Why I'm Leading The Work, Love, Pray Online Book Club
I’m thrilled to partner with 4Word and host the first Work, Love, Pray online book club. Care to join me?
Great, let’s get started. To begin, we’ll answer a few questions.
What are we doing?
We’re going to read – and discuss – Diane Paddison’s newly released book, Work, Love, Pray. Over at 4Word's Blog. Every Tuesday for the next six weeks.
For those of you how haven’t read the book, it’s a much-needed resource for young professional Christian women and Working Christian Moms who are trying to navigate their careers, family, and faith. (See my full review.)
Who is participating in the book club?
Easy answer: You!
And you don’t have to be a Christian or even a young woman (ages 21-40) to join. (Unfortunately, I’m not in that group anymore….)
Work, Love, Pray is for women of all ages, dads, husbands, and even single guys.
Gals, are you looking for a safe place to discuss your careers, dreams, and relationships?
Older gals, do you need some help mentoring the young women in your life?
Guys, do you want to understand young women better?
You’ve all come to the right place!
Why the book club?
If you haven’t noticed, young professional women aren’t exactly flooding our churches. In fact, many of them are staying away from church just because they think Christians are out of touch with their lives. And in many cases, we don’t know what to do with a generation of women who need Jesus more than ever.
It breaks my heart to see young women pulling away from their faith communities. I want to do something about it, don’t you? That’s one of the reasons I want to get the word out about 4Word and Work, Love, Pray -- and I hope you’ll join me.
How does this work?
We’ll be meeting every Tuesday at 4Word to discuss Work, Love, Pray for the next six weeks. This will be our schedule.
Nov 15: Chapters 1-3
Nov 22: Chapters 4-6
Nov 29: Chapters 7-9
Dec 6: Chapters 10-12
Dec 13: Chapters 13-15
Dec 20: Chapters 16-18
You can leave comments on the 4Word Blog. Don’t worry if you fall behind. Just come back, and we promise it will be fun! And we’ll finish up just in time for Christmas!
Bring a friend, and we’ll see you at 4Word on Tuesday, Nov 15!
