Item description for Honey, They Shrunk My Hormones: Humor and Insight from the Trenches of Midlife - Gift Edition by Caron Chandler-Loveless...
Overview From the Publisher This book is a joyful, encouraging, humorous look at midlife issues aimed at the woman approaching or in the midst of this often misunderstood and confusing season. This book's candid essays are funny but not silly, poignant but not sappy, and always insightful, turning to Scripture for a balanced perspective. Loveless engages the reader with lists like "Blasts from the Past Worth Keeping" and a hilarious midlife-awareness quiz.--This text refers to the Paperback edition. Product Description: Maybe you're one of those women whose mother failed to mention certain anxiety-producing and heat-generating experiences now altering your life - or the life of someone you know. In "Honey, They Shrunk My Hormones" Caron Chandler Loveless uses humor, lots of it, to inspire and encourage women approaching or in the midst of midlife. Loveless, a mother of three sons, writes with compassion about more than estrogen and hot flashes; she confronts self-image questions, the empty-nest syndrome, ailing parents, and the fear of letting go among other topics. Chapter titles include "Pardon Me, But Your Midlife is Showing"; "In Defense of the Chicken-Breasted Mammogram"; "Bumper Snickers"; "A Little Whine is Good for the Heart"; and "I Think I Can Face the Music, If someone Will Dance with Me." As Loveless writes, "None of this means the end of the world. It's just the end of the world as we have known it. And as dreadful as that sounds, there are any number of upsides to one world slowing down and a new one cranking up..." Readers will laugh and cry along the way.--This text refers to the Paperback

Reviews - What do customers think about Honey, They Shrunk My Hormones: Humor and Insight from the Trenches of Midlife - Gift Edition?
Witty and charming! Jan 7, 2005
I found this book to be very charming. The author shines when describing the physical angst of midlife. Her humor is gentle and a bit sappy, but very heartfelt. The essay style was a bit inconsistent at times, but still, an easy read. I was disappointed at the overall Christian tone of this book, which I did not expect nor want, and felt it was kind of preachy.
A better, more hilariously humorous read is Julie Donner Andersen's "Parentally Insane: Insights From The Edge..of Midlife!", which covers the gamut of midlife pains and joys of raising children (and babies!) in midlife, physical changes, and midlife marriage.
Hey girlfriend, let's talk! Mar 29, 2004
It's all about knowing you're not the only one! Thanks for this chatty, funny book about the change -- it's all attitude, all the time. Doesn't tell how to replace the hormones, just how to deal with not having them -- but there are other "replacement" books. Caron is a blessing, no matter what your religion.
I am a guy Nov 7, 2003

I'm Not Alone and I Will Survive!!! May 15, 2003
I actually host a book club, so I read alot! This was a great, quick read, but one I will refer to quite often. Caron Loveless is an excellent writer. I got the feeling she is close to God and really sought His counsel about this phase of life. I laughed out loud and cried a lot too. I especially liked her journal entry to herself at age 40ty. Wow! I wish my head was on that straight. It was beautiful! It amazed me how she was able to make you feel the good and the unpleasant throughout the book. You really felt like you were sitting there in one of the chat groups. I am telling all my friends about this book and insisting that they buy it. It's so down to earth with all that you might go through, yet very educational. Caron, you did a great job and I can't wait to read more of your books!
Someone Understands!!! Apr 30, 2003
I have to admit that I am not the worlds greatest reader, however, the ease of gliding from cover to cover with Loveless' openness was a breeze! I was either laughing or crying throughout the book! As I started to read, I noticed I was relating so well to the author, that it felt like we were two girlfriends sitting down for a cup of afternoon tea. I also shared each chapter of the book with whomever was around, whether that be friends, family or complete strangers overseas. I have purchased several copies of the book for friends and currently am looking for my copy which I have probably given away to someone. The book has helped me in this critical time of my life from a mental, emotional and spiritual point of view. Thank you Caron for your sincerity in tackling this difficult topic! Sure do look forward to our next "tea" time together!
