If you're among them, this book will be like a retreat for your soul. One short chapter at a time, you'll find simple steps to bring back the joy and energy of a rich life. What's more, you'll finally understand and learn to manage the sources of your exhaustion--perfectionism, guilt, unrealistic expectations, and difficult people--in a healthy way. Story Behind the Book We have written this book because it will provide the worn out women of today's society with practical solutions to those who want to drop out because they are stressed out. Although some of you will look for quick checklists... wanting to jump to the "just let me unclutter my life" sections... we know the value of uncluttering you heart first. For that reason, we've included chapters for all areas of your life--emotional, mental, social, physical and spiritual. Most other books focus on learning to say no, simplifying your lifestyle, organization, and nurturing your spirit. Our book is unique because it includes all of these but also covers solutions for the root causes of why women do too much.

A Must Read!!! Sep 10, 2008
I was walking in Goodwill and this book jumped out at me!!! I pulled it out and from the title alone, I knew I had to read this book. Every single aspect of my worn out life was touched on in this book. I would highly recommend this book to any worn out women you may know!!!
Practical Advice For The Real World Jul 20, 2008
So much of the advice given in this book is stuff I've heard or learned on my own over the years. You'd think that would make this a 1 star book but nothing could be further from the truth. The way the authors write and share information is very uplifting and motivational. They remind us of what we already know but simply ignore and they give us "the okay" to slow down and really get real with ourselves. I, for one, really needed this book. I've been on overload for awhile and though I knew it was time to slow down, I just coudn't get myself to do it. I'd slow down in one area only to pick up something in another area. I've read this book twice, in two weeks, and I have already begun to implement much of the advice. My hope is that by answering all the questions in the book, and being real honest, I'll be able to stick to the changes and live a much happier and less stressed life. I'd recommend this book to home business owners everywhere--we women put far too much on our own shoulders and it's time to lighten the load.
Women of all ages need this book! Jan 29, 2007
My church recently hosted a bible study with Alice Gray (co-author of this book) as the speaker. The ideas she shared from her book were so practical and necessary for every worn out woman out there in the world! It was as if she was speaking directly to me when she described what a worn out woman is and how I got this way. After hearing her speak I just knew that this book was something special and I bought a copy. This book is truly inspiring and a must read if you want to break free of being overwhelmed, stressed, tired and just plain worn out.
What Others are Saying Jun 22, 2004
Dr. Steve Stephens and I have had a tremendous response to this book. At one of the seminars where we spoke, one lady came up with dozens of red, yellow, and green tabs poking out from the pages. She explained, "The red tabs mean I need to take action on these ideas right away. The yellows will be next and the green I can get to more leisurely." Thelma Wells, National Speaker for Women of Faith, writes, "Years of research, counseling, and success are jam-packed in this practical, powerful book." Bestselling author Liz Curtis Higgs wrote, "Just reading it gave me a sense of peace and the gentle assurance that I CAN make some positive, healthy changes in my too-busy lifestyle." Elisa Morgan, President of MOPS International writes, "Ahh...at last--a pathway out of the insanity!" If you are interested in working through the book with a friend or in a group, there is guide in the back of the book. There are fun ideas to try at the end of each chapter. Because we know women are busy (why else would they be feeling worn out?), we've kept the chapters short and practical.
There's three kinds of clutter in your life...schedule clutter, space clutter, and soul clutter. The book covers them all. (There's even a chapter on how to get a better night's sleep). Dr. Steve and I have found, a woman cannot unclutter her life until she unclutters her heart. Please visit our webpage at www.thewornoutwoman.com. God's blessings!
A Reality For Many Women! Mar 14, 2004
This book lept into my arms from the store shelf!! The title alone spoke to me (and most of the women I know). With it's common-sense, Christ-centered approach to living, THE WORN OUT WOMAN gives practical advice on slowing down and regaining control. I love that the book is 'interactive' with many suggestions on things to do and a reading/study guide for each chapter. This is the type of book you want to get for every woman you know who is doing too much and being all things to everybody -- and slowly killing her soul in the process! I'm going to lead a discussion group on the book because I know so many women who can relate. WE ARE TIRED and looking for a better way! God Bless the authors for bringing it to the forefront and summing it up with one of the most appropriate titles I've seen in a long time.
