Can a sister continue to serve long-term while married with kids?

[#19 Q7] How can I serve the Lord long-term as a sister? I have been so happy serving full-time for the last two years. I am recently married and am 33 years old and we are thinking of having children soon. Serving on the campus pregnant or with a newborn just doesn’t seem feasible. Is this the point in life when sisters stop serving full-time? Can a sister continue to serve while married with kids?

In Question and Response (Q&R) sessions, a group of invited panelists respond to questions submitted by students and young adults during the week. The panelists are generally older and more experienced brothers in the Lord who have the burden to respond to our questions by sharing both the truth from the Bible and their experiences in life.

It is important to point out that these brothers do not presume to have the answers to our questions. Rather, they are willing to provide a response in fellowship, and to encourage us to personally go to the Lord and consider all these things before Him.

“That which we have seen and heard we report also to you that you also may have fellowship with us, and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ.”

-1 John 1:3
