Women Can Have It All, Just Not at the Same Time

In the last sixty years or so, the lives of women have embraced many changes. They have gained freedom to make decisions about relationships, family, careers. Considering possibilities and making choices can be overwhelming, particularly if considered in the frame of a current worldview. Kara Martin reminds us that God values all spheres of work, and there is purpose in the seasons of life.

"However, so much freedom of choice has also led to enormous pressure on women. An unintended consequence of such advocacy is that many women have found themselves in a terrible bind: exhausted and harried as they try to maximise a career, bear and raise children, and stay at the forefront of education, as well as enjoying a satisfying set of hobbies. Have you felt that pressure? I certainly have."
