessica Schroeder considers the complexities of separating work demands from the rest of our daily activities and offers ways to rethink how we might flourish as God's children.

We are God’s children. We are made to flourish. So why doesn’t teleworking always feel like thriving? Boundaries. 

What do boundaries look like in an email-driven age of working from home?"
