PRAISE FOR THE MYTH OF BALANCE
“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 Acuff, New York Times bestselling author of Do Over
“From the moment I met Frank I knew he was different. The unique thing wasn’t his high energy. Though it is high! He is a dreamer for sure. The ideas that come out of his head are overwhelming to say the least. The unique thing about Frank, however, is that all of those ideas were actually being put into action and moving toward completion. If you have ever been frustrated that you can’t start, continue, or finish bringing your dreams and ideas into reality, you need to hear what Frank has to say. This book is for you.”
Tom Shefchunas, former Middle School Pastor, North Point Community Church
“As a preacher’s kid, I know what life can be like growing up in the church. I’ve known plenty of PKs who walked away from the church as a result. This is why it was so important for Wendy and me to have our kids not just like church, but love it. This meant making sure that they never saw the Church as competing for our time with them. If you’ve been in ministry for any length of time, you know this is easier said than done. This is why I think this book is so important. Jessica and Frank Bealer walk the walk. They are raising a great family and helping lead a vibrant ministry. This is a practical, how-to book that shows you how to do both. Imagine a world where ministry kids grow up loving and serving the church, and knowing how loved and valued they are by their parents. That’s a strong win. This book leads you there.”
Jeff Henderson, Lead Pastor, Gwinnett Church
“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
“I’ve been waiting on this book for over three years when I first heard Frank speak on this subject. This book is going to help a lot of leaders and their families. I love Frank Bealer he’s the real deal. I learn from him every time I’m around him. I can’t to share it with the leaders I coach.”
Jim Wideman, Children’s ministry pioneer, author, and Kidmin Coach
“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
“Ministry rarely fits into a 9-5 Monday to Friday schedule. There are always going to be exceptions to even the most stringent work-life boundaries. Frank Bealer has written an important book for every ministry staff member and volunteer who wants to follow in the steps of Jesus, while not missing the stops of Jesus along the way.”
Dave Adamson, North Point social media and online pastor, author of Chasing the Light
