Great book for moms Apr 7, 2008
I thought this was an amazing book. Lisa has a way of giving advice and encouragement that never sounds condescending or preachy. She really has a beautiful spirit. I've given this book as a gift to several of my girlfriends.
Great for moms with all ages of kids Jun 3, 2007
I am always looking for help getting myself better organized and doing what is right not what is easy. This is an awesome book with great suggestions. Thanks Lisa!
A must for all moms!! Mar 21, 2007
Not only is a quick read, it has some great ideas for how to help any Mom with the struggles that she faces every day. I really enjoyed it and look forward to trying ideas in her "rest stops". One note though it is very spiritual, so if that isn't your thing you may not like it as much.
Great book for busy moms Jan 10, 2007
I really enjoyed this book and found it very helpful. Lisa shows busy moms how to take care of their spirits, bodies, souls, selves, and relationships. After discussing the importance of each area, she gives several specific examples of how to take care of this part of you. For example, under taking care of your soul, she lists some fun things to do with your family--such as pillow fights, a paper airplane distance contest (big hit at my house!), making a house out of cardboard and having a meal in it, playing dodgeball (outside!), buying a cake and having them print "Happy Monday" on it, taking the kids to breakfast at a fast food restaurant in their pajamas, etc. I liked that she not only discussed general considerations for us as moms and WHY it is so important to take care of ourselves (and that we aren't being selfish in doing so), but she shows us HOW.
Great book for young mothers Nov 10, 2006
This is a great resource for mothers with small children who struggle with making time for their spiritual side. Many practical suggestions that can be incorporated in everyday life. I would recommend it highly.
