"How do you balance family life and ministry life?"
This has to be possibly THE most frequently asked question in forums like this, and especially by young women in that fabulous season of early motherhood. However having said that, the question applies to pretty much every season of life, because there isn't a season in any of our lives, where we don't (or shouldn't) feel something of the stretch and pressure of that new season.
Have you noticed that one word dominated this first paragraph ... Seasons!!
FAMILY LIFE is full of seasons and MINISTRY LIFE is full of seasons ... and the "art of balance" is to recognize, discern, adapt, navigate, appreciate, be thankful and of course, apply WISDOM to whatever season or "collision of seasons" you are experiencing.
