FW4 Calling and Complexity Kate Harris 1

There is a new reality for women in the 21st century—it's a different world with different goals than it was even a generation ago. What once was "You can have it all" has now become "You need to have it all." You need to have the perfect job, the perfect husband, the perfect house, the perfect kids, the perfect play dates and craft nights and date nights and DIY Pinterest projects and #nofilter Instagrams.

What does it mean to be a woman in a world like that? Where does vocation fit into all this? How can you maintain a sense of self and motherhood in both decisions? The reality is we can't really have it all—sometimes we have to make choices. This course explores the value and beauty in those constraints.
