Discover God's view of the successful woman

Should a woman work? Can a woman be feminine, godly, and ambitious? Is work only for women who need the income? Is there any sanctified ground between the stay-at-home mom and the aspiring executive?

Whether you are married or single, young or old, and whether you work inside the home or in the marketplace, Carolyn and Nora create a rich vision for fulfillment through an understanding of the compelling foundation for the biblical call of productivity.

Far from the stone-throwing arguments that often occupy the discussion around women, work, and the home, Carolyn and Nora show how the redemptive message of the gospel allows the Bible's teaching on the role of women to coexist with ambition. It creates a fresh vision for the profit we all gain from encouraging female contribution in the home, society, and church.

If you've ever wondered whether you're living the life that most glorifies God, The Measure of Success will help you answer that question.

Author Biography

Carolyn McCulley is the author of Radical Womanhood: Feminine Faith in a Feminist World (Moody, 2008) and Did I Kiss Marriage Goodbye? Trusting God with a Hope Deferred (Crossway, 2004), as well as hundreds of articles for publications, including Christianity Today, Boundless.org, and the Washington Post.  She is also a contributor to Sex and the Supremacy of Christ, edited by John Piper and Justin Taylor. Her commentary is found on her own blog, Radical Womanhood, as well as on her guest posts for the blogs of Desiring God, True Woman, The Gospel Coalition, and Christianity Today’s “Her.meneutics.” She is a frequent conference speaker and the founder/owner of Citygate Films LLC, a documentary film production company based near Washington, DC. She is single and the proud aunt of six nieces and nephews.

Nora Shank was born in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. where she was raised with the thought that womanhood was more than the big city idea of work. Her parents worked to ground her in rich theology to balance the demands of education and enterprise. She ran a successful catering business while pursuing post-graduate education as a Registered Dietitian.  She now works as an on-call clinical dietitian for several hospitals, serves as the nutrition education liaison to underserved populations in her community, and works with a private practice consulting group. She currently resides in Mesa, Arizona with her husband, Travis, and her two children, Kate and Grant.
