Publisher's Description

Don’t Just Prevent Burnout—Find Joy and Purpose Again

You began vocational ministry full of hope but now find yourself checking off a never–ending ‘to–do’ list. Barbara Bancroft presents a ministry vision that is positive without being fake, lifting the burden of stereotypes and expectations from women’s shoulders, and teaching them to depend on Jesus every day. With humor and compassion, she helps women rediscover joy and purpose in ministry.

  • Moves women beyond burnout prevention strategies to joy and purpose in ministry
  • Down–to–earth, humorous writing style disarms women reluctant to read another book about ministry
  • Realistic portrayal of ministry is positive without being fake, ringing true—yet offering hope—to those who struggle
  • Confronts expectations, stereotypes, and even the ‘mythic ministry model’ of Proverbs 31
  • Addresses disillusionment, isolation, and loneliness with compassion and hope
  • Gospel–centered with a kingdom focus, showing how the gospel works in us in order to accomplish God’s purposes
  • Questions and devotional material at the end of each chapter make it ideal for small group or individual use
