Since I’m prone to hyperbole, you might think the subject line is over-the-top or meant to trick you. It’s neither. It’s the truth and I believe this book can do the same for you. In case you haven’t heard, our book for the spring is: Expectations and Burnout: Women Surviving the Great Commission by Robynn Bliss and Sue Eenigenburg.
“Expectations” has become one of the buzz words of our modern lexicon. This book single handedly took this over-used but under-understood word and pulled the curtain back on our lives as cross-cultural workers. I can almost guarantee if you’ll journey with us through Expectations and Burnout , by mid-May you will understand yourself, your family, your senders, your host culture, your team, and God better.
Hyperbole? No. Hope? Yes.
And to show how much we believe you need this book, we are offering a chance to win one of SEVEN copies — four paperback and three kindle — for anyone who leaves a comment on this post. Winners announced at The Grove.
Here’s the plan for the spring and I’m excited because we’ve got enough time to really dive in. We will have guest posts from Robynn, an interview with Sue, and “Ask an Author.”
If you haven’t joined book club before, this is a great book to start. For those of you who like to poke around and read more, Sue has written two other books Screams in the Desert and More Screams, Different Desert. She also blogs. Robynn posts on Fridays at Communicating Across Boundaries and here’s a recent post about a hard birthday.
You’re going to love these ladies and their sincere desire to serve us. OK, I have to tell you Robynn isn’t a fan of KU and if you’ve lived anywhere near Kansas or went to KU (and I did! Go Hawks!), this might be a detriment. But it turns out, K-Staters are people too. Ha. Just kidding. But hopefully this gives you a sense of the fun we’ve been having getting ready for this spring. (And for those who read The Pastor’s Wife, I think of Ingeborg when I start a sentence with “But.”)
So, are you in? Want to win a free copy of the book? Even if you have it, who could you win it for and give the copy to?
Which area of expectations are you sensing God is inviting you to take a closer look at? Leave a comment (and if you want paperback or kindle) and you’re entered to win a copy.
With expectation! Amy
