2 - Couples Pursuing Career and Family

Session 2

In session one, Bonnie talked about how important it is to be a supportive spouse, especially when it comes to contributing to home responsibilities. In Session two, Bonnie will talk more about supportive spouses, and how a couple can effectively pursue career while remaining invested in their family.

Sometimes there might be sacrifices that need to be made when spouses both have careers. There will be days of frustration but, in the end, we can find a rhythm that works when we have proper expectations. 

During your prayer time this week, take some time to reflect on your household. Think of some ways you can contribute to your family differently. Be prayerful about how you can support your spouse more intentionally this week as well.
