Sound Career Advice for Young Professional Women
4 stars By Iola, Nov 30 2011
In Work Love Pray, Paddison draws on her experience as a senior executive to outline the problems that Christian women face in the workforce, and to suggest ways to maintain and grow as a Christian.  She has a chatty and personable style which makes the book easy to read, and each chapter has real-life examples from Paddison’s own life, and from the lives of other Christian women in business.  One of her main points is how few churches adequately cater for Christian professionals, especially professional women, as the church still has this (conscious or unconscious) expectation that women ‘only’ get tertiary education in order to get a ‘Mrs. Degree’.  Readers are encouraged to use the talents God has given them, and challenged to grow spiritually through reading Christian books that make us think.  This would be an excellent book for a young Christian woman starting her career.  As someone a little older, I found the problems to be consistent with my own experience, and the advice and suggested solutions to be sound.  However, I would recommend other titles for women with children (such as Women Who Do Too Much, by Patricia Sprinkle, which was quoted in Work Love Pray). Thanks to Zondervan and NetGalley for providing a free ebook for review.
