I’ve worried over this piece for several days, wanting to say it right, wanting to be charitable and not critical. Because I believe in the message they are sharing. Sacrifice is essential and service is at the heart of gospel living. But only when we take adequate care for ourselves can we live a life of service that is sustainable. And sustainability is crucial if we are to be successful in our most precious stewardships. Namely our spouses and children. Thus the wisdom, “See that all these things are done in wisdom and order, for it is not requisite that a [woman] should run faster than [she] has strength” (Mosiah 4:27).
The post is at Segullah today: All Things in Wisdom and Order.
