The Career and Family Dichotomy

Listen to counsel…That you may be wise the rest of your days. (Proverbs 19:20)


My desk is stacked with trial exhibits and deposition transcripts when the phone rings. The caller identification reads HAINES, AMBER—my wife. Our youngest, Titus, has not been gaining weight for six months and even our pediatrician is desperate. I know why Amber is calling before I answer.

“They are admitting Titus to Arkansas Children’s Hospital,” she says.

“When?” I ask, hoping she would say later in the week.

“We need to leave in two hours.”

Today I’m writing about the career/family dichotomy for The High Calling. It’s a sticky wicket, I know, but I hope you’ll join me there for a conversation touching on marriage, family, and career.
