Great book for people who spend most of their days caring for others! Mar 3, 2006
This book is great for those of us who spend our days caring for others-young and old alike. People who are always focused on caring for the needs of others need to be reminded of how important their own physical needs are and how important it is to develop a routine to take care of themselves so they will be able to care for others. If our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, then we have been charged with the upkeep of those same temples. This book does a good job of reminding us of that! Great reading and definitely one I will recommend to all my friends-especially mothers with kids at home!
A Makeover For My Spirit Feb 14, 2006
I was a divorced mother with two pre-schoolers, overweight and unhappy with my job. Then I got breast cancer. I'm okay now that the treatment is over. I figure it's time for an extreme makeover. So, I heard about Changing Habits from the People's Pharmacy Radio Show and I love it. I read it over and over again to remind me how much control I really have. Debbie's words are so inspiring and real. I don't feel like a victim or act like one anymore. My children are happier, I lost a dress size and my job isn't so bad - at least I have one. Changing Habits really did change my life.
It's possible to take care of yourself first. Nov 7, 2005
Changing Habits is the ideal book for people who don't have enough hours in the day. We superwomen often forget to add ourselves to the To Do list. This book offers a sensible plan to take care of yourself first so that you have the energy and stamina to take care of everyone and everything else in your busy life.
It touched me! Nov 2, 2005
This book is a MUST for all parents, children, siblings, teachers, friends and spouses. Debbie talks right to you, as if she know what you're thinking. She stresses how important it is to take care of ourselves, and enjoy ourselves in the processs. I loved the section on how to make housecleaning spiritual (and fun). I will buy this book as a gift for a friend who just had her first child.
