Reviews - What do customers think about Life Management For Busy Women (Walker Large Print Books)?
Busy Women! Oct 6, 2008
I have enjoyed this book!! It is very easy to read and has a lot of practical tips for living...
Feels outdated & a Too Perfectionistic for me Sep 18, 2008
First off, I loved the author's use of Scripture and the idea of letting God manage your day. That is advice we all know, but it's so important to be reminded. She pulled out excellent Scripture to make her point.
My issues came a little later when the author discusses priorities and how husbands come first and a night with the girls, last. Why I can appreciate being my husband's friend, it doesn't take the place of girls night, and I'm not going to feel guilty for that being the way it is. This part of the book felt very judgmental to me because life is not the same for us all. In a perfect world, yes, life would be that way and we'd honor our parents and work hard to have relationship with them, all in the correct order. But the fact is, people have imperfect parents and there are many out there who shouldn't be in contact with unsafe relatives. (I'm not one of them, just know people who are.)
I didn't feel this book did enough to qualify some of the "right way" thinking in terms of the individual. I'm all for putting people first. In fact, that's why I'm behind all the time, but I really didn't appreciate the "one size fits all" views.
Encouraging handbook with concencrete ideas May 17, 2007
This is by far my favorite book by Elizabeth George. LIfe management for Busy Women provides not only biblical inspiration but HANDS ON CONCRETE WAYS to apply to your daily life. It has made a tremendous difference in the way I (view) and run my home and life as a mother of 3 under 4, a homeschooling parent, a wife, and a christian woman. I highly recommend this book for anyone seeking to find balance in their busy life and to align their priorities with God's.
Elizabeth George = Religious Martha Stewart Feb 8, 2007
I am very sure that Elizabeth George is a well-meaning person. However, she is a person who mis-uses scripture and is quite legalistic in her tone. She uses guilt, but in lace-laden terms (so it's harder to pick up on). These chapters are no more than "to do" lists, that'll leave you feeling more inadequate than you did before you started the book. She has quotes in Busy Women like, "...a sloppy place or home speaks of a sloppy faith." That is wrong and quite judgemental. I can't even imagine Jesus speaking to someone like this. And to top it all off, she has this whole book devoted to various facets of a busy woman's life, and she doesn't give any advice on working outside the home. In fact, she implies you're not doing what's right if you're not at home as much as possible: "Pinpoint and count exactly how many hours you are scheduled out of the house. Then reduce them drastically so that you can "be there." "
I'm glad some women have been inspired by her, but I've met just as many who have walked away from Elizabeth George's books feeling guilty and destined for failure.
Jesus complimented Mary. Elizabeth George wants every woman to be another Martha.
Life Management for Busy Women Aug 5, 2004
The first two chapters were good: It really is important to pray and to read the Bible. But after them the book turned into a guide book that could be renamed 'How To Become a Stepford Wife'. (For those who haven't seen the film: Stepford wives are PERFECT female robots who only live to serve their husbands) This book doesn't teach life management, it gives you exhaustion because it loads you with a hundred new tasks in addition to your previous ones.
