A new edition of an earlier Andy Stanley's book Choosing to Cheat was released under the less provoking but somewhat more revealing title When the Family and Work Collide and I have not only an opportunity to read the book under the original and now new title, but also to hear Stanley's teaching on the context of the book both in his church and also at the leadership event (where he tailored it more for the church pastor's audience). I was...

Still, Andy is great at not just point a finger, but offering real-life...

As a work at home mom I often have times where my family and my business needs run into each other. Yes, I try to do my work at nap time and after the kids go to bed but that is not always possible and decisions have to be made. With the recent changes in our life creating a need for me to be a bigger help in paying bills these business verses family questions have become harder to answer. When I was asked to review Andy Stanley's When Work...
