Women & Work: Bearing God’s Image and Joining in His Mission through our Work (Paperback)
God gave His people work to do in the Garden of Eden before sin entered the world. Work is not untouched by sin, but it is good, as God allows us to image Him and the way He works through our lives.
Vocation and work are often a charged topic for women - inside or outside the home. Be a homeschool teacher or send your kids to public school? Wash clothes and dishes to the glory of God or work in the corporate world for the same?
In this practical book on the theology of work, read wisdom from women who represent all the realms of where a woman might find herself working and discover:
- how to think about calling
- how to work from weakness
- how to find joy in wise stewardship, no matter the field
- how to join the mission of God in both motherhood and childlessness
- how to image God in both secular and sacred work
- how to manage and work with men
- how to grow through conflict
All work is Kingdom work. As women, let's join together in celebrating the good gift of work.

“This book is a must-read. Every woman, no matter what season she is in, will find herself somewhere within these pages. 20 years of leading in Corporate America, and I have never read a book that so accurately captures the plethora of issues that we contemplate as Christian women who work and the variety of journeys we are on. I am confident that women will feel seen and encouraged from chapter to chapter as well as emboldened to keep going! Our hearts, hands and feet need this transformative content. This is a book I want all of my friends to read and that I will personally come back to again and again.”

"As image bearers, we were created to work. We are all called to leverage our lives for the Great Commission every day through our God-given callings, no matter our job title. I respect and admire so many of the contributors to Women & Work and believe this book will be a gift to many as they seek to fulfill God’s purpose for creation through their work."
