I am a wife, mother to three active, little girls, I am also the sole caretaker of my elderly father and I work 30 hours a week as a journalist, office manager for a local newspaper. Most weeks by Friday, my body, mind and soul are exhausted and I need to refuel. Most of the time my life feels like it is out of control, unbalanced if you will.
So when Litfuse Publicity offered me the chance to read Tricia Goyer’s new book “Balance Finding Center as a Work-At-Home Mom”, I jumped at the chance. Yes, I need balance. I need help….
The thing that caught my eye was the fact that Tricia Goyer has been asked many times how she does it all. Tricia is an author and homeschooler with small children. So this was someone I could relate too. Someone who has walked through the trenches of mommie exhaustion and lived to tell about it.
Balance Finding Center is full of information that places God in the very center of us finding balance in our life. Another plus in my book. Too often we become exhausted, defeated and discouraged in our walk through life and turn away from the very One who can help us. Our schedules according to Tricia need to seek first to honor God, then our family. Sweet, simple advice that is practical and helpful.
Another aspect of this book that really helped me was the honesty that Tricia shares. She says that she wasn’t always a balanced wife, mother and author. Her stories how she failed actually helped me to relate and realize that there is hope for me too.
Included in each chapter of this action packed book is a Pause and Reflect section where Tricia guides you how to sit down with the Lord, your spouse and determine what is important and what is not for your individual family.
