The organizing theme of this issue is the well-being of the Christian family, and one of the acute pressures felt within the family unit today is the plight of the working mother. The fact is that the familiar ideal of the two-parent, single-career family is the exception rather than the norm. With the increase of single-parent families, economic strain~, and opportunities for talented women to seek professional careers, new stresses face the home. So how can Christian families manage more effectively, and how can the church alleviate family burdens? Perhaps an interview with a working mom will point the way forward.
