As the title suggests, the book delves into the definition of success, particularly public success, and how this secular definition is often so radically divergent from God’s concept of success, as depicted in the Bible. To counterbalance these two different definitions, I define the concept of struggle and all it entails. I also explore our private human struggles, especially those particular to female ministers, given my experience in this field. The difficulties women encounter within leadership roles will be presented and examined, with a specific focus on gender, sexuality, and the pressure to maintain their femininity while being true to the call of God on their lives or true to the integrity of their secular vocation. Sensitive topics such as sexism within the modern church will also be explored, as well as some practical guidelines that address methods of coping with gynaecological and other health problems specific to women. Whereas adult women will more easily identify with some of the issues raised, everyone in leadership will benefit from the information presented. Men, especially those in positions of leadership, will hopefully receive insight into, and an understanding of the challenges faced by women in leadership, particularly women in ministry.
