Recommended Reading: “Expectations and Burnout: Women Surviving the Great Commission,” by Sue Eenigenburg and Robynn Bliss

  • by

We know that unrealistic expectations can be a part of our lives, especially when we first go to the field. What we may not realize is that women may experience different expectations than men. This book focuses on missionary women (the authors share from their personal experience) and the high expectations we may have, that are so often impossible to fulfill. Their research shows that “eighty percent of missionary women feel they have come close to burnout, whether they were married or single, traditional or tent making, new or experienced.” Great read!
