If only I could spend more time at home and (much) less time at work.
If only I knew what to do to make that change.
If only I could achieve that elusive goal of work-life balance.
In the spare moments of calm and quiet before your head hits the pillow, do thoughts like these cross your mind? Do you long to be at home when you’re working overtime for the eighth week in a row? Does your work pull you away from quality time with your spouse or kids, even when you’re home? When you’re home, are you really there?

In Search of Work-Life Balance presents a biblically based, practical, and achievable way forward for anyone who’s wrestling to find a functional balance between the necessity of work and the desire to spend time with those who matter the most.
