As working women struggle to find mentors in today's society, Working Women of the Bible asks, what if the women of Scripture are the very mentors we've been looking for?
Most working women today understand they can never be Superwoman. But if Superwoman is unattainable, whom are we trying to emulate? Is the Bible completely outdated, or does it offer a blueprint, full of real-life, culturally relevant examples for the twenty-first century working woman? Can we actually find female mentors in the Bible—women who defied cultural norms and held positions of power and influence?
Working Women of the Bible confronts these questions with heart and humor, and offers surprisingly simple yet potentially life-altering answers.
Susan DiMickele has been a trial lawyer for nearly 18 years and a mother for 12 years. Susan is the author of Chasing Superwoman: A Working Mom's Adventures in Life and Faith (David C. Cook, 2010). She has authored articles in both secular and faith-based publications, including, "War of the Worlds," a recent article in Home Life Magazine (February 2011) that candidly discusses the need for common ground between stay-at-home mothers and mothers who work outside the home. While Susan strives to be at the top of her profession, her greatest desire is to use her God-given gifts to be the woman he created.
