Book Review - When Work & Family Collide - by Andy Stanley

When Work & Family Collide - by Andy Stanley.

Typical (excellent) work by Andy Stanley.

For many years and in many places Andy Stanley has been beating the drum to keep your priorities straight in all areas of life.  God, family, finances, work, everywhere.  This come out in many of his books, in most of his sermons, and almost all of his conference speaking.  This book holds true to that form.

The book is quite short, but packed with examples that hit closer to home than you really might want.  But they get at a truth nearly all of us need to hear, including this pastor. 

We only have a limited amount of time in life, it is our most valuable commodity.  Stanley points this out repeatedly, and then move from convicting us of a need to change and rearrange our priorities to practical wisdom that finds much of its foundation in Scripture in applying this all to our lives.

Many people would say their family is their priority, but most of those same people repeatedly do things to undermine that belief.  In this book is the path to move away from that pattern and through that, improve our families, our marriages, and our lives.

Really a book nearly everyone would benefit from, even if you work from home or are a stay at home parent.

I did not purchase this book, but was also not paid for my review.  Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing Group gave me this copy without obligation.
