Faith in the Spotlight

Megan Alexander. Howard, $24.99 (240p) ISBN 978-1-5011-4305-2
Today’s young Christian women who wonder whether they will be able to pursue professional careers and maintain their religious values in a highly competitive, secular job market will find an inspiring example in Alexander’s highly successful career in broadcasting. In this autobiography, the 35-year-old Alexander recounts her journey, dreams, concerns, and triumphs as a college student and a young professional who never gave up on her ambitions to become a broadcaster—eventually reaching her goal as a correspondent on Inside Edition and a special correspondent for CBS Thursday Night Football, while also getting married and raising two children. Alexander offers advice based on her personal experiences dealing with high-level executives in the entertainment and broadcasting industries: “My purpose in sharing these stories and others throughout the book is to encourage people who want to pursue and thrive in a career,” she writes. Alexander uses scriptural quotes and references sparingly but effectively. Each chapter ends with a “Takeaway” that consists of several main points from the chapter and an encouraging mini-essay from a well-known professional—mainly writers, entertainment industry leaders, and actors. Focusing on young women who may be hesitant to be assertive in their career ambitions, Alexander’s book will also serve Christian women who have managed to take on arduous professional careers and be wives and mothers at the same time.
