Balanced: Finding Center as a Work-at-home Mom
Real Encouragement for Real Life
Many thanks to the author and Litfuse Publicity for providing me a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.
As a work-at-home mom it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and defeated before you even manage to get both feet out of bed in the morning. The toddler is screaming, your computer screen is flashing, the dog just threw up on the living room rug, and of course the coffee maker is broken. No, really, that was my morning today. You know that being with your children is the most important job and you wouldn’t trade that experience and joy for anything, but you’re tired and your creativity is being sapped while you run numerous errands and juggle the care of family, home, and work. Fear not! Tricia Goyer brings an inspirational e-book focused exclusively on you, the working Mom. Unlike many work-at-home mom books that focus only on the how-to of getting through the day and getting the laundry done, Goyer openly admits that there are days it doesn’t ALL get done and that’s OK. She encourages us to “Just do what you can.” She goes beyond the overly simplest and overused suggestions for keeping a schedule and making meal plans to encouraging moms to put their trust and love in the Lord. Filled with inspirational quotes from Goyer and other work-at-home Moms, Balanced is an enjoyable and quality read. Seriously, I’m highlighting like crazy and several of the authors and books she has referenced are now on my “must read list.” Moms, pick up a copy! This one is worth your time 🙂
