About-

Results May Vary addresses the unspoken assumptions and unquestioned expectations about what it means to be a Christian woman in a complex world. Far from offering a simple checklist or selling advice, this collection of essays weaves together a rich variety of voices--from women of different ages, backgrounds, professions, disciplines, and life choices--speaking honestly about the unexpected yet grace-infused twists and turns of life that exude the faithfulness of God in every unanticipated detail. For young women in their twenties and thirties tackling post-college life, Results May Vary offers the wry and diverse stories of real women grappling with real-world issues like friendship, health, money, ambition, vocation, marriage, motherhood, sexuality, and spiritual life.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Results May Vary is an insightful compilation of essays demonstrating the wonderfully diverse and challenging pathways available to women if they are open to exploring and taking risks. A must-read for young female graduates of Christian higher education, as well as for those who mentor them."
--Kris Hansen-Kieffer, Vice Provost and Dean of Students, Messiah College

"Results May Vary is a well-edited volume of essays that describes important life events--being single, married, or divorced; employment; child rearing; professional ambition; friendship; faith and living a life of discipleship--by giving us real stories of real believers in Jesus Christ who authentically share wisdom and pain, joy and disappointment, hope and resilience. A main point in the book is . . . the value of community. Doing life with others is life that is rich, textured, and holistic. I couldn't put the book down--an easy read with valuable truths."
--Shirley Hoogstra, Vice President of Student Life, Calvin College
