When Work & Family Collide by John Maxwell deals with a conflict most families can relate to, the use of time. In particular time spent at work versus time spent at home. When did life get so busy? I can find endless things to fill my time with. Work in particular is a tricky one, a very demanding one. One that supports your family, so in theory you do it for your family but it can also hurt your family. Balance is key for work and family. Andy Stanley walks you through finding balance. He does a great job in helping you see the priorities before you and the choices there are to be made. You do have the power to make a change; He shares how God wants you to make a change if work is cheating you of family life and God will and is able to help you. This book is filled with Biblical insight, real life experiences and sound advice. It is such a relevant topic in our fast paced, more is more culture. If you feel that work dominates your life and decisions, if you feel that you are unable to make changes in regards to this, if you see trouble in your family life you will want to check this book out. Maybe it isn't work that but a hobby or a friend or something else, this book touches on that and the principals learned can be applied to any number or time stealing areas of your life. This book doesn't pretend that the changes will be easy but it does help you see very practical steps you can take to start redirect your time to your family.
I received a copy of this book from WaterBrook and Multnomah publishing for the purpose of this review.
