About "Shattering Our Assumptions"
Startling Information About Christian Women in Today's WorldThe tug-of-war for the heart of women is real. They juggle priorities. Make choices. Try to wear too many hats, fulfill too many roles. Making peace with their lives only begins when they discover who they are-not who everyone thinks they should be.Based on interviews and questionnaires from more than 1000 women, Shattering Our Assumptions is a bold look at the lives, hopes, and dreams of Christian women today, and at their changing roles in the workplace, home, and church. A book written for Christian women of all ages and backgrounds, Shattering Our Assumptions reveals many startling facts, including:Christian women work outside their homes in greater numbers than the general population-and many work for reasons other than supplementing family income. Women often find that church is a place where they serve-not where they receive spiritual nurture. Two of the sources of women's greatest satisfaction-work and family-are also their source of greatest stress.Shattering Our Assumptions encourages women feeling fragmented by multiple demands. It frees them from stereotypes old and new, and helps them think beyond the comfortable_or uncomfortable_ruts of life.An Honest Look at Real Christian Women
