Surrendered Balance Giveaway and Review

If you missed part 1 of my guest post with the author of Surrendered Balance, Hermina Krista Pettiford, then click here.

Speaking from personal experience, I know that I have stressful days. That seems like such a mild statement, but honestly there are days where I sit back and question how will I make it through the end of this day, and I haven't even gotten out of bed yet. Being a wife, a mom of two teenage girls, a homeschool teacher, and a busy blogger/book reviewer, I can have days where I simply can't manage to organize my thoughts let alone my home and the worst part is that some times I am so busy I keep telling God, I'll be with Him in a moment. Ever have days like that? Feel like we are kindred spirits or share the same issues?

Hermina Krista Pettiford, wrote an amazing book for busy moms and Christian women just like me and you, called Surrendered Balance, and it walks you through just how to get back the balance that is missing from our super busy, time managed, over scheduled and committed lives.

She covers every topic from Family Life, Making Healthy Dinners, Nourishment for our Souls, Knowing Our Self, as well as my favorite Rest and Revitalize. Each one reminds us what it takes to maintain healthy balances in each of those areas as well as perfect scripture references from the Bible. She even has included a weekly plan to help you maintain in each of those areas for 52 weeks so you can see how far you have come and what areas you need more work in.

I received Surrendered Balance by Hermina Krista Pettiford compliments of Pump Up Your Book for my honest review and love how simple it is to work on the areas of my life to help me gain control when life tends to slip away from me. This one is a must have for any Christian woman! I give this book 5 out of 5 stars!

  1. I wrote this book out of my own personal experiences but also with the idea that most women have these things in common. Balance in life, especially for the busy is something that has to be maintained after it is obtained. Surrendered Balance was written to help with the maintenance of balancing a busy life.

  2. I am so happy and humbled to know that I received five stars from a book reviewer who is a busy mom like me!

  6. I'm too late to leave a comment but it does sound like a very good book. I also wanted to tell you that I'm sorry I'm not here often. I just don't read a lot and other who do deserve to win. For some reason I don't remember you being a homeschooler.
