Free (nook/Kindle/iTunes/DRM-free) Running on Empty [Xtian Ministry Career Advice]

Running on Empty: The Gospel for Women in Ministry by Barbara Bancroft is her inspirational career advice and challenge-coping guide written especially for women working in ministry, but probably also with perfectly cromulent tips for other faith workers as well, free courtesy of Christian publisher David C. Cook's New Growth Press imprint.

Currently free, probably just for the rest of the day @ B&N, Amazon & iTunes & Kobo (none available to Canadians), ChristianBook (DRM-free ePub geo-restricted to the US-only), and might also be free at other retailers listed on the publisher's webcatalogue page. Probably also free @ Google Play for the US.

Description
You Are Not Fueled by Coffee, Sleep, or Approval

As women, ministry pushes us to moments of insufficiency, exposes our weaknesses, and tests our patience. Some days it feels like a little more sleep, a lot more coffee, and a pat on the back might sustain us. But down deep, we know these things can never fuel our ministries.

Positive without being cliché, Running on Empty presents the realities of vocational ministry with humor and hope. Author Barbara Bancroft draws from her experience as a missionary woman and pastor’s wife to demonstrate how the gospel must be our message to ourselves as well as others. Along the way, she confronts the “mythic ministry model of Proverbs 31” and other stereotypes and expectations that hinder women from enjoying and displaying the gospel each day.

Running on Empty’s down-to-earth, humorous writing style reaches out to weary women reluctant to read another book on ministry. Offering more than crisis management tips or how-tos, Running on Empty reorients women’s hearts and minds to the joy of belonging to Christ and being a part of his kingdom work.

Ideal for small group discussion or personal reflection, Running on Empty stretches beyond burnout prevention strategies all the way to joy and purpose in ministry.
