Balance in ministry, work, and life doesn’t really exist.

But you can thrive in the tension between them.


Frank Bealer walks you through a straightforward formula that can prepare you for the unexpected (and not-so-unexpected) events that distract you at the most inconvenient moments. The Myth of Balance can help you:

  • Embrace the idea that ministry is exceptions.

  • Recognize the warning signs of catastrophe brewing from your “busy seasons.”

  • Create a predictable plan for handling the unpredictable things vying for your time.

  • Make the necessary shifts in the way you lead and manage your life so you can continue in ministry for the long haul.


“From the time I met Frank while he was a key leader at Elevation Church, I knew he had a different energy. Not only is he off-the-charts creative, he’s also a planner and strategist. He’s a strong leader of people, and a purposeful dad for his kids. He and Jessica have put together a remarkable way to give priority to what matters most. But I’ll let you read that for yourself in this book.”—Reggie Joiner, CEO Orange / reThink Group

“Getting to work with Frank these last few years has been one of my favorite parts of being connected to reThink. Why? Because Frank knows what it takes to build a life worth living, both at home and at work. I’ve benefitted from hearing about these ideas first hand, I think you’ll love them too.”—Jon AcuffNew York Times bestselling author of Do Over

“This great book gave me powerful and practical baby steps I could take this month to be the mom and minister I want to be. Thank you, Frank, for giving us a resource that helps us intentionally live out the priorities that we long for, and that God intends for us.”—Kara Powell, PhD, Executive Director of the Fuller Youth Institute and Youth and Family Strategist for Orange

“If there is anybody that can speak more into the tension of balance in ministry, family, and devotional life it’s Frank Bealer. He has managed it so well and I know as you read this book you will find the insight you need to rise higher in your life and ministry.”—Craig Johnson, Sr. Director of Ministries, Lakewood Church

“What Frank has here is something everyone needs to read. Balancing expectations and preparation is key for anyone living in today’s fast-paced society, and I believe gracing ourselves with room for interruptions is indispensable to a healthy and happy life.”—Jarrid Wilson, Pastor, author of Jesus Swagger and Love Is Oxygen
