Writing can be a challenge for anyone, whether you are an experienced writer or not. But then layer on top of that working full-time outside the home. And then layer on top of that being a mom with school-aged children in the home. And then layer on top of that personal challenges and struggles that would knock anyone off her feet. Despite all the above, Dr. Deshonna Collier-Goubil and Dr. Nancy Wang Yuen summoned the strength of will and the strategies that working mothers everywhere utilize to survive and thrive amid the chaos of personal and professional demands, culminating in the writing and editing of Power Women: Stories of Motherhood, Faith, and the Academy. In this memorable conversation with two accomplished and successful mom-scholars, you will discover their secrets to writing success and also how God used their partnership to bring this project through the darkest of days and through to completion.
