A veteran of 35 years in congregational ministry, JoAnn Streeter Shade walks alongside clergywomen from the seminary to retirement, with stops in between at the challenges of marriage, child-rearing, midlife, and difficult days. Throughout its pages, the images of spirals, seasons and song are interwoven with biblical accounts of women of faith and the stories of actual ministry experiences. Its chapters articulate the themes that challenge faith and life decisions, validate the tensions inherent in the desire of clergywomen to face these issues in healthy and holy ways, and extend hope for the journey through the seasons of life and ministry.
